    disable text message notifications while on phone

    how do I disable text notifications while I am on a call? I dont see the option in either the Phone settings or the messaging settings. It gets annoying when I am on a call and my text message notification goes off. Thanks

    You can disable notifications in the bar that comes up when you swipe down from the top

    Gord, if you are describing the bar with the WI-FI, Bluetooth, GPS, Sound, etc then that is a manual process I need to do everytime a call comes in and ends. I am looking for an option (or app) that automatically disables or mutes incomming notifications as soon as I answer the phone and then unmutes/enable when the call is finished. If there is a way to do this as you described, what are the steps to enable this feature? I would have expected Samsung or Android to have this as a default.

    thanks

    I think this is what you are looking for... open the phone app, hit menu > call settings > call alert > and check "alerts on call". I have it checked on mine and haven't ever heard any notifications while I've been on a call.

    Interesting, I had that option "checked" off, which is why I was surprised with getting text message notifications while on a call. I "unselected" it and will recycle my phone then reselect.

    I use Handcent and have the stock SMS app disabled and I don't get audio notifications of incoming texts -- I have to manually check after I get done with a call.

    I keep my sms notification on vibrate so I'll know if a text comes through while I'm on a call. I like having the ability to drop down your notification bar and reply to it if need be.
