    after i hook the phone up to my car stereo via the aux jack i can't hear while trying to use the phone normally... if i try to unplug the phone while its ringing to answer it i wont hear anything unless i use the speakerphone or a Bluetooth device, anyone else having this problem and if you have had this problem how did you fix it?

    ask for clarification, its hard for me to describe the issue but i did the best i can for now.

    I get that same problem with any three post headphone jack removal... including headphones that don't have a microphone... but with a stereo headset with mic the plug is four post and this problem does not occur.... weird

    Here's what I do to solve but it still ain't right... it works every time though

    Unplug three times... that's it

    Pull it out..put it in..pull it out..put it in..pull it out.......baammm... works every time

    i'll give it a shot, that would be very odd if indeed it has to do with the amount of posts on the jack, ithanks

    Did I just get post of the day?? I'm honored

    This is the stupidest answer I've ever posted on a forum but I had to say it because it's gotten me out of trouble many times when I HAVE TO answer that call and I don't wanna do it on speakerphone... I don't want to pretend like I "figured this out" myself... it just happened and it worked... and I don't know why. Then I told a couple buddies and they confirmed it does the trick

    What were looking for now is a four post line out to rca jacks or four post line out to three post line in that doesn't ground out the mic contact and see if THAT solves the problem...

    Anybody???

    lol, pulling the jack out 3x works about 35% of the time and at that point i dont think that is whats fixing it lol. i think its more or less the problem doesnt arise at that point. i dont want to reboot everytime i want to talk on the phone after pulling it from my car, but great fix :/.
