Disable volume keys
I find the volume keys are in a place where I all too frequently hit them and turn down my volume when pressing the power button. Is there an app or any other way to disable those buttons? I have installed an app to control my volume so I can easily live without those buttons.
+1 on this... it is getting annoying missing phone calls because my ringer volume is lamost completely off... but not quite far enough to enable voibrate.
This was the first annoying thing I noticed. I absolutely hate it.
I keep my ringer silent and enable vibrate. I just put the volume up to as high as it will go, so that when I hit it, the ringer isn't turned to completely "off".
Absolutely agree there needs to be a way to disable it in software - compared to the rest of the Droid that toggle is pretty wimpy.
Ringer Volume Control (free from the Market) does this. Actually the volume buttons are still valid. Just that any non-in-call volume changes via the buttons get reset within seconds. Works like a charm
I too noticed this problem. I use a program called Ringer Volume Control to handle this issue.
There are a couple things to know about this program:
1. It does not autostart, at least that I know about.
2. It does not actually disable the volume button, but returns the ringer volume to the level you set in the program (including the vibrate setting) a second or two after you quit using the volume switch, whether intentionally or not.
The one thing I wish it did also. I do like how it lets you actually adjust your on-going volume profile via the notification bar.

I just installed "Lock Ringer". Lock Ringer v1.0 Application for Android | Tools
It allows you to set the volume and if the buttons are hit, it immediatle sets the volume back to your setting.
RingGuard works pretty good.
