I have run into this issue with my iPhone 3GS and my car radio's USB port. The radio has no problem controlling the iPhone via the USB but will not charge. I tested an older mp3 on same USB and it charges just fine. I have no issues charging my iPhone using my apple adapter or using a computer's USB port. Used multimeter and found the radio's USB is providing 5.25 V. Very frustrating. Using os 6.0.1

1. Delete all the applications.
2. Reset the iPod from Settings.
Unfortunately I had to clean all the staff from my iPod in order to have my iPod charging correctly again.
You know ... it is software ... so Q&A is usually run with staff with the default settings.

This brings me to think it may be a specific app that I installed recently that may have caused this. Will try to delete some recent apps, and see if it makes any difference.

If you restored it and it wasn't fixed, and you tried 10 cords, and you still have the problem your phone is BROKEN. If a Restore with new software doesn't fix it, how can it be software?

How can it be the software???? If there is a problem with the software and you restore it using the same software that has a problem to begin with,how can it NOT be the software.

If it's the same software that 250 million iPhones have how come very few of them have the problem?
It's a hardware problem. Either a dirty or damaged connector on the bottom of the phone, water damage, or a bad logic board.

Mr Finch, I don't think 253492 views only on this post means "very few", you can easily find many more posts in regard to this issue.
After hundreds of people like me, have asserted that the phone was working absolutely fine just few seconds before upgrading to iOS 5.1 or later you still insist on the dirty or damaged connector. You clearly are either a blind iFan or get paid by Apple to cover their image.
Apple is an arrogant company that would never admit to have produced a buggy software unless it is something so obvious such as Apple maps flop.
Don't hold your breath for a solution from Apple unless this issue goes to media. I suggest all users having this problem to write an email to tech blogs/magazines and direct them to this and other many posts.
Maybe, just maybe Apple's arrogance would be lowered in favour of user's care.

Well, it may be a software issue for some of you, but it's a hardware issue for me. One connector no longer works, another still does, with the same cord for each.

I have had a 3gs since june, it started with the same message and wouldn't charge. Took it to AT&T, was told it is a hardware issue by them, made an appointment with apple, and was told the same. Was given a new 3gs has worked fine for the last 2 months, now it has started flashing the message when it is not charging. It is still charging as far as I can tell but it is really starting to tick me off!!

Please tell me how did you fix the problem? Did you have your Apple lightning jack cleaned? I think it is a hardware problem, because Apple decided not to make their own official iPhone 5 docks, so I bought a dock that is made in China, but it looks awesome. But the only problem is with the lightning jack, i guees it is cheap made, or, i don't know... But somehow...I can't unscrew the dock, to take out the jack and clean it. Thank you very much!
