    Well I knew it had to happen sooner or later. My luck with Macs is bad and my luck with customer service (and yes I am nice to them) is even worse.

    My iPhone tonight, as I laid myself down to sleep, decided not to charge. In fact I first plugged it in to my computer and the MBP read something along the lines of: The device plugged in to the USB port is not regulated for this power. This USB device will be disabled.

    I unplugged it and plugged my iPhone into the wall charger. Nothing. After about a minute of plugging back in and and out to see if something wasn't connecting I got the generic message about turning on Airplane mode.

    I doubt any one has had this problem, but if you have or have heard of someone having it, please chime in and tell me if you found a solution.

    Tomorrow I will take it to the apple store. Tomorrow will be the 3rd time taking the phone back :eek::eek:

    i had a charger related issue recently... I was at the Hilton Waikoloa on the Big Island of Hawaii for the past week. The night i got there i used my phone pretty heavily before going to sleep thinking i could always charge when im done... but as i would soon find out for some reason my phone would not charge no matter how many working outlets i tried. I have used the same charger to charge my iphone about everyother day since i got the phone on june 29th. But as soon as i got home today i plugged it in and it charged just fine. very weird. I dont know if the charger does not liked to be plugged directly into the wall, because i have a Monster surge protector at my house. I called apple care and they said that it should work directly from the outlet. Now my problem is that i cannot get itunes to recognize my iphone and i dont know how to restore it. If anyone could help me with that problem i would appreciate it!

    call up apple. They sent me a replacement charger because they told me the outlet has nothing to do with it and that they are having a lot of problems with their chargers. They are going to mail it to me so if getting to an apple store is a problem for you, you dont have to worry.
