    Subscribed. Need to do this too. Have all the sounds turned off and this is the only one I haven't found a way to disable.

    Interesting! iOS 10 allows that now?

    The option to customize certain system sounds likely existed on the original iPhone OS. It was certainly there on my iPhone 4S back in 2012.

    This is not a new feature.

    No, it certainly is not. But the subject of this particular thread is the swoosh sound of a sent message.

    I can find no setting under iOS 9.0.2 where I can turn this specific sound off. If it's not there in iOS 9 then why would it be present in any iOS version before iOS 9?

    Why do I have to resort to jailbreaking and renaming the Sent Message.caf file to turn it off?

    Again, we are speaking of the sent message swoosh sound specifically. Not the ability to turn sounds on or off in general.

    Thanks! However, I'm asking about the swoosh wound in
    the default Messaging(texting) app. When I sent a text,
    it makes swhoosh sound. (different than the send mail sound)

    :(

    OK. If I have misunderstood @willmtaylor then and he was referring only to the sent mail sound then, yeah. Your only option is to jailbreak and rename the file (as you can see I have done above). That or leave the mute switch on. :(

    it's possible to jailbreak iPhone 7? I'm a newbie to iPhones. Doesn't Apple have their police force and arrest people who jailbreak iPhones? Or was that just a rumor?

    I'm not sure where you are located, but if you live in the United States, the Librarian of Congress declared an exemption of the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) for iPhones and iPads a long time ago.

    It is NOT illegal to jailbreak and as of a year and a half ago it will not longer invalidate your warranty either.

    But Apple does not LIKE jailbreaking because it means you are no longer controlled by their services. So they make no attempt to clarify or correct any misinformation about jailbreaking that may be out there.

    The other thing is you need to be on a version of firmware that is jailbreakable. Right now, 10.1.x is jailbreakable. Not sure which exact firmware. But it's not stable yet and considered to be a developer's jailbreak.

    If you're on anything less than 10 then the last available jailbreak for iOS 9 is for 9.3.3.

    Turn off "text tone." AFAIK, it turns off the tone for both sending and receiving texts.

    My Verizon iPhone 7 shows version 10.2(14C92). Guess that's not jailbreakable. :(

    It may be at some point very soon. There's chatter about it right now. I wouldn't update any further though if you want to do this and can help it.

    You are referencing the in app conversation sounds, not to be confused with notification sounds which you can turn off or modify. Receiving a message while in the message app makes the opposite sound and also can't be turned off or modified.

    Without jailbreaking you'll need to reduce the volume like in any other app or set the phone to silent.

    Probably annoying for you but there is no easy solution (again without jailbreaking).

    Maybe if you explain the situation where you want the volume on the phone loud but the in app messaging tone to be quieter we could help you out a bit more?
