    My phone was dropped in some Salsa (I know, right lol). Anyway, after it happened I would get random "This accessory is not compatible with the iPhone". I cleaned the port with a plastic tooth pick and that stopped that message from popping up. However, when I connect my iPhone to a dock sometimes it will connect and sometimes it will not. Example, When I connect it to the dock in my car, I can control the iPhone though the radio but for after a second or if I hit a bump on the road it will stop. If I can get it to stay in there just right, it will work for a while. I know it is bad to clean it with rubbing alcohol because of the moister sensor but I took the chance to see if it would help. It didn't do anything. I was hoping some of the iPhone users in this forum might could guide in the right direction..

    Thanks for your time!

    Replace the dock connector (might be a waste of time) or get a OOW replacement for $199.
