Charging problems and questions


Distinguished Member
Bit worried about my iPhone/charger. I bought what I thought was a decent wall charger off which stated it was 3Gs compatible. Seemed to work ok when I bought it but now my iPhone tells me 'this charger is unsuported'. I wiggled it a bit and it then started charging fine, or so I thought. After about 3 hours it was still charging but had only reached about 65%. I also noticed that the back of the iPhone had become quite warm.

So is there a problem with my iPhone?

Is something wrong with the charger?

Are there any known issues?

Are all 3g and 3gs charger the same?

Do you not have the original iphone charger? Or at least get one to try? Surely if the original charges no problem then its the new one you've bought?
