Disable startup sound

Anyone know how to disable / delete the 6600 startup jingle? I've looked through the settings but can't see it...

Only way I know of: Switch to the Silent profile.

However, the startup tune doesn't really bother me that much (even if I don't particularly like it either), because I don't turn off my phone at all (unless absolutely necessary).

It's good to restart your mob at least ones a day to reboot ....

I echo the view of others here....

Why would you want to delete the startup sound ?

Do you sit on the train, or in a restaurant rebooting your phone all day long, or some other weird behaviour ?

Same here. I suspect those user-installed apps which add a "startup" process on reboot is responsible for cutting off the startup jingle.

No, I'd just like to be able to turn it off. I do sit on the train into and out of London, and prefer not to advertise that I have a new & nick-able phone to the shifty buggers that always seem to get on at Staines...

Just set an image as a startup and there'll be no such sound.

I find the tone played at startup bloody annoying. Would want to delete it just for that, which is reason enough tbh.

The startup sound rarely plays properly on my 6600 anyway.
All i get is about 3 notes normally, so is disabled as default

I think that may refer to an Active Desk start up sound? Anyway, I have it diasbled and it still plays the Nokia start up sound.

Also:

> Just set an image as a startup and there'll be no such sound.

I have an image set as startup ("Welcome note or logo" under Settings-->Phone-->General) and the Nokia sound plays on start up.
