Hey guys. I have a stupid question here, but I really want to know the answer. Why does my phone radio only work when the earphones are plugged in?

Is it a Samsung model by chance? I had one that did that a few years ago. When I asked customer service, the answer was that the phone jack doubles as an antenna. No laughing from me, the issue bugged me enough to call customer service. I thought that it was my fault, like I had hit a wrong button that messed up my phone.

Hi, That is the answer. For some reason using the jack to connect to other gear (like an amp) doesn't act the same.

Good Listening

I certainly wasn't laughing because I'm one of those people who did wonder about that even though I didn't bother to try and find out the reason. It's great to finally know.

I had to find out what it was we were not supposed to laugh about, but after reading your question, I couldn't help the laugh that escaped from me because I remember wondering about the same thing some time back, only I was too shy to ask anyone because I didn't want to look dumb... Very Happy
