i'll give you a warning here... watch the profanity. both your first post and last post had to be edited. this is a family friendly forum so keep things civil.

as far as why they are breaking that depends on your habits. perhaps the most common is that the cables used in earbuds are generally very thin wire so if the wire gets excessively tangled or experiences much force its quite easy to break the wire which severs the connection and the earbud stops working. another is that its possible to pull the connection loose from inside the earbud by pulling on the wire.

suggestions?
-buy wireless earbuds
-buy earbuds with thicker cables
-carefully wrap up the earbuds after use and keep them in a zip up case

You can't fix them. If you could, you wouldn't be asking how.

How do you know it's your phone? My earbuds live a very hard life. When not in use they are placed in a side pocket in my backpack where they get bumped all day. I get less than a year out of them before they break. I just get the cheap ones and carry a spare set.
