    OK, it appears that when I get an e-mail notification tone and I don't read the message right away, it seems to repeat the tone periodically (every few minutes or so). Is there any setting so that it does not repeat? I'm not finding one...

    TIA...

    My X keeps enunciating "Verizon wireless" every minute or two, when I'm in a marginal to poor coverage area. I can't find a way to stop it, short of going Silent on everything. Is there a way to disable this?

    Go to Settings-Sound & Display-Roaming Tone ( Disable )

    I thought of that but it didn't occur to me that it could cycle in and out of a roam condition so quickly. Thanks, cal

    OK, this is getting kind of annoying. I had one new email message this AM. Got a notification tone. Then about 10 minutes later another tone, 10 min later another tone. Checked phone and there was only one message. How do you stop the repeating???

    Did you happen to download a 3rd party app for notifications - some of them have the "repeating" option and maybe it is checked by accident...I know the stock gMail app does not have repeating so are you using something else?

    No, no third party apps for any of that. I forgot to mention I am using stock e-mail also...

    I'm having the same problem with my Verizon Droid 2. I'm using an Exchange email account, and unlike the options for a gmail account, there is no option to select "notify once." I've had to set my notification ringtone to "silent." Seems like this is a bug in the OS.

    Hmm... I was going to say, the Touchdown for Exchange app has a setting to keep repeating until you read/silence, but that shoots my theory apart. I just went through all my settings on stock regarding notifications and/or sounds, nothing I see would make this a design of the stock apps. I would have to say that it's some sort of a glitch with your phone. Have you called VZW or Motorola support for help?

    No, but I've had 2 DX's (first one was defective) and they both did this. Others are seeing this too...

    Has anyone found an answer to this yet? This is seriously annoying. I can't leave my phone on at night because the email chimes go off every ten minutes. I've seen this question asked on many forums, so it's obviously a pretty common problem, but I haven't seen an answer yet.

    I have the same problem, but mine seems to be at random times. Sometimes it will be 10 minutes then other times it could be up to 30 minutes.

    Did a factory reset last night and that seems to have fixed it for now...but as I add everything back in, we'll see if it starts up again.
