On my Galaxy S2 Skyrocket, everytime I bump the volume rocker the phone comes out of silent mode. I hate this. The only way I want my phone going into or coming out of silent mode with a hard button is by holding the power until the modal shows up. Is there any way to prevent the volume rocker from knocking the sound back on when in silent mode?

Volume Locker did the trick, but other frustrations with Android pushed me onto WP8. – joelmdev Feb 7 '13 at 22:30
