Iphone 4s gives out minor electrical shocks while charging and touching the top edge.

It feels like tinkling/buzzing in the finger. The same thing with my daughters Iphone 4s.


Someone else having this issue?

    This is so weird I've just had the same experience last couple days I've lent on my phone and it's given me a shock it's like a pinch feeling . when you rub it at the tob it's all static??

    The shocks are caused by the ungrounded power adapter.  Although annoying, the electrical current is below the international safety satandard, and is safe.

    Sensation of electric shocks is associated with withdrawal from serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors (type of antidepressants).
