    So I'm at work and had my iPhone plugged into my computer to charge and had my headphones in for listening to music. Actually, I was listening to Christian Bale yell at a DP on his set. Everything was stopped and had been for a while. I decided to get up and leave my desk so I unplugged my headphones and a few seconds later while unplugging the usb cable a song started playing. It was even a song I had been listening to recently, it was completely random. I also noticed the random playback option had been turned on and the volume was turned all the way up. After pausing it I opened the music player and it was back to the album I had last been listening to and everything was normal.

    Anyone else ever see this?

    Mine did this about a week ago, I was listening to music in the car with my earphones on (riding shotgun, so don't worry ;)), I paused the music and then disconnected the earphones and out of no where the song I was listening to went full blast through the speakers. Happened twice that day.

    This has happened to me several times. I even posted here about it but I cannot locate the thread. I called Apple care and they were not much help for the issue. I ended up getting a new iPhone 3G since the silent switch broke on my old 3G. Since then I've only seen this occur one time. I am almost wondering if it has to do with pulling the headphones not exactly straight out of the jack.

    I've had this happen as well.

    Not since 3.0 though, I don't think, but certainly in the 2.X days.
