    My Desire doesn't recognise the headset when I plug it in. ie the little symbol doesn't appear in the bar and nothing will play through the earbuds. :thinking:

    Anyone else had this problem or is it time to take it back to Carphone Warehouse?

    I had this once with normal headphones. I unplugged them and then tried again and they worked. No idea what happened there.

    I was just about to report a fault with my phone for this problem. read that post and tried the same (very technical) solution which also worked!

    thanks.

    Same thing happened to me - turned it off and on again solved the issue for me too.

    I happened to me when I plugged them while media was already playing - a youtube clip to be precise. Is that what sparked the bug for everyone else?

    Happened to me when i plugged it into the 3.5mm port of my car, just kept on playing through phone speakers, like the cable wasnt there. Off/on set returned the phone to normal
