This isn't the first problem I've had with it, the lock button stopped working a while back. I figured that it was just dirt stuck inside that I couldn't get out. I use the assist-touch thing to lock it now and despite being a bit annoying, it does its job.
Anyway, every night I put in my headphones and listen to music to get to sleep. Every morning I unplug them and there's usually no trouble. Today, however, when I woke up and unplugged them, I forgot to shut off the music first and instead of the music stopping like it normally would when I unplug the headphones, it kept playing (but I couldn't hear it, it just said it was playing). When I paused it, I tried to turn the volume up but it isn't working. The little box that says 'ringer' comes up but there is no volume bar on the bottom.
- I tried plugging headphones in and taking them out again but it didn't work.
- I know that the speakers didn't blow out because I went into ringtones and played one and I could hear that.
- I can't turn it off because, like I said, the lock button doesn't work. The only way to turn it off with a way to turn it back on is to let it die on it's own and then plug it in.
- About a day ago the little bar at the top of the screen (with the internet connection, time, charge status, ect.) stopped showing up when I'm in Safari. I don't know why or what happened and it's there every other time but for some reason not when I'm in Safari.
If you know what's going on or can think of something I should try, please answer. I'm leaving for a trip in about 6 hours and if at all possible, I'd like to have it fixed before that happens.
