You can disable the sound for new messages in Yahoo! Messenger for the iPhone from the "Settings" app. Other mobile phone users may have to use a different method by physically turning down the phone's volume with the physical controls or via the Settings menu. Either way, you can silence the alert sounds no matter which phone you have.
