Exclamation 3 LOUD Tones/Beeps on Disconnect

Please Login to Remove!

2 out of every 3 disconnects results in 3 LOUD tones/beeps, non-escalating.

1 tone is heard from either the ear bud, if an ear bud is connected, or the ear piece, otherwise. The other 2 tones are always heard from the speaker. These tones are loud and obviously annoying, especially when trying to be discreet with the ear bud.

The tones are not controlled/dependent on the earpiece volume or any other volume setting. The volume of the tones can not be controlled.

I have gone through 2 8700C's and am about to start on my 3rd 8700C. I have not noticed a connection with receiving e-mails, text messages, etc.

Any info on these tones would be appreciated.

The other 1 out of 3 disconnect drops the call without a sound. This is a preferred functionality. Perhaps one quiet beep would be nice on a disconnect. However, the beep should come from either the ear bud or ear piece and never from the speaker.
