It seems like my Samsung smartphone updates a LOT lately. That's fine, I guess. As long as the updates are beneficial.

AAAND, as long as the updates aren't annoying.

Case in phone now dings like a bell when I get a Facebook notification.

"Turn your media volume all the way down if you don't like that," you might say.

Well, that is now easier said that done.

I can have EVERYTHING turned down and I will still hear the notification tone. If I'm incorrectly attributing this irritating new development to the update, I'll own that.

But right now, it's all I got, and I'm going with it.

I guess I'll have to go to the dealer and find out what to do, because if I'm in a movie and it's really intensely quiet and then...DING! Well, then, all eyes are rightly on yours truly.

And they won't be happy eyes.

Is anyone else having this issue?

And if you did and you corrected it, please fill me in.
