Hey everyone. Whenever I'm on the phone making a call and I receive a message, email or chime for a game it makes the noise and vibrates. The problem is that it's basically in my ear and annoys me. How do I turn that feature off so it doesn't bother me while I'm on the phone? Thanks.

Go to notifications in your phone settings and find the application thats doing that, turn off sounds and keep badges and alerts on.

Mine does it when I receive text messages while in a phone call. Can that be turned off? It is quite annoying.

I'm pretty sure the text tone none will work best, ringer off will make the phone vibrate still, if you go into settings like he mentioned and change it to none it won't even vibrate at all.

Yeah, but that's turning it off all the time. We just mean we don't want to hear our text/email/alert tones alarming in our ear while we r talking! It's annoying to have to switch to vibrate during calls and back to ring after.

Looks like that's all the options we got until Apple makes an update or while an iPhone is stock, I'm sure jailbroken has a way around it, they have a way around everything.

I'm afraid there is only two options for text tones and email alerts on or off, mine does it doesn't really bug me.

Maybe you could put it on silent when you get a call but obviously that's annoying having to do that every time

Reviving an old thread ... I was just asked by a family member if there's a way to minimize a reminder alarm's intrusion during a call. Obviously, both parties are hearing this sonic interruption. The alarm(s) are reminders for periodic medication dosing. Obviously, if one remembers in advance its not a problem ... however, we use the alarms for reminders. If we remembered without the reminders ... I think you get my drift ....

This from the stock Reminders app? I have a meds reminder from the Reminders app, but have never had any issue with someone else hearing the alert. I'll test it and report back.

These alerts come from non-native alarm apps. The stock version(s) haven't proved to be sufficiently reliable nor customizable.

The stock Reminders app has been reliable for me in alerting me of when it's meds time. But that's all I use it for. But no, no customization or ability to copy and paste within the app.
