Hi, I had alot of luck the last time I posted a question on this site and im hoping for the same tonight.
My daughter just "has" to have the justbeats headphones. There is no worthing around this, its a must. ( she is 10 and those are the ones justin bieber sponsors )
The headset is made specially for apple and she has the samsung fascinite.(sp?)
The headphones work just fine but the mid doesn't. I know that the phone isn't compatible because I looked it up but I was hoping that someone has found a workaround or maybe there was an app that could be used to gain the microphones functionality back.
If there isn't any answers to this then could someone please explain to me what could be.causing this issue so that I could try to find some workaround. Examples of some possible reasons; apple runs their wires in a different way than other phones to keep up their monopolies on certain products, driver settings, unexpected grounds caused by some of the other functions of the hedset, etc......
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

I just bought a set of the ibeats myself and strangely they will work with the Skype app but not the phone app so it cannot be an issue with the 3.5mm jack. It is lack of some support in the phone app.

I bought a htc ibeats headset, and it was not working with my android device.

But i opened the headset (next, play, prev) remote control and changed the red line -> orange and orange -> red(reconnect with use of soldering)

All done, working with all device. still a 'but' is next and forward doesn't works. try.
