Android Central Question

This started within the last months and it is regardless of whether I have turned off all applications. It also comes after a restart but then usually only for about 5 seconds.

I recently flashed the cache but that did not change the behavior.

Android version 7.1.2.

Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Do you mean you wiped the cache partition? You don't flash the cache -- you flash firmware to the phone (i.e., the system software).

Does the ringing sound like the default ringtone? Does it go away if you turn off NFC?
