Turn Off Typing Keypad Text Message Sound on Android LG Cell Phone

Updated on November 13, 2012

Turning off Touchpad Typing Sound When You Type Texts

I have an LG Lucid cell phone and I send a lot of text messages. Texting is great for me because I can engage in a ‘conversation’ without making any noise. This is convenient when I want to communicate with someone quickly and privately. I could be in-between meetings at work, in a library, watching a movie, in a restroom or just about anywhere where you want to send a quick message to someone without engaging in a lengthy conversation.

The problem I have is that when I text my touch pad makes a typing sound for every letter or character I enter. The noise the cell phone makes when I text can be heard by others. I want to shut off the sound.

I took me a while to figure out how to mute the keypad when I text. This post will teach you how to turn off the typing Keypad text message sound on Android LG cell phone. If you are not using an LG Lucid, check out this post anyway as it might still help you to figure out what to do on your own wireless phone.

How First I Tried to Mute My Touch Pad Text Sound (Unsuccessfully)

The first time I typed a text and heard the sound I tried to decrease the volume by pressing the rocker switch on the side of the phone that adjusts the sound level. All this did was decrease my ring volume and did nothing for my touch pad sound.

Then I tried a different approach. With my texting screen open, I pressed the menu button on my phone, which on the LG Lucid is that little button with square on it on the lower left hand side. From there I pressed the “More” option that appeared on the touch screen but that didn't get me where I want. That button pretty allows me to view all message and delete

Then I backed out of my text message screen and pressed the button with the square on it again to get the menu. Under the sound settings I played with just about every volume setting possible and my touch pad still made a sound when I type texts.

How to Mute Touch Pad Sound When Texting

I eventually figured it out. The short of it is that from your home screen, press that square menu button and then scroll down to the keyboard settings. From there you will remove the sound feedback and your phone will now be silent when you send text messages.

It really isn't quite that simple but it is not that hard either. Let me teach you step by step how to turn the volume all the way down when you text.

By the way!!! Maybe you've done some software upgrades lately on your LG Lucid cell phone? I did and it changed, slightly, how I do this. If the steps just below this paragraph are not what you are seeing, scroll down and try the other method I posted. Both are real similar.

Here's that confounded 'square' button above my index finger.

Turn Off Sound When Texting – Step By Step

Step 1

From your home screen, press the button I've mentioned before that has the square on it. This will bring up your menu.

Step 2 - Find Settings

Press the “Settings” button on your touch pad. This is the button with the sprocket on it

Step 3 - Keyboard and Language

Scroll down to the “Language & Keyboard”button and press it.

Step 4 - LG Keyboard Key

Look for “LG Keyboard” and Press it

Step 5 - Sound Feedback

There will be a “Sound feedback” field with a check box next to it. If the box is checked it will tell the phone to allow sound feedback when you are pressing keys on the keyboard.

Uncheck the box next to “Sound feedback”

Step 6 - Finish Muting Your Keys

Then simply back out of his screen and now your keys will no longer make a typing sound when you are creating text messages. I hope this helped.

If That Doesn't Work or Isn't What You Are Seeing....

OK, depending on what updates you've done through Verizon you might be seeing something different than we've already covered. If you are a pro at reading between the lines you can probably deduce how to do this based on the info I already gave you. When I did my updates the navigation path remained pretty much the same however some of the wording was different so try this:

Step 1

Go to the settings button again

Step 2

Press "settings"

Step 3

Scroll down to "Language and Input"

Step 4

Press the sprocket icon next to "LG Keyboard"

Step 5

Press "Touch Feedback"

Step 6

Press "Sound on Keypress" so that the check mark in the box is removed

Then navigate out of there (go back to your homepage or wherever) and you are done.
