    The only major complaint I have about my PRO is that it vibrates twice when you power off. Very annoying and no way to disable ! I did finally figure out how to disable the 'drooooid' sound at startup, but the power off vibrate annoys the hell out of me.

    I hope you don't mind my saying this, but aren't you being just a bit too picky?

    I guess anybody can find anything annoying but man, that's kind of taking it a bit far. The Droid at the beginning, I can sort of understand. Well, to be perfectly honest I don't, but at least I have heard others say the same thing. But this vibrating thing?:wacko:

    How many times do you turn it off? I never turn my phone off and neither does my wife.

    ITS THE FACT THAT THE USER DOESN'T HAVE THE ABILITY TO TURN IT OFF!!!! WHY IS THAT SO HARD TO GET?

    There's no reason why the developers of android didn't think enough to allow people to turn power on and power off sounds/vibrates on and off. F-ing idiots in my opinion.

    What if you had no control on your ringtones? Always on and you had no ability to make the phone silent or vibrate? Would that make sense either? Of course not. It's the same thing.

    Droid is the the most customizable phone I've ever owned so that's why I can't believe they don't allow you to control this.

    That's absolute apples and oranges. Ringtones of course, but the fact that the phone vibrates when you turn it off is hardly a comparable issue.

    Look, you have a right to post about anything you want. Well, most anything and this vibrating thing if it bugs you, I have no issue with you talking about it. I personally don't think it's a big deal. And I don't know if you'll find a heck of a lot of people who will agree with you. You've got your opinion, I've told you mine.

    Thank you.

    But really, you could have answered my question.

    Well, PLEASE tell us if there is a way to disable the "droid" sound at startup without rooting!

    Why not root, remove the sound, and then unroot

    If one were to root, remove sound and unroot, would there be a problem when the next upgrade comes along?
