My GS3 will turn itself to mute without my knowledge and it's driving me crazy.

I really can't figure it out. I thought it was the Otterbox case but a friend who's running Android on another phone is having the same issue.

Known software bug? Did I scramble a setting somewhere?

That sounds really odd. My wife has an S3 and doesnt have that problem.

If your screen accidentally turns on in your pocket and you hit the volume down rocker against something, I could imagine that happening.

Ehh, that's a stretch for me especially since I'm not the only one I know experiencing the issue.

My old Droid X used to turn itself on randomly at night after I'd power it off completely. Sometimes it would just boot all on its own.

I thought it was haunted for a while, till the Googles told me it happened to some other people's phones too.
