    Hey guys, I was plugging my phone in earlier, and I noticed a little pin-sized hole to the right of the charger hole on my phone....it kinda looks like the reset hole on an old game anyone know what this is for?

    What about the one on the top? My mate had an iphone before and tried to open the sim card tray by putting the pin in there and pressed before he realised his error!!! He's now worried that he's damaged something. Has he?

    As stated above, small (not 3.5mm) holes are typically condensor mics. Some devices have one, some have two. They may be the size of a pin, but inserting one to prove it is generally a bad idea.

    Well, what does poking a relatively sizeable hole in a microphone do? It may effect the voice quality on phone calls at the very least.
