Default SMS Tone but no SMS message

Please Login to Remove!

I have had my bold2 for several months now and occasionally I will get the SMS tone and when I check my SMS inbox there is nothing there.

I looked under the profiles to make sure that nothing else had that tone. Is it possible for some other program using that tone to update me about something???

I called in to the tech support with AT&T and they were not able to help me except tell me to go to the store and get a new sim card. Well, it did it again. It is sooo random. I can go days with out it doing that then all of a sudden I get 2-3 false alarms in 1 day.

Has anyone else had this issue???

I am thinking about going to the local warranty center to see if they can exchange it for a new one.

Thank you!!!!

Have you tried changing the SMS tone to something not normally used just to see what happens? If you've checked out all other profiles and you're under warranty and can exchange it, that may be your best bet.

Do you have any sms reminder app installed like berrybuzz or something similar? Same thing happens to me after I get a message and read it and don't back out of it.
