    Hey guys. I have a Lumia 920 and about a week ago it started to think the headphones were always plugged in. If I take them out just right it won't but it will usually switch back after a few mins.

    Anyone ever had this happen to them?

    Anything I can do to fix or is it off to att or Nokia. If it is off to either of these which one/whats the best way to get them to fix it?

    Thanks

    Had to go on their website and fill out a form saying what was wrong with it, they got a UPS courier to pick it up, they couldn't fix mine so they sent a replacement.

    Blow into the headphone hole to clear whatever is making the phone think a plug is there. This has happened to my 710 twice. Drove me crazy until I took the simplest fix. Worth a try!

    I've had old phones that have done this in the past. I now buy little rubber USB/Headphone socket covers, to stop rubbish getting into the ports and causing these issues

    ya I tried that. It seems to be worse than that because I have to hit this one spot in there with the headphone jack to make it work

    I had the same issue with my 920. I tried the blowing into it and everything, but nothing worked. I just sent it to Nokia yesterday. I hope they send me a new one since I had 4 other issues with the phone as well. I love the phone, but these 920s are quality control nightmares.

    This has happened to me on my BUILD 2012 developer Lumia 920. I'll report later on the resolution.
