my IPHONE 3G has had this problem since i bought it 2 years ago, all the updates have made no difference. basically anything but the apple official headphones causes the ipod to randomly start & plays random tracks at silly speeds. trying to use the pause button rarely works & the only solution is to turn off the iphone & back on. I have contacted apple numerous times & yet to even have a reply. this happens even with headphones & audio jacks claiming to be specifically iphone 3G compatible.
is this a fault with the iphone (maybe the jack) or another ploy by apple to get more of their products sold?
any comments even if you have not had this problem are welcome.
iPhone 3G, iPhone OS 3.1.3, works better than iOS4 (downgrade)
