And on the call I can hear the sound I have for email and message notifications. I found how to stop this on the incredible but can't find it on the thunderbolt. Weird I can't find this.
Thanks to anyone who knows

What I would like to know....maybe you know SISTER....how do you stop message notifications (Vibrate) when on a phonecall. I have been on the phone with the Ex-wife and I get a notification and then she asks "What was that?"....I personally don't care what she thinks, but it has happened with other people.

I know I could figure it out, but I am lazy...it's Friday and I have a beer waiting for me at home!

That's why I asked. LOL. Only I hear the sound I have set. I have looked and can't find it. Thought this was basically set up same as incredible. I will email HTC. But brother dear they probably know me by first name basis now
Enjoy your beer

I have diff tones for contacts too.
I just got off the phone with Verizon tech support. Nothing in the settings. He suggests we email HTC and bring to their attention and have them resove in a software update. He also suggested using 3rd party sms. No thanks for me on that. Have tried them. Prefer stock.

And no...javelina aren't bothering me. Lol

Oh, I didn't understand the problem. That sound during call doesn't bother me so I didn't notice it.

OK gang
I have an answer and not what we want !
This is not available on the Thunderbolt. Just got off the phone with HTC. Don't we need to all ban together and email asking they include this in a software update. It was on the Incredible. Why not on the bolt do not know.

So......email them. ! I am right now

Not sure about the default email or text apps.... but for example if you use a 3rd party app like Handcent for SMS, in the settings there is an option for "play sound/vibrate" during a call. I believe K9 Mail has the same features (its been a while since I've used K9) but as for the stock Gmail/SMS apps... there is no setting for this that I know of.

The most you could possibly do with Gmail would be to set the notifications to "notify once" instead of notify for every new message. I personally like the notification sound to go off for every single message though.

Say it isn't that simple, I have Handcent and GoSMS (along with the installed message program). I am liking GoSMS cause you can assign notification tones to indivdual users. So, I went in to HANDCENT and flip the vibrate button and hopefully it works...will have to wait to have someone call me.

Edit: I went into the DEFAULT message program and under settings I clicked it to not notify me of messages because I prefer GoSMS.

Yep. Agreed. It's a shame. Even WinMo 5 alowed for a notification sound to be heard by the phone user but not the remote end. How hard is that?

What I do is I configured a profile in Setting Profiles (Market link) to set the Alarm, System, and Notification sounds to their minimal sound levels while on a call (rule condition for any incoming or outgoing call).
There is also a free version of the app that only allows one profile to be active at a time

thanks all. Appreciate the help. It was easy on the Incredible so when I did get a call, the notifications wouldn't sound off ! It is annoying especially if it is an important call.............like for job interviews !

Here to put the thunderbolt on blast! alot of people phone hopping...that's cool but im upgrading until it really a upgrade. The bionic fell cause of the screen. Good phone though, but I need the full package. Sg2 is great but lack development. can't wait til htc come out with the next "wow"phone. Till then my thunderbolt is here to stay. Battery life is great, running up to standard with any dual core....being rooted that is, using synergy rom.
