    This problem drove me nuts when I got my X. I have never owned a phone that you couldn't stop an alert tone by simply pushing a button, and thought I was doing something wrong or missing a setting. I eventually caved and just used the stock alert tones because they are so short. Hoping someone here has an answer because I could never find one.

    LOL, seriously?

    I looked at this thread yesterday and thought "ya, same problem, but it's so obvious that somebody will come in here with an answer".

    But yet... nobody?!?!

    EVERY other phone I have owned, even "dumb" phones, would shutup when you started mashing buttons.

    Is this REALLY missing on the X?

    I use handcent pop-ups for texts, and when I get a pop-up, I can press the "x" at the top of the box to stop the sound and make the box go away. OF COURSE, this is only useful if your phone is out, screen on, BUT THEN, since your pop-up box disappears, you still have to go thru the regular messaging screen to read what was sent. Which defeats the purpose of a pop-up.

    I haven't found an answer for what OP is asking. But I would be interested. Due to this issue, I have also foregone the long, musical text alert in favor of the short, simple, and to-the-point "Drrrooooiiiidddd".

    there is an option in settings>sound to switch to vibrate during an alert by putting the phone face down. if it's face down in your pocket it, in theory, should automatically go to vibrate. at risk of sounding like a jerk, if you are that concerned about your phone going off, why not keep it on vibrate while you are at work?

    STILL no answer to this. Plenty of views leaves me thinking there is really no function for this?

    Wow, just wow. That's one of the earliest features to the dumbest of cell phones.

    I genuinely surprised.

    I doubly shocked there isn't some app for this. There must be some problem doing this in an app, or it would have already been done.

    Perfect opportunity for someone to make a buck.

    no one is going to develop an app for this. i understand your notification sounds are your choice, but why have a whole song play for an mms? and again, if you are worried about or embarassed by you phone going off at work, turn off the sound. it's silly to think someone would go to the hassle of developing an app for a problem that doesn't have to exist in the first place.
