The volume rocker button on my original iPhone is stuck in the "up" position. For now that's not a problem as it means that the ringer is at full volume. There is also the minor irritation that the translucent ringer volume meter comes on a stays on some of the time. I have to sleep-wake cycle the phone to get rid of it. However, there will come a day soon when I'm using the iPhone as an iPod with earbuds, and it's going to be jammed on full, with no ability to lower the volume. I was hoping that my friendly, neighborhood genius could simply open the case and release the volume rocker. Unfortunately, they don't repair units in the store (or elsewhere), they just replace them. As mine is a Day #1 unit, it's out of warranty. So here's the dilemma. I really, really want to wait for a 32GB unit to come out before upgrading to a 3G phone. But I expect to be traveling quite a bit in the near future, where the iPod element of the phone is essential. I have an iPod classic, but that's no good for movies. So, I have to give up movies for now and carry both the iPhone and iPod for trips. Or upgrade to a 16 gig iPhone, and then wait 18 months before I can step up to 32 gigs, although they may be even bigger by then. Tough call.
