How do I turn off notification sound?


Monday 23rd of January 2012 / androidforums.com
I cannot figure out how to turn off the email notification sound without turning of the phone ringer. I am using K-9 email. The only thing I can find in the settings is to turn off all notification during "quiet time", which also includes the visual notifications. And if I go to Notifications in sound settings, I can only choose between the default sounds and the Zedge sounds that I have loaded. I don't see any option to choose no sound. I don't want to hear "Droid!" every few minutes.

Anyway to change SD insert notification sound without root?


Monday 26th of July 2010 / androidforums.com
Since the system can't access the SD card when it's mounting, I guess there's no way without root to add a custom sound to the system files?

Tasker Notification Sound without actual Notification?


Thursday 08th of August 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I want to set up a tasker profile that makes a sound every time I turn off the screen. Notify Sound and Notify Vibrate work, but they display messages in the notification panel. Instead of Notify Vibrate, I just used Vibrate which worked perfectly. But I can't find the same option for just a sound. Is there anywhere I'm not looking where I can just hear a sound without having a notification?

Can I get Facebook icon badge notifications without an actual notification?


Sunday 20th of October 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I'm a longtime iPhone user (since 3G) who just switched to Android and the Galaxy Note 3 this week. There are several things I miss about iOS, and one of them is badge notifications without the need for a 3rd party app. Ideally, when I'm due a notification from Facebook, I want only a badge notification on the app's icon, like you do in iOS, and I'm getting that with "Missed it!" installed. However, I don't want an actual notification (via audible tone and indicator) in the notification bar. Is it possible to disable notifications via the notification bar, but still have it display a badge notification on the icon? Thanks in advance.

Galaxy S5 notification sound, without a notification.


Wednesday 02nd of July 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
For the past 4 or 5 days, my S5 has been, only when connected to wifi or 3/4G, playing my notification sound but not showing any new notifications. I should add that this seems to be in addition to text, Snapchat, or Facebook notifications that I still get. Could it be possible that there is an app that isn't able to show a notification, like if it were to be turned off in that apps settings? Or is there something else wrong with my phone?Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Email Notification Sound VS Text Notification Sound


Monday 18th of August 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I've had many smart phones, all of which you can have the email and text alerts be two different sounds. The HTC One M8 is setup just like they are. You select the notification sound in the settings app and that changes the email alert. You then go into the text app and from the settings there you can change the text alert to something else. Simple, except the text sound will not change. I've tried everything. What am I doing wrong?
