volume levels

Hi, just wondering if anyone has come across this. I need to keep my phone on vibrate at work, but if I try to show someone a video or anything with sound the volume for media stays greyed out when trying to increase it. Even going into settings - sounds - volumes has it greyed out. The only way to get it accessible is to turn the phone off and on, which is a pain. Any idea? Turning the sound to silent then back to on does nothing either...

Re: volume levels

That doesn't seem right as the notification sound is not the same as music/video/games/other media volume.

Re: volume levels

Hi, thanks for the reply. Sorry, I maybe wasn't exact, it was late when I made the post. The notification volumes and ringtone volumes are fine, it's just the media volume that stays greyed out. Reseting the phone brings it back for a while until I've had it on silent/vibrate for a bit again then it freezes out. Resetting to safeword would just act like a reset. I'll try it for a while... See what happens...

That's quite odd, what if you re-install the latest update with PCC
