    I'm not joking this is not a troll and I'm not wasting your time this is a legitimate problem I have.

    Ok I noticed this about a week ago every now and then my phone will roar or growl if I put it down but it only happens every now and then I already checked I have no viruses and no Trojans and I also made sure I wasnt being a big dumb and it was my notification sound and no it wasnt, my notification sound is a little ding I am so confused by this but at the same time it cracks me up. pls halp

    Did anything happen around that time, that you can recall? Maybe an app you installed? See if looking at a list of your apps jogs your memory.

    Go to your My Apps Play Store page in a browser, not the Play Store app, so they're in date order, newest first.

    Do you see anything that might be the culprit?

    Are you related to Daenerys Targaryen, by chance?

    It is. Everything your phone does is down to some app or other.

    I was once plagued by a random sound for weeks. Turned out that some system monitor app had a temperature alert that was turned on by default and set too low, and just made a sound, no other indication of what it was about. Not saying that's your problem, but it's an example of an app that was making a sound for no obvious reason and giving no indication other than the sound.

    Try running the phone in safe mode. If it stops then you know it's one of the apps you installed rather than a system one (and if it doesn't then you know it's a system app).

    It must be a system one then because I did what you said and it's still happening.

    OK, interesting. Could you tell us what phone? That might help someone.

    And if you browse your sound files (like the notification sound options) is it in there?

    And when you say "if I put it down" what exactly do you mean? That the act of putting the phone down is what triggers this? Just gathering information in the hope of someone making the connection.

    Just tossing out ideas here.

    Since it's making a sound, let's entertain the idea that it's a notification, a phantom alert as in @Hadron's case. I had a phantom alert recently, too, and solved the mystery in the following manner.

    I installed this app, Recent Notification, which is $1.99 for the paid version. Within minutes, I saw what was causing the phantom alert. Problem solved!

    Afterward, @bcrichster enlightened me to an alternative, and it doesn't involve any extra apps. If you're interested in reading our exchange, it starts here in this thread. (And I sound pretty snippy in it, but really didn't intend to. :eek:)

    If you just want the solution:

    - open widgets (may be in your launcher)
    - select the "Settings" gear icon
    - select "Notification Log"
    - place the widget where you want it
    - you're done!

    This will show a log of all your alerts/notifications, but it's bare-bones and not configurable; the app I mentioned lets you configure various things and is prettier.

    Please let us know if any of this helps.
