    My switch for my ringer/vibrate is real touchy and has a mind of it's own. When I put it to vibrate it will do it's regular thing with the bell with line thorugh it showing, one vibrate and it's done. Then if the button feels a light breeze it will do that again, and again, and again. Then at times it will continue to switch back and forth (button never moves) from vibrate to ring and keep buzzing everytime the phone moves. At times when I have it on the charger it will just light up and switch back and forth on it's own. Any suggestions? Is this enough of an issue for apple to give me a new phone on the spot in the apple store? I have been dreading taking it in because I do not want a phone that has been taken apart to fix. I am weird like that and don't like knowing something was taken apart and fixed at one point.

    Sounds like you have a loose ringer on/off switch that won't stay in one position. Take it back to Apple to get it fixed.

    Taking things apart doesn't make them any less usable. Your iPhone started as a bunch of parts assembled in a factory.

    Well if the Genius there sees the problem first hand he/she would generally just swap it with a new one.

    I have a first generation iPhone and my does the same thing. When my Dad had this one it did not do that. Do you think it is 2.1? By the way it WAS unlocked and jailbroken do you think that has something to do with it?:apple:
