    On my iPad2 (non 3G), connected to wifi, the ringer icon will intermittently appear, hang around for a few seconds, and then fade out. Sometimes it does this several times a minute. I am severely hearing impaired so have the sound OFF, volume turned down, mute button on.

    So what's going on? Anybody got any ideas?

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean by the 'ringer icon'. Does this appear in the middle of the screen or in the menu bar at the top of the screen? It sounds like a 'notification'. If you go to 'Settings', 'Notifications' - what notifications have you got enabled? See if it's one of those that's causing this. Turn them off one-by-one until you discover the culprit!!

    Thanks for the response, Tim. Yes, it is the notification visual alert that appears in the center of the screen. (I've always been terrible about proper nomenclature.) But I have notifications turned off. So the mystery continues.

    No problems for a while and then recurring today, with a vengeance. The notification is the speaker with the volume indications below it. No volume is indicated since I have turned it down/off. Notifications are also off. But there the thing is, in the center of the screen, refusing to go away.

    ???

    (Today I paired the iPad for the first time with the Apple Bluetooth keyboard. Don;t know if there could be a connection there. Just saying...)

    AHA! I just figured it out. (Today's problem anyway.) I have the iPad on a stand and it was sitting on the volume rocker. DUH!

    Thanks! Makes me feel a little less foolish. (But only a little.)
