    Hi, I've got the same issue on my RAZR MAXX after only 3 days of using. It sounds so strange to me it could be lint as the phone is brand new. BTW I'd follow your suggestion but I don't understand exactly what a drill bit is. Can you explain me better?
    Sorry for my english.

    EDIT:
    Solved!!! Thanks a lot for you help.
    It was black at the bottom but, using a toothpick, I managed to remove the lint and now the earphone works again.
    I'll use a cap to avoid the same problem in the future.
    Thanks again

    Rob

    Glad it's fixed!

    A drill is a type of tool ( http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drill ) and a bit is a thin piece of metal that it uses to do its work.

    The cap is a good idea. Glad it's working now.

    Your English is pretty good!
    Just my curiosity, what are you going to use to cap the jack hole? I need to cap my one too and I don't want to use tape.
    Take Care

    Actually I don't know. A simple rubber cup should be too much easy to lose when you remove it to use the earphone... I'm wondering if it's not better to remove lint whenever it goes inside...

    I looked into the idea of a dust plug, but found them to be expensive and -imho- gaudy (like this). The only time I had this happen to me I vaguely remember, just prior, feeling like I had to exert more pressure than usual to insert my headphone jack. Hindsight I realize there was something in the way and I should have immediately stopped. I also am more careful about not putting it into a pocket that might have something like a kleenex or other lint producing material in it.

    Since I've only had it once in about 8 months, and have a pretty good understanding of how I contributed to that situation, I've decided to not bother with a plug that I then have to manage whenever I want to use the headphones.

    But SallyC, it looks like bling! It must be worth $11, lol! Fwiw, someone (I think 94lt1) said the otterbox cases have a rubber cover over the headphone jack.

    Yes, I have an Otterbox Commuter in a drawer somewhere and it does have a flap that covers the ports. Nice thing about that is that it just moves out of the way when you need to plug something in and you don't have to worry about losing it. But I haven't been using any sort of protection for a while now - knock on wood.

    Thanks so much for your help and ideas! You were right, greeky510, it was a piece of lint or something! My husband took an extremely fine drill bit (hand held, not in a drill ) and twirled it gently to get it out. It just sort of wrapped around it I guess. What a relief!

    Just had the same problem with my Droid, googled it and came across this forum. Took the recommendations and sure enough had some paper inside the jack, fished it out with a paperclip and it works now.

    Thanks guys for all your help here too.
