    A few months ago I was away from home without my charger and the only way I had to charge my phone was with a non-Apple charger. I kept getting a "device not supported" message but the phone would still charge. When I returned home my iPhone 4 would only charge up from my Mac and will no longer charge from a wall socket.

    The iPhone has been charged or used for most of the summer. The problem persists and I have tried a full restore "as a new phone", but it still will not charge.

    The Apple USB cable and charger are new.

    Can anyone help?

    Have you tried other Apple chargers AND cables since then?

    Sorry I haven't responded sooner but been crazy busy.

    It turns out it was the socket itself, not the equipment.

    I didn't have any other cable or chargers to test so up until I could buy one. Woke up the following morning with the notion to test it on a different socket - no idea where I got the idea from. :)

    Thanks for the helps, chaps. ;)
