    Silence the text tone?

    Well as we know if you get a call you can push down on the volume button to silence a call. Well I can't figure out any way to silence a text tone, and it's irritating due to the fact it will play through the ear speaker if I'm on the phone with someone.

    this is a major oversight in software, how is there not an automatic mute text tone for when phone conversation is happening or at least and option in settings to do this, did no one get a text while talking on this phone during development testing?

    Pressing the down volume button on the side mutes the tone.

    I've never had a phone play a text tone while I was on the phone. Usually just a beeb you could hear so you knew you had a message but nothing like this. Also the pushing down on the volume button is not working to silence texts, only incoming calls.

    I use Handcent for text. It has many more options for than the built in text app.

    The notifications setting include the ability to turn off sound notifications and vibration separately, so you can turn off both or just have it vibrate if you want when you are on a call.

    Turn off notifications in the native app and just use the Handcent notifictions.

    It is ad supported, but the ads only show up as a small banner on the settings page.
