It's really annoying me!
It only started happening 2 days ago.
When I plug my iPhone 4 in to charge, either through the wall or plug the USB into the laptop, I'll get the same message, " Charging is not supported with this accessory". and it'll stop charging.
I don't understand why. It'll work eventually but I have to pull it out and in a few times and not touch the phone until it's fully charged otherwise it'll stop charging and that message will pop up again.
I put my phone on charge last night and went to sleep. Woke up this morning and my phone was off! Dead! It didn't charge because this happened to it. I don't get what it is.
Could it be I need a new charger? Because to be honest, the part that slides into the plug is bent a little and has rust and dirt inside it but I can't clean it because I can't get inside it. And the lead where the part is where you plug into the phone is a bit messed up but I haven't had a problem with it since 2 days ago.
I've searched up this question by other users and some of them are having this problem even after buying a new charger lead for it. So I don't think it's the charger, but maybe it could be. Idk..The nearest apple store is an hour away from me and I'm not insured. Plus this phone is recently new. I payed £120 for a replacement one because my other one was smahed to peaces so I don't understand why it's doing this. But they didn't give me a new charger though. I've had the same charger since I first got my iPhone beginning of 2011.
Could it be that? Please help!
