    Just got my new Galaxy S3 yesterday (See ya iPhone!) and have noticed that it is making random notification noises when there are no new messages or emails. I've read another thread where this was happening due to an alert setting when roaming, but that was for a different phone and besides, I don't have mine set up that way... so far as I can tell..

    Anyone have any ideas? Same issue?

    I've been having the same issue. In my case, it was Yahoo Mail. Even though I had notification sounds disabled in the Android Sound settings, receiving Yahoo emails would force a chime. Once I disabled the audible notification in the Yahoo App settings, the phantom notification sounds disappeared. The notification light still turns on, but I can live with that.

    edit: oh wait, i see you said you didn't get any emails. my bad.

    I've had the same issue and based on the last post, turned off notification sounds for the Yahoo mail app. I think that may have been the culprit as I went through all system notifications thoroughly. It was definitely the same chime sounds. I'll post again if that wasn't the key.

    I've been having that happen too. Never could figure it out. It was the Yahoo tone notification. At least I know I'm not going crazy imagining things! :)

    It was Yahoo Mail for me too. Very annoying. Not sure why it only started today.

    Have you got Bluetooth turned on? I get this in my car & believe it may be because it has found a device to pair with (in my case, it is the car every 30 secs or so!).

    That same exact sound has been bothering me for days too! I finally figured out what was wrong with my phone (Samsung Galaxy 3).

    My NFC was on!
    I saw it on my settings and turned it off, and the ANNOYING beeping stopped!

    Maybe yours is on too.

    Basically the problem is if you setup and email account on your phone, you will have to go into (email app) < general settings, Notifications, and you should see audio notifications , select silent. or turn off notifications
