Hi, I'm trying to find a cable to connect a 3.5mm external lapel microphone to the iphone4.  There are threads which mention a KV Connections cable, but some people seem to have had problems with this. Anyone actually successfully using their iphone4 with an external 3.5mm mic?  cheers. crispy

    3.5mm minijack std. is output only the mic is a 3th ring on the connector in apples case there is no std that many use

    so you got 3 options

    1. canabalize an apple headset and connect ground and the mic wire from the cut cable to a female connector for the 3.5mm

    2. fall over somebody who make the 1 and sell them

    3. by random luck find somebody else who invented the same std as apple use for adding the mic input to an output 3.5 mini stereo jack
