Am I the only one that gets frustrated by ios's 3 different volume levels. Ringer volume, video volume and headphone volume what the diggins. Why can't there just be one, is there any way around this?
While im at it
It sucks you cant delete the crappy stock apps
Auto correct sucks why cant it just be suggestive spell check

It is suggestive spell check - tap on the word it suggests as you are typing to override

Drag the stock apps you don't want to folder so they are hidden from view.

I just put the stock apps on the last page on their own, it's only a couple so no big deal IMO. as for the ring tones I like the different volumes. It ensures when changing use the volume is correct, or at least reasonably where you left it. For example nothing worse than getting your ear drums blasted out after the volume was left on full after using the speaker.

I find the 3 different volumes extremely useful.

I always want my ringer loud, but when playing on an app i'd prefer that to be quieter, then when my headphones are in I have a very different requirement.

Since moving to my iphone5 it is one of the few things I do like about it as I don't recall this being the case on my Iphone4

I have the volume set to max for the aux in my car then I watch a youtube video with headphones at night and get blasted with max volume. Or I have the ringer turned down or the phone on silent then play a video for it to play at full volume

qwerty7: I have the volume set to max for the aux in my car then I watch a youtube video with headphones at night and get blasted with max volume.

I don't have that issue with my 4S; it detects my car as a different device from my headphones and therefore has independent volume levels. Are you using Apple or third-party headphones?

WinPhone has one volume setting, and personally I preferred the multiple volume options from my iPod. Especially separate ringer & speaker volumes. Still like my Winphone better than an iPhone overall though.

sometimes I use the apple headphones, sometimes my philips. The car is just aux into factory stereo. I have a 3gs, maybe that is why

Have you tried to have your "ringer and alerts" option set to not change with [volume] buttons?
Then media volumes should be independent to ringer volume.

Cheers,
