Default Automatic Silent mode?

Why does my phone always turn to silent mode after a period of unuse? I've got silent mode set to off and vibrate set to always. Android version 2.3.3.

BUMP

Can I assume no one else is getting this problem? I think I might just need to upgrade my firmware or something.

Just to explain. After a few hours of not being used I will hear my phone sharply buzz then I will look and find that it has set to vibrate only mode and I have to manually reset it. This affects calls, notifications and alarms which will all be vibrate only.

That's a pretty big fault unless I'm missing something.

There is an option somewhere that the phone will go silent if turned face down...you know good if you enter a meeting. Perhaps this is what is happening?

I wish this feature worked for me but my custom kernel prevents its function.

Hi;
there is many things that can turned on silent mode ;
-If this is some how accedently happening in your pocket, so i'd suggest setting an unlock pattern.
-or if you turn down the ringer volume the whole way it turns on silent mode..

i think that you might try an app that allows the creation of sound profiles for phone ring and notifications. profiles are outdoor, silent.. etc ,its the Night Ringer app I heard about before and i think this should solve this problem

Thanks for the replies guys but this is definately not happening in my pocket or face down. It actually lets out a buzz after a few hours of lying on its back when it changes.

Maybe the easiest thing would be to download an app that overrides it and I can set it how I like.

I should probably update the firmware too as that might solve the issue which no one else seems to be experiencing anyway.

I am having the same issues but its in 2~5 sec
it will auto-change it to silent mode on but not even the vibration will be turn on
btw my vibration is set as away on
and i turn off the "turn over" motion too....
so basically I wouldnt be able to see the phone ring other then putting the phone on my face to see the phone is lighting up cause by the incoming call...

I am also facing this problem. I just feel the buzz of my phone while its lying on its back face up. When I check the phone I find that it turned itself into silent mode. I didnt face this problem earlier when I bought my Galaxy S2. I started getting this problem when I started using Voxer (walkie-Talkie app) actively. What I also noticed is that when I turn my phone into silent and put it in my pocket, it turns into non-silent mode also by itself. Weird problem. Could this be the reason or is it just a coincidence? Can somebody help me please? I would greatly appreciate it.
