    I started getting random notification sounds the same day I upgraded to ICS. There will be no actual notifications, but the notification light will blink until I pull the notification window down. I have examined every app and every setting I can think of and made sure the notifications are off. I have already reported noticing a substantial drop in signal strength since the upgrade. I am trying to troubleshoot the notification problem a bit more before reporting it. Not happy with ICS upgrade so far.

    Anyone else experiencing the phantom notification sounds?

    Flashing green. Don't use Yahoo mail. Use gmail and hotmail and have turned notifications off on both.

    Does this happen when your charging the device?? Are there any circumstances that are similar when it happens?? If nit, time to try a fdr, but when you do, unselect backup and restore. That way you get a clean install, and new settings on all of your apps...

    Yep that's my question, are you using the charger and cable that came with the device???

    And also, have you checked to see if your full charge notification is on?

    You should really be using the supplied charger and cable... the charger is VERY important.

    It does not happen when I am charging the device. I have watched Wi-Fi signal, phone signal, and everything else and i can't see a pattern. Notification sounds usually come in groups of two to five within five minutes or so. I suppose my next step would be a factory reset. Do you think that is a good idea?

    If this is happening while charging it might be that you have the charged notification on. it will notify you when you charged your phone in full. if you pickup your phone and play with it for a few secs it resets the notification and it will notify you again that your phone is full after a couple of secs.

    I suggest you do a factory reset, maybe you enabled some notification on the developers option. also that problem that you have while charging that you cant use the phone sounds like a major factory problem. take the phone back to verizon and see if they will give you a new one.

    That was someone else who jumped in with the charging problem. My phone charges fine.

    I've checked the notifications in the developers option and all are off. I've noticed now the notifications occurring at 2 different times. 1. When wifi is on. I've made sure all wifi notifications are off. 2. When the Swype icon appears in the notifications window. I think you're right. Need to do a factory reset. However, waiting to hear back from tech support on the drop in signal strength i reported after the upgrade. That problem is not just a problem of showing fewer bars. I've noticed a huge drop in real-world signal strength immediately after the upgrade. Since the upgrade, i now have to hug windows on the west side of my house to place calls. Didn't have to do that before.
