    Hey guys,

    I'm having issues with my Vibrant in regards to the music player. Every time I unplug my headphones from phone, the music player launches and plays music through the speaker. I use the headphones to talk while I game, and am not running the music app, however it still chooses to open. Is there anyway I can prevent this? Is anyone having the same problem?

    Thanks in advance

    This is a known issue with Android, and devs have acknowledged it. As far as I know, it may be fixed with the Gingerbread in Q4 of this year. I don't know what phone or version your running, but salvation may come sometime this year.

    Please go and tell Google your having this problem by logging in and adding a star to this issueIssue 5134 - android - Musicplayer starts automatically with headphones plugged in overriding every other playing app - Project Hosting on Google Code

    edit: This may not work for you that well, but you can look for the free widget (or on appbrain if you can't find it on the market) called "Block Headset" which basically blocks all incoming signals from the headset jack. But this will block in-line headset controls and maybe even in-line mics.
