I have a Samsung...

I have a Samsung Galaxy 7 cell phone that rings a single ring every two minutes. I have checked all my notifications, and that is not the cause. I like to use my phone as an Alarm clock in the morning, but this irritating ring makes that dificult.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your Galaxy?

Please tell me how to find out the Operating System

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Galaxy? What have you tried so far?

It has been ringing like this for a few months. I have checked all my notifications but that is not the cause. I have given the pone to others who are more technical, and that did not help.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Smartphone Expert to know before I connect you?

If you could connect with my phone and take care of this problem ring, that would be great.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I had given up on Answer it, and I had some major health problems. The rind happens every two minutes all day long. I turn it down to vibrate, and I miss some calls because of that.

Would you like to continue or cancel?

Have you tried a factory reset?

Ask Your Own Android Devices Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No. How do I go about that? I am in a wheelchair, and if I have moved to my life chair, I don't get back to my desk too quickly.
  1. From a Home screen, navigate: Apps > Settings > Backup and reset (Personal section).
    These instructions apply to Standard mode only.
  2. From the Reset section, tap Factory data reset.
    If troubleshooting third-party apps, turn off the Automatic restore option.
  3. Tap RESET PHONE.
    If presented, enter the current passcode or draw the unlock pattern.
  4. Tap DELETE ALL to confirm.
