Default [App]Volume Control Plus: Lock Volume Buttons

Do you accidentally turn your volume down without realising? Myself and a few other people I know, are always missing calls because the volume can be turned down with a slight touch to the volume button. Even my phone pressing against my jeans in my pocket would turn the volume down.

But, I came across an app called Volume Control + which allows you to lock the volume at any level, and provides you with a widget to easily access and change all sound settings.

Volume Control + is free from the market!

well, i installed the app anyway, and i see that it has ads. i'm not complaining about the ads themselves, but your app description should at least mention it.

love the UI in this app. very attractive. however, it doesn't work on my rooted captivate running 2.2. i've tried the alternative lock method too. i also don't get the locked/unlocked notification, even though i have it enabled in the settings.

would you like a logcat?

I just tried it and had it showed up in the status bar. When I was checking my voice mail, as soon as I opened it to change the volume, my voice mail stopped. Is there a way to make it so that I can change the volume while listening to my voice mail?
