System sounds and such...

    Have a Sammy SG4. Any way to change the system sounds on the device? I guess "system sounds" is the best way to put it. If I hit any icon or navigate through any application, I heat the water drop sound - and it's getting so annoying! Any way to change that outside of turing it off in settings?

    Bonus points: There are some things I'd like to take with me to my new phone, say some live wallpapers and sounds that aren't on the S4 but reside on my S2. Any way to take transfer those?

    I was less than happy with the selection of ringers and tones on the S4, so I copied a bunch from my old phone [rooted Moto Droid Bionic] to the micro SD card.

    The sound it makes is the default sound for the 'unlock effect' for the lock screen. I know with my phone, if I set the unlock effect to 'light' I get a higher pitched sound and if I set it to 'ripple' it makes the water sound. Not sure you can change it beyond that, but I'm guessing you could probably root the phone and change it up.

    Feel like this thread could use a little wake up call. I've only had mine about a week and this water drip sound every time I touch the screen is starting to really irritate me!! Problem is, I like feedback!

    Seems the only option (unrooted) is to live with it or shut it off altogether! Unless I am missing something. Anybody every figure this out?

    Nope, not yet - and I started this thread. Yes, it's annoying!

    I actually rooted my S2 since I was going to move to the S4. I figured that if I screwed it up, no big loss. Want to move some tones and such over to see if I could change the water sound. Since then I have yet to figure out how to find those supposed hidden tones on my now rooted S2. And if I do, I still have no idea if one can change the damn water sound.

    Far as I know, it can only be shut off, but what do I know. Oh, and yes, feedback is good.

    And we await an answer...

    The sound has 3 options from what I can tell. If you select "ripple" you'll get the water sound. If you select 'light' you get a higher pitched sound. I've never used a password or anything like that, but I'm sure that would be a different sound or no sound at all?

    Yes, but that is only for the lock screen. I appreciate the advice though...thank you!

    The setting I'm looking at is "Touch Sound"...its only on or off.
