    Happy Friday!

    So, the strangest thing... the volume icon keeps popping up randomly on my screen. It's like for some reason whenever it's in standby/sleep mode and I wake it, it pops up... but then this morning it would just randomly pop up on the screen. Right now my phone is on silent and I'm not hitting any of the side buttons... and when it appears, it's just the bell, no bars on the bottom showing (like volume bars)... just the bell...

    anyone else had this issue?

    Have you done a hard restart on the phone? Might just be a random glitch...

    Funny you mention that... as soon as I posted, I thought "I should do a reboot" ... lol! So I did... so far nothing, but yesterday it was just happening randomly, so we'll see the rest of the day if it happens again.

    Thanks for your suggestion!

    Do you have a case on the device? If so, remove it and a few hours and see if it still happens...

    Nope, no case or anything on it. I just got a new replacement and this doesn't have anything on it. It's naked, lol

    Is this effecting the actual volume at all or is it just visual? I had a similar issue with the 4S where it would randomly turn the volume down at random times. Safe to say it was not a software issue and they gave me a new phone.

    I think just visual... i havent noticed any issues with the actual sounds... I'll keep an eye and ear out though... since this is a brand new replacement as of yesterday.

    Thanks!

    When you got the replacement, did you restore the phone from a backup? I hate to say this, but,
    you might want to try a full restore, brand new. Maybe, just maybe, the backup has something
    corrupt in the file system. It's a possibility. Doesn't hurt to try restoring as new. You can always
    just restore to the backup again.

    There's an internal hardware issue with those volume buttons then.

    Yeah... time to get another replacement

    I have now been able to get the phone to vibrate by pressing in certain areas of the phone.. so apparently something must be loose. Sad... hopefully the third time's the charm!! Cross your fingers!!!

    I have my 5s model that is doing the same, and the reason for my phone is the Otter Box, as the buttons on the side of the case push for some reason, perhaps the integrity of the case is damaged.

    Have you tried a hard reset?
    7 Reset
    Hold the power/wake button and the volume down button at the same time until the Apple logo appears. Then release.
    All others:
    Hold the top or side power/sleep button and the home button at the same time until the Apple logo appears, then release.

    If that doesn't stop it, try Reset All Settings.
    Reset All Settings
    Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.
