    So i think my headphone jack is loose, because when i put in my (brand new + several other) headphones they will make the audio quality bad, and its not the headphones fault. So is there anyway to tighten it up? I checked for my warranty and its about two weeks out. Could the pins be pushed/bent back?

    So the main problem is when i am walking with it in my pocket the cable moves (and in turn messes with the quality, and not the normal "bad quality" it sometimes wont let me even hear the music, so i suppose it more messes with the volume.

    Any fix? Thanks in advance. (without opening the case would be preferred)

    OP's request is unreasonable. Either open it up, or buy a new one.

    So... i have found out a little more about what the issue is, I noticed that if i have pressure on the screen it works just fine, but without pressure it seems to bug out. So now is there any way to tighten the screen? I am willing to open. I just need the tools. So if anyone has a list of tools needed to open it and what to do to tighten the screen to the body/ fix the connection?
