    So after I almost had a heart attack for an hour trying to figure out how to get my iPhone 4 out of headphones mode, the battery was getting ready to die. I plugged it in to charge and hoila! it fixed the problem. People, I tried just about everything in these blogs to fix it including plugging and unplugging the headphones 40 times to cleaning the port. My last resort was to restore the phone. I hope this helps, my phone is only 3 weeks old and this little glitch almost had me in tears.

    This issue is not hardware based. There is no logic behind freezer vs sucking it. This issue is a software bug that apple has addressed in the newest updates. It has never been hardware based or due to lint etc. It has always been a firmware issue.

    I tried everything too. The freezer thing worked for about 2 hours. I then made an appointment with the genius bar. They did a diagnostic check said moisture was the problem. Since I was still in warranty the give me another phone and synced it using the cloud. Everything fell in place even the folders remained in alphabetic order. I think may one program was missing which I will recover with my next app sync to the computer.


    Hope This Helps....

    I noticed some moisture when I tried the rapid headphone plug/unplug trick, so I then proceeded to use a hair dryer and a q-tip w/ most of the cotton removed. That didn't work, but when I pressed and held the volume + the reading went from "ringer (headphones)" to "ringer". Problem solved. Not sure why. My guess is it was some sort of a hardware hiccup. I was even able to recreate the glitch by inserting a pair of headphones, playing w/ the volume, and unplugging the phones. Playing with the volume after unplugging read "ringer (headphones)" until I did the press and hold the + trick. Let me know if this helps any of you.

    Just had the same problem. I did the plug unplug deal, no joy. I tried the hairdryer...and that worked. Apparently even with the Otter Box on my phone, moisture got in the headphone jack today in the rain. Working now though.

  • seanandmack Level 1 Level 1

    ive tride the unpug an plug back in trick, blow in it,restore, blah blah nothn worked sadly. but just the other day i plugeged in my headphones and turned off my ipod while keeping headphones in, then turned it back on and while it was on the apple display symbol i unpluged the headphones and it seemed to work fine after that

  • apozepam Level 1 Level 1

    I experienced the same issue today. I tried the tips listed throughout this thread and had no luck. While on hold with 1-800-MY-IPHON, I inserted and removed the earphones and my phone reset itself to non-headphone mode. Perhaps another solution is to remove the earphones during a phone call? Everything seems to be working fine now. Hope this helps someone else!

  • DOAOBerdmann Level 1 Level 1

    My girlfriend had the same problem with her iPhone 4. After messing with it for a while and trying every method, I gave up and set it down on her Powermat, where it made a nice syncing sound. And just like that, BAM! all fixed. I hope this helps someone.

  • rufx Level 1 Level 1

    Had the same problem i dropped my phone into snow today, but it worked only after i used the hair dryer, over the jack slot and on the upper back of the phone. So don't forget the hair dryer!

  • Matthew Fletcher Level 1 Level 1

    A really simple fix for all those stuck in headphones mode.

    I haven't read all the posts in this forum but the ones I did simply didn't help me, so I had a play and found the solution!


    1) Put in your iPhone headphones.

    2) Begin playing a travk in the iPod section, your should hear it playing through the headphones.

    3) Turn your phone off whilst the track is playing.

    4) After your phone is completely switched off, remove the headphones and turn back on your phone.

    5) Your phone is back in ringer mode!


    Or should be, hope this helps.

    Okay, so I've tried everything anyone posted on this thread and nothing seemed to work.

    (tried pluging/unpluging the headphones at least 60 times, tried the Q-tip trick...nothing!)


    I took my girlfriend's hair blowdryer, set it to cool and to max...


    Presto!!! I can now hear music, I can also hear myself talking when I tried calling myself!

  • Caesar89 Level 1 Level 1

    Had the same problem today after disconnecting it from my hands free in my car. Tried inserting and removing headphones several times but nothing. THEN cracked on the hairdryer and BOOM, we're back on people. Many thanks for all the comments

  • Zylyph Level 1 Level 1

    Hey giys i tried EVERYTHING you guys mentioned but none of them work. Sadly the simplest thing fixed it for me. If youve ever noticed that volume levels change based on if the headphones are plugged in or not (ex. - if the headphones are plugged in you could have it set at half volume, but unplugged, you could have it set to max). What i did was bring up the ipod and play music with the headphones plugged in. I changed the volume level some and unplugged the headphones (the volume level went to a different setting because it still recognizes the different volume levels, its just STUCK in headphone mode), and changed the volume level again. The music stopped playing just like when you unplug headphones. I hit the play button and it was fixed. Sorry for the length, i just wanted to give all the steps

    Hi Guys,


    I was having the same issue from last few days. But today it got worst as it was happening frequently. I am still not figure out the issue that why it is happening. As i tried the following.

    (1) Putting the headphone many times

    (2) Put in the cold place

    (3) Use hair dryer

    (4) Clean the phone headphone socket


    Nothing worked for me.


    I figured out that there are only two reason it happens.


    (1) my car stereo has a bluetooth and everytime i connect to that it happens

    (2) I am using a china made car charger


    Anyways my problem sorted out when i put the phone on the charger and take out the charger pin 3 - 4 times and suddenly i hear the noise of the charger getting connected.


    So try this it may works for you.
