Can I do this simple task without jailbreaking?

    Everytime I send a text the phone makes an annoying sound. The only way to stop it is to put the phone on vibrate. But I don't want that. I want to hear my phone rings but not the annoying noise it makes everytime I text. Is this even possible without jailbreaking? Thanks a lot.

    In Settings > Sounds, do you have "New Text Message" set to "none"?

    Just change Settings>sounds>new text messages to none

    He's talking about that little "whoop"/zip sound when YOU send a message, not you receiving a message.

    That's only for incoming. But if I send a text I still get that noise.

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Only thing you can do is mute it when you send it or JB.

    Since you cannot access anything 'root' without a jailbreak you are stuck with it. I think you'll get used to the noise. Or just put on silent like some have said before.

    A work-around would be covering the speaker with your thumb. You can then barely hear sound that comes out of it, even if it's on max volume.

    But again, it's only a work-around.
