Virus causing odd ring tone or song to play?
 
Hello, This is my first posting. Since yesterday morning, when I hang up from a call, a very strange and loud sound/ring tone plays. This is not a ring tone that I have on my phone. It also happens when I go to "Media" and select a picture to look at and then exit from that screen, as well as when I read an SMS and exit back to the main screen. It is not something that I can stop. I read some forum posts regarding similar situations, from Nov 2009 and Apr 2010 that had many suggestions as to cause, e.g. virus, software problem, etc., as well as fixes, e.g. removing battery. One of the posts suggested that the person had received an SMS with sound, but I have not. I have removed the battery and it does not fix the problem. Perhaps there are other posts on this forum that I have thusfar been unable to drill down to. Any suggestions would be most welcome.
Thank you very much.

I highly doubt that it would be a virus as there are none yet identified that attacks the BB.

One thought, it could be from an Internet site that you might have visited and left open.

Does this happen often? More than once or twice?

Have you checked all of your settings to make sure that you do not have that toe associated with receiving email, or a social media feed?

Thank you for your response. I took the battery out again for about 15 minutes and it seems to have fixed the problem. I don't do any browsing on my phone, but I have been getting odd spam-like messages for a few weeks. Anyway I am glad that I don't have the strange ring anymore.
Thanks again.

Might be worth updating the OS on your phone. Updated OS's usually fix small bugs like that.

I would merely update for the fact that sometimes software becomes corrupt. This is very common with third party ringtones as it corresponds with the profile
