Volume Rocker Switch Position

    I think the placement of the volume rocker switch is an unfortunate one. I know it may be partly my clumsiness, but I find myself hitting that switch and turning the volume way up, or way down, almost every type I switch the phone from portrait to landscape. Is anyone else having similar problems? I wish there was a way to "lock" that switch and only unlock it when I "actually" want to change the volume level.

    This is my only complaint for this phone. I hit the volume rocker all the time when I started using it but i do think you have to adjust to it. I don't nearly hit the volume as much as I used to after a week.

    I hit it all the time too, it's ok there, it's just not as stiff so you easily press em

    I think the right type of case for the phone might make the problem less prominent. Looking around to find one, there are so many of them...

    It's not just the location, it's how easy it is to press. The combination is just horrible. No idea why they'd place it so low. Makes no sense.

    yes, one would have thought the initial testers would have noticed this. I mean most new owners notice it within minutes.

    Amazing. Still best phone I have owned though.
