Hello,

I haven't noticed anyone else post this issue - ever since I updated to Gingerbread I am getting notification sounds for no apparent reason. I do not have voicemail waiting or pending appointments. I have updated again to 4.5.602 and I still have the issue. I have tried settings/sound and I can't locate a solution. I am new here so sorry if this sounds silly to you but it is annoying as it happens quite often.


Thank you, in advance, for your help

Settings->Sound->uncheck Battery Full Notification.

That worked for me. That battery full notification went off if I looked at my phone the wrong way.

Notification sounds

Thanks Kasey - I am unable to locate the Battery Full notification in my sound settings but I did just try turning off the option for notification ringtone - maybe that will do it. I appreciate your reply

Well that did not work - I am still getting the notification sounds and I can't figure out why.

Thank you again - however I have looked there about 100 times and can not locate it. I am going to Settings then Sound. The last option there is Software update alert. I have also checked Battery & Data Manager and several other places. I dislike sounding so dopey but I just don't see it.

I am sorry you are also having the problem Morrock yet a little relieved to know I am not alone. It is so annoying to have that notification sound going off all day long. Let us know if you figure anything out. Is there any point in contacting Verizon?

Will definately post if I find a solution...in the meantime, plugging my phone in as soon as I get home so it flly charges before I go to sleep...:)

Yes it certainly does drain the battery faster since the update. I have gone into Settings/Sound/Notifications/Notification Ringtone and found that "Heaven" was selected and since there is no choice for None or Silent, I chose "Missed It" since it is much shorter. So I still have the sound but it is less annoying. I just went into General/Volume and unchecked "Use incoming call volume for notifications" which gave me a slider for Notification and I am sliding that all the way down. That might help...
