iPhone 3GS volume adjustment not ringer volume question

I have an iPhone 3GS and I was wondering if you can adjust the overall application volume (i.e. Outside of a game or video clip) separately from the ringer volume. On my old iPod touch, I could use the volume toggle to decrease the volume before a video clip started (for example) to not disturb my wife in bed. Once the clip starts I can decrease the volume on the iPhone, but I often start with a loud second or two first. Is there something Im missing? Thanks.

My iphone volume is extremely low This goes for calls alerts music etc I had an iphone 4 before that was much louder but when i got this new one the volume sounded like a whisper any suggestions

My iphone volume is extremely low. This goes for calls, alerts, music, etc. I had an iphone 4 before that was much louder, but when i got this new one the volume sounded like a whisper. Both volumes are at their max but i can barely hear anything. I have missed many important calls because the ringer was so quiet i couldnt hear. any suggestions?

Ringer volume vs application volume

I usually leave my ringer volume set to maximum. However, many games I like to play are too loud at that volume, so I have to turn them down... but then forget to crank the ringer volume up again until I notice that Ive missed some calls. It seems, though, that some apps maintain their own volume setting independent of the ringer -- that is, it doesnt say ringer when I adjust the volume during the game.
It doesnt seem right for application volume to be tied to ringer volume. Is it up to the app writer to do something to use their own volume as opposed to just using the ringer? And is there a way to make the ringer volume restore to its previous setting after screen lock?

Can someone please explain to me why from time to time, the volume and my phone seems to decrease. I check the settings and it is at a high volume and then some time during the day it is down low... A real pain.....
Is this a flaw in the hardware? or what
Can it be fixed to stay at the high volume?

Ringer volume keeps going to zero

Hi,I own a 3GS and my husband just got a 4. Were having an issue with his ringer volume. It will go all the way down to 0 (or 1 bar). I went in an changed his settings so that the buttons cant change the volume (turned it to OFF) and raised the volume through the bar all the way up. Yet today while at work I kept getting his voice mail. He just called and yet again, the volume was at 1 bar so he didnt hear the phone ringing. When he went into settings the button option was still at OFF but the sound bar was all the way down. We cant figure out what is changing the volume. I dont have this issue on my phone (the 3GS). Is there something else we should be checking?Would love input on this as Im 7½ months pregnant and we really cant afford missed calls.

Iphone ringer volume problem fix

This is basically because of water vapours which get into the port for earphones at the top left of your mobile.

The problem is that your device might be thinking that the junk stuck inside the jack is actually a stereo plug connected, so it turns your built-in speakers off thinking youre jamming with your headphones on, though youre obviously not.

There used to be a fix for this problem via jailbreak by just deleting some file and making one terminal in the port disabled so that you could use ringer with and without earphones.


But now that most of you would have upgraded your software by now so i have got one simple fix for you guys.. and that is....... just try to remove trapped water vapours and possibly some rust that may have deposited there in the audio out (earphone port/ headphone jack) at the top left of your iphone.


In order to do that, just try a cotton bud which we normally use to remove earwax and clean the inner sides of audio port/ headphone jack or whatever you call it.

Its as simple as that.

iPhone 4 - no ringer or sound volume bars

My iPhone 4 no longer rings when a call comes in, keyboard clicks have disappeared and the mute switch and volume buttons do not function (the volume bar does not appear on the screen). I have confirmed that everything works normally when earphones are plugged in (including external speaker sound).


I have restored the software, checked all my settings and cleaned the phone inside and out with electrical cleaning solution. I am sure that it is a hardware problem. Any idea what component I should replace?


Many thanks.

Low music volume on iPhone 4

I got a factory unlocked iPhone 4, and today I put the music I had on my iPod touch 4g.

But, to my nasty surprise, the music AND ONLY THE MUSIC plays much lower than on the iphone. I made a test and tried the same music track on both devices.


On the left, my ipod... on the right, my iphone. As you can see, the settings are exactly the same. It isnt shown, but obviously the volume setting is also the same


Does anyone know why does this happen? As I stated this is only when playing music. The volume for games is the same on the ipod and iphone.


EDIT: By the way, both devices are on iOS 5.0.1

Ringer volume keeps changing itself

So, as the subject line says, my ringer volume keeps changing itself.
I like to keep it at the loudest setting, but I often find the slider in settings has backed itself down.
Anyone else experiencing this? Any suggestions how I can keep it from changing?
Im still running 2.0 - would an update change this?

recent low volume levels on iPhone 3G

I have noticed a recent volume drop in my iPhone 3G (v3.1.3 - 7E18). I used to keep volume up to only about 1/2 to 3/4 of max volume. Now it is up all the way and it isnt very strong. If it is turned down to 1/2 it is barely audible.
I checked to make sure the ipod volume in settings wasnt locked or turned down, but its set at the max level there.
The phone and the ear bud headphones that came with it are about a year old. Does this mean I need new headphones or is this a problem with the phone itself? I would love to be able to turn up the music again!
Thanks for any suggestions.
(and yes, my own hearing is OK- LOL!)

Extremely low volume on iPhone speaker

I have been listening to the iPod feature on my iPhone without issue for a few years. All of a sudden, the volume is so low that I can not hear the audio. Ive checked the volume on the phone, the little red button on the side isnt visible, volume is all the way up on both the iPod app and the phone in settings. Ive removed apps that arent essential to me and have been on the phone before yesterday. Ive also done a restore on the phone. Any suggestions?

iPhone bluetooth headset - very low volume

I just got my iPhone bt headset and the volume is VERY low (even when the iPhone volume setting is max)- to the point that the headset is practically unusable when in car or walking a busy street. Is this a reason-to-return issue or can be fixed (battery calibration, etc.) by myself?

volume of the iPhone is changing automatically to low volume of the iPhone is changing automatically to low

Hi Apple-community,


since a couple of days I have a problem with my volume at my iPhone 4.

When my iPhone is locked, very often the volume is changed to low. I cannot hear any phone call, SMS or any other event where a tone is started. Im checking then the volume and it is at 1 bar - normally close to 100% silent.

Question: What can that be?


Many thx upfront to all feedbacks!

Low Volume Receiver

I have a 3G. For the first couple of weeks I have had no problem with the volume of either the ringer or the receiver (ear piece). Now the ringer volume still works fine. However the volume of the ear piece /receiver is so low that it is practically impossible to hear the other person on the line.
This is nuts. Any ideas would be very very appreciated.

iPhone 4S low volume on phone speaker during phone calls only.

Have checked all packaging removed and can adjust volume levels o.k. in all other apps.

Been through all settings but dont know if I have I missed anything obvious?

iPhone 3GS low mic volume and hot battery

I just got my iPhone 3GS a week ago and i got some issues with it. First i have to say that its a lot faster than my iPhone 3G. After few days the phone suddenly got hot and sucked out my battery. After charging it to 100% during the night i made 2-3 phone calls 2-3 minutes each and then my battery was at 20-30%. The phone was hot so i restarted it and then optimized my settings to lower the used power. This was yesterday and today it works well again.
I also have an issue with the mic volume. My friends tell me that they can barley hear me. It seem to work better when using bluetooth headset.
By posting this here i hope someone at Apple will read it and do something about it.
Overall i love the iPhone!

Very Low Call Volume of two week old iphone Any pointers to resolve this

I just bought the iphone two weeks back. Everything was fine until after I synched up the iphone 3g with itunes and installed some free apps from apple store. I can barely hear other persons voice. Note that increasing the volume using the side buttons is of no use. I am still on version, 2.0.1 ( 5B108).
Does anybody else has this problem? Any one knows about the resolution to this? PS: while i was typing this message I received an att message asking me to upgrade version of my iphone. Is that a good idea ?

Volume phone ringer level constantly drops off

I have the 3G phone, purchased it in January, have version 3.0 and have noticed a problem before the 3.0 update ----
The ringer volume on the phone slowly drops off. I can keep the slide bar at the middle for sound, the ringer is great, after a few days or so it goes to no sound - slider is all the way off, volume shuts off by itself. Cant say if it has happened since new = January - but it has been a long time and before 3.0 upgrade. Anyone have or hear of this problem ?
