    Microphone is disabled when i plug headphones into my phone

    Hello everyone,

    I recently got a Galaxy S2 and love the phone, except for this annoying feature. With my old smart phone, I could call someone with my headphones plugged in, and still talk to them on the phone. This made life much easier for me at times when i was driving and needed to be hands free. However, with this phone, I can call someone with my headphones plugged in and hear what they are saying, but I cannot talk back to them because the phone seems to disable the built in microphone when I plug my headphones in. Is there anyway to disable this so that i can use the built in microphone while my headphones are plugged in? Any help woud be greatly appreciated!

    Is there a mic built into your headphones, or are just trying to use the mic in the phone while the headphones are plugged in? I am pretty sure that plugging in headphones disables the telephone mic.

    Although I am NOT a member of the rescue squad i believe I can help. In order to use the microphone on the Galaxy GS2 you either need a headset with a microphone attached or a bluetooth headset in order to hear your party and talk to your party.

    No need to be a member of the rescue squad to help out, this forum is all about members helping members. We actually only have 1 RS member with a gs2 at the moment. So any advice from someone is greatly appreciated,whether they are RS, senior members, members or just a junior member. Were all the same

    I currently have sprint's version of the galaxy s2. I understand that the microphone is automatically muted, but i want to know how to disable that feature so that it doesn't mute when i plug in my headphones. My old smart phone didn't automatically mute the mic and i find it very silly and illogical for my galaxy2 to not have a way of disabling this feature. The goal is to solve this problem and not have to buy headphones with a mic. I'd rather just disable to auto mute function. Anyone know how to achieve this?

    Have you tried using a bluetooth setup? THESHADOW indicated in post#5 that it is a work-around for the problem you've encountered.

    i realize this is an alternate solution, but it's one i'm trying to avoid. I don't want to have to buy any extra accessories, i just want my phone to not auto mute the built in microphone when i plug my headphones in. My HTC hero wouldn't auto mute the microphone and the Galaxy s2 surely has an option to disable the auto mute. That's what i want to find, not a bluetooth or headphones with a microphone on them.

    I'm not sure if you're correct on that last point, about the SGS2 having an option to turn the auto mute feature off, but good luck in looking for it.
