Hi all,
As you can see I heard that tone only once in my phone. Is that a bug or what? Cuz it looks scary 😅Although I didn't set it as ringtones to any of the text, Mail or so. I checked the apps and didn't find the "Marimba" as default. This happened to me once. So do you know anything about this weird bug ?
Thnxx

Is it your default tone? Could it be set for a contact? It would have to be something that's been set. I don't know any apps that use that as their default alert. Go to Settings >Notifications > start at the top and work down checking each one. Then go to Settings >Sounds > check those. Then go to contacts and check those.

If you still can't find it, try Reset All Settings.
Reset All Settings
Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.

No, no hacking. I've had mysterious tones go off as well. Many of us have. It's usually an email account or something. The tri-tone is what I heard for so long. Thought I'd never find it. LOL
