    I keep changing my volume when I go for the power button. Several times I had unknowingly lowered it to nothing.

    Is there an app that will lock in the volume so the keys won't work (unless I want them to)

    This would be fantastic, I have the same issue at least 10 times a day. I don't know of one currently though

    foxyRing

    Foxyring prevents changes to the volume control rocker switch from changing the ringer volume. It boots with the phone, and confirms in notifications that it's on. It automatically sets volume control based on ambient sound. The user sets the range - how low the ring is when it's quiet and how loud it is when the ambient sound level is high. You can also set how often it checks ambient sound levels, I think it was from 4 to 20 minutes. At every 20 minutes, battery usage is minimal - it only takes about 5 seconds for the app to check ambient sound levels. You also have an option to set a silent period, ie, when you sleep, however long you like.

    There is a new app called ring guard. This will give you up to 30 seconds to confirm a volume change on your ringer. Works great.

    volume control app

    I use the Volume Control app in the market. This one is from a developer called "New".

    If I may tout the advantages of RingGuard over Volume Control (which I tried before I wrote RingGuard)...

    1) Lets you use any volume level, not only silent or full-on.

    2) Lets you change volume using the convenient volume rocker, and you don't have to touch the screen at all to confirm the change (if you configure the BACK and/or MENU and/or SEARCH keys as confirm keys).

    3) Starts automatically on power-up if it was enabled, so you're always protected.

    Hi X,

    I will have to give your app a try. I am not suggesting that Volume Control is better than your app- since I have no experience with it I cannot make any comparisons. I am just sharing my experience with the app I've used so the OP would know what's available.

    Notes:
    1) The Volume Control app also lets you use any volume level- I keep mine set at 4 usually and I can easily choose whether or not I want vibrate on or silent mode with a button press.

    2) Although this may not be important to everyone, I do prefer having to open the app because if I do accidentally hit the rocker, I would likely accidentally hit it again and confirm the wrong volume level. Again, I have not used your program yet so I will have to see if that is actually the case. If it is the case, I might suggest that you make an option to turn that feature off for people like me.

    3) This is a nice feature I wish Volume Control had. If my phone resets for any reason I sometimes forget to turn Volume Control back on, so this is a big thumbs up for me!

    In any case, I hope you do well with your app and I wish you luck!

    Rocker switch DOESN'T confirm volume change

    The rocker switch is active when the confirm screen is up, so you can tweak the volume level before confirming. But it doesn't confirm the volume change. You can configure the BACK, MENU, and SEARCH buttons to confirm, and you can confirm on-screen. Personally I'd stay away from using the SEARCH button because I'm always touching it accidentally, but it's there if you want it.

    Thanks for the pointer to Ring Guard. I just missed an important call from my wife yesterday, and tracked the cause down to my ring volume getting lowered by accident while the phone was in my pocket.

    Ring guard

    That seems to be the ticket to inadvertently changing the volume

    Look for ringguard, all one word. Half the apps I couldn't find at first search, I had to make into one word.

    I keep accidentally lowering the ring volume, so definitely will give this a try, thanks!!!
