    hey does anyone else have a problem with the ipod where the volume gets racked way up (or down, but that is not as shocking) randomly? i have a 5g ipod and whenever it is sitting near my razr v3x it mysteriously controls the volume itself. i was wondering whether there was a fix to it? though i am sure me jumping a mile out of my seat on my commute is fun for others to watch, i am not sure i want to go death yet... or have my sleep disturbed...

    Try setting the "hold" switch to on, to prevent this interference.

    Mine used to to this.

    I think its with the 'waves' coming out the mobile, they cause interfierence.

    Its the same as Mobiles about to receive a text message, or a call, will make a radio and some TVs make a 'chuh-chuh-chuh' noise. :p

    yeh i thought i was being stupid too with the no- hold/ button brushing against things thing... but unfortunately the mobile phone seems to be impervious to the hold mode...

    Phew.. at least it's not just mine. Nearly got deafened a few days back when a receieved a text message and the volume shot up to 100% :(

    Just need to remember to keep the mobile a little further away from now on :p
