    Anyone know of way to disable the wireless charging sound without rooting or silencing all notifications? This is pretty annoying not being able to turn it off. The first notification when I place the phone on the charger I'm fine with. It's the ones throughout the night that wake me. I've read when it's up to charge and trickling back down, or getting hot and pausing charges is why this happens. The only solution I found is rooting, which I rather not do until Knox isn't tripped.

    I have Battery Doctor app installed and I don't hear those sounds on either my old Galaxy S which is still in use as a backup Alarm Clock w/no service; nor my S5. Battery Doctor gives you an option to hear sounds or turn them off.

    check it out, no rooting required and Verizon won't let me anyway.

    * Battery Doctor (Battery Saver) - Android Apps on Google Play

    make sure you study all of the Mode menus and program the Whitelists for each.

    Might also consider the Sound Profile app to turn notificatiins off during certain hours.

    I'm having the beep problem with my Galaxy S5.

    Which settings on Battery Doctor did you tweak to turn off the beeping?

    I've been unable to turn if off with Sound Profile.

    Thanks!

    Same here. I can't figure it out. There are 2 sounds when wireless charging. One is very quiet and one is very loud. It seems that the quiet one comes on when you remove the phone and put it back immediately. The loud sound is annoying and I can't figure out how to disable it except for disabling all sound which I can't do since I am on call 24/7 and need to hear my phone.

    Any ideas on how to get wireless charging sounds to go away?

    I saw another post on this forum that include a snip from Samsung support saying that the loud tone could not be muted.

    I'm ready to root!

    Oh yes there is a root method for the ATT. I am on ATT and have rooted my phone successfully yesterday without a problem. And the link is provided by AZ.

    After rooted you may want to install root checker and see if you successfully rooted. You may also want to visit the xda forums as well.

    Step by step:
    1. Root your phone
    2. Download root browser
    3. Find the wireless charging sound: system>media>audio>ui>WirelessChargingStarted.ogg

    6. Rename the copied sound file to WirelessChargingStarted.ogg

    Friends:

    The beep is back!

    Tonight I made a very small mp3 file with no sound and converted it to an OGG file, and moved it to my phone with Airdroid, and put it in the proper place.

    I checked permissions, rebooted and I'm still hearing the beep.

    I moved the renamed OldWire* file to another directory.

    Aargh.

    I am new to all of this stuff. Where did you download the ATT root and other downloads that are needed (checker and others).
    Crossing fingers I do not ruin my phone.

    To root you need the "towelroot apk"... Super simple.. less than 3 minutes start to finish.. Oh yeah, it will not work with Firefox browser (at least for me)

    Help. Clueless about all this. I got S5 rooted, have Root Explorer browser, found the WirelessChargingStarted.ogg only by searching. Have a new sound ready but can not find the folder to replace it in except by searching and it will not allow adding files. Is there a better way or should I be using another browser instead. Totally confused.

    I had Llama app on my phone so I set it up to set my phone to silent when wirelessly charging and the battery is above 98%. Then it will switch back to normal sound volumes when on battery power and the battery is below 98%. This basically silences the phone in the range where it will start cycling the wireless charging on & off. So far so good, although I would prefer not to have my ringtone on silent at night in case of an emergency.

    Has anyone tried Blocking mode? Go to settings>[under personal] Blocking Mode. Turn on Blocking mode and uncheck everything except notifications. Then set the time frame for when you are sleeping or whatever times you want to be left alone. That should shut down the sound and the screen, but only when you want.

    Since we can't root the s5 to get to that darned wireless charging OGG file..... I made an easel for my phone with a round QI charger in exactly the right spot and a magnet screwed to the top right corner of the stand. I programmed tasker to silence system sounds and notification sounds between 10pm and 5am AND in presence of a strong magnetic field. Works great!

    My easel is here and works with the lifeproof case.
    You can find in in the 3dwarehouse for sketchup. Search for "Charging Stand for Samsung S5 with lifeproof case"
