Default S9 and earjack problems

I was just wondering if anyone has had trouble with their jack.
Ex: After a few years of wear and tear, does the jack encounter any connectivity issues?

This is what rendered my Gigabeat useless last year... the contact points in the headphone jack moved too far apart from repeated headphone insertions and removals, and there was no replacement part from Toshiba or even something similar that could be retrofitted into it (at least with my level of skill, which is a little lacking in that area). I would imagine the S9 might encounter that problem too one day, but if you're not abusive with it, it should probably last several years.

Isn't there a "fan made" repair guide?
kind of like the one for P2?

For the Gigabeat? I think I saw one here, but I don't even care anymore, lol. The jack itself is unrepairable and I could never find a comparable replacement so I gave up and got the S9

No, for the S9.
The guide is along the lines of:
"Okay you see this metal thingy and this metal thingy? Put some solder there and it should be as good as new."
Thats the gist of the P2 jack repair guide, btw.

I'm yet to hear of anyone jacking up their headphone jack.
