    Yesterday, my droid had a very low phone ring that just randomly started and lasted for a few minutes until I made a call from the phone. While it was ringing, there was no option to pick up a call. The phone was just ringing non stop? Anybody encounter this or know what it is?

    Mine too

    Mine just started a few minutes ago.. I thought it was the neighbor's phone cuz it was so quiet. I did some searching about it and all I found was this thread.

    Looks like we are the first 3 to speak up about this, I would like to know how many people it has happened to.

    I have had my phone since the 9th and first time it happened.
    The last app I installed was PaderSyncFTP, I don't know if there is a connection or not.

    weird

    Were your phones by chance on no sound mode?

    If this happens to me during school I'm pretty much :)

    This happened to me yesterday. I tried playing a music file and its sound was only coming out of the ear piece, where the ringing was coming from. A soft reset fixed it.

    This is the third time sound has stopped coming out of the rear (main) speaker and only out of the ear speaker, the first time for the interminable ringing.

    This happened to me, just now.

    I was surprised to hear the ring because it was so soft, a tone that I didn't recognize as a DROID ring, and because my phone was set to silent, not even vibrate.

    First, I checked to see if I was receiving a call. Nope. Next, I looked in my notifications menu to see if it was from some app. Nope. I decided to open what few apps I had to check if I had unread notifications. Nope. Changing the ringer volume via the sidekeys did not change the volume of the audible ringing tone.

    I searched online and couldn't find anything on the issue. I did, however, receive a message on Twitter of something similar happening to someone else, so I came here.

    Though there appears to be no official release on what this phenomena is, I would hope that enough of us reporting it will urge Verizon, Motorola and/or Google to look into it.

    This happened to me, and it was due to my battery being VERY low. I had to charge it and the ringing went away.

    Just for the record, I neglected to state the charge of my battery. It was full.

    Question for you, rumisra: you hooked your phone up to the charger and the ringing eventually stopped, or you took the battery out and/or turned the phone off?

    I hooked it up to the charger and it immediately stopped. I noticed that the green light on the corner of my phone was now red, and the battery icon was blinknig red, so i figured that was why.

    But it was a VERY faint ringing tone that just wouldn't stop no matter what i did...even if i put my phone on silent.

    But since your battery was in the full stage, i guess that isn't what the problem was. :mad:

    Happened to me as well last night. First, I thought it was part of the commercial that was playing on the radio. Then, I thought it was my friend's phone, he checked and said nope. I noticed it was my Droid, no incoming call, messages, or notifications. A reboot fixed it.

    Not sure if this is the right ringtone, but while I was on a call today the phone started making a weird continuous noise out of the earpiece.
