    What sound is this?

    Hey all,

    While in PIE, if you type in test in a search box, and hit the center button on the Q, many times PIE will automatically start the search for you (without having to move the cursor over to the web pages "search" button.

    However, a loud, ANNOYING error sounding beep always plays when I do this. I hear this same sound in other places on the Q, like when I try to backspace in a data field, but there's nowhere else to backspace to, etc... (to show you exactly what I mean, create a new SMS, and in the blank "to" field, try and hit backspace... it's THAT obnoxious sound that I am talking about)

    What sound is this? And why does it seem to be at the same volume no matter what volume setting I have in the profile (except for silent, luckilly).

    I would like to edit this .wav to a quieter version...
    .

    Thanks,

    Matt!

    thanks...i should have checked it first. even at level 1, it's WAY to loud. i'll find the .wav and modify it to be quieter and overwrite...

    thanks again,

    Matt!

    I could turn it off -- but I would like to have some kind of system alerts present.... just not the obnoxious one..

    Thanks,

    Matt!

    Sweet. I think I might overwrite it with homer simpson's "doh!" sound. If it's gonna be loud I'd rather it be that sound, lolz.

    Hey...

    I simply used Audacity to reduce the volume, then overwrote it using the same file name... That's the safest, I think...
