Can anyone explain what the cabin chimes mean on a UAL flight?

I fly this airline frequently and seem to THINK I know, but would like to hear it from someone in the know.

After take-off, there are 2 chimes. I assume this signals to the flight attendants it is safe to get up, etc.

Sometimes during a flight you hear a high-low chime, and sometimes 2 high-low chimes. Is this simply paging the other flight attendants?

Just guessing...

After take off, that is the 10,000 ft chime singnaling the FAs to begin their service.

The 1 chime during flight is when someone calls for an FA. The 2 chimes during flight means that the seat belt sign has either just been turned on or off.

Ahh, thanks.

Additionally, I noticed that the no smoking sign gets turned off briefly, then back on again. I believe I read at one time that this was actually caused by some other action other than deliberately meaning to turn it off/on.
