hmm, it happened to me twice. manufacturer warranty covered it both times.
glad to hear you found an easier resolution.
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.
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.

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.
