    :update: Different headphone jack issue

    I have searched the boards for my particular issue and haven't found any results. This is my third droid, my first one had the loose connection/crackling problem, my 2nd one was fine in regards to the headphone jack but had some other issues, and I just received my third droid today.

    The problem i'm having is when i plug in headphones, they don't click and stay in there. If i barely pull on the cord when the headphones are plugged in, they come right out. Some headphones do stay in, but a few others i have and the auxiliary cord i use in my car 90% of the time don't, and i made sure to check that the auxiliary cord works on my other 2 droids and it does.

    Anyone else have this issue or any way to fix it? Or am i just going to have to go on number 4. :/

    update- So i went in and relayed my problem with them and they said since their verizon headphones plugged into it that it's not considered defective, that they don't support 3rd party products, even though my auxiliary cords fit snugly in my other 2 droids, but to them that doesn't matter. I took my chances on a 4th phone but they said if it doesn't work with that one then they wont send me anymore.

    i have this issue with one of my headphones but i gladly switched to the motorokr s9 headset and i love it.
    but also with mine, sometimes when you move the jack from side to side, it plays only on one side of the headphones

    Well most of my actual headphones work with it with the exception of my nice studio headphones, but the main issue is that the auxiliary cord i use in my car doesn't stay connected in it, and i use it in my car 95% of the time. I don't understand what would cause some headphone plugs to snap in and some not to.

    that is an issue with the droid, you may be able to hound vzw about that to get a d2 or a d inc.

    I was wondering about that pilotcharles, can they give me a different phone like the Droid 2 considering i've had 2 replacements of the droid 1 so far?

    I am sure if you keep banging and complaining they have to give you a device that is similar. You might not get the droid x, but I think you may can get an inc. Not promising you anything since I dont work for vzw.

    I agree searayman, this is a definite annoyance. Other than having the physical keyboard compared to the other droids, I got the moto droid because it came with the 16gb SD card so I could give my girlfriend's Ipod back that I've been borrowing for months and not being able to use the damn thing for what i really want it for is annoying.

    I just received my fourth droid today, and aside from 2 of the soft keys being purple, everything else works. Those purple LED's are annoying but I'm just glad the damn thing works.
