E5-Turn off tone when turning on phone?

I have an E5 and wish to have the intro tone turned off. How can I do this?

The start up tone cannot be individually disabled but try one of these workarounds to see if it stops it:

1) Press any key or the red end call key as soon as the animation starts.

2) Place the phone is silent mode before you switch it off, select general mode after it's booted up.

3) In your current profile disable the warning tones, this can also disable other sounds and sound in certain games.

4) Use offline mode instead of switching the phone off.

I always use my phone in silent profile and no sound is played when turning on the phone.

I really wanted to turn off the tone at startup but not have to keep switching between modes. Never mind I'll just leave it on.

I empathise - drove me completely nuts as well, and I cursed myself for being loyal to the brand and noy buying a BlackBerry. Moreover, the pathetically inadequate User's Guide is no help at all!

 

Here goes:

 

Press the Home key, which will take you to the Main menu

 

Choose Ctr Panel (it's red)

 

Choose Settings

 

Choose General

 

Choose Personalisation

 

Scroll down to Tones (should be the 3rd one there)

 

Scroll down to Warning Tones (should be the 12th one there)

 

Change On to Off

 

Back, Back, Back etc.....

 

Turn off

 

wait a couple of secs...

 

Turn on

 

Hopefully, that wretched tune will have been silenced!

This action works thank you very much the start up sound was driving me and the wife up the wall.
Thank goodness for this forum because the user guide for the Nokia E5 is inadequate and not user friendly.
