    This happened a few days ago, its a iphone 3G running 3.1.3 jailbreaked (2 months ago).
    The ringer goes up by itself to maximum volume! randomly a few times a day.. Also, the "Slide to turn off" menu appears without me pressing the power button (if im playing a game or scrolling trough the menu it pops out of nowhere).

    I tried a restore but it keeps happening..:mad:

    Anyone experienced this?

    Sounds like a hardware issue.
    You got any liquid damage on your iphone? Check the sensors.

    nope no liquids on in... how do i check the sensors?

    thanks!

    edit: checked both headphone jack and lower dock connector port and none of them were red as it should be if water was in it ...

    Replace the wiring loom including switch assembly and all should be fine.

    actualluy i think its from when the phone rubs in your pocket, the static will mess with the volume and the magnetic sensors in the iphone
