Every time i turn on my phone or get a system UI notification it uses my text alert sound. Just got my S10 a couple of months ago after upgrading from my S6, which I've had for last 4 years. On all my previous phones you could choose to differentiate the notifications sounds or turn it off altogether. I can't find this option anywhere! Can i turn off the start up sound off? If not, why not? It's getting  to the point where i just want to launch my phone at the wall every time it happens!!

@Twodogs: If you go to Settings > Sounds and Vibration > System Sounds and Vibration > Screen Lock Sound > Off, this should stop your S10 from chiming when you turn on your screen. The notification sound you choose here (Sounds and Vibration > Notifications) will be your general system notification option, however to add a custom notification sound to a specific app please go to Settings > Apps > Select App > Notifications > General Notifications > Sound.

Hi, I have a text notification sound when I first turn on my samsung S10. I have all the system sounds off so not sure what i can do ?

All of the resolutions I have seen do not answer the original question.  What is wanted is to turn off the sound when the phone is first switched on, before you unlock to start the decrypt.  It uses my text message sound which is bloody annoying, what is not wanted is just the unlock sound switch off, that is easy to do.

I have an A20e.  It makes a jingle sound every time it starts from cold.  The sound is same as SMS notifications.  I have set all notifications to silent and the sound continues.

 Is there a different procedure for this handset?  

How can the start jingle be silenced and leave genuine message notifications active and audible?

Rew54McH: If you go to Settings > Sounds and Vibration > Volume (or tap the Volume Down button, then swipe down on the Volume bar), you can reduce the Ringtone and System sounds or move the sliders to the left to mute them. Now, when you restart the device you won't get the start up sound, although please remember to increase the relevant Volume sliders once the restart is complete so you're still alerted to app notifications. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.

I just got the Samsung Galaxy S10e today. Mine does the same thing. My setting suggested in the solution was already implemented (turned off) so this solution did not work for me. It is very annoying.
