Has anyone else experienced this? You make a call on your Sanyo 9000 and before the call is connected you hear a BEEP BEEP BEEP tone. Same thing happens when you get a call and open up the flip. Also when you go into your message service. That bloody BEEP tone. It's starting to get on my wick so if anyone knows how to fix it that'd be brilliant. Cheers

It will just be a 'call connected alert' or something similar. Go into settings, sounds, and maybe 'alerts'.

Turn everything off one by one, and after each one call 0800 000 000 (free call) to see if that was the right one.

Did it do it when you got your phone to start with? Try resetting back to factory settings? I dont think this option wipes the phone book on the Sanyos, but check your userguide anyway, and dont hold me responsible LOL.

JaBZ: It maybe the v/m pip tone..

Can you elaborate on this feature? I have never heard of it, but sounds interesting...
(Though I have heard the beeps the OP is talking about many times...)

sure, it's similar to the MWI (envelope, message waiting indicator) if active on your mailbox it will give a short series of beeps (can't remember how many, 2 or 3 I think) on incoming, outgoing calls which is an indication to you that you have new/uncleared messages in your mailbox.
Can be easily turned on/off, give *123 a call..

Thanks JaBZ. You're a ledge. That's exactly what it was - a voicemail that I hadn't cleared for a couple of days. Excellent site this. First post - great result.
