Verizon M8 here - and as such I have to be different. For me it's my Notification volume that maxes out when I answer a call. I turned the requisite settings off but as others have noticed, that had no effect. Simply receiving doesn't do it - it's only when I answer it hits.

Rooted, S-off & very puzzled.

Just wanted to add my 3 day old M8 does this also, even with quite ring on pick up, and pocket mode unchecked, flip to mute check to mute once.

any one else have this issue?
Hi, do you find some issue for that problem? Because I bought M8 6 days ago and I have same problem with that.

We need resolve this because I am going be crazy for this phone.

Default same

i have the M7 and i got that problem too ...i observed that it;s lower the ringtone volume only when i'm using the phone for something(internet,game,fb) and i get a call....when idle and the screen is locked, it doesn't happent....i get this problem with SamsungS3 too, so i guess its an android issue , or an issue of the branding of the carrier ...for me it came out only after updating to sense6.even if i am walking, my phone ring once and then silcence , or autoanswer....unchecked all ,checked again, try everything, nothing worked since now...

Thumbs up Contacted HTC now it's fix

I contacted HTC about the ringtone going down after every call. They asked me if it was after the software update . It was after that. This is what he had me do:

hold in the Volume Down key and the power key at the same time for a few seconds. Continue holding the Volume Down until you get to an "HBOOT" screen with 3 android guys at the bottom. Once in there, use the volume keys to go down to "Recovery" option, then press the power button once to select it.

You'll be taken to a screen with a picture of a phone with a "!" icon and a red triangle. Once there please hold the Volume Up key and press the Power key once for just a second, then let go, you will see another menu, go down (using the Volume Keys again) to "Wipe Cache Partition" option and press once the power key to select it. Once it's complete, choose the option to "Reboot System Now" and the phone will start back up. The Cache Wipe is complete.

It worked for me.
Hope it helps
