Anyone having issues with the play/pause/next track control on the earbuds? I can control the volume, and if I hold the other button down I can do voice control, but I can't change tracks, etc like I could with the original focus.

edit: after some more messing around, I can get the stock focus s remote to pause and play music with the focus s occasionally, which tells me one of two things: either I have a faulty unit, or the design of the jack itself is screwy. If you look at the jack hole on the focus s, it has a weird elliptical shape, and part of the plug is exposed. Not being an engineer, I have no idea if this would account for the odd behavior, but being a skeptical consumer, I think it might...

I may have spoke too soon. My Focus remote does work, and better than the Focus S earphones but still not consistant. On a side note, on my way home I plugged my Focus S headphones into my old iPhone and they worked perfectly. I tested it out for an hour or so, pausing and playing back and forth, over and over again. It doesnt change volume but I didn't expect it to.

Well that sucks, I was hoping I had a bad phone, but it appears to be a design issue if you are having the same problem. I really like this phone, but I listen to music all the time, and I really don't want to open the phone and manually change the volume, track, etc. I guess it's Titan time for me, whenever at&t gets around to releasing it...

Me too. I really love the samoled screen, but unless Samsung addresses this (roflmao yeah right they haven't even updated all their 1st gen phones to mango) I'll be returning this for a Titan.
In addition, I have a suspicion that this can't be fixed in a software update. The intermittent behavior, combined with the strange looking jack hole, makes me think it's a design flaw. We'll see...
