    Hey,

    I bought a wired headset from ebay a Samsung that was marketed for the Optimus V. I bought two of them and the button on both of them does not hand up the call etc.

    Has anyone found one that works? I am also looking for an extension cable with a microphone that I can connect regular headphones to. I had one for my palm centro that worked great.

    Thanks in advance!

    Have you rooted your phone? If so, you can use keymapper to try to find if the button is recognized, and if so, which button it is mapped to. If you find the button, you can then remap it's function using buttonremapper.

    Here's a link to the thread over at XDA, you need the top two attachments at the bottom of the first post, KeynrTracker.apk and ButtonRemapperV0_2.4.1.apk

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=850464

    First use the KeynrTracker.apk with your headset plugged in, then press the button on the headset cord to find it's keycode. Next, open ButtonRemapper and find the keycode, then choose what you want that button to do. When finished with the ButtonRemapper, you need to reboot your phone.

    (I PM'd you this info, and posted it here for everyone else)

    Hey,

    I tried the process on xda and it did not recognize the button on the headset. It did for the one that came with the phone. Anyhow...I already gave a headset to a friend of mine who has a motorola citrus. Worked great on that phone.

    Anyone else found a wired headset that works?

    I bought these and used them for an extended period the first time today.

    I give the quality of construction an 8, sound quality a 7, and value a 10. I'm no audiophile so YMMV. They feel nice and solid, come in a nifty little zip up case, and have 4 sets of different size cushions.

    I made several phone calls today and no one complained about not being able to hear me.

    The button works for both answering/ending calls and controlling whichever media player-esque app I had opened last.

    Whats wrong with the stock headset?

    Are you using a custom rom?

    15 bucks really isnt that much for a headset. I have two headsets for my computer that cost right around 100 bucks each. One I won from sound blaster the other I bought. Also the cheaper the headset the quality will be lesser.

    Hey,

    The stock one is fine. I just want a backup one. $15 is too much as I bought a samsung one on ebay for $5 the button didn't work though.
