iPhone Dummy Plugs – Stop Dirt and Pocket Lint from Attacking Your iPhone
Looking a little closer at the iPhone, I noticed that the headphone jack is not only recessed (big boooos) but isn’t completed sealed. Peer deep into the headphone jack’s hole whilst the screen is illuminated and you’ll notice light peaking through. What does this mean? Well, according to a few forum folks with similar devices (i.e. PDA/MP3), it means dirt and lint in the iPhone’s inner workings, and even worse under the LCD screen. After searching, and trying to deciphers this sites link structure, I’ve tracked down an iPhone serial port plug for about $10 shipped from a company called Protectorz via Radtech. As for the headphone jack I have had to resort to some ‘ghetto ass shit’. We’re talking ‘pencil eraser’ chopped down to fit. I’ll post pics later (pics have now been added), but its a good work around until something is officially developed. Plus its crazy cheap.
