    Unbelievably loud and annoying

    Every once in a while, my "notification" alarm becomes a very loud, shrill, nonstop screech (for lack of a better word - it is a very loud, constant high pitched tone). I have PhoneAlarm lite installed, and it usually happens after a missed phone call (it has happened once or twice with voice mail). It is non-stop until I "clear" the notification by viewing the missed call, or listening to the voice mail.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Go through your PA profiles. There is an alert called 1_1khz_0db.mp3 . It is horrible. I'm sure that is the one you are referring to. It is first in alphabetical order and will default to it for some reason as soon as you click in that field, at least the first time.

    Go through all your profiles and make sure you have any alert selected but that one. I think you could search this forum for "Tornado Siren" and find some more information.

    I think that is it.

    Tornado siren is definitely a better description than I could come up with for it....

    When I saw the title of this thread, I knew exactly what the reference was to before I even read the thread. How appropriately described!

    I knew exactly what he was talking about too! It took me a bit to figure out why it was making that noise... I honestly thought my phone was about to explode.

    Unfortunately for me, even when I changed the profiles so that none of them had that tone set, PA would periodically change back to it on its own. I loved the program, but that ring tone was the reason I didn't buy the program. What makes it worse, it was resetting itself on my "work" profile where I needed it to be rather quiet. That noise scares half the building. I can't risk that happening again.

    I sure wish they would remove that awful sound altogether!! I couldn't figure out how to delete it.
