No internal mic with headphones!?
I've recently splashed out on a very decent pair of headphones, and am having trouble using the mic built in to them.
Basically, they have two interchangeable cords which lead to a 3.5mm jack, one of which has a built in mic with controls for Play/Pause, Skip Next/Previous and the ability to answer and end calls. Unsurprisingly, the built in mic does not work with my Incredible S, neither do the track skip buttons. However I am able to play and pause tracks.
Honestly, I'm more than accepting that 100% compatibility is a rare thing now days, but my second problem is that even when I have the headphones plugged in, I can't even use the phones own mic to speak through.
Music will fade, I'll get the ringing sound and can hear the other person perfectly but they can't hear me at all.
Is this a "fault" or a feature?
I used to be able to do this with my iPhone, and I've gotta' admit that I miss it.
I've had an entire day of Google searching and browsing the forums to find out if there are others out there with the same problem, but most of the threads are out of date and for now obsolete phones.
Any help would be great guys. Thanks
