    Hey, ya'll . . .

    I am having an issue with my iPhone. This started yesterday; my iPhone likes to randomly decide that headphones are plugged in, even when they aren't, meaning that if I'm out and about and get a call / need to make a call, the earpiece won't work because it is sending the sound out through the (nonexistent) connected headphones. I can solve the problem by unplugging and plugging my headphones a few times, but this is not an optimal solution, since I don't carry them around with me. The problem is not limited to after I have used the headphones; just this afternoon, I used my headphones, unplugged them, made a call like normal, and then randomly an hour later it decided that the phones were plugged in. Anyone have similar issues?

    If your phone isn't jailbroken, just do a quick restore. It usually fixes small issues like that.

    it seems as though this may be a problem under 1.1.4. I have read several reports about this. It has also happened to me.

    This has happened to me, on every single firmware version I've had, starting with 1.0.2. Seems like a hardware issue to me. Twisting the plug around in the jack seems to solve it.

    Except the OP has no plug in the jack when it happens to him....

    This has happened to me since 1.1.1. A reset usually fixes it.
