    My SprintPCS Nokia 3588i plays a loud annoying tune for a couple of seconds every time I
    turn it on. I called Sprint and they say Nokia "may" know how to mute it. There is no
    option for this welcome tune anyway on the phone (only an option to customize the welcome
    text message). I'll try calling Nokia when I have the time, however any thoughts or help in
    the meantime would be greatly appreciated .... Thanks.

    Have a look for "Start-Up Tone" in Phone settings and change it to Off.
    Every Nokia I have seen has this setting.

    Thanks, your suggestion led me to the solution via another method ... turns out I had to
    turn off the Warning Tones under Profiles. Sprint apparently did not spec a "Start-Up Tone"
    from Nokia in the 3588i.

    Re: Can I Mute the Welcome Startup Music?

    Yes, thanks ... I think that's right. I've turned the warning tones back on because in
    retrospect I can live with the short startup tune once a day ....... :-)

    You can also tap the "end" button on your keypad at startup. This will
    stop the music from playing. Kind of annoying, but it works... and it
    only takes a second or so since you'll have your phone in hand since
    you've just turned it on.
