My wall charger was working, I plugged the usb cable into my computer, synced up, charged a while, then went back to the wall charger, and it isn't charging.

Tried resetting....wall charger is not hot or anything...all cables are secure....

iPhone still charges when attached to the computer.

iPhone, MacBook Pro Mac OS X (10.4.10)

    Perhaps a bad AC wall adapter? If you're able to stop by an Apple store, they'll check it out for you and replace it if necessary.

    I'm sure they would swap it out, but it just happened within a matter of minutes...it was working, then not...

    the only thing I did was put the alarm on while not in the cradle (wall)....

    very strange. Will bring it to the Apple Store for an exchange.

    I was having similar issues with my USB charger. Got all the way the apple store, they tested it and it worked just fine. Wasted trip, but the only thing that I could guess was closing the prongs and opening them again fixed some connection issue.

    My charger is acting up too... In fact I have another iPod USB charger that won't charge my iPhone either. They both look exactly the same but neither will charge the iPhone. My computer will charge it fine.

    Same thing happened to me, but all I had to do was pull the USB cable out of the small charger brick (that goes into the wall plug) and replace it a few times to get the electrical contact working. I think there just may be a coating of something on the electrical contacts from the manufacturing process.

    Same issue. Must be the charger. Too many of us are having charging problems for this to be a couple of bad chargers.

    I'm having the same issue as well. It appears to be isolated to the power block as I can use the USB on my computer and it's fine. I tried plugging in my iPod to the USB and power block and that wouldn't charge either. I called the Apple store in MASS that I drove (for 4 hours) to get my iPhone and they were more than happy to have me come back to swap it out. I will the next time I go to the Apple store but in the meantime I bought a new block at Best Buy and all is fine. Seems to be a common issue though. I wonder if Apple will replace them once the complaints get loud enough.

    Purchased two 8 gig sku's, one for myself and another for a friend. The first night I used the wall charger and it worked fine. I tried two days later and no response from the iphone. I can now currently only charge using the usb on the pc (same cord works). My friend just called me detailing the same problem. There is something wrong with the bricks.

    i have the same issue.

    Same problem
    Last night I had to use my 'ipod mini' firewire-connection AC plug (the iphone/ipod connection is the same, and it worked fine) to charge because the new USB plug would only work thru the computer and the cradle- the new brick seemed to be just that- a brick!
    but tonight, it worked again, just like before. I was figuring maybe it was something with the plug on the power strip I was using- didn't realize other folks had the same problem.

    Same problem here. My brick supplies power about every other second, resulting in an annoying beep when the power comes and goes.

    count me in too - my wall charger doesn't work anytmore (it worked fine for the first couple of days, then became fickle, and is now dead), but the USB cable charges the iPhone just fine when connected to my computer.
  • peter_r Level 1 (0 points)
    my charger had worked, then didn't work, then worked, then totally seemed to stop working for two days straight. so, i took the wall charger into the genius bar at the apple store this evening. the guy plugged it in, connected it to my phone, and of course, it worked. he gave me a new charger anyway, and my phone is happily charging now. did anyone else take their charger back? same thing happen?
  • jpoll Level 1 (0 points)
    I'm having same problem. I've tried closing/opening the prongs, plugging and unplugging the USB cable. Nothing works...except to plug-in to my computer and charge the iPhone that way...
