    The first thing I do after waking (typically 05:00) is to turn on my phone. The second thing I do is to duck whatever solid object my wife throws at me for waking her up...

    Is there anything I can do to mute the "Samsung Sound"? Muting the beeps when I enter my SIM PIN would be an added bonus.

    I believe he is talking about the annoying ATT sound when you power up from off. Your suggestion does not work for this...

    You can just not turn your phone off at night. Silence it instead and don't turn the sounds on until after your out of earshot of your wife.

    If you put you phone ringer on vibrate or silent mode, when you power it up in the AM it should boot up in that same mode and you will not hear the splash/startup screen. It works that way on my Sprint phone.

    Silencing sounds on the S4 is not as easy as it seems.

    For stock Rom and even on custom roms (at least TW roms, which retain Samsung features) using the blocking app and turning off notifications frequently does not apply or "catch" some apps that seem to sound off in spite of the silencing measures.

    When you (or, worse, your better half) hears a sound in the middle of the night after running through the normal muting functions or routines, then it is necessary to identify the offending app, open it up and get into its settings and ensure it has no notification sounds. (It's not enough to go into app management and turn off notifications for that app!!)

    As to the start up sound muting, well the rooting/ changing file name is good; also many custom roms don't have startup sounds; and finally you might try to turn off the volume when you are sitting down and see if that holds for the next restart (but I am not sure that will work...)

    Good luck

    You can use an app called Startup Manager and in the customize check the "Enable silent boot", this puts automaticly your phone to silence when you power it off and back to ringer when power on!

    Thanks (and also Rashawn29) for your suggestions. This will give me the incentive to investigate the various modes, tomorrow.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I no longer trust myself to root the phone. In the past I would have done this.

    I woke up this morning thinking that an app would be an ideal solution, so thank you very much for getting me there in a trice!

    You can easily create shortcuts to silent ur phone using the app Audio Manager Pro... This is what I've done... Modes change with a click of a button

    Makes perfect sense, but I tried it and it doesn't work.

    I'm using the Startup Manager and it seems to be working; however I had some trouble following ricardogaliza's instructions. After some research, I found how to do it. The way to get to "enable silent boot" within Startup Manager is: in the upper right there should be a column of three dots; click on that and then settings. The silent boot option is in there. P.S., it still makes a small sound but much, much quieter!

    I am resurrecting this thread because I have the opposite issue, my poweron file is where it is supposed to be but it does not play at boot. I am not rooted and have only had this phone a couple of weeks. Why might it not play? I don't need to rush out and turn it on but I am wondering...

    In general I find it amazing that Samsung hasn't given the user the options to deal with the nasty noises at start-up and shut down. Each and every stupid phone does the job, as well as cameras.
    Using apps, or rooting the phone. Please... Probably there was NOBODY at Samsung who thought of this?

    Settings> My Device> Sound> Volume > System (turn it all the way down, it will now vibrate only unless you turn all vibrate off)
    I know this is a thread from last year, but it's the one that showed up in the google search for me.

    This worked for me on my Samsung Galaxy 4 (on TMobile not that it matters), without installing an app or rooting my phone. Just set it and rebooted my phone.

    Not sure if I turned off any sounds I would want to hear - are their system sounds other than startup and shutdown that are important?

    WOW!!!! This WORKS PERFECT on Galaxy S4!

    It's a simple device configuration.

    No tricks, no apps, no "pre sleep" actions, no root.

    Thank you !!

    Simply turn down the system sound, or you can install a startup manager to help you.

    No, just turning the System volume all the way down does not work. Neither does mute boot in any Startup manager app I've seen work either,

    The issue is that for most security-conscious people, the drive (and SD card) are encrypted; I have my phone monitored under Google Apps, which enforces this encryption. At least on the Verizon i545, this means that you have two logins when booting (or rebooting) the phone -- the first login is to gain access "to use the encrypted device memory". The Verizon theme plays before this first login. Any noise after the first login can be muted by a Startup manager/setting system volume to 0. Even muting the sound before shutting down the phone does not work.

    Now, without rooting the phone, has anyone succeeded in muting the sound BEFORE the first of two logins?

    Works great on my unrooted Tab 4.
    I did upgrade to the paid version of All-In-One Toolbox.
