    Ever since I flashed over to ICS I will randomly and sporadically get a notification sound, but there is never an icon in the notification bar, no alarms set, no unread text messages/emails/missed calls, etc, etc. My phone was just sitting in front of me with the screen off when I get a nice loud "DROOOIIIID" but nothing to actually let me know what set off the notification.

    anyone else experiencing this? does anyone know of a way to find out what is tripping the notification?

    its not a big deal, just an annoyance that I would love to be able to fix

    still haven't come across anything, but I'm still looking.

    i thought i may have found the culprit with my Xfinity connect app, it had notifications turned on, but i turned them off and i'm still getting the randoms. i am yet to see a notification light, its only been sound so far.

    good luck with your search as well

    I kind of worked around it by setting the default notification to silent. Then set all other apps individually. So far so good but it still bugs me not knowing what it is.

    Same problem here. It didn't happen for the first couple of months after upgrading to ICS, but has happened at least a few times a day for the past couple of weeks.

    random "DROOOOIIIID"

    perhaps for some. i don't use that app, and i'm still getting the phantom notifications in SAFE MODE. i'd really like to avoid a factory reset. any additional info?

    thanks!

    In my case I'm pretty sure it was the Hotmail app. It was set to give a notification sound. I changed it to silent and no more phantom notifications

    notification issues

    my notifications have been screwy for a few weeks, now. and i've never used that app, so it's got no bearing on my issues.

    sometimes, i'll get the flashing light, but no audio, when new e-mails come in. often, tho, i'll get both for texts and FB silliness.

    but recently, it's been blowing up with audio & green-light notifications for no reason. just to blow up. i'm holding off on the factory-reset, worst-case-scenario, no-one-knows-what's-wrong-with-your-phone, and-it-might-do-it-again-next-week-BS-solution, because it's BS. and it'll take me a few days to get it all back to normal.

    i'm hoping someone knows something.

    anyone?.....

    anyone?.....

    Bueller?.....

    Frye?....

    I'm having a different issue which I posted yesterday and haven't received a response to. As you've said, nothing major, but seriously annoying. When I get an alert in my status bar, it's always valid, I normally swipe down from status bar to see what it is (email, facebook, etc.) Then touch alert I want to go to to launch application. Now when I first swipe down, all of the status items jump around, switch order and I literally have to wait several seconds for the screen to quiet down before I can do anything. Very annoying as it happens all day and I cannot figure out why an it's a waste of time. No new apps loaded. Any thoughts? Thanks.
