    Does anyone else have this situation?
    Every time I plug in my head phones, my ipod part of iphone starts with the first song, Alphabetically.
    It didn't happen with my original iphone, just my new 3g. It's weird, the first song just starts playing...

    I have seen someone elses iPod app open automatically when plugging in headphones. How do you turn this on?

    This is a LOUSY feature. When I plug my iphone into the car (which charges it and lets it play through the speakers) it automatically opens the ipod app and starts playing the last song played or the first song alphabetically. So annoying. I HATE this "feature". There SHOULD be a way to turn it off. Sometimes when I am on the phone and forget about this "feature" I plug my phone in and music just starts playing WHILE I AM ON THE ***** PHONE. nice apple... nice.

    Not a "feature"

    This is NOT an iPhone "feature". A headphone must be iPhone compatible to avoid this. It has something to do with the fitting. My headsets (with microphone) were causing this. I called Apple. Bought different headsets. No iPod playing.
