Default headphone jack shorting out???

ok so not sure if it is a water issue or what, i took the phone in the shower this morning, had my music player going, and hell it is supposed to be water resistant right? well a few hours later i noticed that the "headphones connected" icon was on and my music player was going (no sound obviously since it thinks headphones are connected) it keeps coming back on and every time it does it thinks headphones are connected and starts to run my music player..... could this be a water issue, not thinking so, we all saw videos of these things in a pool, maybe software related?

Anyone tested the water resistance, did it work fine after that or did you have any issues? The problem seems to have corrected it self now, I hope, just don't know if it was from the water or something else

Yeah, I just saw that too, very disappointing, that headphone jack issue is a BIG problem, battery drain and functionality hit hard

Well, that wraps up my debate on whether or not to test the water-resistance feature....

yeah, i mean it is nice that it is waterresistant, incase you spill something on it, but it thinking you have headphones plugged in, turning on the mp3 player, and not letting me use the speaker was a bit of a buzz kill
