    Hi gang,

    So when I'm on a call, during the call I keep hearing an ongoing Beeep in the background. It's loud, distracting, and annoying. This began happening after the 2.2 update. Otherwise, everything is working ok. It's possibly a timer, or something, how can I shut if off...

    I'm having the same issue and on stock messaging. It sounds like call waiting. It's when texts are coming through during a call and/or e-mail while on a call (on Wi-Fi).

    I truly wish there was a way to shut it off or modify it.

    If you find a way to turn it off, let us know please.

    Under the Sound Settings, there's an option to set a sound when a call is connected. I've never turned it on, so not sure what it is. But maybe that is turned on?

    thats a chime/sound that is initiated when you are making a call, and are connected only.

    i too dislike the new message waiting chime. identical to the old call-waiting....

    I have this same problem. It is not an incoming message. It is a continuous beep every ten seconds. I uninstalled the goos morning app and it still beeps. What the hell is going on?

    It seems like it is beeping every ten seconds. Is it a phone setting?

    After you uninstalled did you reboot the phone?

    The beeping does not happen when connected, I know there's a setting for it..."beep when connected". This is a different problem... It's a loud beep every 10 seconds, and is on going thoughout the conversation. Very, very annoying/distracting.

    I can understand if there's a text, another call, or voicemail coming. But this is not a notification beep.... plz help...... I was talking to my boss, and I sounded frustrated/irritated... That's not good!

    I uninstalled "Good Morning", then took off the battery, did a reboot. All worked fine!

    However, this morning my TEXT Messaging had a weird problem. In the box where you type, it was all Grey color, couldn't type... tried everything with VZW. Finally, had to do a Hard Reset... Now, all is wiped off... and all works!

    I just got my first phone call after the update (I know, no one loves me...) and I heard what sounded like the two "call waiting" beeps while I was talking. But, I also got two emails in while on the phone. Is that a notification setting that you can turn off? And, I also have Good Morning installed, could it have been that instead?

    eta - I never used Good Morning anyway, so just uninstalled it and rebooted. We'll see what happens next time. But if it was the email notification, I still want that to go away. Anyone know how to set that?

    It could be two things. To shut off notifications in email, open email, hit menu button (bottom left) and go into settings. Change them there. I had a problem where my phone was constantly making noises on or off the phone. Verizon had me shut off the notification when I was on their network or roaming and the network lost tone. It's in the sound settings. Take the check mark off of roaming tone and network lost tone. Also, like others have said, turn off the call connect. That is annoying too.

    If you're using Tasker, we figured out that using the Say command (text to speech so you can have your phone say something on events) with a "Notification" stream would cause this. If I disabled Tasker and rebooted, it fixed itself. It seems to be a bug in Android's Text-to-Speech Service, and this could happen with other apps that use it and use the "Notification" sound stream instead of the Media sound stream.

    You can also try killing the Text-to-Speech Service if it happens again.

    Well, so far it has only happened that I got the beeps when I had an email delivered to my inbox. But I'm using Touchdown for my email will have to search for how to set the notifications for that. All I typically get is an envelope in the top bar.

    This happens to me ONLY when it connects over my network extender, and only once at the beginning of the call. If this is happening to you on a regular network, it may be a settings issue or conflicting apps (so many apps, some have to conflict). And don't forget a possible roaming sound.

    Hi guys, I had the same, it feels like ten seconds but is actually a minute. It is the minute minder function in the call settings.

    Settings> Calls> Call Alert>Call Status Tones> Minute Minder.

    Switched off and worked fine. Thought fone was tapped!!! :O
