Okay gang,

After applying for, and receiving my Apple Store credit for being one of
the early adopters of the iPhone; it's a coincidence that no matter what
I click on, off, on, off within the settings menu... I no longer hear
the Keyboard Clicks while typing.

What am I missing?

I have shut the device completely off, and have restarted it.

Have not done a "restore" yet... thinking I'm just missing
something really stupid.

Any hints to pass along to this (among the first 500) iPhone owner?

Did you try turning them back on in the sounds menu down at the bottom? Maybe they got switched off some how. I know when i show my friends my iPhone they sometimes by mistake change setting trying to get back to the home screen.

Yes! Saturday Night... Full Speed Ahead.

Thanks for your curiosity... I guess it's to be continued.

Maybe I'll just have to "restore" and see/hear what happens.

I don't want to do the restore action until I've exhausted
any/and/all options.

Enjoying a Saturday night,

John

Are you sure you're not in vibe-only mode?

So interestingly "Strange".

Have Two Vibrate features shown in the Sounds Settings.

At the very top of the list; Silent is labeled with Vibrate...
and the on/off setting.

Below that, is the Ring.
It also has a term labeled "Vibrate" which seems redundant.

I should take a picture of it to help illustrate.
(And maybe I will.)

At any rate, after setting these "settings" in every conceivable
setting... still no Click Sound.

So still saying, "hhhhm?"

John:

The two setting are similar, but different.

The top 'Vibrate' under "Silent" is the setting that determines whether your phone vibrates while the Ringer switch is set to Silent.

The bottom 'Vibrate' under "Ring" is the setting that determines whether your phone vibrates with the ringer, and new VM, new Text, new Mail, etc.

For instance, I just got a new mail, and I got a "ding" audio confirmation, and a short vibe.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not, but I have known ppl to wonder why they're not getting certain sounds, only to realize their phone is totally 'soundless' when in vibrate-only mode.;)

Thanks for the added info Stuart, and the photo to help illustrate.

And yes Honda Maker, I'm one of those sarcastic individuals that
are best taken in real time, and not on some "street" forum.
The written word has always lacked "tone", and in my case, "tack".

(As I'm pulling down my eyelid), I apologize for being taken
in a sarcastic manor.

My Keyboard Sound has indeed been silenced, and had it not
happened to my piece of equipment personally, I wouldn't believe it.

So, I guess I'll end up doing a "restore" to attempt to return the
device to it's original state.

Thanks again for all of your replies,

John

Sorry about your problem.

Wonder what "guninmouth" sounds like? lol

iPhone 69, You're a genius!

I'm the one saying, "DUMB! DUH? Now.

~laughing at my stupidness~~~~

It's the switch on the side of the iPhone above the volume control.

I never use that switch. Ever!

My only reason for it being switched off, is it must have been
moved while taking the iPhone in, and out of my pocket recently.

Man, I'm glad I had some help from here.

Thanks again.

Technically this controls what to do when the Ring/Silent switch is in the "Silent" position or the "Ring" position. Just like it says. Not sure why this confused the OP so much.

HondaMaker mentioned this early on--only to get blown off with an arrogant reply. Way to go, "erroneous."

Wellllllll....

I looked up the nomenclature of the iPhone controls directly
from the Apple iPhone manual.

And on page 10, it labels the switch on the side of the device
(just above the Volume buttons) as a "Ring/Silent switch".

After carefuly scrolling back through this entire thread,
the post that used the term "ring" was the post that proved
most helpful because it was describing as close as possible the
switch that needed to be "switched".

The term "vibrate" didn't seemed to get me pointed in the
right direction.

And yes, I meant "Tact", not tack... for that's mis-spelled
where I used that word.

Thanks for pointing that out Honda Maker.

Well, again...

I've said "thanks".

Is there a particular reason you feel moved to ask another question
like "What the ****?"

Not sure I know what you mean now.

Does it pertain to the iPhone?

Is **** available to look up?

This thread has been exhausted, and won't benefit or
contribute much more to the forum.

Have fun tomorrow in the plant Honda Maker.
It's an amazing place to be employed.
