    Like the title says--after I hang up from a phone call, if I touch the headphone port with my finger, it crackles. It only happens after it's been a while since I used the phone. I figured out I can make it go away if I make another call. I have a 5c. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

    Does it sound like static electricity or electrical in any way. Could be as simple as your hair providing a charge along the metal input of the headphone plug. Could be something faulty inside the phone. Haven't heard of something like this before, but can you be a little more specific?

    Don't touch the headphone port. :D

    Seriously, sounds like static discharge.
