Samsung Tocca Lite,GTS-5230: How to delete "alert chirps"?

by howdy754b / June 24, 2013 5:16 AM PDT

Hi folks...

Could someone pls advise on how to delete annoying "alert chirps" when voice mail is received - over 10 loud "chirps" can be heard after I miss a call, and the caller leaves voice mail.
This is a new issue of which I hadn't previously experienced (I've owned this phone for more than 3 yrs, and this problem cropped up a few weeks ago); I don't know how I activated it, much less how to delete it. Also, it doesn't happen every time voice mail occurs, but sometimes.

If anyone can help - thanks ever so much! --- These chirps are annoying!

Just a thought.....

Have you tried going into Settings>Sounds menu? On my Samsung S4, under the sounds menu, I can set "notifications" to silent. Hope that helps.

Thx, but my phone doesn't have "Sounds" in "Settings"; yours is a different model.

Is this an Android phone?

I'm running into the fragmentation issue you read about. Folk want to know exactly where a setting is but as Android fragments it's never a sure bet the menus show up exactly as we see them.

In other words we go looking.

Hi Bob

No, my Tocca is not an Android - much more simpler phone (for a simpler person!).

But, because this problem is intermittent, it appears that you're right, and the menu is fragmenting (on its own)... and that I won't be able to resolve it should the problem becomes permanent, perish the thought! ~~~ yes, Samsung is not user-friendly!
