Text notification noise won't stop!

    In the settings, I chose a notification noise for when I receive a text. This works fine. However, there's a separate "reminder" noise, for when I dont look at the text right away, that does not stop even after I read the text. It's a low "dunk" noise and occurs every few minutes. The only way I can clear it is to restart my phone. Any ideas on a way I can fix this issue? I should mention the icon showing a text msg has arrived (in the top bar of the screen) disappears after I read the text, the only issue is the ongoing tone.

    In your settings of the app, go into Settings > reminders and uncheck it. ( I am using Handcent and if you have reminders checked you then get tons of options.) If you are stock, just look for Reminders in your settings.

    I found this post odd at first since there is no native reminder notification that sounds off any type of audible sound to let you know you missed a call or text message on Dinc2.
    I figured that the user must have been using some type of app like handcent or easy reminder or something else...
    I am on stock and when you miss a call, text or email, the notification light just blinks for 5 mins then stops and is not accompanied by any audible sound to alert you of the missed event.

    Where is this reminders in settings you speak of?
    Maybe I am overlooking something...

    I am not using Handcent. I am just using whatever came on the phone. Yes, I do get a green flashing light when I have a text message or some other notification. My phone, per my settings, makes a different noise to notify me a text or a talk or a email came in. They all ding one time. However, I get a "dunk" noise after the initial text message noise (which is NOT a dunk). This dunk will continue on indefinitely, even if I read the text message & haven't rec'd any others. It won't stop until I restart. I don't see Reminders in my settings. And I wouldn't mind the dunk if I actually had a new message to read. It's annoying it won't stop, and I can't find anywhere to turn off the noise or even change it.

    I really appreciate the help - let me know if you need more info or if I am not making sense.

    My guess is that the "dunk" sound is not related to your text messages.

    Yes, it absolutely is. I've had the phone for several months & have finally determined why/when it is happening. I don't get many text messages, so my phone is fine until I get a text and then that noise begins & doesn't stop whether or not I read it. It never happens otherwise.

    Have you tried a battery pull?
    With the phone turned on take the back cover off and pull the battery, leave it out for like 5 min. then put it back in and reboot the phone.
    See if it does it again after that.

    Thanks....I tried the battery pull, no dice. Just got a text, read it and now every 5 minutes that noise sounds. this is so annoying! It isn't even a noise you can pick from the list of sounds. i should take a video of it so u can hear what I mean.

    Do you have any app installed that has anything to do with texts?

    No. I just use the regular texting feature included w/ the phone. I really haven't added much, or anything that would seemingly involve my text features. My husband has the same phone & his doesn't do this.

    I dont see an option to remove or change reminder notices. It's like its a flaw with my phone, not something that is even offered on this phone, and therefore no way to stop it. I think its telling I have to shut my phone off completely to get it to stop upon restart.

    We're down to a Factory Reset as the last option to get rid of this thing. Settings> Sdcard & Storage> Factory Reset. If that doesn't fix it it's a hardware problem.

    it is the Hangout_ringtone. I changed it to Mira and it doesn't do it anymore.

    I'm running android 4.4.2 on a Sharp Aquos and was having the exact same problem. I finally found the setting under
    System Settings => Accessibility => Persistent Alerts (Uncheck)

    This is (very obscurely) buried at the bottom of the Accessibility section for me
