I'm beginning to hate iPhones... WHY do I need to turn the ringer switch on to be able to hear sound? It's effing ridiculous! VOLUME should apply on everything, it shouldn't affect when I toggle the ringer/mute switch. For example the app Vine, when I'm playing a video I couldn't hear any effing sound even when volume is all the way up. The ringer/mute switch should ONLY apply to phone calls/messages. It's called "ringer" for a reason, and thats when the phone rings. I'm really pissed off... I have to always toggle that stupid switch... My new phone will be an android. Tired of this *****.

Apple doesn't care; you already bought their phone. HAHA.

everyone has an opinion

I hated that my galaxy s3 had 4 different volume bars

and like said it might be an app thing, I just test on safari youtube and you still get sound with silent switch on

C'mon OP, if that is what makes you switch to Android, you already know there's gonna be some small inconsequential thing about Android that will be blown out of proportion & drives you nuts too...

Go to the sound settings and turn off the option to adjust the ringer volume with the buttons. There you go. App volume can now be adjusted independently of the mute switch.

I think this is a per app situation, right?
I actually think this may be a per app basis issue, because sometimes I am actually able to put up the volume with the volume slider even on silent in some apps and web browser.

It is a per app issue.

On a side note, can we just turn this in a "posting memes to mock ridiculous outrage" thread?

Spelling SWITCH is even harder. :D:D
