    ok, this is driving me bonkers! hope someone has a fix!
    my phone(only a few months old and not rooted or anything - i'm a newb) takes spells where it makes the sound used to indicate that it has been plugged into or unplugged from the charger. once it starts, it is relentless and the only way i can figure out to stop it is to turn volume down then i can't hear my phone ring! HELP!
    i have tried shutting it down(even leaving it off for a few minutes), restarting it, blowing out the port to clear any dust etc, and even removing the battery and cleaning it while it's off.
    Any ideas? anyone else run into this?
    Thanx in advance for any help!

    NOTE- I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY IF THIS CAUSES DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE. THIS IS JUST WHAT WORKS FOR ME.

    Only thing i could suggest is good a dollar Bill into a triangle and use the corner to clean the contacts... Sometimes my phone gets stuck 'charging' when it's not plunges in to anything... I either use the dollar trick, or insert the charger then apply a slight downward pressure and pull it out with a bit of force (to 'rake' the contacts clean)

    have you let your phone completely drain?
    if you constantly charge it it can happen.
    also your connection pins might be broken
    (this was hapening to my sisters phone. and now im sending it to samsung as we speak.)
