    So we've had the Droid since November, I used it, no problems, then it got passed down to my technologically challenged husband after he "accidentally" broke his flip phone in half.

    He put some apps on it, and now it's constantly making sounds confirming every action, despite making sure that was unchecked in settings. (It's quiet when he has media volume turned off, but then he has to manually turn it back on every time he wants to play a game or watch a video.)

    I factory reset once, and it was fine, then he put all the same apps back on it, and it started up again. I have now done three more resets, and not only is it not going away, but his same wallpaper keeps coming back, despite it not showing anywhere in the phone's internal memory through Astro, and making sure I had the memory card taken out while resetting. Not only that, but when I attempt to mount the phone to the computer, the memory card shows up, but not the internal memory.

    Did he get a virus? Does anyone have any other ideas of how to resolve this?

    It sounds like there is an app he is using that is causing this to happen. Try downloading one app at a time until you figure out which one is making these noises.

    Figured out the sound part... Settings>Accessibility>Soundback, don't know why that was on, but turned it off, and life greatly improved.
