Android How To: Enable/Disable System Sounds on your Android Phone or Tablet

February 11, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Having an Android phone, is like having a computer in your pocket. Just about everything you can do on your desktop, you can do on your smartphone, or in this case your Android phone. But manufacturers, as well as Stock Android have put in some system sounds for when you lock your device, touch, and use the keyboard. Now these are particularly annoying on the Samsung Galaxy S3. So here’s how you can disable or enable them.

1. Turn on and unlock your device

2. Go into Settings

3. Tap on Sound

4. Scroll down to the “System” section

5. Uncheck any or all of the following: Dial pad touch tones, touch sounds, screen lock sound, and vibrate on touch

6. That’s it.

That’s just how easy it is to turn off those annoying system sounds on your new Android phone or tablet. And to re-enable them, you just check those boxes instead of unchecking, but I’m sure you could have figured that out.
