    Hi All,

    When plugging my 3Gs in a charger at work, the message comes up and takes forever and a day to get a charge going through. When that happens I hold my breath that the message does not appear. This does not happen when plugged in at home ?

    I have tried to read previous forums on this, and have seen something about systems / library / deamons but to be honest I don't know even how to do that. Will that be in my ITunes when I get home ?

    Please help this techno phobe ?????

    One thing I've found, it you have an app running that uses a lot of memory, a cheap charger will throw up that message. Basically, your phone (with rouge app running) is using more power than the charger can supply.

    Had this problem in my car when using Waze. The cig. lighter charger would throw up that message. I bought a beefier charger (that claims to work for iPad too) and message went away and unit charges..
