    So when I am on a phone call, I will get a constant beep every 10 seconds. It is not an incoming SMS or Email or anything like that. It is just a continuous beeping pattern. I tried uninstalling every app I've installed since it started and it's still there. Any ideas?

    My wife has been complaining that she's hearing a beeping, which she thought was an incoming call, but no one was there. She thought maybe it was a notification for incoming text messages or voicemail. She's out of town, but said she was making some adjustments to notification sounds. I'll let you know if that works.

    Have you checked to make sure you are not in an extended network? You may have your roaming tone turned on.

    Definitely not roaming.

    Is it a quick double beep every ten seconds? I've had the same problem ever since updating to Froyo. I've read up about it online, and... it's not necessarily great news. Powering the phone off and back on seems to be a temporary solution. The first few times I power cycled the phone, it went away for an hour or two. Knock wood, after the last power cycle, I haven't gotten it for a few days. A complete factory reset seems to work for some people, too.

    Good luck...

    I had my wife power cycle her X. She also changed the notification for text messages and hasn't had a problem since. [knocking on wood]

    I had it too. A battery pull seems to have fixed it.

    Seems like we all have the same problem and it seems like it's yet another Froyo bug. I rebooted and I haven't hears the beeping since. But I've only made 2 phone calls.

    This very issue has been discussed frequently on the Motorola Owner's Forum which everyone here should join.

    The problem was recreated by someone using the search function to find a Google contact.

    Most of the time the problem is fixed by a battery pull.

    There's another possibility - that you need to do a *228 / 2 (if you are on Verizon) - the roaming update. It locates the nearest cell towers to wherever you are, improving your reception. If you move around a lot geographically, doing this update periodically is a battery saver, as well... Phone portion doesn't have to work so hard to get a signal.

    The only time mine has done this is when I have the alarm or timer set. Maybe a calendar reminder too

    My x has done the same thing twice now since upgrading ...a beep during a call that sounds like an incoming call, then the phone becomes unresponsive and, although it appears the call has terminated, the other party can still hear you, but you can't hear them.

    Bouncing around a few screens made the call reappear this last time.

    Strange ...

    Ok guys have a look into this.
    Go to your settings.
    Call
    Call Alerts
    Call Status Tones

    Uncheck minute minder if there is a check in that box and the beeping during calls should stop


    Regards

    Ghostflyer is 100% correct. His solution will solve your problem. Remember to remove the minute minder check.

    Hi,...
    Even I had the experience of this continuous beep during phone calls.
    During my phone calls to get the alert on the minute reminder I put the 50 second reminder as on in my call settings..and since then I am facing the problem wherein I am told that there is a continuous beep sound for ten seconds in my call and that is irritating the person at the other end.
    Ever since I put the settings off I am not facing the issue. Just try and let me know if it works for you.

    I tried to find the settings to shut off the timer to stop this but my phone doesn't have this option any other ideas?

    No, but the "solution" provided wouldn't have worked anyway as it "fixes" a completely different problem.

    So I figured out what the beep was when I made a call and heard what sounds like a call waiting tone, it might be a different sound or beep for different phones, mine is an LG premier, it is the data roaming, doesn't matter if you are roaming, if it's on, I get a beep, I turned it off and no beep... Wa La!

    My phone beeps while I am talking on it. I have call waiting turned off. The beeping noise is very loud and the one I am on the with, we cannot hear each other and hurts my ears to no end. If anyone is able to help you with my issue I would immensely appreciate it. Thank you for your time and support.
