    I am new to the iPhone gig - the iPhone4 is my first... and I am starting to figure a lot of this out, and doing quite nicely, post-BlackBerry... but one thing really annoys me is that freaking "whoosh" sound that I get every time I send an SMS or MMS... how can I turn that off? I found a setting to turn off the annoying sound when sending an email... and I believe that there has to be a way... I just haven't found it yet...

    Other then JBing not sure. I like it because I can exit out of the SMS App and still know if the message went through, especially when the signal isn't the best.

    I think that sound is awesome, but hey its your phone. I don't think there is a way to turn it off from what i can tell. just keep the phone on silent i guess

    I'm coming from a BlackBerry as well. I love the sounds. I like how when actively in a sms conversation, it makes those light sounds rather than the loud sms tone.

    Count me in as liking them, because as someone else said, I can move on to other thing while it is sending and when I hear the sound I know it is gone. Same for Email! Though you can turn this off from Sending or Getting email, you can't for sending SMS or MMS.

    I think you can turn it off in Settings, Sound, Send Mail sound off.

    Heh. I already got used to the sounds because of frequent iChat use. The one thing I miss though was being able to use a certain SMS tone from a Sony Ericsson K800i I DLed to my BlackBerry.

    currently there is no way to turn off that sound other than silent switch. sorry you dont like the sound. personally I like it as others have stated. after i push send i leave the app and it is nice to know that the message actually sent via that sound

    okay, okay, I get it. You all like it... and I can't stop it... so all that is left for me to do is start marching in step with the Apple army.

    That is for mail. Not the SMS send sound
    ahh, thanks, misread the OP. didn't recall a whoosh for SMS, only for mail.

    Actually you're not the only one who hates this sound. There are millions like you. Don't feel alone.
