    Hello All,

    I am on 03 and all of a sudden I cant make or receive phone calls or play MP3's through my speaker. I can only use my phone if i have the wired stereo head phones plugged in. Anyone else have this problem? Is their a fix? Should I return my phone?

    There was a problem that existed on some storms that involved the wired headset port. What was happening was that the device was still thinking a headset was connected even when unplugged. The solution was to play a song and stick a toothpick or something small into the port. Then you want to slightly jiggle it until you trip the pin and your sounds should return.

    why not just stick a headphone connector in and out of there a couple of times? Surely a much safer bet than taking a chance of breaking off a toothpick, and it possibly getting stuck? Or even something less breakable like a sewing needle?

    I had the same problem today. I found a post that recommended using a q tip to clean out the port...removed about half the cotton and carefully cleaned it out and shazam, no more problems!
