    right then last week i was involved in a car crash, i had my belkin lead plugged in to my iphone 2g after the crash i went to make a call but couldnt hear anything until i put it on to loudspeaker

    i then noticed wen i made a call if i tryed to turn the volume up it said headphones in brackets so i new that the phone still thought my jack was in

    so i restored it still no joy...

    so i looked on the net to see if i could see anything, few people said try inserting my headphones and take it out when music is playing but still no joy...but i can hear my ringtone when some one phones me and if i plug in my headphones i still dont hear nothing tho???

    does anyone no anything else i could try

    took it into apple today and they said because its out of warranty i had to pay £140 to repair it

    Probably needs some diagnostics - need to look at that headphone cable assembly and the phone internals to ensure nothing broken or dislodged. Have you got a local repairer?

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    I've got the same problem, and there's really nothing you can do w/o getting it repaired. I thought it was software, but I've done everything, so I know it's a problem in the jack now. Sucks you're OOW.

    If you feel up to it, you can buy new 2G rear cases with all the switches, headphone jack etc already installed - depends on your confidence.
