    Hi Guys,

    I looked around and couldn't find an answer for this, so I thought to try here.

    I bought my iPhone outright a couple of days ago, and been using it since as an iPod while I wait for it to be unlocked.

    One thing that I have been finding annoying when listening to music is that if you have to move to the next track, you have to take the iPhone out and forward. I later found that you are suppose to be able to fast forward by using the included microphone by double-clicking the answer/send button.

    I have tried this a few time with no luck. I even shut down the iPhone and this didn't do anything. Is the microphone broken?

    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Well guys,

    As it works out, the problem was a dodgy connection. I put my iPhone in a protective rubber cover from day one. After reading about, I though, what would happen if I removed the cover and plug it directly into the phone... Bualah! the thing worked... so the rubber casing was preventing the headphones from making a good a connection with the iPhone

    Problem sorted.
