    Default

    I have M8 for three weeks now ( on T-mobile) and not a day goes by that i don't have a problem with ringtone volume decreasing itself and it's always a notch above silent. I tried everything, from resetting all apps to default settings, from resetting entire phone. I even went to T-mobile to diagnose if some of my apps are misbehaving but everything seems ok. 'Quiet ring on pick up' is off and still there is a problem. I also have htc one m7 also running on kitkat 4.4.2 and no problems there. Also i have 2 different phone cases, with or without them there is this problem. Is it the phone, or something else that i haven't tried??!

    Help please. I adore the phone and don't wanna return it if i don't have to.

    Thanks

    Are you using a stock ringtone? If not, there is probably a problem with the ringtone.

    I have had this problem too. Anyone figured something out? Due to this my alarm didn't go off this morning and made me late for a meeting. So mad.

    I had similar problems, until I downloaded Zedge. Now, my ringtones and notifications are so loud, they startle the hell out of me!

    I also have experienced this serious problem, and quite frequently. It has caused me to miss a number of important calls. Why can't the ring volume be locked in some easy way to insure that the ring volume does not change unless a couple of keys are pressed, maybe simultaneously, to unlock it?

    If I had known of this problem before l bought the HTC One M8, I would not have bought the phone. HTC should get a software update to solve this serious problem and/or post the solution prominently on its M8 "how to" website.

    Do you have your ringtone volume linked with the notifications as one volume control in settings? If so then do they both go down on their own? The reason I ask is because if they are linked they should both go down or up at the same time and at the same level. Whereas if they are separated like the default setting then only the ringtone should go down when you accidentally press the volume control button on the side of the phone while it is in your pocket. hint-hint

    I actually have the opposite problem. Mine seems to go up in volume instead of down. I mean so loud it hurts me ears. The volume seems erratic on mine anyway. Notifications come in loud or soft randomly without me changing anything. I don't really get why.
