    Anyone help in guiding me in getting an external mic for the phone.

    I would like to film interviews with good sound with the phone.

    Many thanks

    Is it possible to use an external mic with this phone? I notice a poster of a youtube video just claimed he can.

    Has anyone had any luck finding an external mike. Is it possible to plug a microphone into the headphone jack as is done on the iphone?

    I got an adaptor made for the jack , to allow me to connect a microphone, but it doesn't seem to work.

    When i record, it uses the built in mic.

    Is there anyway to get the phone to switch to using the external mic?
