    Thanks but I rather leave mine on part of the reason I own a smartphone is to notify me of things. I don't want to get info second hand

    The first time this feature went off I was at the airport, in line waiting to go through the TSA. All of the sudden, in unison, every single person that had an iPhone had this frightening tone go off, including mine. You would have to have been deaf not to hear these phones go off in the terminal.
