I have a brand new Iphone 4.  When I plug in a charger, it cuts off the sound.  I tried it in two different cars with 2 different USB connectors (1 cigarette charger and one USB to my radio).  I don't even have to plug the charger into the power outlet.  As soon as I plug it into the phone, the sound cuts out. 




Any ideas ??

iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.3

    Sound like a cheap charger that's actually wired as a dock. The phone believes it's connected to a docking station and is trying to route the audio through that.


    Get a better charger. The USB connector on the radio probably doesn't directly support connecting an iPhone. Check the manual.

    That's exactly what it was.  Bought a legit charger and it works fine. 


    Thanks for the info.  I guess you really do get what you pay for.
