I've had my LG X Power for about 3 months now. I noticed on occasion at 9:02 a.m. It would give a single loud beep. For awhile I thought it was the Wi-Fi relay at work near my workstation making the noise.
Yesterday it beeped at 9:02 a.m. Last night I took a walk and turned up the volume control for media in my settings but muted the phone to ringtones and notifications.
This morning I was checking the phone and it beeped extremely loud in my hand at 9:02 a.m. The only setting that had the volume up was the music and games, etc. settings. I checked it for alerts but the only indicator that had popped up was that GPS indicator which disappeared about 30 seconds later.
I'm wondering if the loud beep is some sort of 24 hour GPS locator check in. Anyhow, its very disruptive to me and my co workers. If there is a way to stop it from doing that, I would like to know. I'll try muting the music setting and see what happens tomorrow at 9:02 a.m.
UPDATE - OK I put all the volume sliders down except for the "Music, Video, Games & Other Media" slider. The phone beeped again. This time there was no GPS notification so I don't think it's related. No notifications or anything popped up. It beeped at 9:01 today. I wonder if it varies slightly each day or if its getting faster over time. Anyhow, not sure why the phone needs the need to beep at 9:01-02 every morning for no reason.. Just trying to get it to stop.
Good Morning RS1! Thank you for bringing this to our attention. That's really odd. Have you tried using your phone in safe mode? Follow the steps below:
When you boot your phone into Safe mode, it doesn’t run any third-party apps installed on your device. If your smartphone has been acting up or doing some crazy stuff, this the best way to find out if a third party app is doing so.
Thank you for your reply. I followed the instructions above. My phone didn't tell me it was in safe mode and nothing looked different so its possible I did it wrong, however, the phone continues to beep at 9:01 a.m. unless I mute the last slider. It is very strange indeed.
I will try again over the next few days. I only get to try it once daily.
I've been keeping an eye on my phone around 8:59 a.m. 9:03 a.m. I am beginning to suspect the Cisco Jabber app. It is a workplace based messaging, phone app. I only had it installed about a month ago, about the same time I noticed the beeping noise. Perhaps it activates itself automatically each day around 9 a.m. The beginning of the workday. I'll try disabling the app for now and see if that makes a difference.
Understood. Please, do keep us posted if disabling/uninstalling this app stopped the beeping. Look forward to reading back from you.
I'm going to go ahead and say the Cisco Jabber app is the culprit here. Since deactivating it, the morning 9:01 a.m. beeps have stopped. I'll need to follow the issue up with our IT guy. Thanks, Sprint, particularly, Kelvin for your care in this matter. It's nice to know a company stands behind its products and service.
We are glad to know that your issue was resolved. Don't hesitate to get back to us if you have any other questions or concerns.
