    So maybe I'm crazy, but seems like after my recent update my phone is a little different.

    1. After this update, I had to re-enter all my visual voicemail passwords on 2 iPhone4 models and 1 3GS model. Don't remember doing this with previous updates. Has this happened to anyone else?

    2. When I call someone, the 1st or 2nd ring, in the ear piece, ring fairly loud but then subsequent rings return to normal volume levels.

    Anyone else have these issues?

    I've seen the first issue with several updates - I have not noticed the 2nd issue.

    Yes, I have had this happen after every major update on iPhone classic and iPhone 3GS.

    2. When I call someone, the 1st or 2nd ring, in the ear piece, ring fairly loud but then subsequent rings return to normal volume levels.

    Nope.

    Anyone else have these issues?

    Interesting, I don't remember needing to re-input my visual voicemail password before...of course, I have slept since then and drink heavily at times!

    The ringer thing is however a mystery. When I call someone, and place the phone to my ear, the 1st and sometimes 2nd ring will be loud (not overly loud, just louder than normal), then subsequent rings return to normal levels. It's almost as if the sound level is tied with the proximity sensor and takes a second to realize the phone is close to my face and now must tone it down.

    Weird nobody else is having this issue.

    1 - Had to do this a few days ago. Not sure what caused it but it's not a big deal. Just enter my pin and I'm done.

    2 - I want to say that volume thing for the first ring has always been like that. Maybe it started with the 3GS? I am not sure. However, I know exactly what you're talking about. The first ring (more noticeable on speakerphone) sounds like crap. It's loud and crackly. After that first ring, it goes down in volume and sounds much better/normal. Don't know what it is. Perhaps it's the location (signal) of the phone? Unknown. Rest assured you're not the only one. :)

    1. Yes, I had to re-enter my password after this update.
    2. The ringer sounds fine on my iPhone, the same it was before 4.2.1, no volume changes.:)

    When you say your first ring is louder, do you mean it sounds like your phone is on speaker and your holding it up to your ear and then it goes back to normal sound? Because I've had that problem for as long as I could remember. I had it on my 3G and I just learned to deal with it. I just thought it was AT&T's shotty network. To be honest, I have never heard of anyone else with this issue, I thought I was the only one.
