    I have the Nokia 6230 as of Saturday. Nice phone. I get this strange
    sound from the phone though. I only notice it at night. I have the phone
    on silent at night; ring off, alarms off, vibrate off, everything off. But
    still, at seemingly random times, the phone will make this noise like a
    strange, low volume ring tone: gadung gadung gadung. I get a similar sound
    sometimes when placing a call while in silent mode, just before the first
    ring, lower volume than the random-timed sound. Anyone else experience
    this? Know how to eliminate it?

    Thanks,
    Paul S.

    Hum... the only thing I can think of is its receiving a message near to
    something else like a radio, TV or pc... is it next to your alarm clock?

    Failing that... I had no idea :0)

    Interesting. Thanks for the thought. The phone is near a wireless PC and
    a radio alarm clock. But it has definitely made the tone noise while the
    PC is hybernating and the radio and alarm are off. I have a type B
    wireless access point in the room =:^). How about that? Don't know why it
    does it only about once per hour.

    If it is 'poling' breaking thru it will affect any audio circuit with power
    on it..

    Can always remember, many years ago, whenever I visited a contact I had if
    my phone rung or was poled it use to wipe every television in the shop, so
    they always knew I was there even if they hadn't seen me...

    My newer phone isn't as bad but it still breaks thru if I'm on a landline...

    I have to clear the 6230's good name. I brought my kid's Moto V551 up
    stairs to the same room and got exactly the same sound. So it looks like
    it's not specific to the phone model.

    Found the problem. I have a boom box sterio and CD casset changer. I had
    the power on and set to CD. I set a 6620 (I upgraded from 6230. My wife
    has the 6230 now.) next to it and a half hour later got the sound, pretty
    loud!. Turned off the boom box. No moore problem. The phone was talking to
    the boom box. I was thinking something was talking to the phone.
