This problem has followed me...
So after 3 replacement RAZR Maxx's due to a faulty headphone jack each time, that problem has followed me to my S4. For full disclosure, the Maxx's issue was the jack just getting scratchy and eventually not working. It wasn't the same type of problem.
When I got my S4 the day after lunch day, the headphone jack never worked right. Things wouldn't snap in well and I didn't know anything was wrong until after the 14 days. I got my returb replacement, and things were fine.
Now it's going out again, so I'm going by the Verizon place to order another refurb.
Is there something wrong with phones I get or what? Please don't suggest Bluetooth headphones, that won't fix bad build quality. I am careful with my phone and I don't abuse it in any way. It also doesn't matter what kind of accessory I plug in. It's not what I'm plugging in that's bad.
A friend of mine has an iPoop 4 and the darn thing is three years old and has a perfectly good headphone jack with nearly daily use.
What the heck? Why is everything a cheap piece-O-kwap? Anyone else have a persistent problem that follows them to another phone?
I would get a ONE , but I want removable storage.
If your best choices brought you to where you are and you don't like that place
, then remember it won't be the same type of choices that will get you out.
