Hi, I have started to notice over the last few weeks that my ringtone volume somehow goes to its lowest setting automatically whenever it decides to. I haven't yet noticed if this happens after a trigger I.e connect to Bluetooth or after a call etc. 

This is getting annoying now as I am missing calls due to not hearing the ringtone. 

Has anybody got any solutions to this? 

Thanks in advance

Could be worth checking if you have it in a case that it is not pressing down on volume down by itself or with slight pressure as if not using phone at time will lower ring tone as initial audio source. Or check not got anything else in pocket that is pressing on it reducing it other check is playing a video turn vol up and remove finger and see if vol auto lowers ie button jammed in on vol down.

Cheers dave, I'm quite certain it isnt the case that's causing this. When I checked on members firstly, there was another post that sounded similar the issue I'm having.
Seems very strange but annoying

Im having the same issue with my s20, sometimes the ringtone volume is on max, and other times it is on the lowest level and I can barely hear it and constantly miss phone calls because of it. 

 

Did you find anything that solved it for you?

Hi max, mine was doing the same as yours, I haven't noticed it happen for a while now so it may have been a bug, I'm not too sure! Sorry I can't be of any help!!

Mine does the same, but only if connected to the Bluetooth in my truck: doesn't happen at any other time. It rings once or twice, then the phone's ringtone volume reduces to zero. The vehicle rings fine, but it means that every time I take the phone out of the truck, I have to turn the ring volume back up. Missed two important calls today because I forgot to do this last night...

I'm experiencing the exact same problem on my SO's Galaxy S22, but not on my S20 FE. Our car is a Toyota if that means anything.

I saw this post while trying to solve this problem on my own phone (Galaxy S23).

In my case, it turned out to be gesture controls.

Under Settings->Advanced Features->Motions and gestures, there is "Mute with gestures".

Having this enabled made my phone go silent if it was in my pocket while I was moving, so I had to disable it.
