Got it this afternoon... Noticed that the volume keeps turning full down to mute with no input from me...

Faulty phone or a software issue? Anyone else seen this?

You're not alone. There's a few people begin to report they have the SAV-Ghost issue (self-adjusting volume) in this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1352545

Surely it should be either self-adjusting-volume or volume-adjusting-ghost? It can't be SAV-ghost because if it's a ghost adjusting the volume then it's not self adjusting!

It's a ghost he can convince the phone to adjust the volume by itself. Come on everybody knows that.

Questions regarding this issue:

Does it only decrease volume?
Can you reproduce it?
how often does it occur?
Any apps you have installed that might interfere with volume in any way?

maybe this was the reason for all the delays, sounds like a software problem especially if they released the phone, can't be hardware if they knew of this issue

Well too early to say I would need some info to narrow it down.. I don't think it is sw at the moment. I twittered some other experienced users and they're have not seen such on their device. So could be user app related (market apps) or hw batch issue.

As far as I can remember this was occurring when the phone was vanilla. Only ever adjustable down. Have fought it several times with up volume but it is like the down volume key is locked on. However, down volume key appears fine so I don't think this is mechanical.
