Unhappy Headphone jack is broken?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok I have no Idea how this happened but my headphone jack is broken. It still plays music through headphones but it's not as good as it used to be.

the silver ring around the hole has popped out..... it doesnt play stuff on the speaker when you don't have headphones plugged in.... when you move the headphones down a little it will only play in one ear.... if you move it up a little then it plays on the speaker.... and the headphones come out easier than before.

so my question is: can I get it fixed or something? get the jack replaced? it's practically the most important part of my phone since my ipod broke and now it barely works when you use headphones.... so yeah can I get it fixed somehow?

if it's still under warranty, you can locate an AT&T Device Support Center on their website. if there is one near you, they will swap it out for free, on the spot... no waiting for them to deliver one to your house.

if it's not, consider contacting a repair facility... they'll simply solder a new jack into place as long as that's the only problem.

the site sponsor listing has a few businesses listed.

i'm not a site sponsor, so i cant tell you i do cellphone repairs at $29/hr plus parts.
