Quickly changing volume on a password protected iPhone iOS devices
I am sometimes frustrated when all I want to do is turn my iPhone's volume up or down but have to first put my password in -- correctly -- to unlock the phone, because the ringer volume controls do not work unless the iPhone is unlocked. Well, fret no longer! I found a simple work around. Simply click 'Emergency Call' on the password screen and adjust the volume to your heart's content. Then with one click of the sleep button and the phone is turned off again.

This is great. Now I can turn other people's iPhones' volume up so everyone else gets annoyed at them.

On my iPhone 4, the volume controls on the phone and on the headset work with the passcode enabled and the phone locked. Is there a special trick to lock the volume control? (And what is point in locking the volume control?)

The volume works when it is locked and you have headphones on, yes. But not with nothing plugged into the headphone jack.
