    When I play games like Air Hockey, Crash, etc.. how do I lower the volume when playing without headphones on?? Its so loud and disturbs others. I tried using the volume button on the side of my iPhone but it lowers the ringer only. I tried to flip the switch to silence it, but that doesn't work on the games either.

    double tap home screen and the music player popup comes on, try lowering the volume there and then hit close.

    When I double-tap the home button it takes me out of the game completely.

    You want to go to Settings > General > Home Button and make sure you have iPod selected so when you do double tap the home key, it will bring up the iPod controls w/o exiting your game.

    Cork, Ireland.

    For me, the volume rocker switch only changes the ringer volume for a few seconds until the game has fully launched, after that the switch changes only the game volume.

    A bit confusing, but it's handy that I can change the game volume without affecting the ringer.

    That's weird your button doesn't work, mine does. As does the silent switch, completely mutes the audio in games.

    The silent switch only works in games that are programmed to pay attention to it. The volume rocker, on the other hand, works in all games, you just have to make sure you wait until the game is fully loaded. Oh, and some games have an internal volume menu, look for that.

    The volume buttons on the iPhone can adjust game volume. This only works in games that are playing sound (so for Tetris, you'd adjust at the logo animation).

    But most games can adjust in their settings.
