    I have the same question. I thought it was the wi-fi.

    Have you tried a simple reset of the Droid? And can you describe the sound?

    the droid tone is one of the notification ringtones, you may have it set in one of your apps and not realize it? I have that tone when I connect to USB and disconnect USB. Could be browser notification? All in all, I bet it's something along those lines. Go through your apps and see what ones have notification settings turned on,and I bet you'll find it.

    We've got a themed section, we have off topic, we have hacks. If this keeps up we're going to need a haunted section!

    Yeah, we've already had several Droid "haunted" posts.

    yup, it gets bad when it rings, there's no record of it in the call log then it gets all quiet as you notice all the fish are staring at you....

    Ringing Droid

    I have heard the ringing also in my Droid Razr. The phone was in my pocket when I heard the ringing. I am a school teacher so, of course, I thought it was a student's phone. It sounds like the digital version of an old fashioned alarm clock bell but rings, in the ear piece only, like an incoming call (i.e., rings for approx 2 seconds and then stops, repeats). I turned my phone off then on and it stopped. I only heard it when my phone was unlocked and like a previous post said when I went to turn it down it was "incoming volume" but with no phone call was made. If anyone knows the cause of this problem I would love to know. It has only happened once...so far.

    Other items of note: my backup assistant had failed and my data signal was nonexistent. My phone works on 3G when inside the building and I do not have my Wifi on.
