    Hey guys. I have been a registered developer for the iPhone for a couple months now, and installed the beta of 3.0 (after much deliberation) on Thursday. It's actually rather stable, but one thing that's been happening (and I have yet to find anyone else having this problem) is that the phone stops making any system sounds (i.e. text sound, mail sound, music, unlocking and locking, sounds in apps). The only way I can seem to fix it is to power the phone off and on. This has happened about 6 times in the last 2 and a half days. Anyone else here experience this? Also, I never had such a problem with 2.0 so I know it's not a hardware problem.

    Thanks, and I hope this doesn't violate the non-disclosure agreement!!!

    I don't think it will change the color of the NDA, but it may violate it.

    it happens if you open the new voice memo app and then close it.

    Thanks. I guess I didn't realize I opened the voice notes app that many times.

    I've had this happen to me once but wasn't sure what caused it. I've only used the voice memo app once since it happened and I haven't encountered it again, so that does seem very likely the cause, since that app always changes my volume setting when it loads up.

    It can happen without opening the voice notes apps as well. I haven't opened the voice notes app, and my sound goes out two or three times a day.

    has happened to two of my phones running 3.0 as well, also has anyone else just had the volume randomly adjust to halfway? like you can be in the call log and it could change the ringer volume from full to half, of i can be in the ipod app scrolling thru songs (with no music playing) and the volume indicator (not ringer volume) comes up and displays half strength

    This seems to be a common bug.
    i'm pretty sure apple goofed up the audio stack.
    try disabling lock sounds and keypad clicks. yeah, it's a pain but at least your ringer will work.

    Yep, except mine goes down to 2 bars, not half. And as far as the sound going out, this is happening to me without opening the voice memo. Also, watch out as the alarm doesn't sound either when the sound goes off, I've missed work once already!

    I get the same problem every so often, can't really figure out the root cause. Please do report it to Apple Bug Reporter, the more people report the issue the better the chances of it getting noticed by apple and getting fixed. 3.0 is Beta after all, and they need as much feedback and bug reports as possible to clean up the OS.

    My sound comes and goes. Rebooting will make the sound come back but after some time it will go away. It has seemed to stop happening as often anymore though.

    Just an update. I received a text message, heard the alert, unlocked my iPhone, and the sound was gone. The slider sound didn't happen and then nothing else did.

    It's probably just a coincidence, but ever since I updated the AT&T ipcc file a couple days ago, I haven't had the audio cut out once ...
