Phone Jack Broke. Have to use speakerphone?
Long story short. My headphones jack broke in the port. After reading some tips to get it out (after trying tweezers, etc...) was to superglue the end of a paperclip to the broken part in the port. Wait, and then pull it out.
Apparently this backfired because now the headphone jack is superglued in the port. Regardless of my idiocy, it's not coming out.
The main problem is, in order to use my phone as a phone I have to do it on speakerphone. Because the phone recognizes that a headset is plugged in, I can't just put the phone up to my ear and use it.
1) would buying a bluetooth by pass this and allow me to atleast not have to use the speakerphone when having a conversation.
2) Is there an app (I've been looking) that can bypass this somehow, someway, so that I don't have to talk on speakerphone, and I can actually put it up to my ear.
Nope. No insurance. I've been very gentle with my phone, even bought an otterbox defender case for it. I think it was just faulty ear buds.
I use a motorola photon still running (sigh) gingerbread.
