    A good counter question is do you have any icons in the notification bar? That can be your first step in finding what it is. Strange thing though is almost all apps use the default sound until you change it via the in app settings.

    I am getting this too. There are no notifications in the notification bar. It is puzzling.

    No, i dont see any icon in the notification bar... I have installed Notification History. Let's see if this program can catch the culprit...

    Mine, also have started doing this only the last few days. 2-3 times per day... Maybe it's a bug on Android/Google service... or HTC service...

    Usually, this is when you are roaming, then reconnect to your carrier's network. There is a sound, but no icon.

    I've been getting this randomly as well. When I was in a high rise the roaming/reconnect thing made sense but it's done it twice at home where I normally have 4-5 bars from AT&T so I don't think it's the roaming/reconnect notification.

    I'm on a completely stock (never rooted, never rom-ed) device, so nothing should be out of whack on that end. Be nice to know what the notification was. I wasn't able to get the Notification History app to install (it would download and then hang on installation), so I'm not sure that's going to be much help to me. Maybe someone else can see what pops up on it when the sound chimes.

    Don't worry guys. You have the notify when roaming setting on. If you don't want to be notified any more it is under the mobile network settings.

    Yeah I have data roaming sound off too and it still happened.
    Think I may of found the culprit thought. I installed the Despicable Me game from the play store and i think that was causing it, it was always popping up with notifications anyway but strange how sometimes the notification sound would happen but nothing there to see. Since removing the app it hasn't happened once so fingers crossed!

    I have installed also the despicable me, but i have disabled the notifications for this app. So in my case this sould not be the case. I am waiting for another notification sound, so that the notification history might catch the culprit...

    Any of you guys have the gsam battery monitor app installed?

    Ok, guys. Good news.

    I found "my" culprit... GSam Battery Monitor Pro. I heard the notification sound. Check notification history app. It was the gsam monitor pro. Warning - hot battery (29,6).

    I turned off the alarms on the gsam battery now, and will see if it stops... I think that it's a bug of the app on the last update (5th august). 29,6'C it's not a hot battery i think...

    In the future i can also disable notifications for this app on settings->apps. Let's wait and see if it's necessary...

    You are right. That is no where near a warm battery.
