I can't help trying to find hacks that make my life easier once i get something new. I complained in a previous post about the absence of solution to have your ipod stand still specially when you want to watch a movie. I finally found a solution while i was on a plane looking at my Bose QC3 Headset extension (that i never use). I just plugged it into the iPhone and plugged inside my regular headset as you can see below and it works perfect
Don't worry, no need to buy a Bose QC3 headset, you can find one like this in any store for a few bucks and if you travel you ll enjoy it.
