Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 11:16 PM (in response to Sultanofsap)I'm experiencing this and have tried everything I know to do.
I think the only fix is a software patch from Apple, and I don't think it's related to anything. I left my phone untouched and flat on a table and within 5 minutes (no calls, no use, no nothing), the volume had jumped down.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 11:21 PM (in response to dustinvbu)thanks for the confirmation i was beginning to think i was going nuts. I have tried resetting the settings, restarting the phone etc but no luck. Its a real pain and i really dont feel like walking around with the iphone strapped to my ear just so i dont miss a callIMac, Mac OS X (10.5.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 13, 2008 11:50 PM (in response to Sultanofsap)I think I found a solution to this. Try this
1) If your phone is awake hit the sleep button on top of the phone
2) now hit the home or sleep button so you see the "lock screen"
(the screen with the wallpaper that has the unlock slider)
3) now double click the home button and the ipod controls should come
up on the screen.
4) The volume is probably set at the half way mark...set the volume
....this should solve the problem.
The problem seems to be a firmware issue that the sttings slider is getting confused between the ringer volume settings and the ipod sound settings....I have an original iphone and never noticed this problem at all before the 2.0 update.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 14, 2008 12:06 AM (in response to Sultanofsap)One more thing...you can actually test this glitch.
from the lock screen turn down the ipod volume to lowest
now slide the slider to unlock the phone and use the side buttons to set the ringer to full.
now hit the top button to put the phone to sleep and call the iphone from another...it should ring LOUD.
decline the call go into sound settings...the slider should still read at the lowest setting....
now using the side volume control button try to lower the volume....it should jump to almost full volume.
this is a glitcharoo on Apple's part.

Can you tell me which software version your running. (settings > general > about) It will either be 5A345 or 5A347. I am running 5A347 and cannot replicate this bug, however I am having an array of other issues with the volume on my handset. According to Apple, there should be 3 distinct volume levels... one for the ringer, one earpiece volume and one for audio playback. On my iPhone, these settings seem to blend together and sometimes changing one changes the other, etc.PC, Windows Vista, iPhone 3G & iPod Touch
Currently Being ModeratedJul 14, 2008 7:04 PM (in response to CZS)I am running 5A347...Im surprised you cant replicate this...but I am no iPhone expert so the issue may be caused by a common problem among those of us who do notice this.
The ringer volume will say ringer above the speaker icon when pressing the buttons.
the headphone volume will say ringer (headphones) and will ONLY appear when head phones are attached
the audio playback volume has no words but only the speaker icon...this appears when playing music.
I too have found that when you change one setting, the other settings change as well. I think Firmware 2.0 has a long way to go before it is as solid as 1.1.4 was....at least for me...I never had an issue with 1.1.4 firmware.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 15, 2008 6:19 AM (in response to LakeGuy0001)I've read of multiple problems like a laggy interface and crashing apps. Many people are having apps crash on a regular basis but I hav'nt had that happen more than twice since the update to 2.0. I hav'nt the slightest clue as to why so many iphones are having so many different problems in clusters like this... Some people are seeing the volume issue while others are seeing crashing apps and others(seems like most others ,including me) are seeing a very laggy interface and contact list. I hope Apple updates this soon. I want to say forget the app store and go back to 1.1.4.
Currently Being ModeratedJul 16, 2008 9:08 AM (in response to gaiking)Thanks for the input... I called Apple yesterday and they sent me to exchange the phone which I did and still the same thing.
I tried to follow your instructions but as soon as I called the phone from a land line.. it went back to the half way mark... Any idea what I'm doing wrong?imac, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 20, 2008 10:41 AM (in response to gaiking)I followed your directions and could absolutely duplicate your issue. I'm running the same 5A347 on an 8gig 3g. Listening settings and ringer settings should be a separate thing...Dell Latitude X200, Windows XP
