    Hi all,

    New member here so please forgive me if I have posted in the wrong place.

    My S5 (the S2 did it to) continually makes a notification sound when there is no actual message or need for the notification

    Samsung tell me it is a bug in one of the non approved apps I have installed. Is there a way to know which one ??
    I have disabled all the notifications in all the apps I can think of.
    Have performed a Factory Reset and then reinstalled most of the apps I had before. Yet, the problem continues. (Of course if the bug is in one of the apps!)

    Any advice please ? It's driving me mad.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tara

    Be sure that you don't have the text messaging application set to repeat notifications. Not long ago I enabled that feature but then forgot having done it, then I couldn't figure out why the notification bell kept sounding every 10 minutes.

    Thanks for your Drew,

    Nope, it's not that, It is still set on Never.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is the notification you keep hearing the same default tone as with other notifications, or is it a different tone? If it's different, it could be due to the NFC chip, which can give a tone if something else with an NFC chip is nearby. Yahoo Mail is another common culprit for mysterious notifications.
