Well, here's a test for anyone with a Galaxy Nexus (especially with that problem) that still owns his older Android phone:
Put your SIM card back into the old phone, configure it to GSM only, put the Nexus in Airplane mode (to disable everything, including emergency mode (I think)) then put the old phone with its ass close or next to the volume rocker of the Nexus. Maybe even overlap the phones, to have the antenna on top of it. GSM antennas are required to be at the bottom of the phone. Fiddle with the old phone to generate some radio traffic.
If you can manage to cause the volume drop that way, it's definitely RF.
--edit: I guess given that the wavelength of 900MHz is around 33cm, you don't need to be too exact with the placement, but right on top hammers the most power into it.
i can confirm the RF interference triggers the bug. here is the prove in a video of my GN interfere by a N1
Brand new out of box from o2 as of 6PM. No SIM in phone due to it being locked and me wanting to use a Vodafone SIM in it.
Gone through the setup wizard, held another phone (o2) near it, and down goes the volume.
I think I'll box it up before I get attached to it.
what the hell is samsung playing at!? improper rf shielding means any stray signal with the right power can cause your volume to suddenly drop..
Geez, when I saw the cpu and camera specs I thought samsung were being cheap, but skimping on the basic shielding of a radio transmitter? ...
