BB Bold 9650 Goes to vibrate or beep by itself

I have a bold 9650 that changes the ringtones I set to vibrate or a single beep by itself.  I check the settings and it is still on what I set it.  When I go through the choices I get no sound or an error message.  If I pull the battery it fixes the problem for a short time, maybe about a day but then it reverts to that problem.  I have searched for this problem and found others with similar issues but short of pulling the battery all the time I can't find a solution.  I haven't downloaded any apps excecpt crunch sms.
