I have had my iphone 4s since november of last year. in the last couple days its been doing this really weird thing and its starting to really get annoying. The sound only works sometimes.
For example, if I am watching a youtube video, the sound will go off and the video will pause and even if i restart it the video will play but either it will keep pausing, or it will play and the volume bar disappears and reappears and the sound will go in and out. the weird part is that when my phone rings there is no issue with the sound. Also, when I am playing music in the car and have it plugged in using the headphone jack its fine as well. it seems to only happen when im using an app like youtube, netflix, etc. It also doesnt seem to want to play music when its not using headphones.
Anyone experienced this? if so what fixed it, if anything?
Im trying to stall on going in to get a replacement or get it fixed.
Help me im poor! *as in bridesmaids!*

Mine does that when the video is not “buffered” or loaded all the way. It will stop then when it loads a little more it’ll play, then stop again, etc.

well here is a funny detail I just noticed. I plugged it into the charger and it works. no issues while its charging. As soon as I tke it off it starts cutting in and out again. Its not just pausing its the sound. It happens even with just music only. its the strangest thing. but I guess for now since I found a work around with the whole charging thing, ill just keep doing research. If it doesnt start working properly in a few days ill be forced to take it in.

@stardustintheeyes: I’ve never had that happen before. Hmmm.. I would just swing by the store and get it checked out.

@stardustintheeyes: good good. All of my apple products have had an automatic 1 year warranty, so if you need a (free) replacement this is a good time to get it.
