    Evening all,

    A bizarre problem has developed on my Magic (Vodafone, 1.6) whereby the Ringer volume keeps setting itself to the lowest setting.

    Five times today I've missed a call, and upon pressing volume up, noticed the Ringer Volume was on zero. I set it back to about 50% and locked the phone again. After it had happened about 3 times, I took to repeatedly checking the phone, and it seemed that the volume was remaining where set, until I missed a call again... and this is where it gets weird:

    Every time a call comes in, the ringer volume sets to zero, and I miss the call!

    How bizarre is that? I have checked the volume repeatedly to find it was ok, then I miss another call and I find the volume on zero again. I have switched the phone off and on several times without the problem going away. I don't have any apps or widgets installed that alter the ringer volume, the only thing I have which is along these lines is "Smart Vibrator". Oh and it doesn't matter how I set the volume, with the buttons on the side of the phone or through the Settings, the problem still occurs.

    Does anyone have any idea what's going on? Because this is driving me insane and the phone has nearly gone across the room on several occasions! :mad:

    Hi Noodle999 :)

    Try downloading this app "AudioManager Widget" off the market and set them all up to the max. Now try getting someone to phone you and see if the problem is still there.

    If it is still their , I would try a factory reset
