    My minutes ran out on my phone. I use Tracfone and this is a Verizon LG G5 phone I got from my father.

    I have been using it a few months without issue. My account expired at the beginning of this month, and I finally got more minute today.

    I activate my phone without issue and everything seems fine, but I just get constant notification dings, but nothing shows up in notifications or at my main phone screen when I double tap to wake it for use.

    I'm baffled as it was fine before reactivation. But after activation, it is a constant ding about every few minutes or less.

    I even turned off notifcations and blocked everything. Then I turned off data as a search on Google said it could be roaming dings being found.

    Anyway, I was hoping someone had some insight on this issue. It's been going on for several hours now, non-stop.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Does it go away if you turn off NFC?

    What's an NFC?

    NFC means Near Field Communication. It allows you to do things like tap-to-pay (Google Pay, or on iPhones, Apple Pay). It can also set off notification tones if there's something else with an NFC chip right next to the phone (e.g., a credit card in a wallet-type phone case that's right up against the back of the phone).

    I just got back from the store. I stopped by the phone store and they fixed it. They didn't seem to be sure what it was, they disabled a bunch of things and said it was likely Shazam.

    Thanks for the description. I'll make sure to remember for next.
