but why?

Yokohamajojo Wed 10-Jun-15 14:34:46

Cause they haven't a clue on how to change it and think it's standard (yes looking at you FIL grin

My mum has it. I turn it off when she's not looking but she always manages to turn it back on despite denying knowing how to use the damn thing!

JennyOnTheBlocks Wed 10-Jun-15 14:36:38

because perhaps they don't trust the touch screen and need that little confirmation that their type has been registered?

not me, that's the first thing i turned off on my new phone. drives me fucking scatty grin

blush I do. Because when it is plugged into the car radio and I'm sat in the car I can tap out beats because the interference means a thud emits from the speakers.

If I hear that noise when I'm on the train I just know if I look around to see who's responsible it'll be someone over sixty, probably using an old Nokia rather than a smartphone. I always want to go over and tell them that you can turn that noise off.

IABU because I have it on on mine. I turn it off though if typing in public.

I justice to hear the noise as I type really fast and the noise confirms the key press without me looking at the screen.

I keep it. Means I know what I'm typing. Silent feels wrong.

And I'm nowhere near 60!

I do turn it right down when in company though.

Oh. And because then I can tell when my children are messing around on my phone...

VacantExpression Wed 10-Jun-15 14:44:54

silent just feels wrong though? I need to know the key has been pressed- especially as I usually text without looking at my phone too busy being nosey

Pinot4me Wed 10-Jun-15 14:46:11

YANBU! Drives me crazy too!

cjt110 Wed 10-Jun-15 14:48:58

Mine phone is always on silent all the time.

A woman on the train recently was having a long conversation via text so her phone would loudly beep to signal a new message and then she'd beep-beep-beep while typing her reply, then the text tone would deafen us all again, then more beep-beep-beeps... I was ready to bodily remove her from the train after five minutes!

mousmous Wed 10-Jun-15 15:07:55

ah, detecting dc messing about with phone.
that's a good reason

mousmous Wed 10-Jun-15 15:09:17

and what about this annoying 'cheerful whistle' ringtone?

Zola1980 Wed 10-Jun-15 15:46:18

aaagghhhh drives me insane - any type of keypad noise - and the whistle one you mentioned! there's no need to have tones on whilst on a train etc - just have it on vibrate and you can feel it if anyone rings/texts rather than subject the whole carriage to it!!

Tick tick users should be summarily grabbed by the ankles and dragged along a rocky beach -one foot for every tick...

Boldclams Wed 10-Jun-15 23:16:40

Argh yes I feel your pain with the cheerful whistle tone. One of the most aggravating sounds in existence.

KellyElly Thu 11-Jun-15 13:13:48

Because I like it grin

I have it. I didn't know you could turn it off.

I didn't know it annoyed people. I think I'll keep it.
