    and i got a case, but it doesn't plug the headphone jack. Is it a common occurance for the headphone jack to be clogged with lint and stop working?

    I don't want my iphone to be damaged because I didn't buy a good enough case.

    thanks for the help.

    Unless your pants pockets are lined with fleece, I doubt you'll have an issue. It would take a lot of lint plus a lack of cleaning for it to become an issue.

    It's not really a cause for concern. I've got a ton of lint and dust in my 30 pin connector and headphone jack. No issues here.

    I do not use my headphone port for anything besides my Square merchant account gizmo (excellent service btw)

    In my work I get into dirty situations often and am concerned about crap getting in there

    I took one of the foam ear plugs for noise protection and cut a slice off
    Then rolled it tight and slid into port leaving just enough to pull out

    Function over form for me...
