So I keep getting this message that says "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone. Would you like to turn on Airplane Mode??"

The problem is, the accessory is the dock that came with my iPhone! Its just plugged into one of the USB ports on my MacBook. Its not a big deal during the day but last night, the screen kept lighting up the whole room every 30 seconds to tell me my dock was not made to work with my phone.

Anyone else have this problem or maybe a solution??


**Edit: Sorry mods, this should be in the iPhone Troubleshooting forum I think

I think this has to do with the way you plug it in? I know i have gotten it when i only plug part of it in, before its fully on.
