    Default need help with wireless charging sound

    I have had my maxx for a week now. Bought the ghost 100 droid branded wireless charger but exchanged it for the Nokia dt100 at my local store due to the ghost being defective (would get too hot and stop charging ).
    I love wireless charging except for one thing...the wireless charging notification sound it makes every time I lay my phone down.
    I have been through every setting I can think of and still haven't found a way to disable this? My wife is going to kill me if I dont figure this out as I only charge my phone at night and it is constantly making noise every time I move the phone.

    Somebody HELP!!!!

    you could always you know, use the stock charger

    i dont think there is a simple solution, i think you are going to have to sacrifice something. if your phone is on silent does it still chime when placed on the charger, or does it vibrate?

    here are my ideas without exactly knowing the end result, but i imagine your phone is going to have to be on silent.

    #1. put phone on silent. or have a tasker profile setup to go into silent mode at a specific time or when connected to home WiFi after specific time.

    #2. have an NFC sticker by your entryway and tap it as you are walking in the door. setup the NFC sticker to put phone into silent mode. (i dont know if you want your phone on silent, if you dont you can add a tasker profile to leave silent mode once it starts charging)

    #3. put phone in different location OR dont use wireless by the bed, use it at work.

    #4. return wireless charger and get the griffin powerdock for droid ultra/maxx.

    PS- how do you like the dt-900?

    I have the Tylt Vu wireless charger and have my phone sent to silent during my night time sleep. I don't hear the phone at all when charging. Go to Settings/ Active Notifications/ then check Sleep at night and plug in your time period. It's an easy as that.

    My wife is also ready to shoot me! Putting the phone into "sleep mode between this hour and that hour" does NOT WORK! I have the "DROID" wireless charging pad.

    The ONLY way is to put the phone to silent! Not happening! If my phone rings in the middle of the night I NEED to answer it! It's either an emergency or a sales call from someone over seas which I make money on!! All other alerts are set to vibrate only anyways (email, txt, calendar, etc etc...)

    HELP!! GAH!!!

    did you try something like Simple Sound Profile Widget? I set mine up to a new profile I made called "phone only" when I'm ready to sleep. The only sound is when the phone rings. I have all other sound settings to silent. maybe its different with wireless charging, but it works great for me.

    I have an imperfect, but decent solution.

    1. Using Llama, I set up the following:

    When Wi-Fi is connected to my home network AND time is between 9pm and 6am AND battery is in use AND screen is on, Do the following:
    - Change profile to Ringer off (profile I created which just shuts the ringer)
    - Queue event - Ringer back on when: (user is present OR screen is Off) AND above criteria are met
    - Queue event - Ringer back on (delay 15 seconds) AND above criteria are met.

    2. To use: push the power button, but don't unlock the phone. Put on wireless charger before the screen shuts off again.

    Seems to work fine, though I'd prefer to just be able to silence the stupid notification.

    its odd because when my sound is on I get 1 wireless charger beep and that's it! nothing more.. and when I'm on silent I get no beep

    aue123- that's the same thing I get, but the charging sound (even the once) is loud enough to wake my wife. Silencing the ringer is not an option for everyone, and unfortunately, the wireless charging sound is linked to ringer volume rather than notification volume for some strange reason.

    What if you deleted the charging sound or changed it to another sound named wireless charging sound that's quieter or less annoying?

    You need root to delete the sound

    Exactly. It's not like the annoying Droid sound at boot. You can delete or rename any sound once your phone is up.

    That is quite the oversight from Motorola. This is something small, but it is quite annoying. I hope they add an option to the stock settings menu that allows users to change the sound.

    I sometimes get the sound and other times I do not. I wonder why this is?

    One thing I've noticed is that it only makes the sound if the battery is below some threshold charge. I haven't figured out if that threshold is 90% or 95%. Have you NOT heard the sound when the charge level was below that and the ringer wasn't silent?

    I will have to pay more attention as to the level of the battery when I put it on the charger. That probably is why.

    Why do all that? I used Llama to simply turn on a profile with sounds when it detects wireless charging. Before I wirelessly charge, I use the power swtich to turn off the ringer (simple operation, short push of power switch then choose far left, "silence" mode.) Then put the phone on the charger and the phone (Llama) will turn off silent mode and select your normal profile (or whatever profile with sound that you'd like).

    I've noticed that as well.

    The upgrade fee is often prohibitive.
    KWKSLVR and slim6596 like this.

    I use llama and have a profile that sets my phone to silent at night. Since I only put the phone on the charger before going to bed it doesn't make any noise at all.

    So I deleted the wireless charging sound, but now it just plays a different notification when I put it on the charger (the default notification sound from settings). It's a less annoying noise, but anyway to make it silent other than the llama/tasker workaround?

    EDIT: Just replaced the files with a silent sound file of the same name and it works, just an FYI!
