    Hi, I had my iphone connected to my macbook for 2 hours now and its stop charging up.
    I have now noticed its changed from the charging symbol to the solid plug.

    I have also noticed its a bit warm for some reason

    Has anyone else had this problem and fixed it?

    Many Thanks

    since your using the older 3g it may simply be that the battery cannot hold %100 charge anymore. Since its around 2 years old it holds %60-&70 of the original capacity.

    The solid plug means it is fully charged. No more charging needed :)

    Its showing just under 3/4 on the battery gauge though.

    I've left it to cool down for 20mins and plugged it back in, so we'll see how it goes.

    its just below half now, but i have the power symbol showing that its charging :)

    I think you need to take your phone in for a new battery.

    my 3g and 3gs does this too...its over heating because possibly you have a case on it, take the case off.

    the phone gets too hot, so I guess its stops or wont charge

    If your iPhone is still covered under the warranty period, you can take your phone in and get Apple to replace the battery for you.

    Cheers every, This was the case. I took my case off and switched the phone of to let it cool down for a bit. Then plugged it back in without the case and it charged up to full fine :)

    Mine does stop charging sometimes when it's pretty hot, after a while it just starts again.
