My iPhone 4S will not charge unless it is switched off.  This happened suddenly with no other symptom several weeks ago.  If I plug the charger in, while powered on, the phone doesn't appear to detect it has been plugged in and the battery icon doesn't change its display to show charging.  Charging only happens when the phone is powered off completely.


I did some searches for this type of problem and saw it has happened to a few with earlier version iphones, but didn't see any published solutions.


A visit to the local Apple store didn't help either as I was told had to make an appointment; can't make an appointment for awhile because out of the country and no Apple stores where I'm at.


This is a very annoying problem.  Anyone else have this happen and have a fix?
