Volume down button not working at all
Since the 9700 forum SUCKS, and NO ONE answers any freaking questions, I'm sticking to the 8520 forums.
Bought the 9700 off a friend, he's leaving for the marines and won't need his phone anymore.
Excellent condition, not a scratch. Awesome.. accept the volume down button doesn't work at all. I use my phone for an mp3 player constantly so this a a rather HUGE annoyance for me.
Looks like I need some good ole' diegonei advice.
Help!Last name ever, first name greatest.

Have 8520, volume was stuck at 100% none the less. Did the take battery out and all that stuff. Nothing. Found this- Go to Menu-settings-options-screen/keyboard- scroll down to 'key tone' and turn it to 'on'. Now when you hit any key you will hear a tone. I turned music on so I could see the volume and sure enough I was able to lower the volume with the buttons. I went back to settings and turned key tone off and my volume buttons still work.

Thanks TBMasters! This worked for my Bold 9700. When reading this thread, I had zero confidence that this would work for me. I thought for sure my problem was hardware-related. My Decrease Volume button would work flawlessly, but my Increase button had suddenly all but stopped working completely. I figured I had nothing to lose by trying the procedure you mentioned, and it worked like a dream.

Scratch that, this only worked for me for about twelve hours. The problem is back. Unfortunately, reattempting this procedure no longer works for me. I am considering disassembling my phone to see if I can fix the button - it's got to be a hardware issue.
