My mic doesn't work when my earbuds are plugged in

Whenever I plug in my earbuds my microphone doesn't work. I can hear the person I'm talking with but they can't hear me. Its worked a few times so I know that it can work.

So my headphones work perfectly fine, except the mic. I can hear perfectly from the earbuds but whenever I make a video or call someone, all they hear is a buzzing sound. I don’t know how to fix it… does anyone know I i could

"So to start off with, at least you headphone jack is working and not stuck in headphone mode which can be a P.I.A. I know this is possible because I have a audio jack I take phone calls with with my car and people can hear me through one of the 3 microphones.

1. Let's test to make sure all of your microphones are working. Take two quick video and say test or something on both the front and rear camera. Playback and confirm you have sound.

2. If you haven't deleted it with the new IOS, go into voice memo and click the upper right corner of the screen with the sound icon, it's a little buggy since IOS 10 so toggle it from blue to white a couple of times to make sure its recording on your lower microphone and test the lower microphone by making a recording. If all three of your microphones work than we can go from there.

Let me know the results!"

Ok. If you read my full post I have you test all 3 microphones without your headphones plugged it. Try all three and post the results.

When you plug in the headphones, you’ll get a pop up that gives you options. Make sure you select Headphone, not Headset. If you select Headset, you disable your internal microphone.
