Just lower your volume to 0 and everything (except your alarms) will be muted completely. There's only one volume controller in Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8.

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 ...

On Windows Phone 8, if you tap the volume button with the phone unlocked, it will bring down the volume / music shade. On this shade, in the upper right hand corner is an icon you can tap to mute / unmute the volume. NOTE: If it is muted, an alarm will still ring at normal volume. This is so you don't accidently forget it and oversleep.

Electrical impedance The issue here is the impedance difference between your Lumia 525, and the headphones (MDR-AS200). Lumia 525 jack: 8 Ω speculation, see comments MDR-AS200: 16 Ω Your issue is a typical situation where the device that transmit the audio signal over the jack has a lower impedance than the speaker. This usually results in what you ...

You can mute all app sounds, that should also cover the speech recognition sounds. Do the following: Press either of the volume keys Tap the chevron to expand the volume bar Drag the "Media + Apps" slider to zero, or alternatively tap the icon in front of it That should do it.

I've had the same on my 435, it seems to be specific to headphones with mics - 4 part jack. If you're not bothered about the mic, I've found that using either a standard 3.5 mm extension cable or a 3.5 mm jack splitter removes the problem, and you can use whichever headphones you want. Both seem to work fine on mine, and it hasn't broken anything yet! Please ...

You cannot create sound profiles. However, Quiet Hours may do what you want. You can find out more about it here.

I had this issue too, but there is a work-around. You can set a series of alarms for the times you need with the alarm 6 tone (the only one that wakes me up!). Then Cortana can switch those alarms on (eg: say "Turn on my 6.00am alarm").

The volume of audio and video played on your phone depends on the volume of the file itself (see technical details here). For example, you might play a video on YouTube and then a similar video on Vimeo with different maximum volumes. Having said that, it is not impossible that there may be a problem with your phone speaker. Test this out by transferring a ...

If your phone is "awake" (locked or not), press a volume key and then expand the ringer status that appears at the top. From here you can mute with a tap on the icon beside the volume slider and toggle vibration separately with a tap on the vibration status at the bottom.

I am also not able to turn off the 'sound' of speech search. But you can do one thing to avoid accidental launch of 'Speech search'. Go to settings->speech and unchecked 'Allow speech above lock' this will not launch speech search when phone is locked. Also keeping your phone on 'vibrate' mode will stop this sound.

You're right, the notification settings seem rather limited for dual sim phones: You can't set different notification sounds / ringtones for each SIM card. :-( You can (de-)activate notifications for each mail account separately, but you can't choose different sounds. This has nothing to do with SIMs, though. You should be able to set sounds for your other ...

I thing problem is in the construction/type of the earphones. May be Samsung earphones are CTIA type earphones, but Lumia 435 phone have connector of OMTP type. There is a description http://www.ebay.com/gds/Headset-standards-OMTP-or-CTIA-/10000000176335062/g.html and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phone_connector_(audio) (see OMTP - CTIA table) Regretfully ...

I had the same symptoms and found that this setting was preventing the SMS notification sounds (and whatsapp etc): Settings > System > Notification & Actions > Show notifications on the lock screen and play notification sounds. This was turned off in my case. the wording of this option was slightly confusing to me, because when the screen is off i ...

Don't know if this helps, but you can set the default notification sound for the Messaging app. Here is how to do it: Go to settings Go to Notifications & Actions Scroll down until you see an app called Messaging and tap on it Choose notification sound (notice that this is set to "Default") Choose the sound you want for the messaging app

Yep just change it in each alarm, once. so if you save wake me up at 2PM, and a PM alarm is already there and set to Nostalgia.. then it will be fine. But its a deficiency, someone please add it to wishlist for windows 10. https://windows.uservoice.com/ they should always allow default setting on the same page, or use the last set as default.. ...

As it is not possible to access the Windows Phone OS notification sounds the "Nokia message" sound can not be replaced. This is not possible through the Windows Phone SDK / Visual Studio as these tools don't give you any special access to the Phone OS files. There's also no API that I'm aware of that you could use to programmatically change the sound, sorry.

Unfortunately neither the dev nor the user can change the maximum duration of a notification sound at the moment. You should consider adding a feature request on http://windowsphone.uservoice.com

First, try a soft reset. If that doesn't help, you should contact Nokia Care.
