    There are 2 types- an older one with the two buttons, and the newer one which is smaller and has no buttons on it.

    With the newer one, it's fine to just yank it out. With the older one, you'd probably damage the phone if you didn't push the buttons in.

    New one might not have side buttons.

    If it does, USE IT.

    Not so sure, probably a packaging mishap, or you accidentally used an older one thinking its the newer one from an old iPod or something.

    Rule of thumb, if it has the buttons, use them, unless you want to destroy your new 4S.

    Had an old iPod nano and cord a friend gave me and I almost destroyed the thing getting it unplugged until I figured out to squeeze the sides of the plug.

    Now, I do it instinctively on all apple cables.
