Thread: Modifying 4th gen remote to fit iPhone

    Default Modifying 4th gen remote to fit iPhone
    I had no clue where to post this, but I have a 4th gen remote for the iPod. The remote is the one that you plug your headphones into and can control the Play, Forward and Back buttons. I attached the picture of the unit, but I was wondering if I could modify it to fit the iPhone. I know it is a long shot, but was wondering if anyone knew. Thank.

    Lol that's not an iPod remote, it's a PSP remote. And it won't work with your iPhone

    The headphones that come with your phone have a remote button it. If you've lost them, you can buy replacement iphone headphones (like, for cheap -- I bought some for less than $10 that sound "ok") that have a remote button on it. It's only one button, but it does a lot of things:

    Pause Play back/Resume Playback/Answer Phone/End Call

    Depending on whether phone is ringing, you're listening to music,etc -- also it will skip to next track if you press it twice. So you get Play/Pause, Next Track, Answer/End Call all from one button. I bought mine from (one of its affiliate stores). It was like 6 bucks + 4 shipping and only took a few days to get to me . . .

    And of course there's the more expensive models with the same button -- some reviews of those in the accessories review forums.

    I assume you probably still have your original headphones though, so I wonder why you need more? The only thing you'd gain is the ability to go backwards a track instead of forwards.
