How to Turn Off Android Email Notifications – Disable Email Notifications on Galaxy S

OK, so recently I got the Samsung Galaxy S 4G through T-Mobile, love the phone, but the email notifications were driving me crazy.  Every time I got an email, the notification sound would go off.  This got really irritating, especially with all the junk mail that comes through.

After researching this a bit on the internet, everyone kept saying the same thing.
Here is how you turn it off:

  1. Open the EMail App.
  2. Press Menu.
  3. Select More.
  4. Tap Settings.
  5. Check or uncheck email Notification.

So I did this but it didn’t work.  I had 2 email accounts so I made sure that both of them had email notifications unchecked.  But sounds would still come through.

After searching high and low through the phone I found another place where you can turn off the Email Notification on the Android Phone for good!

You have to disable the email notifications in your Gmail App, not the Email App. So here is what to do:

  1. Open the GMail App. (In your applications)
  2. Press Menu.
  3. Select More.
  4. Tap Settings.
  5. Click your email account that you would like to enable or disable the notifications for.
  6. Check or uncheck Email Notification.

So, what do you think?
