    Default Bionic headphone jack

    hey everyone just got mine a bit ago and testing things out to see how it works compared to my D1 (besides much faster). I had the headphone jack problem on my D1, so that was one of the first things i tested out and i noticed that pushing the jack to the right even slightly would kill audio out of the headphones and switch to speaker. This is an issue for me since i often listen to music at work and don't want the room to hear it if i accidentally hit the phone. Could someone else check this out if they have headphones around to make sure its not an issue with my headset or phone.

    Bworley checked it a few days ago and didn't seem to have a problem with it. Try a different headset.

    same happens when i use the one in my car... wonder if something is up with mine because pressing it left causes no issues, only right. Part of the issue is my player doesn't pause when the headset is unplugged so it doesn't do switch to speakers if i use the stock music app. But its still annoying as if it happens a few times it will get confused and not play audio at all lol.

    I'm having major problems with my headphone jack. So much so that I'll be returning the Bionic for a new one. I've tried 4 different cables, including the one that comes with the car mount, and they work only about 50% of the time.

    I'm using Pandora radio with my Phillips headphones right now at work and I just moved the jack around. I didn't have a problem moving it. Maybe try a different pair of headphones??

    I'm also having a problem, it has a lot of static in the background. I called verizon and they noted the account and sent me to a service center to exchange for another Bionic. I hope the problem is fixed.

    Sort of on-topic: I hate the fact that the notification sounds will play through the headphones AND the phone speaker when listening to music or something. My old phones would just play it through the headphones, but not the Bionic.
