I was having troubles with my iPhone 3G where I was able to listen to music and hear people when they called me, however they were not able to hear me nor was I able to use the inline controls for the headphones. went through three different sets thinking it was the headset. I called Apple and my phone was out of warranty and would cost me $300 for the assessment and repair of the jack. The Guy at apple Care suggested to stick a toothpick in the jack to see if anything came out.

Surprise a load of lint came out and my headset and jack now work fine!!

Thanks Apple Guy!! :D
