Friday's Stupid Thread - Beep Settings On Devices

Fri Apr 28, 2006 2:10 pm

So today let's discuss how loud you like your cellphone/camerhaa/music player/etc... to beep (or not) when navigating through menus/functions.

I put the beep on the lowest setting but preferred the clicking sound heard on older Ericssons. You ?

I turn all those beeps off. They are annoying. Especially the cell phone ones. I can understand on a phone, maybe it's for a blind person. But on a camera, excuse me, camerhaa? I doubt blind people are going into photography anytime soon...

I turn all the beeps off too - probably because I hear the dam things all day at work - one can only have so many beeps !!  Wink

Once I was asked to switch my camera off while on board of aircraft because it was beeping, since that time camera sound is always off, as to other things, let it beep!

Always off, I even get mad when I dial a land line and hear the beeping and dial tone.

Everything off, I hate those sounds. And as Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan already sang,

break the silence"  Wink .

Keypad beeps are off on my phone. I wish I could turn off the beep on my camera as well...

Euuuuuuuuuuhh ? Most of the time you can, it should be in the menus/setup somewhere. What camerhaa do you own ?

The worst is in cars. Bonging when you put the key in, to tell you you just put the key in. Bonging when you take the key out. Bonging when you open the door. etc etc.

I always turn them off. That way I can keep sending text messages without having my mom ask "You playing with that  censored  cellphone again?"
Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

I hate the beep on my watch. My cellphone doesn't have a beep; or I haven't figured out how to turn it on.
