Oh and also, when I charge my iPhone on my dock, I get the message:
"This accessory is not made to work with iPhone.
Would you like to turn on Airplane Mode to reduce audio interference? You will not be able to make or receive calls."
Which is usually what happens when I charge it with my iPod player, never happened with the dock.
As I started writing this message, I tried to put my phone on the dock, it started to charge, but dit not appear on iTunes. It only happened once, and does not charge anymore.
I am completely baffled... None of this ever happened!
Got the same problem here since 2 weeks.
I searched and googled the whole night..can't find anything about it.
Did you charged it before via a car adapter or something like that?
That's actually when the whole mess started here, i think.
I tried it all, nothing works.
Firewire adapter, other systems, nothing, only via the power adapter it charges.
I guess it will die soon here...
Have you tried without using the dock - with the USB cable connected direct to your iPhone?
Are you connected direct to a USB port on your Mac - not via a hub? Connecting to an available USB port on your keyboard or monitor is considered a USB hub.
If not, have you tried connecting to a different USB port on your computer?
Your cable may be bad, so do you have another cable to use to test if this resolves it?
The iPhone does not have a limited number of charges per se, but it does have a limited number of complete discharge and charge cycles.
Copied from this link.
+A properly maintained iPhone battery is designed to retain up to 80% of its original capacity at 400 full charge and discharge cycles. You may choose to replace your battery when it no longer holds sufficient charge to meet your needs.+
Hey Allan Sampson,
I have tried:
- with dock (with 2 different docks)
- with just the cable from the dock (with 2 different cables)
- with iPod cables
- wall chargers
- with my iPod player connected to my computer (which is the only device that will charge my iPhone, but even connected to the computer, will not sync)
- different USB ports
(And the keyboard doesn't provide enough power for the iPhone to be recognized.)
I even went to an Apple store and tested on a few other iPod/iPhone players.
The guys there told me that maybe it was a pin problem, but they're not sure. And even if it was the case, they say they don't know where it can be fixed... They gave me an estimation price for a pin fix procedure of the equivalent of 200~250 US$.
I don't understand why it will charge on ONE iPod player that I have and nothing else.
Does that means I have to get another phone or what? That súcks...
I've been having similar problems with mine for the past several weeks. It started with the 'accessory not made for iPhone' message and has snowballed from there. I took the phone to the Apple store, but all they did was clean the port, speakes, and earpiece. Now, everytime I power it on, I get a screen prompting me to enter my Voicemail password. I've never had a password for my voicemail. I just enter a random four number code and it lets me in, but the same message pops up over and over again. The Apple store near me is not real convenient to me, so I've had to switch my SIM card over to my old phone until I can get a chance to go there.
Also, regardng charging the battery; mine will charge but the meter on the screen is wrong. I can put it on a charger, but it doesn't indicate it's charging, but when I take it off it seems to have more battery life.
