    Tonight my phone started beeping nonstop. sounds like the noise your home phone makes when you leave the handset on after the call is over. I tried turning the phone off/on and no change, thought it might be a low battery thing but it still is doing it now that its on the charger (42%). tried making a call using the dialer and it stops while your on your call but then starts up again when the call is over. adjusting the volume doesn't effect the beeping at all, even changing it to silent mode doesn't help.

    I have Rooted the phone and installed Go launcher Ex. Other then that the phone is basicly stock.

    Help, this is annoying as hell.

    I have been able to get it to stop by removing the battery. it started last night. I removed the battery and everything was fine untill it started again tonight.

    Have you installed any new apps lately? if so try removing them one by one until it stops.

    Got pissed and started all over. Totally reinstalled the stock software and started fresh. now I am busy trying to get it set up back how I liked it. hopefully this fixed the problem.
    At least this time I know a little more about what I am doing and what I do and don't want.

    I had a battery app called BatterMinder that would start beeping if the battery dropped below 30% which mine does frequently, and for some reason even during charge, and after it would be fully charged it would keep beeping even if i turned the app off, and or cleared the cache for it. I just uninstalled the app and it took care of the problem

    Well, its still doing it, guess I will have to take it back. I don't have any battery apps and the battery was full this last time. Seems like it does this like clockwork, every evening.

    Whats should I expect returning this to cricket?

    first flash it back to stock before doing anything else, and see if the problem still there or not, if so than sounds like a defective device...but phone has to be stock with all apps and unrooted, but once you flash the recovery it will take care of all that, well the unroot part and any deleted apps you may have removed.

    Agree..
    If your taking it back to Cricket or Metro and expecting them to do something it better be full stock. Of course you should flash it back to stock and see if that takes care of the beeping issue. Maybe you deleted something that the system is looking for.

    He did say it does it every evening like clockwork and it stops when he's on a call... Lol. But I'm sure he must have thought of that already. (I hope so, anyway)

    It may have been the case when this problem started, but it has been flashed to stock and it still happens and is getting worse. Pulling the battery did not help this last time. I am flashing it to stock once again and I am leaving it stock for a while and see if it still has this issue.

    That's sometimes the best way to troubleshoot,especially if you haven't kept track of when you did exactly what to your phone.If its an app problem,it'll rear its ugly head once more as soon as you load it up again.

    i've been having the same problem. i've had the phone for a total of four days now, and it's been doing it for three. the chick at the cricket store said i couldn't return it unless i got the warranty, but i think the law says otherwise. gonna' try a new one and hope it's just that particular phone. this is the only thread i've found anywhere that described my problem.

    EDIT: phone's never been modded, and the only apps i've installed are facebook and text-to-speech.

    ANOTHER EDIT: a friend told me that certain phones make that noise when they're overheating, but it doesn't seem hot to the touch.

    well i called huawei's tech support and they told me the same thing, and that they'd never heard of anyone having this sort of issue. the op didn't mention it, but at least in my case the noise is coming from the earpiece and not the external speaker, which in my mind would eliminate the possibility of it being an alarm of any sort.

    I have the exact same phone and it's doing the same thing. Then last night it reset itself and now you cant even adjust the time on it for the time zone I am in and the beeping has been worse. I have had this phone only 2 weeks now and it's a piece of shit and the cricket people here are not helpful at all and to top it off they have been extremly rude. Any help in solving this beeping issue would be greatly appreciated

    For any of you having this problem, 1st make sure your phone is no longer rooted, and returned to full stock even with all the bloatware.

    If the phone keeps doing this, then you should return it to the dealer, and exchange it.

    Like any electronics it is possible to get a few defective ones out there.

    It is the app, I had the same problem with the messenger app. I had to always have my phone on silent if I was using the app, however once I switched to CM6 I no longer have this problem, so unistall the app, or upgrade to Cm6.
