Default Disabling Volume Button

Is there any way to disable the volume control button as it works on the ringer volume? I use locale, but I bump those buttons often enough and turn the ringer off completely.

Volume control widget on the Market
. Access it via notification bar. Does not disable the buttons but any touch of the buttons get "recovered" within seconds after performing the simple setup. Possibly my favorite widget due to its perfect simplicity.

I am having the same problem. Volume switch is too easily bumped. It would be great to be able to deactivate it.

All I can find in th market is Volume Widget Pro by Spartan Coders. Is that it? There is no "Volume Control Widget"

The app works good but I just don't like that i HAVE to run their app when I actually WANT to change the volume. I use Timeriffic for automatic sound changing based on time of day and I have a quick shortcut on my homescreen to toggle silent, sounds, and vibrate. The volume control app does its job and puts the volume back to the set point, even when these apps change it, which is of course undesired.

Would be cool if the volume control app could differentiate a volume change event that comes from the volume rocker versus elsewhere and allow non-volume rocker changes to stick.

Just downloaded RingGuard. Promts you if you would like to change the volume if you bump the rocker. After a select amount of time it'll revert to the previous setter before the accidental bump. Or you can confirm the change.

RingGuard is perfect, thanks for the heads up on that app!
Just what I needed.

Still a shame the default volume control is so wishy washy...

And if they made the volume rocker harder to press you'd have threads on every forum with people whining about how hard the dang volume is to change on this stupid thing!

My DROID has 4 hardware switches. I ain't mad at any of them.

Thumbs up

Being the app testing freak that I am, I installed RingGuard. I think it does more than just solve this issue. Disabling the volume rocker would render it useless, but with this asp, it's still operable. Nice.

Yeah actually, I am using RingGuard and its pretty slick. Thanks for the suggestion. Still wouldn't mind having a nice widget for this but I wouldn't want to bring an early end to the silence game...

The app is just called 'volulme control' and it's the one with the lady bug. I don't think it has a widget. It's just an app that runs and automatically turns your volume back to the specified setting everytime something tries to change it.

I'm going to check out RingGuard although this sounds like it also won't suit my needs. I want my app that automatically changes my volumes based on times to be allowed to change the volume.

Otherwise, I need one of these apps (Volume control or RingGuard) to add time-based profile changing. I'm just awful at remembering to change my phone back and forth between ring and vibrate.

I originally read this and dismissed it - until today, when I pulled my DROID out of its holster, not realizing I had Pumped up the volume (You knew I was going there).

Thanks to me remembering this thread, I am now also using RingGuard.

Massive props to AirForceMario for the mention.

Better for the apps to cooperate with each other. Something like, Volume Control would send an Intent saying it's going to change the volume to a certain setting. RingGuard would get the Intent (hopefully before the setting takes effect), and know to "auto-confirm" the change. If the other app authors are interested in this, I would be too.

I just installed RingGuard 10 minutes ago and thought it was great. While it's still a good app, it stops Locale from changing the volume when I want it to. Apparently you're monitoring the volume setting, as opposed to monitoring key presses on the volume rocker. Is there any way to monitor use of the volume rocker itself?

i found an app called vibrate mode by force that basically won't allow you to put the volume to silent so if you accidentally hit the rocker to silent, it will intervene and put the phone to vibrate. its kind of in engrish, but it works.

I liked RingGuard but I switched to MC RingLock and like it much better.

- Locks ringer volume.
- No annoying confirmation (like in RingGuard) every time I accidentally hit the volume rocker. You set it and forget it.
- Also option to lock text notification volume.
- Choices of Ring, Vibrate, or silent on widget.
- It's a small widget.
- You can customize widget colors. Hint - press on each setting in menu gives you color options.
- The developer is very responsive to suggestions.

It's a dollar, but it's more than worth it.

Website: MC RingLock for Android

NOTE: After you install it and lock in a volume setting, if you press the volume rocker on the side of the Droid, you see the volume bar change. That doesn't matter. Your ringer will ring at whatever level you set it at on the RingLock widget.

Just to clarify, the confirm dialog is the whole point of RingGuard, and is prominently mentioned in the description. If one wants volume changes to be ignored, then RingGuard just isn't the right app to use. Sigh, I've even gotten some 3-star ratings from users whose only complaint is that they don't like the confirm dialog, or they want it up for less than 5 seconds.

MC RingLock won't let you switch to vibrate or silent via profile. As soon as you use Profile or WidgetLocker or whatever, it instantly goes back to your MC setting. Refund. I just need to have my rocker disabled.

I like eclipse's Volume Locker. Lots of options, he's super-responsive, and with the free audio update notifier plug-in, it works with Locale.

I use Timeriffic to auto set the volumes based on times, but what I think is a problem is that the volume buttons override the Timeriffic settings.

My App (Volume Locker) will let Timeriffic and a few other profiling apps like Locale, Setting Profiles, etc set the volume and still lock the volume buttons.

For locale you need the plugin "Locale Audio Update Notifier" as well.

Volume locker is smashing _except_ it doesn't co-operate with anything that allows me to set the phone to vibrate-only during meetings etc. and have the phone go back to noisy after a certain time (I'm currently using BuzzOff for this and it works well, but obviously Volume Guard intervenes when its trying to restore the volume).

Does Volume Locker cooperate with anything that does the same job as BuzzOff? I'd love to be wrong in my assertion above!

First make sure you've done this: Volume Locker>Service Settings>Allow apps to override. Make sure that box is checked.
Like he said, locale will do this as long as you also install the locale audio update plugin. All you'd need to do in locale was set a time condition with your start and end time (without repeats unless it's a standing thing) and presto! Of course locale is

Hi -- yes, I have that option enabled. The Locale approach isn't right for me -- in practice I walk into situations where my phone needs to be silent, and I then need to be able to quickly tell the phone to be vibrate-only for (say) the next hour.

Hi there!

I just sent an email to you with specifics about the OpenIntent we listen on for volume changes which all our integrated apps utilize. Sadly we can't determine where the volume change is coming from (like app, user, system, camera, etc), so it's up to the app developer to incorporate the intent we listen on for it to be possible.

Feel free to forward that email to the BuzzOff dev, and I'm more than willing to help him get integrated with us.

Thanks!

So far Volume Locker is doing just what I needed it to, keeping me from accidentally turning down the ringer/notification volume while at the same time allowing Setting Profiles to do its thing. Thanks!

I have a Samsung Admire. For the last two days the phone either goes silent mode on it's own. I've tried everything, including downloading the Volume Control App. However, the phone overrides the app and goes back into silent. I can really use some help.

I found the app Volume Locker. It does the auto-revert as spoken of earlier but you have the option of having the pop-up or the tray notification. Very slick!

I've installed RingGuard. It's perfect except for one major flaw:
I use timed profiles (with "Phoneweaver"), making my phone silent at night and active again in the morning. But of course RingGuard prevents Phoneweaver from being able to make any changes to volume.

Has anyone come across anything similar to RingGuard, but with the ability to accept changes made by another app, or its own on/off times, or such?
