    Default Changing volume without unlocking

    I'm in a situation where I'm required to password protect my phone. How can I change the ringtone volume without having to enter my password.

    With my two previous phones (both HTCs) I would just have to turn the screen on and press the volume down button. Unfortunately on the G2 this action opens the camera.

    Why do I want this? Was walking into church on Sunday and forgot to turn my ringer off. Whipped out my phone, turned the screen on and stared at it wondering how in the heck do I do this.

    The worst part was there I was trying to type my password fast to get this done and I entered it in wrong 5 times. Everyone staring wondering why I'm playing on my phone. Ugh.

    While I don't have the answer to your question, as a temporary measure, you might enable "Flip phone to silence incoming calls" under Settings -> Gestures. At least this way, when the phone rings, you can hold it face-down (after you take it out of your pocket), and after the noise stops, THEN change your sound settings to Vibrate or Silent without rushing.

    Have you tried the drop-down menu? That's what I do, but I don't use a lock on my lock screen so I don't know if that'll work for you.

    When you enable a lockscreen, the only thing you can do is enter your password, make an emergency call, open the camera (volume down), and QuickMemo (volume up).

    It would be nice if you could reassign the volume rocker on lockscreen.

    Long pressing volume down opens the camera. Short pressing when you get a call will mute the ring tone.
