    I know I know, we've all heard this one before: I am getting a notification sound that doesn't come along with any kind of actual notification.

    I have checked through all the other forum posts, mine's not Yahoo mail. I have no idea what it is.
    What's more, I installed a notification logging app and whatever is making the sound doesn't even register with it.

    Basically something is making a rather cheerful sound randomly on my phone but it doesn't seem to be associated with any app. Again, Notification Log isn't catching it, either.

    So...how on earth do I proceed here?

    Galaxy S5, unrooted, been doing this phantom tone for a few weeks. Oh and for reference, the sound is a "cheerful" little rising note pattern, and whatever it is, it's not in my bank of notification sounds I can select in settings. No clue what it is

    Welcome to Android Central!

    You can try disabling one app at a time to kind of eliminate each one until you find the right one.
