Introduction

The headphone jack is the place where headphones are inserted into the phone to redirect the sound from the speaker to external headphones. If you are experiencing an issue, check to make sure the headphones are not the source. If you experience issues with multiple headphones in the same jack, you may consider replacing the jack. The headphone jack is connected to the vibrator and can be removed by gently pulling on the assembly.
