    I have two unrelated questions concerning the iPod mode play/pause behavior. My hardware is an 8GB 3G purchased late January 2009, running software version 3.0.1.

    1) In iPod mode, the inline headset button will only un-pause the music. Pause does not work--I have to pull the phone out of my pocket, double-click the home button, etc.. I have the original headphone/mic headset that came with it. I've seen reports of the button not working at all (i.e. dust in the bottom of the jack), but I can definitely un-pause a song with it, so I don't think it's the headset. Sounds like a weird software bug to me. Has anyone else seen this behavior?

    2) If I pause an audiobook halfway through a chapter, and then hit the home button and load a couple pages in Safari (or any other app that uses a lot of memory), and then go back to the iPod main menu, it forgets the chapter and position. Is there anything I can do to fix this? It has become pretty annoying with large-ish audiobooks, I've resorted to writing down the position on a post-it note.

    I apologize in advance if this has been posted elsewhere. I tried to search but nothing relevant turned up.

    Thanks,

    Neil

    try restoring your iPhone.


    although I don't think the second problem will be fixed in a restore, it should fix the first one.

    Not a fix for the first, but a work around to it.

    Instead of taking it out of your pocket, try just unplugging the headphone a little and then plugging it back in. That will pause the music, and you can replay/unpause your music from the headphones.
