    I just turned mine on for the first time. Usually I have my volume ringer set in the middle at work. I'm just afraid my switch will fall off!

    Fall off? I don't think you need to worry. I don't yet have an iPhone 4 but I've been using the switch often on my 3G for over two years and it hasn't gone anywhere.

    My phone is vibrate via the switch 95% of the time. I rarely turn my ringer on.

    I toggle mine a dozen times a day (3GS), and have for a year. No issues with it. I had my iPhone 1 for 2 years; never had trouble with its, either.

    I use mine once or twice a day. I wouldn't worry about it falling off, OP.

    I always use it when in public. At the movies especially, I leave it on vibrate. If I go to a Broadway show, I turn the phone completely off. One of my nightmares is to think the phone is on vibrate and have it go off during a live show.

    I have my ringer set to 1 at work. So as low as it will go without being turned off.

    I only use vibrate when I go to the cinema etc.

    I use it at least half a dozen times a day. Never a problem. I think the original iPhone had a problem with the switch and was falling off quite a bit. :(

    My 3G ringer switch fell off, but the iPhone 4 switch seem MUCH sturdier.

    I use mine a ton. In and out of class everyday, sitting down for dinner, etc. If it were to fall off, it would have already.

    Occasionally. Most of the time I have the ringer on just changing its volume when necessary - love my ringtones!

    Why would it fall off? :confused:

    I rarely use the ringer, only if my phone is in the next room and I'm waiting for a call (like from the mechanic or something). Otherwise it is always on vibrate.

    Quite often, that way, if the phone is in my pocket, I feel it ringing.
