My iphone volume button is very sensitive. It turns on by itself all the time, and the volume always stays at its maximum refusing to be adjusted.

I was so annoyed by it and even thought of buying another iPhone to replace my 4s. However, I eventually find this video and it solves my problem.

After watching this video, I went to Sim Lim Square (6th floor’s indian shop), and paid 18 dollars for a set of tools that can open my iPhone’s case; placed two pieces of paper between the volume button and their connectors and the problem goes away!

How to fix your iPhone 4s’ volume button!

I really like to thank the person who posted it.
