Radio keeps scanning Music keeps jumpingSupport

    When I listen to the radio it keeps scanning it will not stay on any channel. Same goes for music of what little music I have managed to download, it only plays a few seconds and jumps to the next song and sometimes it plays part of a song and FF to different parts of same song?:confused::confused::confused: I'm so unbelievably un-clued up on this phone which is my first Android :eek::eek::eek:

    Does it happen when the phone is in your pocket and you're walking? If so, check if it is locked.
    Does it happen when the phone is just sitting on a table and not moving at all? It could come from a dysfunctioning trackpad which would be stuck on right or left for some reason.

    Perhaps someone will be of better help but these are just a couple things I thought of.

    I have this exact same problem with last.fm, it will play about 2 tracks then skip intermitantly. It will buffer a song then skip to the next one, sometimes two or three times in a row.
    What's infuriating is it will even do this when connected to WiFi so it can't be a connection issue surely?

    Thanks, it does happen when Im running (thats why I bought this phone so I could listen to radio while out runnng). However I phoned 3 helpline this morning and after 25 mins of protracted discussions and me losing all my music and some contacts (my fault) I may have the problem resolved however I will know for definite when I go running tomorrow morning.

    I've resolved this by scanning and saving the station I want so that when I put the radio on I actually go ito a list of saved stations and search from there.

    I solved this by plugging in headphones that have next/back controls on them pressing each once.

    I guess the phone misinterpreted noise on the line as a control command? Hope this helps.
