    I am getting a wierd 4 note ascending sound about 2 seconds after i unlock the phone. It happens every time i unlock no matter what security (including none) I use. Not tied to a new app install as far as I know as it started in the middle of the day. tried all of the sound settings, it does not appear to be a system sound as it is not listed as one of the default sounds

    Here is what I know

    The volume is tied to the Music, video, games and other media slider(not notifications or system)
    the sound is four notes ascending (kid of xylaphone-ish)
    It is not a system or downoladed sound (that is visible to me)

    I tried looking on the files thru my computer for a sound file that matched but there are too many folders to sort thru

    I would like to avoid a factory reset if I could, maybe someone out there has experienced this and found a solution???

    Welcome to Android Central! Could it be related to NFC? Is there anything next to the phone that has an NFC chip? For example, is the phone in a wallet-style case that contains some credit cards?

    After two hours on Verizon support, we discovered that it was the Transparent Weather Widget that makes the sound every time it updates, which is when you open the screen. Tap on the weather weather widget, then settings, then turn off notification sounds.
    You should be good to go!
    Good Luck,

    Thanks for the help. Mine was actually the NFC. I have a smuggler case and keep my licence and credit card in the case. I got a new credit card with a NFC built in and didn't not realize it. After every unlock it would activate it. It was driving me crazy.

    Thanks Duane. I've been searching online for days

    >Transparent Weather Widget

    That was it!
