    Alright, so I have had my plus since last year and all of a sudden it cannot recharge anymore? What the hell? In addition to this, the place where I bought it says that it is no longer covered by the warrenty? I cannot recall making a special warrenty for my phone? Ever heard of two such problems? And what to do?

    Step 1: Try cleaning out the Lightning port with a paperclip or something. You won't believe the amount of dust and lint that gets stuck in there.

    Not so sure about the warranty in Denmark but you should have at least a one year warranty. Have you tried a different cable and charger block? Also check to make sure your charging port is not packed with lint. This can accumulate and stop the connector from making a good connection.

    Alright, tried that - still nothing :/

    I've tried with 4 different chargers, nothing seems to work? :(

    Do an encrypted iTunes backup while it still has power.

    Hmm, dang. Tried a hard reboot? Home + Power?

    As above, get a backup in! Will the cable work for things other than charging?

    Just wanted to say thanks on this suggestion. My plug wasn't "clicking" in, for lack of a better term and sometimes it would charge and sometimes it wouldn't. I just used a paperclip and was SHOCKED at the amount of lint that was in my lightning port. Clicks in perfect now. Thanks again.

    Please don't use a paper clip. Try toothpick or other non conducting probe.
