I just realized today that I have not taken my cell phone off of vibrate mode for six months.
I always keep my phone on vibrate mode, because I really, really hate the phone company's jingle that plays whenever you turn the phone on and off. The only way to avoid hearing the jingle is by having your phone on vibrate, or by ripping out the battery while the phone is still on.
With my computer, it's the same way. I mute the speakers before turning off the computer, because I hate hearing the annoying "you just turned off your computer" beeps. On my old computer, I could turn off those sounds. I still haven't figured out how to do that on my new computer.
Why can't I choose the "turn on" and "turn off" music? Forget ringtones! I just want to get rid of "beep beep beep beep" every time I use my phone. That's all.
True, I miss a lot of phone calls because my phone doesn't ring, but I'm still not switching out of vibrate mode until I can get around the annoying jingle music.
