Perhaps I'm missing something but when I scan an NFC tag via a Galaxy Nexus, the phone always makes the default alert tone.

Is there a way of switching this off? I have scoured the menus / preferences and can't find a way of doing this. The next step ... ICS source code :-/

Programming problems belong on Stack Overflow. Do you need a programmatic solution or are you just looking for a way to turn it off? –  Al E. Jan 5 '12 at 13:37
Either and both !! –  Richard Green Jan 5 '12 at 13:46
have cut/pasted into stack overflow as well now btw –  Richard Green Jan 5 '12 at 13:48
FWIW. I have raised this in the code base feature request list: code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=24022 –  Richard Green Jan 6 '12 at 12:00
