For some reason my Lumia 900 is stuck on headset mode.. I have pulled the headset out, but I get no volume or mic unless I plug the headset back in..
I have even tried powering down and back up, but it automatically reboots into headset mode..
How can I get it to go back to regular speaker/mic mode?

I am still dealing with this problem..
Is there a Nokia Service Center in the US?
I really neeed to get this fixed and I don't want to send my phone off to do so..
I can only use the phone in speakerphone mode or with a headset plugged in.. I can't play audio or hear games unless the headset is plugged in..

Its probably lint stuck in the headphone jack. Get a flashlight look in the jack.. you can use a needle or very small tweezers to get the lint out that blocking the jack from indicating the headphones are no long plugged in..
Been there done that...

palm treos and pres had issues with the headphone jacks messing up slightly bent pins in the jack etc where the device seemed to think that the headphones were in even they weren't Dont miss that issue a bit!Your smartphone is only as smart as YOU let it be!

After sending my first Lumia900 in for repair because of the headphone jack (and Nokia saying it WAS defective),
my SECOND Lumia 900 now has the same problem!! I am using regular earbuds (not a headset with a mic) just to listen
to music/radio while I mow yards.. The phone stays in my pocket and for the most part stays dust free.. Today I pulled out
my earbuds when I finished mowing, but the phone stayed in 'headset' mode.. I can't hear any audio or talk on the phone
(unless I put it in speaker mode).. DANG IT, I hate this.. :(

I have the same problem in my Lumia 900 also. Really annoying. I think the reason for my problems is that i have dropped the phone many times and the audio jack has taken some unwanted damage.
A quick fix for my problems is that i take a nail slightly smaller than the audio jack, put the nail in, push it gently towards the sim card holder and the headset disconnects. I've ordered a new back casing for my phone because it was cheap ~25€ and it has a new audio jack in it.
I already found a good video from youtube which shows you how to do it. It didn't look too complicated. If i can fix the problem by doing this, I'll post a comment to tell if I was succesful and the problem went away.
