Wow. This does really suck. I'm pretty disappointed in Apple. Definitely not a deal breaker, Apple could just about announce that it doesn't make calls at this point and I'd get it, but very disappointing nonetheless.

I think the problem is that it is recessed. If you look at any of the third party adapters you can see the issue.

For instance, the bit between the metal and the gray plastic of this belkin adapter... all of that light colored bit is apparently recessed. :(

Here's another example in chrome...


BTW, the size of the jack is 3.5 mm. (images from ilounge reviews)

We are still buying the iPhone with no 3rd party apps or ringtones or even 3G but we at least wanted a real headphone jack

so do regular headphones that would work in an ipod work on this without any adapter?
