Even when my ringer is disabled, my phone beeps when I miss a call. This is disruptive, particularly when I'm in class. How can I prevent this beep from occurring?

  • What phone are you talking about exactely? Could it be that you get a text message when missing a call?

  • @Thomas: I have a HTC 8X. I'm not getting a text message when missing a call (though that should not make a noise either). My vibrate is on, my ringer is off. The phone vibrates while the person is calling, then beeps after they hang up (without me answering).

I am going to assume that you have a Verizon HTC 8X - this is a known issue and you need to wait for Verizon's update:

"After further review this is a known issue with the HTC 8X. It is under review by HTC and the issue will be addressed with the next software update. Visit http://vz.to/n5snpq for the latest news on software updates and other device offerings"

Also note that there is a settings on HTC 8X:

At the bottom of the ringtones + sounds setting is a an option to disable All other notifications, this should disable the missed calls alert. However for Verizon the settings will have no effect.

I found the solution in Settings -> Accessibility -> Reminder of Messages. When this is on, it will remind every 15 seconds (or max 5 min).
