Key click sound changes volume?
Hey everyone just got my first iPhone, weird issue though. When I type it obvously makes the audio clicking sounds which I like, but a lot of times the volume is different. I'll be typing a message and the click will be faint and not noticeable then other times its much louder. It even changes during a sentice, might start out quiet then gets louder. Is there a reason for this or is something wrong here? It's not a huge deal I just can't figure out why it does it. I thought maybe the speed I type or the pressure did it but nothing seems to change it. All my other audio is fine!

Key Click sound changes volume
I have experienced the same issue and have taken my new 3gs to the "genius" at my local Apple store and showed them and they have replace the phone and reset it twice and each time the issue goes away for a little while but always comes back. I am not sure what to do or where to go with it.
All I can say is that if you are experiencing this, or any other issue, you need to report it. If you are experiencing this issue and you do not report it, it will never be corrected. Always remember old saying, "The squeeky wheel always gets greased." If Apple does not know that it is broke because you are not reporting the issue, then they cannot correct the issue.

I have the same problem..
Any1 found solution to this?
My only stupid workaround is to have autocorrection voice enabled.. so then when the click volume is low i type something like "applr" and the voice says "apple" loudly and the click volume is back.. very stupid but something to show it is a software problem..

I have an iPhone 4 and have a similar problem
The system volume suddenly
Becomes almost muted.
I found (dumb luck) that switching
To the iPod briefly and hitting play
Always seems to restore it. I'll likely
Get it checked as I use the
Phone as my alarm and it happens

I have noticed a slight audio boost to the key click when another sound is playing. When I notice it is when I am involved in an SMS conversation. As the sound plays when it sends an SMS or MMS. and I am typing at the same time, the key click is louder.
The whole covering the speaker thing is a valid point. When I used the bumper. If that tiny speaker hole was covered in the slightest, it would almost mute the audio. I don't have that issue with my incase slider.

If I'm typing a message with the keyboard, the click sound that occurs when I tap a key does not have a consistent volume.
Let's say I set the volume to 5 bars: Sometimes it sounds like 5, sometimes it sounds like 2.
Not a big deal, just odd.

This issue cropped up when either iOS 3.0 or 3.1 was released...key click volume was reduced except when either, the email sounds, sms tone sounds, ringtone plays, or when listening to music in the iPod app. I see the same issue with my iPad as well.
