    Lg Rumor UX260 Beeps every 2 minutes

    HI - I posted this on the LG Site but didn't get any reaction so any ideas
    on how I can figure something out on this would be great.

    sounds like its an incall reminder or something. i forget exactly what its called but it peeps like every min so you can count the mins you are in a call. one of the most useless features with cell phones since they all have a call duration timer now.

    check your in call settings if you have them.
    Dont be a stinker, just be a thinker.

    These speed tests are funny.

    Having had the UX260, that sounds more like a message waiting reminder (inbound text/mms). Do you have a new message in your inbox?

    You can go into your settings to turn that off. I don't have my UX260 with me, so I don't recall how off the top of my head.

    I don't have any new messages from texts or from calls.

    I'll check the call timer.

    I'm going in to:
    1-Settings
    3-Message Alerts
    5-Message Reminder
    was set at
    2-every 2 minutes
    I changed it to
    3-Every 15 minutes

    Now I have to call someone for more than 2 minutes
    (calling phone company and get put on hold)

    I'll see if this changes anything.

    Well that didn't work
    it beeped at 1 minute.
    I thought that was going to work

    I'll look for something else in settings.

    hmm , thats odd . i too , thought it was going to be a "messege waiting" or per min beep in call .
    be sure and update us , if it doesnt stop i would try taking it back if that is a option .

    Sounds like the minute beep is set...

    Try changing these settings:

    9. settings
    1. sound
    5. service alerts
    1. minute beep (if on, turn off)

    HTH,
    Greg

    Just a note to anyone trying to find the source of the minute beep on the Rumor Touch, it's under:

    Main Menu -> Settings -> Ringers -> Call Alerts -> Beep Each Minute.

    Please don't ask me why a in-call per minute beep is under Ringers.

    Bruce.
