    Please tell me there is a way to turn off the sound the phone makes when it is plugged into a charger? I am not rooted and would prefer to stay that way for simplicity sake. This sound is bugging the crap out of me.

    Try System Settings - Accessory and then uncheck make sound when docked and see if that works. Just guessing since I am rooted and don't have that happen.

    There's no way to turn it off if your not rooted.

    You can use a profile manager. Setting Profiles will do this, and probably other similar products:

    What you need to do is create a profile that has all sounds turned off. Call it "Silent" of something like that. Then create a rule with a condition for Battery, plugged into any charger, and an action to activate profile "Silent."

    You will probably also want to create a default profile that has sounds turned on. When you plug the phone into a charger, SP will recognize that event, and start the "Silent" profile. When you unplug it, the phone will revert to the default profile.

    I was never able to turn my wifes sounds off without rooting it. But it's really easy if you do decide to root, and there's a ton of other noises you can cancel out too, like all of the camera!!

    Wouldn't this make all notifications "silent" when the phone is plugged in then?

    What is the easily way to root? I mean as basic and non-time consuming as possible.

    My apologies, I misread your post. I thought you wanted to silence the phone while it was plugged in, not just get rid of the noise it makes at the time you plug it in. My mistake.

    I second Chloe's recommendation. I've rooted several time following that method. It is safe if you follow the directions, but there is always some risk, I suppose. Since you're in the Sprint forum I assume you have a Sprint phone. Don't follow those instructions if you have a different carrier version or the international one.

    I would suggest reading the first post carefully. Then read through the entire thread. You'll see what mistakes others made, and know not to do the same thing. Then go back and reread the first post, downloading all the linked files and setting everything up as instructed. Finally, step through the post again, following it one step at a time as you root.

    Did you turn your system volume all the way down? You can keep the notifications loud so you don't lose that, just a thought.

    Yeah my system sounds are already all the way off but it still makes the sound.

    It made it easy for me. I never rooted a device before the S3. Like meyerweb mentioned, there are risks, as always when rooting, but as long as you follow step by step (and you have a Sprint S3), you should not have a problem.

    If you do encounter a problem, there is usually someone that can help you out.

    Push the volume button on your phone. Then tap the settings button next to the volume bar. Then turn the notifications volume bar down.

    If you hit one of volume buttons and a slider bar pops up, next to it should be a menu button. Hit that and 4 more slider bars drop down. One of them is touch feedback and system. Slide that one all the way down.
