How to stop sounds when I startup and power off the phone?

Does any one know how I can shut off the annoying Droid voice sound when I turn my phone on. Also, how do I shut off the female voice saying "loss of service" when I power off the device? Thanks.

I don't know about the Droid voice if you mean during bootup.   But the other I believe is Menu>Settings>Sound Settings and uncheck Roaming tone.

I think Menu / Settings / Sounds / Uncheck "SD card notifications."

Did they change this option, i may be wrong but I thought the roaming tone usually make the voice alert that says Verizon Wireless when signal connect and disconnect..

I think I'd read that the roaming thing worked, but I've not had direct experience with it either, Wildman.  Hopefully flyfish will post back and let us know.  

There's also a Network Tone lost - both of those are unchecked on mine.   The Android User's Guide I have doesn't mention either one of them.

Yeah we experianced that with the Droid X when it came out, the manual did not cover a number of little options like that and we had to play the trial and error option..  Smiley Happy

Yes, I was able to uncheck the Roaming Tone option and that stopped the "loss of service" voice. I already had the Network Tone and SD card notification turned off.  But I am guessing there is no way to stop the "Drrrroidddd" sound at startup?

I don't think there's any system setting way to stop the Droid sound. If you can go to /system/media and rename Droid.ogg to Droid.bak I think that will do it, but I think only rooted phones have that option.   It's quite soft on some phones, but louder on others. 

Glad you got rid of the "loss of service" voice though.  At least the bootup sound effects are only when you boot up and not throughout the day.
