    I have updated to version 2.0.1 and this problem is happening.

    On the IPhone 3G go to "Settings", "IPod", and then be sure that "Volume Limit" is off. Although this is only suppose to affect music and audio, maybe it is also affecting (a bug) the ringer volume/Phone volume as well. Also click on "Volume Limit" and be sure that "Lock Volume Limit" is not on or you will not be able to shut off the volume limit. You can also drag the slider all the way to the right (max) just to be safe.

    Nope, this isn't the issue as my settings reflect that and the volume still turns itself down.

    It is a bug and Apple knows it, they just won't fix it.

    The VOLUME in general is adjusted no matter what you use that has a volume setting on it. Try using YOUTUBE and change the volume.. Then go to sound settings and whatever you set the volume on youtube it will be the same on the ringer volume..

    Im just getting used to living with it... I wish it was different but, anytime you make a change on "A" "VOLUME" "SETTING" guess what? all is changed =).. I love it!.. NOT!

    Just wanted to add that I got my iPhone at midnight last week, and company came early the next day. Thus, I have had no time to download any music, or any apps, or do anything other than sync my calendars and bookmarks. From the start my iPhone volume not only reset to half, but even when it is reset to half, it will actually NOT ring. For a while I've been thinking I must be doing something weird with the vibrate button on the side, as this is my first iPhone and I'm unfamiliar with it. Today, however, I am 100% certain that the button was in ring mode, and my incoming call only vibrated. Checked my settings, volume had reset to half. Now, not only is my phone not retaining the full volume setting, it's also not ringing on the half volume setting, either.

    I am having the SAME problem, except that my ringer turns all the way down (not half way down, but down to silent). I also thought I was going crazy. But, the volume button just isn't that easy to mistakenly press ... especially FIFTEEN times, which is how many times I would have to press it to go from full volume to the level my phone was constantly at. I haven't used headphones, so that is not the problem. I tried the suggested fix, (with double clicking to access the ringer volume) and my volume was hard set at low/silent. So, I will see if this solves my problem. I hope, I hope!

    Called Apple Support, and he said they are aware of the problem and working on it. He also told me to reconfigure my iphone as a new one through iTunes. Connect iPhone to computer, in iTunes when iPhone screen automatically comes up hit Restore, then set up as new, the verify name click OK. I don't use my phone very much, but have received less than 5 calls, no problems since then.

    Restoring your phone as new erases things you've put in, i.e. my contacts are gone. But, since I hadn't downloaded anything, I basically didn't lose anything but the time involved to put in contacts, which is minor. Restoring as new for somebody else might involve more sacrifices!

    I downloaded 2.02 today. I'm not sure what problems it was designed to correct, but the ring volume issue was not one of them. The problem with the ringer resetting continues. Hopefully, Apple will get this corrected soon so that the ringer is software controlled and the buttons do not affect the setting.

    Ring volume still messed up on mine. The volume intermittently gets set to zero without me changing any volume setting anywhere. Often, switching 3G networking on or off seems to trigger this.
  • Woodman015 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Hi Leigh,

    It seems that I was not the only one suffering these problems, however, I seem to have found a cure.

    If from the locked screen, you double click the "Home" button, you will get an audio control screen. Once I moved the volume on that to full, I have not noticed any changes to my settings within ringtones at all.

    Let me know how you go.

    Regards

    Hi David,

    Well, it's only a temporary fix, as many (above) described
    if you use iPod and change volume there it'll change the ringtone
    volume too.
    Say,
    (1) play music in iPod
    (2) press "Home"
    (3) go "Settings" while music is playing
    (4) go "Sounds"
    (5) double click "Home" to bring iPod contol pannel
    (6) change volume if iPod
    (7) press "Close"

    Now you'll see the ringtone volume is changed same as
    iPod volume, I don't know why apple thinks this ringtone
    volume should be tied to the iPod volume. The ringtone
    volume should be independent from iPod volume.

    Regards,
    cs

    Add me to the list of the ringer volume lowering itself by itself. I have missed a bunch of calls becuase of this

    -Tried to restore, it didn't fix it. (BTW i love that you can't restore from a back up becuase a of glitch and have to do it as a new phone - nice.)

    -Tried the home button - ipod volume workaround and it didn't fix it either.

    -Also tried the plug in your headphones in and adjust your headphones volume becuase your iphone might be getting confused by the two and that didn't fix it.

    at this point i don't know else to do except wait for a patch.

    I'm pretty dissapointed by Steve and Company's efforts on this software its very glitchy even down to basic stuff like this.

    Hey everyone...
    I think it's just gonna do this no matter what, as it changes when you change the volume of music your're listening to. So all you need to do, is turn it up using the side ringer switch everytime you're done listening to music Hope this helps.

    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 may/should solve the problem.
