Why can't you turn off the "swoop" sound when sending a text?

    I have just discovered that I cannot turn off the "swoop" sound when sending a text message without disabling sound for the entire phone by switching it to silent. Just another obnoxious flaw in an otherwise great device, how could they have overlooked this? I don't get it, I am getting very frustrated with Apple, they have some serious holes in their designs.

    If you don't like it there's the door.

    It's a cool sound. I don't know how something so little could have you frustrated.

    you can change the tone
    voice memo silence and make into a tone and use for e-mails etc.

    Are you kidding me? I'm sick of Apple fanboys blindly defending everything about it. I happen to love the iPhone, however I am also able to look at objectively and see that it's nowhere near perfect. It is incredibly frustrating when you have a well designed device with such stupid flaws in its design. I don't care if it's a cool sound, you should have the option to turn it off without having to turn off sound for the entire phone, and I'm not alone either I did searches and found a ton of complaints about it.

    What's with the attitude, Mac? Knock it off. Is this what happens when I step away for a little while?

    I actually really like that sound. Sometimes I only sent messages to hear it LOL. Same with sending emails: its like shooting torpedoes. Ha ha

    I don't think we can change the sent/outgoing text sound.

    I don't know. All of this negativity towards the iPhone and all of these debates and bashing over little things (not just talking about this thread) I guess and I'm just tired of it. Sorry for lashing out on you, TH55.

    You can't let other peoples opinions get to you. As long as you're happy with it, that's all that should matter.

    That's just for incoming text tone. Not outgoing/sent text sound.
