iPhone wall charger problems

Hey folks I've had my iPhone for a little over three months and just recently I've been having problems charging my iPhone.

I get a message that says "Charging is not supported with this accessory" but my wall charger has worked in the past, though. When I move the phone when it's charging, it shows that it's not charging but it's plugged in. It's strange. Do I need to buy a new wall charger? Thanks.

Any moisture ever on either one? I've heard of similar symptoms after a dunk.

No, I've never cleaned my iPhone.

Definitely a trip to a Genius in your future. Make an appointment and they will figure it out and (I assume) will replace whatever's broken. Don't wait for the one year warranty to run out.

Also, is that HuskerInsanity as in Corn HuskerInsanity?

Edit: I should add that you can visually inspect both the phone and cable for debris.

Or should I go to Verizon where I bought my iPhone? Should I call Apple? I know they carry iPhone accessories although they don't actually fix iPhones. Where I live (Lincoln) they don't have an Apple store which surprises me.

And yes, HuskerInsanity is actually my Twitter handle and corn has something to do it. Follow me if you wish.

Is your sync cable also original?
I had a similar problem using a genuine Apple charger with a 3rd-party sync cable.
When I went back to a genuine Apple sync cable the problem went away.

Yes, this is the original sync cable that came with the iPhone when I purchased it a couple months ago.
