Headphone jack issue?
Afternoon folks, long time reader, first time poster.
Anywho, bought the G2 on launch day trading up from a Galaxy Nexus, love it so far! Couple of small issues though:
When plugging a Auxiliary cord from the phone into my cars radio, it will at times randomly seem to disconnect the headphone input, so audio stops playing out of the car and comes back out of the phone speaker. I've tried a couple different cords, seems to be the same result. Additionally, not sure if its related, if i take a phone call after the cord has been disconnected, the people on the other end of the call seem to think I'm in a tunnel and only turning on speakerphone lets them hear me. Once I reboot the phone, everything works fine.
Anyone else having these issues?

Re: Headphone jack issue?
I just ordered what will be my third G2, the first one has a headphone jack problem after about two months, the second one lastede about two weeks. Both with exactly the same symptoms, plug in headphones and the phone recognizes them, but after a slight jiggle of the cord and they lose the connection. You see the headphone indicator spastically coming on and off while you turn or jiggle the headphone wire. Seems like a short in the jack iteself. Otherwise I've loved the phone, but this is a deal killer for me. If the third one does it I'm going to flip out. Too much of a pain to reload all my apps every couple months.

Re: Headphone jack issue?
st_pinetree, I am in a nearly identical situation. My first LG G2 lasted 2 months before running into the same audio input issue. Second one lasted exactly 3 weeks and is even worse than the first.
Was the third time a charm for you? Also, were you using the stock LG experience or did you load a custom ROM onto your phone?
