    today I plugged-in headset to my ZTE android and it turned automatically into headset mode however from now on even if I plug it out android still believe that headset is plugged in which means I cant use my phone without using headset...
    well there is work around to switch on loud speaker during call... but it doesn't make me happy....

    Any ideas of solutions?

    I know that this is an old post, but I am having the same problem, but from a different cause. Did you find a solution??

    I've never used a headset for calls, but use normal headphones for music all the time. It's stuck thinking the headphones are plugged in and the only way I get sound from a phone call is if it's on the speaker. I tried a factory reset too.

    I can't find a way of telling the phone there is no headset/headphones plugged in!

    Yey, I just found the solution!!!!

    If I'm listening to music I pull the headphones out while I'm receiving a call so that I can speak. So I called my other phone and put the headphones in and out a couple of times. The second time the headphone symbol disappeared from the bar at the top and I can hear and speak into it just fine :-D

    In most cases it is a hardware problem. There is a small switch that gets stuck inside the headphone jack. If you can't free it up with a q-tip or toothpick, you're pretty much screwed. There is a software fix in a widget called headsettoggle that fixes this for Android 1.6, but it does not yet work for 2.0+. If you have an Android 2.0+ device as of this writing you will either have to live with it or return the phone and wait 6 - 8 weeks for a replacement. Lots of bugs to iron out before Android gets my seal of approval.
