Sounds like you either have dust or dirt in your headphone jack, which can be removed with a thin object such as an unfolded paperclip, or you just need a replacement. The headphone jack is part of the speaker housing assembly on the SIII. It's a very easy fix. About 8 screws or so, can't remember exactly, located behind the back plastic cover. Just unplug the old and plug in the new. Part isn't very expensive either I don't believe. Can be found on
