Anyone else randomly see the speaker volume display on their iPhone 3G?!

Twice since I got the phone two days ago, I'll be using it to text or for an an app, and the speaker volume overlay screen thingy will pop up just for a second and disappear, as if you'd pushed the volume button while on a call. If I push it at that point, it shows me the RINGER volume display changing, so it's not me pushing anything while not on a call...

I find it a little weird....

Am I alone?

Happens to me once or twice a day, usually in the middle of Safari loading a page. I've reported it to Apple.

Never, not once unless I physically toggle the silent/ringer switch

Happened to me today whilst loading a page in safari. About 2 secs later it dumped me out to the home screen, and when I went back into safari, there was no record of the page I was browsing, so I figured it was a minor crash of sorts.

Volume Icon Randomly Displays In Safari!

Yes, I get that too! If I'm surfing Safari on my iPhone 3G sometimes the Volume Icon (with bars) with RANDOMLY come on screen. I am POSITIVE(!!) that I did NOT touch the physical volume controls; also, other proof is that the Volume Icon does NOT say 'ringer' on it, which is what it would say if I PUSHED the volume buttons. What the #$&$^??

When this occurs the iPhone is resetting to half-volume! This has been an infuriating bug since 2.0.

Happend to me on my iPod Touch (2.0) a few times. I was holding the iPod in my hand and doing some web browsing or so and all of a sudden the speaker volume display would show up.

Hasn't happend on my iPhone, so far.

So I get an even weirder issue - I'll turn on the phone with the top button and it'll seem like the ringer is stuck on louder so it's constantly showing up - I press the down button on the left but it continues to be going up all the way - the only way I fix it is restart the whole phone - then it goes away for a few days.

I'm taking it into the Genius Bar - hoping it'll get me a new phone

I've seen this!

Good to know I'm not crazy. I seriously thought I somehow fat-fingered the physical volume key when browsing in safari. Here's to hoping for a fix in 2.0.3.

Yep - it's happened to me a few times. Not had 2.0.2 long enough to know if it's fixed though.

Ill add the me too, to this thread. It has happened to me with all iterations of 2.x including 2.0.2. I was beginning to wonder if I had a defective 3g but it clearly sounds like a software glitch.
