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 was thinking this is kind of a bummer too considering I just spend $500 on earbuds and headphones but I can just buy the adapter so it should be fine.

Enter the third party accessory support

Seriously, how much would the part be? Like 2 dollars?

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)

From what I've understood, the iPhone comes with iPod-like earbuds, and in the iPods, any ol' earphones will do, so I believe any earphones will work.

What about the stereo bluetooth headsets? They should work for the phone but will they work when you are in ipod mode?

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?
