    Default loose headphone jack

    anyone else have a problem with the plug not seating into the headphone jack with a solid click? the one on my phone is so lose that the plug comes out with no effort. Just barely moving the phone will cause the headphone to unseat. I don't like it when people sit in a restaurant, or somewhere else, and play their music for all to hear.. There have been a few times when this has happened accidently to me as the plug won't seat firmly. i will stop by the Sprint store and see what they say. Bet I have to give up the phone for awhile, huh?

    Mine is pretty tight, guessing they'll have to take apart your phone to fix it. But I wanted to say, what is up with people playing their music put in the open as if they are the only ones who can hear it? This has happened to me 4 times in this last couple weeks where people are shopping at target and blaring their music for everyone to hear! I swear people live in their own universe without regard for anyone else lol

    I was jamming some killer brutal metal tunes at Best Buy and a guy came up to me and asked what awesome band was it. Only people who jam cool tunes like me can get away with it. But if you play stuff that is on the radio or is popular old crap, you are a loser.

    Getting back to OP's main point, I initially had this problem with my G2 as well. Turned out I just wasn't pushing the plug in hard enough - had to push significantly harder than on my old Evo, but it then sets with a positive "click" and all is well.

    Also, if you are using a case, it's possible that there isn't enough clearance in the hole for the jack and the plastic portion of the plug is getting hung up. Try your jack without the case, or try a different headset to see if that fixes the problem. Shouldn't be too hard to expand the hole in the case if need be.

    No case. I go naked. I've had the phone since Nov and the pressure to insert jack is different now. I plug four different devices into G2; IEM, headphones, cable from car stereo, and FiiO Kunlun amp. I don't get a click and plugs are in all the way.

    Yep, sounds physically damaged, then. Hope you can get it fixed/replaced quickly. You may get lucky and the store can swap it out then and there.

    Just got back. Company store said they can no longer order replacement phones. They sent me to a third party store. The third party store attempted to repair, but could not so they ordered another phone. Doesn't that seem strange? The store owned by Sprint can not order replacement phones? I was asked if I have insurance. I did. I wanted to ask, "Why, it's under warranty"? But I did not want to muddy the water.

    That does seem strange. When I cracked the screen on my Evo back in January or February, I get a new (refurb) phone with no problem at all (under insurance). And that phone had been out for almost two years by then. The G2 has only been out about six months or so.

    Push the male piece into the phone MUCH HARDER THAT YOU THINK YOU HAVE TO. Should fix your problem.

    I had the same problem with mine. I stuck a tooth pick in the jack and pulled a bunch of lint out now it works fine.

    that is a different problem. My plug would go in all the way. You could not push it in any further. there was no "brass" visible. It was in all the way. It would just slide out. By gravity, for example. Loose.

    I just bought a samsung Gs5 that has the same problem. Apparently there are many reports of this issue. I'm seeing that either people get it repaired (looks complicated to DYI) or get a replacement.

    Thank you so much!!! I was looking all over for a fix to this and if it wasn't for your post, I would have went out and bought a new Audio Jack for no reason!!!

    I just purchased mine last week and I'm now experiencing the same problem. It worked fine when I initially used it, however now it will not stay in place

    This definitely didn't happen. The people in that Best Buy probably thought you were a jerk. I seriously hope this is a joke reply.
