    I have a question for everyone that has an iPhone 4.

    If you're walking a lot like at work, jogging or something and you have your phone on vibrate and then go to check your phone for missed calls or messages and find that it's not on vibrate anymore?

    While I'm at work I'll check my phone every now and then and I find that the phone switched out of vibrate mode to the ringer... I had to change it back probably around 5 times today.

    Weird thing is the switch isn't loose at all... I'm just wondering if this is happening to anyone else...

    Thanks

    The distance the switch moves seems to be a lot less than the previous iPhone. I suspect that alone is enough to make it easier for the switch to accidentally get knocked in your pocket.

    No, mine doesn't move at all. It's a lot more studier than the 3GS's.

    Apple's response: get a bumper

    Seriously, it's nearly impossible to flip the switch with a bumper on, even on purpose.

    I had a lot of trouble the vibrate switch on my 3G. I don't seem to have the same problem with the 4. I do have a bumper, but I keep checking the switch since it's a two-year old habit for me
