    As awful and annoying this issue can be, in my experience, the techs at the Sprint store can clear the most stubborn stuck in headset issue in less than a minute. They've always done it for free for me (of course, I'm still in warranty).

    So here's the boring technical explanation. The jack is a normaling jack, meaning it has a switch that opens and closes when you plug/unplug. This is a very common thing in audio devices and virtually all headphone jacks operate this way. What happens (particularly because this jack is not soldered) is the contacts oxidize (think rust or tarnish) and it blocks the electrical signals. The solution is to get some plastic friendly contact cleanear. I use Deoxit D5, but there are other options which should be available from an electronics shop or pro audio repair shop. A quick squirt and run a male plug in and out quickly a few times and you will be all set.
