    So today I dropped my phone (htc eris) in snow but it didn't submerge and I checked the water damage indicator and it still has the little red x's on the white strip so there was no water damage. But now the phone is randomly stuck in headphone mode. I have searched the forum and the only fix people have mentioned is rebooting and taking out the battery... That doesn't work for me.

    Does anyone have another solution to this problem??

    you probably got snow in the 3.5mm opening and it might of rusted a bit and made contacts close/open, responsible for detecting headphones.

    I was going to suggest holding the phone with the jack facing down and plugging in some headphones a few times to see if it will loosen any dirt and then maybe try some blowing some air in there. A q-tip might leave some cotton in the jack.
