Default Bad connection between phone and headphones

Please Login to Remove!

I bought a Curve 9300 around 3 months ago and am using the headphones/earphones that were supplied with the phone. Today, I have found that the headphones are not plugging in fully and the connection between the phone and the headphones is intermittent. My phone often switches between the headphone and speaker modes when the headphones are plugged in causing the music or video that I am watching to pause constantly. This mostly happens when the headphone plug twists around, even if only by a small amount. Does anyone have any ideas about how to fix the problem? Thanks.

The jack is defective. Depending on your ability it needs to be replaced by you or sent out for repair.
Look on the internet for videos on repair.

Insert and remove the plug a number of times while something is playing. If there is some dust or something in the female connector this may work it out.

It could also be either connector. Try other earphones that you know are good and test.
