My phone keeps switching from sound to vibrate and back again every few seconds. What causes this to happen and how can I stop it?

Hi @WokingBoy  Go to Settings-Sounds and Vibration- Volume. Ensure the slides for Notifications and System Volume are set to an appropriate level.  you may then need to check recent Notifications and check that  the alert is checked for appropriate apps.    An example for Gmail here:

Thank you but, unfortunately, the switch from sound to vibrate and back is continuous without anything else happening on my phone eg: no notifications, no messages, no calls. It just keeps going on and on and is driving me crazy.

@WokingBoy  ok, thanks for confirming.  you could try clearing the cache partition to see if that makes a difference :

  1. Turn off the device.
  2. Connect To Computer or plug in USB-C Headphones  , Press and hold the Volume Up key and then press and hold the Power key .
  3. When the Android logo displays, release all three keys.
  4. An 'Installing system update' message will show for 30 - 60 seconds before the Android system recovery menu options appear.
  5. Press the Volume down key several times to highlight wipe cache partition.
  6. Press Power key to select.
  7. Press the Volume down key to highlight yes, them and press the Power key to select.
  8. When the wipe cache partition is complete, Reboot system now is highlighted.

Press the Power key to restart the device.

Factory  Reset  an option if all else fails though realise can be reluctance to do so,would need to ensure all Data is backed up obviously .
