    Default Bicycle Bell Sound

    Since upgrading to ICS, I heard a bicycle bell sound twice last night. What might this be attached to?

    My assumption is that one of your notification and/or ringtones is not compatible with ICS. I found that my gmail ringtone (which used to be knock knock) only did "one" knock.

    Mine came when the email client could not connect to my road runner account. It may be an error notification.

    I've looked through the phone sound settings, Samsung email settings and Gmail settings. Can't seem to find it.
    The gmail settings have my default ring, and the sound plays correctly when an email arrives. There is no sound setup with my samsung email client.

    You are wrong and right about the bicycle bell sound. Yes, it is one of the selections one can make for their email account. But it also rings randomly even when it is not the one selected. It drives me crazy hearing it on my Tab 2, some days it is constant, like today, which is why i've ended up here. I've searched to find out its wereabouts, to no avail.

    Just go to media/audio and delete the file. Pretty sure it's got bell in the name.

    I went tbrough the complete registration process to help all you people out. My girl friend almost threw myphone out the window over that stupid bell noise. I stumbled acrossed it last nigbt by accident and tbank god cahse it was driving me nuts too. In your email go to settings, then under priority delivery you will find a sound called postman that's the damn bell. Lol if you have any questions do 't asm me cause i'm tired of the dam bell. Anyways good luck.

    I have the note 3. I have spent a great deal of time putting in my email settings so it won't ring. Going under priority mail and stopping notifications will only do it for priority mail, not all mail. Go to settings, application manager, downloaded, "email notifier". Click on that and remove the notification check.

    Settings, application mgr, downloads, email notifier, click on that and uncheck?

    I have the same problem. I have done the steps you suggest but find no "email notifier"after going to application manger, downloaded. I believe I am getting it when I receive email from my live.com account but there is no settings for this account available to me via my Galaxy S3. Thanks.

    I had the same problem and it was not my email or messages.... FINALLY opened everything that could have a notification and it turned out to be messenger... I HOPE! Just did it, so I hope to never hear that stupid ring again!!!

    I went into the Sound settings of my Samsung Galaxy Avant and selected "email," and then looked into my email address. Sure enough, it was set on Postman AKA annoying bicycle bell sound. It is now on Silent. And I no longer feel like I am going schizo.

    Thank you for the posts. I had the same problem after an email update. I noticed that the GMAIL icon was different. I read a post on how to go to the email settings and uncheck the Notifications box. It is really annoying to get an update that turns on a sound that is not one that you selected.

    I tried that. Went to email - settings. The only options are Display, Default Display, Priority Sender Settings, Spam Adresses and Delay email sending.

    No mention of notifications whatsoever.

    Yaaaay! That was it! My sanity is no longer threatened. Why in the name of Beelzebub's testicles can they not put all the notification settings in the same place?

    I think I remember on my Blackberry, I could go to each sound in the sound settings and see what app was associated with it and turn them on and off from there - much easier than trying to go to each app. My daughter says her iPhone is the same way. Would be nice if it was that way using Android - just go to each sound and turn on or off the sound for each associated app.

    Gidday, dumb IT bloke from OZ here- If I can fix that damned postman bell, you'll b able to as well. Here's what I did: On my main screen I have 'email', 'Gmail' & 'messenging' apps (or whatever they are known by in the IT world lol). I went with the 'email' one first-1. press the email app 2. Go down the far left and press the button which brings up a list of things [search/folders/sort by/view mode/font size/settings 3. press 'settings' 4.Then I had a couple of user names for me come up under 'General Preferences-added accounts' 5. I touched the first account and then it brought me into 'common settings' 6. scroll down to 'notification settings' 7. you will see 'select ringtone' 7. press this option 8. and there it is- the dreaded 'postman whistle' 9. I changed this ringtone to 'silent' 10. All good now. Repeat for other 'added accounts until you hunt down the postman11. If you can't find the postman on the 'email' app, then repeat the procedure for Gmail & messaging apps. Hope this helps!

    I hear you Max. My wife has been going bananas due to that bicycle sound.

    "Honey it's the NSA pinging your phone to get access to the microphone " - I said jokingly.

    Nope - it's that silly postman alert. ugh.

    By the way Max - seeing you have your name and pic all up front?

    I decided upon seeing your post and your face to do the same.

    Indeed - I want to see a global society emerge such that people CAN be up front - no frills- 'this is me' etc.

    No kidding, I actually wrote this post MOSTLY to say that one point Max...

    I looked at your pic with your name and said- this person has integrity.

    This person is truly willing to put themselves forward (photo) to the world.

    Then I said- that's the kind of world I want to live in

    Thanks so much everyone as well - my wife can now sleep.

    P.S. Max - love your photo there - you have a keen balance between seriousness and humor- epic tragi-comedic expression
