    He specifically said "messages", not mail. That only disables notifications sound from mail or if you select "none" for messages it turns off sounds from INCOMING messages.
    In reality, for some reason Apple decided that users can never disable the "whoosh" sound from sent sms, or even change the sound. It's permanent.. Unless of course your device is jailbroken and you know how to change that sound..

    That sound has never bothered me. I never think about it. It is odd they didn't make it optional. You can provide feedback on it here:

    Note: If it annoys you that much, just turn your sound volume down while texting. There's not much else you can do.

    What has helped me is that I go to settings and sounds and I put everything on vibrate only and I don't have to hear the sound just vibration I hope this helps
