Reminder Notification

I've noticed that a reminder notification tone will go off every now and again if I haven't checked the new messages waiting.  Is there a way to stop this from happening other than silence the notification tone all together?  I charge my phone in my bedroom and sometimes I hear the tone through the night.  I don't want to have to turn my phone off.

 

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks!

If your not looking for important notifications or phone calls at night, then I would turn the sounds off when you go to bed. this can be accomplaished 2 different ways.

 

1 - go into settings then sounds and display. The top item is Silent mode and tapping that once will light up the checkmark and all sounds except alarms and media are silenced.

 

2 - from the locked screen, the slider on the right says sounds on/off. Slide it to the left to turn off sounds, and in the morning, slide it to the left again to turn the sounds on.

 

Hope this helps. I use the settings silent mode when I am in meetings at work and have the vibrate on. I have not played with the slider on the lock screen to see what that silences and what it doesnt.

If I turn it to silence then it silences the notification for a call.  I don't want to do that. 

 

I thought maybe there was a setting somewhere to turn off the reminder notification all together.  If someone can help me locate it, that would be helpful.  I don't want to have to turn off the sound or specific notifications at night and then have to remember to turn it back on in the morning. 

 

Thanks

I came in looking for the same thing (I think).  I get an e-mail and the e-mail notification sound chimes.  Unless I check the e-mail in the phone, the same notification occurs every 10-15 minutes.  I just want it to happen once initially and stop at that.

If your not looking for important notifications then I would turn the sounds off when not needed. This can be accomplished easily. Go into settings then sounds and display. The top item is Silent mode and tapping that once will light up the checkmark and all sounds except alarms and media are silenced. Unless you change your notification settings it will continue. Hope this helps.

I dont know if your using the standard messaging app but i use handcent app and if i needed to i could go into the settings of the handcent app and turnoff notifications. turning the volume off isnt an option because i use the home dock and the volume is necessary for the alarm app i use on the phone.
