Did you check the connector on the bottom of your phone ? If theres any greenish stuff (oxidation) on the connectors/pins, there's your problem. This occurs if the connector has been exposed to moisture. If this is the case you can try to clean off as much as you can and it might correct the problem. But if this doesn´t work, the problem might be inside your phone. If you're up for it, you can take it apart yourself and try to clean the inside of your connector. If youre not up for it, or the connector is clean, take the phone down to your local service-center and have them take a look at it.

The diagnosis above proved to be accurate, however we didn't have to take apart the phone, a good blast with an air duster cleared the problem


An Air duster is a can of pressurised air used to clean IT equipment/keyboards

I dropped my phone now when people call they can't

  1. Verify there is nothing plugged into the headset port, including headsets, headphones, or adapters.
  2. While on the Home screen, adjust the volume buttons. If you see the icon below, indicating that headphones are attached, there may be debris in the headset port: ts1630_01.jpg

    To remove debris in the headset port, try connecting a pair of headphones to the headset port and then remove the headphones. Repeat this several times.
  3. If you have paired with a Bluetooth headset that is nearby, either use the headset or turn Bluetooth off (choose Settings > General > Bluetooth).
  4. If that doesn't work, try restarting the iPhone. Hold the Sleep/Wake button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.

How to remove headphone icon from the display


I have encountered with the same problem with my Nokia 6630. This may happen if somehow your phone is damaged by water or your cell is experiancing a extermly humid environment. So do one of the following:

1. Switch off your cell. Remove battery and put it some time in direct sun light. If possible your headset jack facking sun face. You can also use your table lamp. Just bend it to cover phone.
2. You can also use your hair drier. Just blow the hot air towards your phone.

Headset icon problem

Hey mayita,
If ur headset icon is not coming when u insert a headphone, it is due to non-supporting headphone or due to damaged headphone connector.
If u headset icon is continuously showing, it is also due to problem in ur headset connector. At this time, contact mobile technician.
Send me a feedback and rate my solution too.
Dont forget to post a clarification request for ur problem after it is solved.

Heaset sign is on continouisly

the problem is that when you inserted headphone in mobile , its metal contacts get connected inside then you can see that headset icon appeared on screen but sometimes it stills appeared beacause that metal contacts get connected inside mobile if there is no headset also. so you have to replace that if it get problematic.
