Just last week I was using the S3 to record audio for a podcast and it usually works. I plug in a Logitech headset-mic (I only plug in the mic as there is one for the headphones and the mic). And normally I can just record using the standard voice recorder. Now for some reason it does not want to do that. I have tried using my Plantronics headset-mic as well and it still only records from the phone's built in mic. If I use the headset mic that comes with the phone, that works. I'm just befuddled as I have 2 S3's and they both used to record with external mics and now fail to do so. I don't recall in recent updates or changes made to the phone. Is there a way to specify to use external mics or a more preferred app?
