    There is something stuck in the ear plug jack of my iphone 4. I think it's possibly lint from my pocket. I've tried everything I can think of to get it out (paper clips, compressed air, etc). Anyone ever had anything jammed into their ear plug jack, if so how'd you get it out? It's pretty jammed in there and I can't connect headphones to it. TIA

    I tried that. The hole isn't big enough.

    is it stuck or just too far down to reach with anything?

    have you tried using a straw and sucking it back out

    It's just too far down to reach it with anything that I have that can grab it. It's definitely something that is like paper (lint maybe) because when I pick at it with an unfolded paper clip little pieces of paper come off. I don't want to ruin it so I've been careful what I put down there.

    I'm going to try a straw. I'll have to go get one somewhere. haha
