    Don't connect as tv out ahah - when you plug them in the options should popup - from that choose either headset or headPhones - whichever is visible should sort things out

    hmm tried all the things.. even when I select it then also its the same story... also Headphones is the default option set already still the same problem. Called Nokia care afte 20 mins of strugle they told if your headphones have mic then they wont work with 5800 I didnt believe that though

    Run it through an adaptor?

    Tried the one given by Nokia itself still no go I got these new today for 13 Pound deal in Play.
    same type wasted money on Jbuds. also tried Bose also ...all no go..

    Hmm my sennheissers work fine... And they have a mic on them (although the mix doesn't work with the phone)...

    Determine which is faulty - the phone or the headphones (might be neither)

    1. Plug in some other headphones into the phone and see if they work. If other headphones don't work either, then you've got some sort of problem with your phone. Could be hardware related (which would require a replacement phone) or possible some software glitch (try a factory reset)

    2. Try your Skullcandy headphones with something else (mp3 player, computer, hifi... whatever). If they don't work, then you need to get them replaced

    If both work fine on their own then the handshake must not be present between the headphones and phone

    you can press the button on the mic, then plug in the headset and you can select it as earphones. but you have to hold the button to hear the right sound, so i did it with adhesive tape.

    Man thats true.. I got to know before by trail and error. But I cant do it all the time nor the adhesive looks very bad :(. let me know what else needs to be done and also. Is it the same with Bose headphones with MIC also? what exactly is the problem with Nokia is it the Firmware?

    you can kinda lyk half insert it
    the same way i used my nokia headphones for my laptop
    instead of fully inserting it just insert it till 3/4 th u ll still get the option of headphone etc
    2nd method insert it fully and start pulling it out slowly until you can hear clearly
    and by the way NOKIA SUCKS !!

    Try using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm adapter to your earphones which nokia supports.. you can find one on ebay
