    Question What happens when I put my phone down?

    my gnex makes a noise when I put it down on the table (not the only time it makes a noise..,) if my keyboard is on it will close but it feels like more happens.. when I listen to music and put it down the music stops for about 2seconds... does anyone know what happens and how I can control it?

    That's wierd...do you have an app installed that modifies your notifications, i.e Lightflow, etc? If so, it may be a bug with the app or that the app's not set correctly.

    I know this is probably too basic, but do you have Screen Lock sounds checked in the Settings/Sounds checked.

    I really think you are going to find some app that is doing it like Dippa suggests.

    If it's bothering you and you can not find the source, you could always just do a Factory Reset. I know that's a little drastic, but if it's simply driving you nuts. . . . . . Just remember with the Gnex a Factory Reset wipes everything off the sdcard. That means you will need to backup your personal files. You can simply copy most of them to your computer, but some like SMS and Texts won't work that way. There are apps in the market to backup those sort of things.

    Good luck

    Hi Guys, I actually found the same issue this morning! The same sound that you described. I even tried to download "lightflow" and it didn't help! After trying several things. I found that it only happened when I put my phone on my wallet which contains a RFID card to get into my apartment building. Then I thought about the NFC! It ended up that actually the NFC somehow detects my RFID card and find a connection - thus the sound. After turning off the NFC option, then there is no more sound! Hope this helps!

    But it happens when I put down my phone anywhere... On my couch, table etc... Maybe irs the detection of being bumped by the nfc? Or shouldn't it do that?

    Hmmm...it does sound like it could be NFC, because when NFC reads a signal but doesn't recognize it, it does make a noise similar to what you're describing. Didn't think about NFC before, but that could be what is causing the issues.

    Cynthia, try disabling NFC as the poster above suggested, by going into settings > more > nfc > and uncheck NFC.

    See if that resolves your issues...if not, at least we can rule out NFC as the cause...
