    Hey. I'm dealing with an annoying behavior, and I'm not sure if it's by design, or if there's something wrong with my phone.

    When I plug in headphones... everything goes wonky. Specifically, the phone seems to take feedback from any pressure (usually accidental) I apply to the headphone cable. If I push it one way, it goes into voice command mode. If I push it another, it redials the last call I made. And other such along these lines. Why is it doing this? Is it by design, or is there something wrong with my device? How do I make it stop? Every time I jostle the phone while trying to listen to music, I have the phone annoying redialing my last call, going to voice mode, or otherwise interrupting what I'm doing.

    I got the feeling, from one of the apps I was playing with, that this may be something called "headset commands," but I haven't been able to find anything else about that.

    I had this same issue on my droid 1. It's because of a short or something loose in the headphone jack, I think. I got my phone replaced under warranty - I'd recommend odiing the same
