I'm not accidently hitting it... a few weeks ago I noticed I was missing calls and have been unable to listen to any media. For some strange reason the phone automatically forces the volume down. The "ringer volume" screen is perpretually visable on the screen blocking my view and draining the battery faster than it normally does (which is too fast anyway). The apps out there, volume locker ect.. don't fix the problem because they don't LOCK it they just automatically try to force it up again....which just gets negated instantlly by whatever bug is happening. This is a recent occurance..maybe the last month or so at the most. I tried a hard reset this morning and still no luck. All the other posts i've read don't seem to be describing my exact problem so I don't know if this is unique to me or what... Anyway I'm up for some suggestions if anyone has it. If I could just disable the volume adjusting peroid and leave it to some different software that would be great. Again... i'm not touching the buttons - it sits flat on my desk and does it with no provocation.
