    My iPhone does not go silent anymore since update 1.1.1. Why is that? I keep pushing down on the volume button and it stays at one white dot. Anyone know why?

    Am I the only one this is happening to?

    my volume indicator shows that the volume will go all the way down (with no white dots showing) and i updated to 1.1.1. not sure why it's happening for you. have you tried rebooting? if that doesn't work, maybe a restore? then, probably a trip to an apple store is in order...

    out of curiosity, why don't you just use the silent toggle switch on the side to accomplish the same thing without needing to look at the screen?

    my ringer volume bottoms out at 1 white square or dot.

    Speaker volume goes down completely with no white dots showing.

    If you want the phone to be silent why not use the switch?

    I do use the switch, but sometimes I forget to turn off an alarm and it goes off. Thats when the switch is on silent but the volume isn't all the way down because it stays at one dot.

    My phone does this too. If you go to settings, then sounds, move the volume slider and then hit the home key, you can volume down to zero. (most of the time) If you volume up after that however, you must repeat the process. I find 1.1.1 to be buggy. Maybe it's just my phone though.

    Volume toggle won't go to silent

    I'm having the same problem. I can't go below the one dot on the volume slider. Is there a solution? I have an iphone 3Gs
