The 7250 had DTMF tones, but had different software and no speakerphone.

The obnoxious sound that you are hearing when dialing are the DTMF tones being transmitted via the speakerphone. The option can't be disabled.

RIM's 'solution' is to do one of the following:

1. Connect a headset (the tones will be heard via the headset instead of the speaker.

2. Dial an entry directly from your phone book

or the solution that I use:

Type the number you want to dial into a blank message and click on it as a "link" to dial.

Not being able to disable those tones is really stupid IMO
