    I am presently on my 2nd pixi. The first one got replaced under warranty when it got locked in headphone mode. I was using a set of iphone earbuds to listen to music on it, and after that I could only use a hands-free or put it on speaker. It was as if whatever switch tells it that there are headphones present got stuck. I would like to continue to use headphones to listen to music on it, but I'm sort of gun-shy now. Is this a common problem, or a fluke? Should I look into a bluetooth solution as to avoid using the jack?

    it's a problem with the jack, not the headphones.

    sometimes you can solve the stuck in headphone mode with a q-tip or blowing into the jack because it's usually a hardware issue.

    your i-phone headset should work.

    I use headphones daily at work on lunch, listening to podcasts.

    I would say your last problem was a fluke with the unit.

    Just so I understand, is this a common problem or not? I figured it was a problem with the jack as opposed to the headset--but is this a problem that is rare?

    I haven't had this problem, but I haven't used the jack too often. Only a couple times in the car with an auxiliary cable. I would use it more often if the default Music app didn't suck so much. :/

    Workerb33 is right, it's the headphone jack - specifically dust in the headphone jack. I usually take a Q-tip, remove as much of the cotton as possible, dip it in rubbing alcohol, and clean out jack.

    The only really guaranteed way to fix it is to use a tooth-pick to get the little spring to pop.

    the q-tip without the fuzz worled instantly. I've used head phones each day since without it again. I mowed the lawn that day before the issue maybe had some dirt/dust got it somehow idk
