So I was just sitting at my desk at home goofing off on ... BlackBerry Bold forum
5 random vibrates and "Notifier_Sonar" sound
So I was just sitting at my desk at home goofing off on the computer. My 1-day old BB Bold is sitting in front of me not wired to anything. The mobile network and wifi are currently connected to EDGE and my linksys router. I have the following apps download on my phone, but none were actually running: gmail, myspace, facebook, jivetalk, and gmaps.
So, about 5 times in a row my phone did 2 vibrates and the "Notifier_Sonar" sound 3 times. It was as if I got some kinda message or notification or something, but I didn't see anything that would indicated that. I was on the "Loud" profile, but nothing in that profile is set to make the "Notifier_Sonar" sound.
Any idea why this may have happened or how I can figure it out? Thanks
Do you have facebook or myspace installed? I was surprised when I go a strange notification icon on the main page of my curve. I didn't know what it was. Until I finally figured out Facebook and now Myspace actually do real notifications. I've only had them for a few days on the bb. Other than that, I got nothin'...
I do have facebook and myspace installed, but when I get notifications for facebook and myspace, it's pretty clear. I have them set to silent so that the LED blinks and the little notification icon shows up, nothing else. So, as far as I can tell, facebook and myspace aren't causing the problem.

Other than that, I don't know what else to tell you. Hope this gives you some insight.
Doesn't seem like that's it either. Thanks for trying.

Yeah I'd say gmail , doesn't have the notification like other stuff , will just have a piece of mail with a star behind it and no notification at the top like most normal applications

gmail was off at the time. i had no 3rd party apps running at the time.
Check in your Profile and see what your notifications are set for that match what you are getting.
Adapt, Overcome, Improvise, Achieve!
i did that too. nothing in the profile matched oddly enough. i'm just thinking it was a glitch now. i'm going to get a headache if i think about it anymore haha.

Is there a place to get a list of which functions use which sounds?
Hey there. I just had the same thing happen with my pearl bout 3 weeks ago. It would do it every 6 hours. Different tone though but same one every time. I did everything! Got new service books sent, wiped the phone, everything! You need to call your provider and they will make you go through the same steps, but will end up having to send you a new one, so to save time, make sure and do a backup on DM now. With my replacement device, no problems. Good luck!
