So this is an issue on the Lumia 900, even with Nokia Purity Headphones. If the screen is locked, the pause/play/next/previous controls don't work or only work sporadically. Everything works fine when the screen is on or the phone is unlocked.
Can anyone confirm that this is fixed and that they can use inline controls when the phone is locked and the screen is off?

We need someone to try this with a 3 button headset that works with wp7/8. Most of the 3 button units out there are designed to work with apple, so skip forward/back isn't going to work at all. That said, the fact that the apple headset paused and played with the screen off is a good sign I think.
I'm planning on getting a 920 on launch day, so I'll reply to this thread with an answer asap, unless someone can do it sooner.

I haven't had enough time to do extensive testing, I usually only use headphones on the way to and from work.
However, in the few minutes I was playing around with it, it does seem more responsive if you do it while music is running. One time when I had music paused, it didn't respond to the button press to unpause it, but I haven't been able to duplicate that yet.
So I would say so far, much better than the 900, but I can't say for sure if it's perfect.
I'm testing with a Phonak PFE-122 headset, which is a single-button headset.

The completely unwearable headphones from my HTC HD7S work for volume, pause/play, and skip forward when the phone is locked (and active). I can't skip backwards at all, but I can activate & use voice control (when the phone is active).
But...never, under any circumstances, should you attempt to wear these headphones, they are not designed for human ears.
