    I have had my Verizon based 822 for about 3 weeks and I like it. But I have what could become a major problem. I need to be able to silence the missed call tone? I am a lawyer, I use my phone in the courtroom to input new court dates, check emails while waiting for a case to be called and other productive tasks while sitting in the courtroom. In some courtrooms I risk an *** chewing from the judge if my phone makes noise, in others I risk having my phone taken if it makes noise. I have read the post which suggests using the clipped off plug from a set of head phones, but that is not attractive and it hangs on my sport coat pocket. Right now I have been switching to airplane mode, but that cuts me off from any productivity while I am waiting in the courtroom. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? I am new to this phone, but now that I have it synching with my Outlook and my case management software I hate to give it up, but this could become a deal breaker for me.
    Thanks for any help.

    Go to settings/ringtones and sound scroll down to the bottom and you should see "Play a sound for" uncheck "all other notifications". I don't have an 822 but I'm sure this is a standard WP8 feature.

    Why don't you switch to vibrate when you are at work. Hit volume up or down, touch the bell. You are good to go. When leaving work reverse process.

    Thanks for the suggestion, unfortunately the phone still emits a tone for the missed call even when I have unchecked all other notifications, and every other sound notification and turned the volume to zero.

    The workaround that I have seen is to plug in a pair of headphones (or the cut off stereo jack of a broken pair)

    Is there any other solution? My wife is complaining of the missed call beeping tone too. I can't see any way to get rid of it.

    go to settings then ringtones, turn off vibrate and then whenever you want to silence it, just press the volume and it will say "ring" on the right just tap that and it will turn to "silent" and whenever you get a message it will just turn on the screen

    I'm not talking about the ring, or the sound of the vibrating. If a call is missed and the call goes to voicemail, or the person hangs up, the phone makes three audible beeps.

    I just tested this - turn the volume all the way down. I then called myself from my desk phone and didn't answer. Vibrate worked, but no tones emitted.

    Yes, I agree that there should be a better option.

    Weird... Because of your post I tried it again, but this time did not turn down the volume. It did not make the 3 tone sound....... One thing - I forgot I was reading the 822 forum, and my current phone is the 928. So apparently they've fixed this in the 928 (my last phone was 822). I wonder if you'll get this fix in the next update. Here are my settings, though...

    Must be an 822 thing. It is really annoying. Shouldn't silent be silent? haha I did try to plug headphones into it and you couldn't hear the tones then.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think it is an 822 thing. But the 928 is ahead of the 822 on updates, as the most recent shipped on the 928, but I don't think has come to 822 yet.

    My 928 version info:
    OS: 8.0.10211.204
    Firmware revision: 1532.5957.1318.3021

    Yeah, that is a higher firmware than the 822 (1532.5951.1250.1012)

    I've seen this issue many times but I personally have never had it give me beeps after missing a call. I have all the boxes unchecked after the "New email" option.

    It's an outstanding issue with the 822 and VZW has yet release a fix for it since the phone was released
