1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    ok, I love my droid....but.... I think there is some area for improvement as far as a music player goes. quite alot actually. I bought my droid hoping to not have to switch to at&t to take my ipod to the next level. got tired of packing around a phone and an ipod.
    then the droid came out, I preordered and got one as soon as they came out...sweet! but I cant use it anymore as a music player after only a few months because the headphone jack is sooooo weak it crackles and pops and pauses my music all the time. I cant even slide it in my pocket without the thing crackling and pausing, so im back to my ipod.
    I have tried 4 different sets of earphones. its NOT the earphones!
    and....when I do use it as a music player and then need to make a call I get NO SOUND!! even when I unplug the headphones and reset the music player...a hassle in it self. so I have to shut the whole phone completly down and restart it! what a pain...every time I need to make...or get a call! somebody tell me there is hope on the way and im not the only one with this issue!! is there a patch?? a bug fix?? something???

    If it's your headphone jack and not headphones or any app on the phone, it might be a defective jack port.

    Possibly take it in? They might swap you out on warranty. Make sure if you're rooted though to go back to stock before you walk into a Verizon store.

    You could try calling their customer service first and see if they have had any other cases like this.

    Oh man I wish. I have the same complaints as you with the headphone jack. It sucks and it's getting worse. I'm unrooting and going into VZW tomorrow. I hope this doesn't become a massive problem with these phones.

    I've heard more and more of these problems with the headphone jack as time as gone on from people who purchased around release.

    From what I can gather, there is a problem with design, possibly bad parts.
