    I take my phone everywhere with me, usually on my hip in a holster of some type. The headphone jack on the Dinc represents a substantial port of entry for dirt and moisture. I know I had an LG flip phone years ago that make with a rubber plug to prevent such substances from entering.

    I am hoping that someone here has a solution for the Dinc, and hopefully available at say, Lowes, instead of ordering a $0.10 piece of rubber off the internets.

    It doesn't have to be a "headphone jack plug" per se, but something that will work just the same?

    I will be receiving my phone on Wednesday, and I happen to work at Lowe's. So if you haven't found anything by the time I get it, I will take a look and see if we have something that will work for you.

    Caulk or JB weld should work fine

    Radio Shack may also be a good/cheap place to pick up something like this.

    This is a good point, never thought of that. I happen to have the one that came with my Dare, guess I will use it. What other open ports and on the Dinc?

    It's a headphone jack. Just turn the phone upside down and tap it or spray it with compressed air if it ever gets bad. Moisture doesn't matter in it either, unless maybe you fill it with water and then stick headphones it. It's just metal in there.

    I'll probably be looking for something like this too. It would sure be nice to pick something up locally vs. buying offline.

    I do also recall that when I had a Dare way back when it did come with that headphone plug. Seems like it was the only phone I remember including that..

    I lost my dare plug about 2 hours after I bought it.

    Now that (hopefully) everyone has their phone, has anyone found a suitable plug?
