    In the past few days I've started experiencing a problem with the phone's volume.

    Started one morning when the alarm was ringing very quietly, despite the volume being on full. Then later that day I was using a news app to watch a video and after a minute or so of the video the level of the volume dropped - again the bar was still set to full.

    Finally, I had a timer ring very quietly under the same circumstances.

    I was convinced that I had already upgraded to 2.3.7, but my phone says 2.3.6 so I am in the process of updating now.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions for a fix?

    Any suggestions before I have to take it to the Carphone Warehouse for them to flash it.

    Just today, my alarm snooze came up when i was using the phone and the alarm was so soft i had to crane my neck to hear it, and I didn't change any settings - the volume was at maximum. I then proceeded to make a test alarm, tried smsing myself, the music player and everything was so soft to a point where i couldn't hear it, but the incoming ringtone was not affected though: it was at the correct volume (which was full).

    I restarted my phone and everything worked again. How to fix it? Or do i need to do a hard reset using *2767*3855# which i saw from one of the websites? Since the incoming ringtone worked (when i tried calling myself), it should be a software problem? Will a hard reset solve it then?

    This is my first android phone - I came from Nokia E72 symbian which has too many bugs and am quite sad to encounter problems again... :(
