Two annoying thing with vario - need your help

I've spent ages trying to find a way to fix this (via google and here) and am almost of the edge of giving up! So I am calling out to all Modaco geeks. :)

* Everytime I sent a text message to someone, I get the notification saying that it has been sent. I want to turn it off but I can't find it in Sounds/Notifications. How?

* When I slide the keyboard out and pressing the blue dot to access the special character. But when, for example, I want to press ! (s), it came out as @. So I had to press ~(a) key and it will come out as !. It's as of the keys are one letter further. I checked the keyboard settings and it's set to English (UK) - what is causing this problem?

Thanks. :)

Hum... annoying.

I have to confess I did play about with the registry to get the phone to work right for me. Guess I need to do a hard reset and see if it does the trick. Then find out which reg hacks I did that caused this.

Or anyone else has any ideas.

Thanks,

I don't recall the registry key that you have to change to disable the message sent notification, but I've attached a CAB file that will do it for you.

As for the keyboard issue I don't know - mine works fine. Is it possible that you have unusual Region settings perhaps?

(Apparently you can't add attachments on the Modaco Mobile pages. I'll post it from my PC later)

Don't need to do reg tweak to remove delivery notifications.

Goto messages\tools\options tap on text message account and there is a box that can be ticked on not :)

* Request delivery notifications (unticked)

* Use Unicode when nesserary (ticked)

Might have missed the point here but...

The "o" buton on the keyboard is used thus:

Single press > key = single special character

Double press = toggle "special character lock" on/off

NOTE: the caps lock functions in the same way as this

There is a simple reg hack you can enable to show the status of the key locks, may be worth you looking into it if problems persist...

If this isn't the thing, and the problem may be with the actual keyboard itself. when you press "a" with the locks off, do you actually get an "a"? If you do, then you should get a "!" with the special lock on...

I find the best way is to hold it down like you would with a ctrl of shift key on a PC, then you dont end of getting it in the wrong mode [as much!]

Try this one ;)

Go to, Start/Settings/Sounds and Notifications then select Notifications tab.

In the drop down box select the "New Text Message" option and then you can then

uncheck the Display message on screen option.

EDIT I should really learn to read posts correctly or try to wake up a bit more when doing a night shift :)

I'll look into this more when I have time and report back :)

Unless I misunderstood it's not a message delivery notification, it's a message sent notification

I've attached two tweaks - one turns off the msg sent, and the other turns on the onscreen keyboard mode indicator

Hard reset fixed the keyboard problem, must be somehting I did!

For the msg sent notification, it's this:

Disable Message Sent Notification

Registry: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings

Key: SMSNoSentMsg (dWord)

Value: 0 = disabled

1 = enabled

or the CAB file from chucky.egg - thanks!

i got the CAB file and clicked it on my phone and it said "sucessfuly installed" but the sms send noise will still not go away. is there a specific thing i'm ment to do with it? also if this fails how do i do it manually with all the registys and keys and values as metioned above.

thanx for any help

The CAB file turns off the pop-up text notification that a message has been sent. It doesn't do anything to the sounds.

In fact, mine doesn't make any sound when I send an SMS, and I've never seen anywhere to change that.

Un-check the first box on the "Sounds and Notifications" screen, I can't remember what it's called. That one does the basic Windows sounds, so unticking it might stop the noise.

I am now having this issue... this started to happened when I did a hard reset my phone and reinstalled the software.

And this time, I don't fancy doing the hard reset again because I've installed lots of softwar eback on. :/

Hopefully someone here will know how to fix this? I've looked in registry but couldn't find anything useful to fix this.
