Turn off sounds


iMore Question

So my mom came from an android to an iPhone 5s. She absolutely hates the sounds it makes, I was able to turn most of them off. But I am not sure how to turn off one sound.

How do I turn off the sound when you send a text? It has to be when sounds are on because she wants to be able to hear when she gets a text but when she sends a text she doesn't want there to be a noice.

I hope you guys understood that and are able to help me, Thanx!
