    my phone started playing a song last night that i have never heard. It did all night and twice today so far,.
    the only way i get it to stop is to pull down the notification bar.

    i check all my settings, i have no songs attached to ringtones.

    i am at a loss here.


    any suggestions?

    That is strange...

    When you say playing a song, you mean via a music player or something like that, or is it a notification of some kind?

    That has happened to me before. Change your default notification and restart your phone.

    The only thing I can think of is that your phone is haunted with the ghost of Thunderbolts past...ha! That is really strange though.

    This happened to me as well.

    I was enjoying SKY.fm (nice 80s tunes) and then heard some 50s. Next, some top 40. It was playing over top of SKY.fm's audio.

    I thought maybe they were having issues but started to recognize the tracks as MP3s I copied to the phone.

    Come to find out, winamp started playing all by itself. I know no one touched it as it sat on my table and we were in the pool.

    Very odd...

    Do u have any music streaming apps that could have somehow activated. If you can't get it to stop u might have to do a factory reset. Or call in the ghostbusters :-)

    Try deleting the music streaming apps. It more then likely is not the cause. But at least we can remove possable causes

    Here's a thought... Check your battery usage in Settings > About >Battery > Battery use. Anything out of the ordinary showing up in there??

    Also, are you currently rooted?

    Edit: Another thought occurred to me. Maybe check out Settings > Apps > Running Services. Again, anything out of the ordinary running here?

    Good idea. If you are rooted it could be a rom issue

    U might be looking at a factory reset.I would also download and run lookout and make sure there is not a bad app on your phone causing this

    finally trouble shooted it.


    it was a gmail notification from the htc stock email app. it was somehow changed

    it changed it after the last update.

    damn that was aggravating

    thanks for all your suggestions guys.

    That would explain the repeated noise at odd times. Glad you got it figured out
