    Headphone Jack and other issues...

    So, I finally made the switch from iPhone, and gave the Razr a whirl. It has had its ups and downs and I am considering taling it back (within the 30 days) and hopping back in line and get the iPhone.
    The issues I have been experiencing are as follows:

    1. Head phone jack creates poor connection. I have AKG Q460 headphones, with the long jack piece, and when the phone is in my pocket the sound will sometimes skip or turn off completely. It will take several attempts involving removing the headphones and playing/pausing the music until it plays again.

    2. Buttons on headphones dont work. I knew this would be the case but I downloaded the Headset Button Controller app to no avail. Are there any other options?


    Other issues not headphone related:

    3. Still getting poor battery life on absolute minimal usage. Have Juice Defender on aggressive and smart actions set-up. Getting about 12 hours.


    4. More of a UI issue I would think, but when typing (msgs or google) the word selection tool is very poor. If I miss out a word, trying to go back is a nightmare

    I mainly use my phone as a media device for listening to music to, at and from work. The headphone buttons not working is almost a deal breaker. I know you can get bluetooth pieces with the controls but this will just chew more power. Any help would be awesome, as im pretty keen to not have to go back and get the iPhone.

    this almost seems a razr bash post but i will try and fix your problem non the less.... are the headphones supported by the razr? my zagg ones are and they work awesome... ok second part did you try other headphones to see if you got a faulty device this dose happen you know? As far as the battery goes.... for god sakes if your running a dual core (ANY DUAL CORE CHEWS POWER TWICE AS FAST AS SINGLE EVEN THE 4S) so moderate music use will make you need a charge before bed i listen to music for atleast 2 hours a day up to about 5 i don't seem to have a problem at all i don't expect the thing to run with out a charge for a week as it isnt possible for any phone to do that... So maybe its a faulty device get that checked into... but the battery tends to lean towards faulty user thinking their *CELL PHONE* is a psp...

    Im sorry if i come off as a bit "bite your head off sh.... down your throat" its just ive been hearing alot of this faulty battery stuff saying it dosent last 10 hours..... it just gets a little annoying when im trying to figure out if they have a problem then bam they say "game" i just face roll to my desk... if it seems you have a legit problem you should contact Verizon as it is a expansive device you should expect good coming outa it

    my zagg ones work great with it idk why people are having trouble and its a new device so not alot of OLD headphones are going to work specially ones made for iphone lol.... the battery is ok just as good as any other dual core phone just massive game use will drain the battery quick

    I just got a razr last night,and my headphones arent working right either....while I agree its a new device,what does that have to do with it having a standard 3.5mm jack? That is an issue, IMO. BTW these same headphones I have trouble with in the Razr have went thru my OG droid,droid x, X2, ipod touch,iphone 4,ipod classic,my dell computer and Gtablet,my sons samsung phone,a xoom,a pantech phone....and all these devices had no problem running the headphones....So Id say its a valid issue,any 3.5mm headphone sholud fit any device with a 3.5mm jack provided the jack isnt obstructed by a large or intrusive protective case...I understand that certian brand specific functions such as a microphone or controls may not work,but the speakers should...

    The controls on the headphones I use are made specifically for iPhone, but I thought the idea witrh the Headset Controller app was to enable these buttons on an Android phone...
    As for the battery, I got about 15 hours yesterday, was playing a game solidly, music and minimal browsing. But thats with very aggressive settings on Smart Actions and JD. I was impressed at how much
    The main issue is the headphone jack, tried 3 sets of headphones and all were quite wobbly in the jack, and thus disconnected music and played only certain frequencies. Very annoying.

    Other than this, the phone is awesome. Love the blacks on the screen, and the UI is a nice fresh change from the iPhone. But unfortunately, as I mainly use it for music, I really need my headphone controls, and as my headphones are quite expensive, im in a pickle. Will go to Optus today (as im in Australia) and let them know the issue with the jack, if they say they will have to send it away to be checked, not sure what ill do, stick it out or get the 4S...

    Edit: Downloaded Droid Headset app and didnt work on my headphones. Checked conflicts, checked to see if app received anything and it didnt. So its either my phone or my headphones (more likely). Has anyone enabled the buttons on the iPhone headphones? Im guessing im having the same issue here. I have also tried Klipsch Control and Headset Button Controller and WinAmp, to no avail.

    What are the options with enabling iPhone headset controls on an Android? Anything other than Bluetooth? Different plug end to the headphones? Its the plug end with 3 black bands.

    Then you should contact Verizon if your have problems hearing stuff or it crackles ive heard that o.o some people seem to have a issue they hear a crack sound on their phone through headphones... id say have Verizon look into it its prolly a legit problem they are hoping to fix

    I did read somewhere that there was a crackling sound in the headphones, and the OP noted in a later post that when he disabled 4G, the crackling went away. I can not attest to this but it is possible the internal 4G radio is the cause of the interference.

    I read reviews on the app and they are decidedly good. There are a few which reported problems, but almost none that didn't at least get one of the buttons on their headset to do something productive. I didn't specifically see the RAZR mentioned - either in good or bad reports.

    I'll chime in on the battery life. 12 hours on a 4G device is bad? What were you expecting
