    Since the recent update (Telus) to, my Q10 plays a loud and very much unwanted start up and shut down set of tones. How the heck do I shut these bloody things off! Even putting the volume to zero makes no difference. This is more than annoying when I want to shut off my phone or start it up discretely. And why the hell does anyone want to have a tone played to show it started up or shut down?

    Anyway folks I would be most grateful if anyone can tell me how I can shut this off. cheers

    Just to add to this, if I shut off all notifications except for the ringtones for my phone I can stop this, but then I no longer get the nice 'ding' for text/bbm. No setting for shutoff / startup sound ...

    I know that some carriers add on their own signature, i.e., identification in addition to their silk-screened logo. So it is possible that your carrier added its own startup/shutdown sounds. My Galaxy S4 has the AT&T Death Star logo and startup sound when I turn it on, but nothing on shutdown. Thankfully my Q10 does neither. Maybe you might be able to do a Google search on Telus startup/shutdown sounds.

    Is there some Accessibility setting that is doing this?
