    Hey, this is a lumia 720 owner. I actually am having a problem with my device. If i set volume to 30/30. and keep it unused for some time with screen off, Then after some time it will drop to some lower level ( automatically ). it will get to 3/30, & then i'll have to again increase it. this all happens in ring+vibrate mode, i have not tried any other mode. can some one help me out with this. i have installed updates too. :/ still don't know what is happening.

    That very strange try a soft reset if it does the same thing, then I would get a replacement model or go to Nokia Care.

    This can happen if you keep your phone in your pocket where the buttons can be pressed accidentally. While the screen is off the volume buttons are locked. But unfortunately the volume buttons become active when the screen lights up after the power button is pressed, even though the phone is not unlocked. So in your pocket if something presses against the right side of the screen it can press on the power button (activating the screen) and then the volumes controls (changing the volume).

    Actually, you can manipulate the volume controls even without turning on the screen.
    So, there's that.

    I don't see that behaviour. When my screen is off, pressing the volume controls does not change the volume. It only happens for me when the lock screen is displayed.

    I have a slightly different problem with my Lumia 920.

    If the phone is in 'vibrate' mode and I'm listening to music on earphones, I can't hear a call alarm and can't see it cuz the device is in my pocket. Which means I miss a call. Has anybody come across such issue?

    You have started a new thread for your issue. There is no need to cross post in this thread as well. Do one or the other, not both. You have been given some things to try in the thread you started about this issue.
