    hey all,

    I'm having an iPhone 4, I keep getting 'charging isn't supported with this accessory' I think it's because it was exposed to a dense environment, and when i plug in the charger it keeps getting disconnected.

    Oh well I was wondering if I could stop it from popping out.

    You're answers would be kindly appreciated :)

    I would get a new charger. Although, I'm not sure what you mean by a "dense" environment?

    Didn't fully understand your post..
    Firstly is this an apple branded charger that is throwing up the not supported messages, or is it a 3rd party accessory?
    And can you elaborate on what you mean by a "dense" environment, at first I thought you might have meant humid, but we need you to clarify.

    It's an apple branded new charger and I meant humid.*

    when I lock the iPhone and plug in the charge a triangle comes up with a ! that says*'charging isn't supported with this accessory'*

    Apple is notorious for tweaking stuff in the phone so that you can use their chargers only. I had an iPhone 3G car charger that worked fine when used on a 3G but didn't work at all when trying to charge my iPhone 4.

    Check and see if your iPhone's bottom charging/syncing port opening is clean, maybe use a toothbrush and gently brush away any dust/debri. It might have gotten dirty resulting in the warning.
