    Hi,
    when I have my iPhone 3GS connected to my work PC, I'm getting quite often electric charges when I touch the iPhone ...

    Is this ok ??

    And when you plug it into your wall-charger does it happen the same?

    If the phone charges you, I think this is not ok :)

    I'll try at home but I don't think so. I never had this problem at home.

    At work I also use a USB extension, maybe I should try without.

    if you used a wallwart at work, same would happen, a usb extension at home, nothing would happen.

    Welcome to the works of static electricity, and dont worry about the shock, the only harm it does is the little jolt you get at the office (no sleeping at the ofice for you)...
