I'm having the same problem... I thought it might be to do with the 3rd Party App called Tuner which i have it on half way vol, but even after setting that as max and putting youtube vol to max and the ipod vol to max... im still having the same problem where the volume just keeps flicking back to either half way point or the minimum level...
Now ive realised that this only happens when i receive phone calls or when i make phone calls... This is really annoying because after reading all what u guys had to say i've tried leaving the phone un touched for more than an hour and still it's the same every time i ring or receive a call the vol just goes wonky...
Apple need to address this issue ASAP...
Wanted to add my voice to this.
I'm using a white 16 GB iphone 3g. Version 2.0 (5A345). The ipod volume setting affects the ringer volume setting. No matter what the ringer volume is set to, eventually it just resets back to what the ipod volume setting is... this happens almost always after i turn the device on/off, but seems to happen by itself at other times too.
I've been having this problem, and it looks like what's happening is that the iPhone keeps different volume settings based on whether you have headphones plugged in or not, but does not have separate iPod vs. ringer settings.
This is what I just tried, and it seems to work for me. I'm hoping this is not just a temporary fix.
1) With the headphones plugged in, open up iPod.
2) Set your volume to your desired headphones setting.
3) Exit iPod
4) Go to Sound Settings and verify the volume is set to what you picked in step 2.
5) Exit Settings.
6) Unplug your headphones.
7) Open up iPod.
8) Set the volume to maximum, or whatever your desired "no headphones" volume is (really whatever you want your ringer volume to be).
9) Exit iPod.
10) Go to Sound Settings and verify the volume is what you picked in step 8.
Apologies for what seems to be a lot of extra and probably useless steps. I'm sure you can just set the headphones/no headphones volume settings right in Sound Settings instead of in the iPod app, but I figured it's safer to just give the exact steps I just tried.
Good luck to everyone trying to get their volume settings sorted out, and here's hoping a future update will actually let us make all these settings on a clearly labeled screen instead of with all this guesswork.
The Apple tech is a moron.
I had my Ringer volume set to full.
My iPod volume without head phones was set to half.
Then I went back to Ringer volume, still full.
Then I went to iPod again without head phones, still half.
Then I pressed the play button.
Then I pressed the pause button.
Then I went and looked, and my ringer volume was half.
Sorry, but the ringer volume should not be tied to the iPod volume in ANY way, headphones, docked, no headphones, whatever.
If this is desired functionality then the designer should be paddled.
The ringer volume is also tied to the call volume. If, while in a call, you turn the volume down, guess what happens? Yep - your ringer volume gets reset, too.
Why, why, why would ringer volume ever be tied to call volume? I use a B/T headset. If I set the call volume to max, I blow my eardrum out. But that doesn't mean I don't want the phone to RING LOUD.
