    welcome. I'd take it to a verizon store for them to look in to.

    Thanks but somebody suggested turning the phone and back on again and that worked just fine....I wonder what caused the problem in the first place

    Most likely the problem came from using the headphone jack and removing the headphones. This is a software issue that you can find references to in other forum posts. Rebooting the phone fixes the problem. But that's a pain if you use the phone as an MP3 player and then try to receive a call. I just returned my 2nd Droid with this exact problem. Apparently the phone treats the jack as though it has a chord plugged in even after you remove the plug from the jack. To me a MAJOR flaw that needs to be remedied immediately.

    Your right That's exactly what I did. I was listening to slacker radio using an old set of really good computer speakers. I hope they fix it in an upgrade soon. Thank You
