    I would add to pappasbike's suggestion: after #4, #5 should be "put the phone to sleep using the top switch." When I slid the slider and unlocked the phone as a step #5, this "fix" did not work for me--the volume reset to 50%. When I put it to sleep as a step 5, it seems to have worked, although it is really too soon to tell.
    I am wondering why only some of us are having this problem...presumably a software bug should affect all of the phones. Any theories about that?

    You're right about putting the phone to sleep, I usually just let the screen go dark and then to sleep. This does work to keep the sound slider to where I set it ( max ). It then stays there during and after calls and text messages, however if you play your ipod and readjust its volume that will reset the slider. I tried playing around with the phones at an Apple store and they all do this as well. I think some people are so distracted by the 3g reception that they haven't yet noticed this. I've also seen a bunch of posts in other threads about some not getting the audible alert for texts and voice mails, I think this may be the same issue. As I said in an earlier post my wife's original iphone that was upgraded to 2.0 now has the issue as well, so hopefully this has been noticed by those that count and will be addressed with the next update.

    The Apple software update 2.0.1 does NOT fix this issue. I was hoping it would.

    I'll have to echo this. The 2.0.1 update didn't fix this for me either. I was really hoping it would, this is the most annoying glitch I have.

    Changing the call volume and changing the iPod volume both change the ringer volume.

    I have no idea why, as these should be at least two different volume settings - i.e. one setting for the ringer and one setting for call and iPod volume.

    I've been using Pappasbike's suggestion from above about setting the volume using the top button and double-press of the home button. It seems to keep my ringer volume at high. It's the best we can do until Apple fixes the issue.

    It's not the 3G; it's the firmware. 2.0 and 2.0.1 broke it. It worked fine under 1.1.4 on the old iPhone.

    Add me to the list no case and still changes on its own
  • Civic Minded Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)
    Add a few more to the list. Mine has been doing the exact same thing since new. My wife and my boss both have a first gen iPhone running 2.0.1, and they too are experiencing the same problem. All I have to do is leave it on the desk, and the volume changes on it's own. No calls, no apps, no texts necessary.

    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
    to full.

    This has been working for me as well for the past week or so.
  • thakoolkat Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    This has been working for me too...
  • Zeebra Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)
    I haven't updated to 2.0.2 yet. Can anyone who was having this issue in 2.0.1 confirm whether the 2.0.2 patch corrects it?
  • jabecker Level 1 Level 1 (135 points)
    Zeebra - didn't fix it for me. All volume settings are still linked as far as I can tell.
  • Irish2DaBone Level 1 Level 1 (25 points)
    ditto... same thing with my 3G 16 gig. I have even kept it sitting on my desk, untouched, and still noticed the vacillating "volume" when my phone rings... not to mention the level of vibration which is impacted when it is in my pocket. I set the vibrate to a high level and will miss several call's not being notified. Glad I am not the only one

    Yup, my phones ringer is always lowering it self. I never lower it, but I raise it all the time, so obviously it is happening on its own. Im wondering if its a conflict with my cars bluetooth or something, but this should not be happening. In a perfect world.
