hi all,
my n7 occasionally plays a warning sound.  its kind of like a bong with lots of reverb.  there is nothing on the screen regardless of any apps running or if I'm on my home screen.  the frequency is not consistant and ranges from almost a day to less then an hour.

there doesn't seem to be any correlation to battery level or any apps that are running of have ran recently.  i have gone into settings and turned notifications to off.  i am not rooted and am running the standard version of kit kat.

this is driving me nuts!  i cant find any log files or any other hint of what the warning is about.

thanks for any help

I will wait on a reply from the OP, as I am a bit skeptical of a post, for the first time on our Forum. Apologies in advance, if I am wrong.

Is NFC turned on?
I used to be crazy until I found out that insane pays more.

Where am I?  What am I doing in this handbasket?

Seems like a notification ringtone, you can turn notifications back on and see if there is accompanying text. Facebook, hangouts, gvoice, VoIP, gmail.

Or go to settings/sounds/tap volume and turn the notification slider all the way down.

thanks for the tip.  i didnt realize that the sound portion and the text portion were separate items.


by any chance is there a logg portion for the notification system?
