    So I was just popping down to the post-office and quickly grabbed my iPhone earbuds on the way out. I know these 'headphones' are bad sounding but I don't like walking around the streets with my massive Sennheisers!! Plus I hadn't bothered to open my HTC buds as yet.

    For a laugh I thought I'd just see if the mic button would work and to my surprise it does!! Here's what I found:

    * Start playback of music = single press
    * Pause music = single press
    * Auto-redial of last number called = double press (while music is playing or not!)
    * Cancel call before it is picked up = press and hold (if music was playing previously it will resume)
    * Put current call on hold = single press
    * Resume call = single press
    * End call = single press

    You have to do the double press quite quickly for it to work properly.

    Anyone else notice this too??

    ps. as you can tell I was previously an iPhone user up until yesterday!!

    hurrah for the converted..! :)

    I suspect it uses exactly the same control functions as the HTC remote, and certainly uses the same 3.5mm 3 stage connection.

    Can't say I'd bother using either the official HTC or iPhone sets as they are both incredibly uncomfortable. I wonder if the better apple headphones work as well? They are far more comfortable, but about

    I'd noticed that pause/play worked with my ipod shuffle earphones. Shame the volume buttons don't.
