Default Turning off the key sounds when phone-dialing

Please Login to Remove!

this seems crazy for someone who prides himself on being at least partially BB-savvy, but i cant figure out for the life of me how to turn off the sound when dialing a phone number. even when i'm in vibrate mode (and even with the keypad tone option to off) i cant figure out how to turn of the sound when i'm dialing numbers.

any ideas??

I agree, I've had my 8703e since it was first released with Verizon and then moved over to Sprint and I don't believe you can turn off the keytones when dialing a phone number. It is rather loud and annoying.

Unfortunately you can't turn off the key tones when dialing a number.

Yeah... I escalated this issue thru the ranks of VZW WDTS, and eventually with RIM. RIM's answer:

The only 2 ways to do it are to a) dial from a pre-existing phonebook entry, or b) connect a wired headset to the headset jack (this will simply redirect the obnoxious tones into the headset instead of out of the speaker).

Both 'solutions' are unacceptable IMO

For clarification purposes, the sound only occurs when dialing a new number? if im browsing, texting, or dialing a contact from my phone, it will not beep?

It only beeps when dialing a number in the phone call screen. Text messages are as quiet as your fingers.

Think about it......

How will the carrier know what number you are calling if you don't send it the DTMF tones?

I don't know what you mean by this.. every phone I've had on silent/vibrate mode does not make any noise whatsoever, when while dialing a number. Even while I'm on the phone and need to press keys in automated menus, the phones I've had do not make any noise

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry 8703e (VZW): BlackBerry8703e/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

As I mentioned in another thread, there is a way to dial a "one-time" number silently; simply type it into a memo, scroll the cursor over it, click the wheel and select "dial" from the menu. Not exactly convenient, but works in situations where its very important to be quiet ;)
