    I recently purchased an iA5 ihome after getting my iphone 4. I used the ihome for a couple of days with no problem and loved it. However, now when I put the iphone in the ihome dock, a message on my phone says that this accessory is not compatible, which disables me from using any of the ihome functions.

    I emailed ihome and they suggested to ensure that I have the latest firmware on my iphone and to do a hard reset. Both suggestions were done before emailing them and none work.

    The only thing I haven't tried was to restore my phone.

    Any other suggestions??? Right now I have a 99$ clock sitting on my dresser.

    I don't have any suggestions. BUT, I do have the same dock and no issues. I'm running iOS4.1b3 so I can't verify if it worked with the current official releases.

    Thanks Jason. Just weird that it works some days and on the others I get the display message.

    I used to have issues using another dock connector accessory.

    People on here said to give the dock on the iPhone a clean, worked for me. I think some dirt was short circuiting something or not allowing one of the pins to make fully contact.

    What should I clean it with? Just blow into it? I tried blowing into the bottom of the phone but no luck.
