Default Odd "alert" sound

Please Login to Remove!

Very odd question: about every hour or two my 8830 sounds an "alert" 3 times that sounds like a church bell. I have checked and double checked every icon, program etc but cannot find the source. Any ideas?

no, the battery is not the problem. the sound is like the sound of a church bell tolling exactly 3 times. Quite pleasant, actually. I have not timed it exactly but it occurs at preset times - about 6 or 7 times a day. It's gotten to the point where I almost don't "hear" it. It just bugs me that I can't identify the source. I have checked every program I have. Just very odd.

Most likely a profile alert, go through you active profile to see which one is set to play a church bell sound.

You notice this happen when you receive some type of message..
