Turning 8300 Key Tone off when dialing numbers?
 
Does anyone know if it is possible to turn the key tone off when dialing numbers?

I have turned the 'Key Tone' to 'Off' in the Screen/Keyboard options and this works for everything except when dialing a phone number. I know, I rarely dial numbers. But when I do, I don't want my phone beeping at me.
Please tell me this is an easy fix that I have just overlooked.

Not going to happen. You are hearing the DTMF (?) tones used to actually dial that number. Kids hate it in class as it kinda gives them away! There is no way to stop it!

Greetings and Welcome to the Forum!

Yes there is an easy fix. However it's not without it's drawbacks like anything else. So I would encourage you to read the instructions below very carefully. After which ask yourself this question: Do I really want to do this?

Begin with a full roll of 2" wide duct tape. Begin wrapping the phone with the tape, full width, until you have 331 wraps and it looks like a silver softball.

1) Pros:
Water proof, drop resistant, no one will recognize it as a BlackBerry and steal it, completely silent. Keys will last forever.

2) Cons:
It will take awhile to unwrap it and remove the adhesive residue.

So there, I'm not trying to be a smart ass here... just showing you that we are allowed a sense of humor on the forum... and like you've been advised here, there is no fix. It's what I do when it cannot be changed, and it's a fact of life, not a problem. Apply some humor.

Thanks for being a good sport!

Cheers....:smile:

331 wraps! Yep we are talking a large silver ball for sure!

lol, I love it. With only 330 wraps I bet you could hear a very slight beep, so make certain you count correctly to 331.

I find the easiest workaround/fix for this omnipresent dialing tone issue is called "self-restraint". If you aren't 'sposed to be dialing the dang phone, don't. Just put it away.
