Remove text sent sound.

Hi all,
I am new to the iPhone 4s, but not new to iOS.
I was just wondering if there is a way to get rid of the text message sent sound? It gets really annoying after awhile.
I went into settings->sounds and there is no "Text message sent" tone to change.

thanks.

Nope. It can't be turned off.

Unfortunately, there is no setting for the number keypad tone for the phone app, and no specific option that allows you to just have vibrate as your ringer. Others have said to just turn the mute switch, but I like some things making sound, such as when an email is sent.

They really need to come out with more simple options like that.

Have you tried making an empty audio file (that is, something like a second or half a second of silence), saving it as an MP4 ringtone, putting it in your iTunes, and selecting it as your Sent Mail sound?

Or else jailbreak and use a sound management package....

I wish it were that easy. there is no option to even assign the sound that is used. If that were the case i would have assigned a silent ringtone to it.

Won't be jailbreaking my phone, I want to keep my warranty intact. Thanks for your help though!

Sent Text isn't a sound you can change. It's not the same as the Sent Mail swoosh, it's more like a short slide whistle sound.

Ahhh, sorry. Probably can be changed with a sound manager via jailbreaking, but that's probably the major option.

I like it actually. I can turn the screen off and still know my message was sent.

Idk about the OP, but I send over a hundred texts a day... That would absolutely destroy the switch.

And no, that is no where near a solution.

I did also when I had the original droid. When my phone is on silent I always wait and make sure the message sent before turning off the screen. Ive noticed my messages have be failing or are really slow to send recently.

Stupidest thing to forget apple. I send about 3-400 messages a day. So I have text tones turned off. However I can't let my phone ring for phone calls because I have to keep the mute switch on all the time so I don't have to hear the sent tone over and over all day.
