    So my iphone 4 is stuck in headphones mode. Can of compressed air works like a charm! But get this: Whenever I blow into the headphone jack, it goes straight back into headphones mode. Any idea?:eek:

    So you used a can of compressed air to blow debris from your headphone jack and now the phone is broken? I don't understand your post...and why exactly would you do that?!?

    Lol let me explain a bit more. I was listening to some music on my phone last night and when I took out the headphones, it was still stuck in headphones mode. This has happened to me before so I used a can of compressed air to shoot inside the headphone jack to resolve the problem (Because this is what they do at the apple store) Now I was on the phone with a buddy of mine last night on the phone and it went BACK into headphones mode, mind you, there were no headphones in. Anyways after some testing I found out that whenever I even slightly blew into the headphone jack with MY breath it would go into headphones mode, and sometimes even randomly, where if I used the can of compressed air, it would go out of headphones mode.

    And im pretty sure blowing LIGHTLY into the headphone jack shouldn't cause the phone to think headphones are in it! Ah yes, i've tried rebooting. Doesn't work :(
