    Anyone having issues plugging an AUX cord in to play music in their car? It works at first but then it dies and you have to twist it back in a certain way to play the music. LOL. That's not gonna work at all. Do I have to send this back in so I can play my music or what? I talked to T mobile and they told me it was a issue with Samsung. Odd. Yet I called Samsung and the lady is talking about needing a certain "adapter" that is Samsung S4 compatible to work. Never heard anything like it. The headphones are kind of iffy and it connects most of the time but sometimes it needs to be reasserted.

    Anyone have these kind of issues? Am I gonna have to send this back to T mobile and get a new one?

    First I've heard of it!

    Are you sure that there is nothing in the jack (dust/lint)?

    Works for me without a problem... I think T-Mobile is screwing with you

    The aux cord works perfectly for my S2..so the dust or lint issue shouldn't even be it. Never heard of that being probem with any phone ever...

    Ive never even tried to use the Bluetooth.

    Maybe water got on the connections and corroded it? Might have to repair the audio jack or port. It's not too bad of a job! Does the jack look discolored, maybe? I'm not sure what corrosion on that phone would look like.

    It was, unfortunately, a VERY common issue with the Droid Razr (which is why I mentioned it). Doesn't hurt to check! :)

    Dunno how lint would bung up the headphone jack. BUT, went to the grocery store listening via headphone to Aux car radio. When I came out the headphone plug wouldn't seat in the jack. About 1/16" from seating. Tried a few workarounds from google to no avail. BT here I come. Carry my S4 in my pants pocket and I ain't about to change that.

    I would check for interference between the plug and the smartphone case that might keep it from plugging in firmly. Trying it without the case would be the first step.
