    I don't really know if my phone has it, but i'm intrigued by how many people here have this problem. What exactly happens?

    One of the "popular" variations of "The Silent Bug" is when you place a phone call, the call appears to have completed but you nor the receiving party can hear anything. The phone must then be power-cycled before another call can successfully be placed. In my case the variation was I couldn't hear anything, but the recieving party could hear "This mother #$%^&# phone!"....then power cycle, and call back like nothing happened. Frustrating, especially if the call is (was) important.

    I think I may have a variation of the silent bug. sometimes when I receive a call, the phone rings at a normal volume for just a moment, then the ring becomes very very quiet. it is also accompanied by a vibration. this happens even though the ringer is turned all the way up.

    I noticed that the silent bug always happens at important calls.
    No kidding.
    Maybe when answering an important call one answers it too quickly?

    This kinda sounds like you have the "Quiet Ring on Pickup" option checked. It's in the Sound & Display options menu. If it is, then it's supposed to become quitet if you move the phone when it rings.

    Just a thought...

    That's not a bug. Its a "feature". I hate it as well, but fortunately, you can turn it off. Go to settings > Sound and Display, and look for something along the lines of "Quiet ring on pickup" and disable it. Then it will ring at full volume until you answer it.

    If you had the silent bug, your phone would still ring, but you wouldn't hear anything when you answer the call.
