Help with Headphone Jack
I don't know if similar thing has happened with someone or not, i tried searching but all in vain. I have a Curve 8900 which i basically use for texting and music for jogging. Recently it gave up on me
One morning i woke up (today to be precise at 6:20 am) and the phone was working fine and when i put in the headphone jack it recognized them but when i played a song it instantly paused it as if it had been removed from the jack.
I tried a few times but it wouldn't work now i have spent 6 hours both on the internet and on my phone and found following things:
1. When i plug in the jack it recognizes the headphone but when the music is played it shows that no jack is plugged in and tries to route the music through speaker, funny thing is when it tries to do so some AI or hardware trick in it tells it that the headphone is plugged in and it switches back to headphone, pausing the song.
2. I tried to receive a call through headphones, which it did not recognize at the time so i called and plugged in the headset, after that it went into an infinite loop of "recognized-not plugged in" icons i.e the headset icon and the phone receiver icon.
3. Nothing else seems to be wrong with it i have checked almost everything that i use in the phone.
WHAT I HAVE TRIED ALREADY:
What I have NOT done:
1.Dropped my phone
2.Pushed the jack in too hard
4.Recently Upgraded Software
Please suggest me some tricks to:
1. To solve the problem
2. If the problem is unsolvable please tell me how to find out if the jack- adapter is faulty
PS- the service center takes about 2-4 weeks for fixing. i don't wanna go there and dump my life for a month

I had a similar issue with my BB Curve 8910 and ultimately discoverd it was hardware related and cost to repair was $35-$45 total parts and labor however the wait for parts was 10 days. I sold the old unit for parts unit and bought same phone in secondary market for $80.00 and moved SIM card and rocked on after moving back through and completing configuration. That's my story - hardware issue with the audio jack port to board - electronics issue.
