If this has been brought up already I apologize but I couldn't find that it had. I can not get the low battery beep to stop, I've disabled all warnings, alerts, and notifications. The phone is also on vibrate, anyone have any thoughts?

For this solution, I'm going to assume you're using Vista. (If you're on XP, then the only major difference is that you use ActiveSync instead of Mobile Device Center). This isn't the only solution, but is pretty "idiot-proof" so it should be fairly straight-forward and easy to follow


1) Get yourself a file explorer for your phone that is able to overwrite rom files. The one that comes with the phone DOES NOT do this. This is a necessary step. I recommend Resco Explorer. It comes with a free trial. You can get it here
2) Plug your phone into your computer and open up Windows Mobile Device Center (this does not come with Vista and so you may need to do some basic googling to find it if you don't already have it)
3) Once Mobile Device Center detects your phone, click "Connect without setting up your device"
4) Mouse over "File Managment" and then click "Browse the contents of your device"
5) A new file explorer window will open showing the 2-3 storage devices on your phone
6) Make sure you can see hidden files by clicking the Organize Button -> Folder and Search Options -> View Tab -> Click the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" button. Click Apply
7) Open the \Windows folder in the main device storage (NOT My Storage). Be patient. It can take a minute or so to populate
8) If not already sorted, sort the contents of the folder by clicking the "type" sort button
9) Scroll down to the "Wave Sound" files that are now grouped together
10) Find the sounds you want to kill by double-clicking them and listening to them on your computer. (To fully disable the low battery beep and full charge notifcations, you'll need to disable 3 .wav files: Alarm2, phonelowbatt, and Notify - but you can use this method to kill any sounds you don't want)
11) Download the "blank.wav" file attached to this post
12) Rename this blank file to the EXACT same name as the file you want to replace. Same spelling. Same punctuation.
13) Drag and drop this newly renamed file into the file explorer window into a location OTHER THAN THE WINDOWS FOLDER (hint: it won't let you put it there). I usually just dump them in the "My Storage" outside any folders
14) Repeat steps 12 and 13 for every .wav file you wish to replace. Make backup copies of the wav files you plan on replacing. You can disconnect you phone from the computer now as you are finished with Mobile Device Center
15) Open Resco Explorer on your phone and navaigate to where you dumped the renamed blank files
16) Click/Tap and hold on top of the renamed blank file until the menu comes up with the option to "cut" and then cut it
17) Navigate back to the Windows folder in the root directory (again, NOT the Windows folder in "My Storage")
18) Don't actually go into the Windows folder. Instead, click/tap and hold on top of the Windows folder until the menu comes up with the option to "paste" and then paste it
19) If all was done properly, you should get a warning asking if you want to overwrite the file in question. Say yes.
20) Repeat steps 15-19 for each file you wish to overwrite. Once finished, all annoying sound files will have been replaced by blank sounds, thereby silencing them

A little lengthy of an explanation, I know. But I'm not sure how much you know about any of this so I figured better safe than sorry :D Good Luck!

detailed indeed... thanks

but has any one else tried this (registry hack - see below) AFTER updating to cooked ROM?
I did (before flashing) and worked on original samsung rom, but now (after flash) does not.
any other alternative?

"... have had my phone on and off of the charger, and it is well below 20 percent now, and i have not had a low battery beep since the registry edit:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER > ControlPanel > Notifications > {A877D663-293C-47a7-9304-0D347F580408}

Set duration to 0 (default should be set to 8)...."

thanks

I use that method of overwriting annoying sounds with a blank wav file to silence the camera noises and the start up and shut down noises.

i am testing a fix i found googling that as of now seems to have fixed this persistently annoying little reminder. my phone has been beeping a good while and after using TotalCommander to edit a registry key all seems to be well, that is as long as nothing reverts back like i've seen happen with some system registry hacks in the past. the key is in HKEY_CURRENT_USER > ControlPanel > SoundCategories > BattLowAlert and there is a key called InitVol with a default value of 2. change it to 0, and voila! many less steps than replacing all those system sound files. i exported the key and if you'd rather just download a file instead of playing with your registry, go ahead and put the NoLowBatRepBeep(defa 2).reg attached here on your phone, and run it from ON THE PHONE.

hope it helps, cheers :rolleyes:
