    S4 Keeps turning down ringtone and incall volume on its own!

    My S4 keeps turning down ringtone and call volume on its own. I really hate the rocker switch. I have to be very careful when holding the phone NOT to hit it and turn down volume, but it still is a problem.

    I don't think I am now hitting the damn rocker switch, but STILL I am missing calls, and when I look at settings>device>sound the ringtone is at zero and there is a slash through the speaker icon and zero ringtone and often, but not always, the incall volume also. I turn them both up to max, but, at irregular intervals, it turns them down again.

    Any ideas?

    Yep, its a problem for lot's of us. Get Persist from the Play Store and it will fix the issue:

    I accidentally turn the volume down too. But the phone does not do it "on its own".

    The problem is that the power button is exactly opposite the volume down button, so sometimes I squeeze the phone and hold the volume button down. But otherwise I like the power button on the side instead of on the top.

    It seems to be working for most of us. Have you fine-tuned the settings? IMO, this is a great example of software overcoming a hardware SNAFU.
