    I have a jailbroken iphone and its unlocked to t-mobile.
    Yesterday was fine it syncd to the computer as a camera or something and itunes was well.

    This morning i plugged it in the phone did turn on but it didnt charge! or open itunes or anything isnt being red by the pc at all.

    Only thing i did was install some apps from either top free app store or some other games

    I plugged it into a vista laptop /without itunes and it started charging as suppose!

    I cant really use that laptop so what can i do??

    Also im using Windows XP SP2

    Also i tried restarting apple mobile services and no luck, also iphone isnt in my device manager

    Sometimes it helps to try a different USB port on the PC, make sure it is a high-powered one.

    If you used a different cable when you connected to the laptop, try that same cable on the XP machine.

    I use the same cord and i have put it in all the slots...

    Also i plugged it in a generic usb hub I belive its charging then again i dont.

    SHows a black screen with battery with charge symbol

    and when i unplug it it shows a plug+ charge symbol

    but really isnt increasing in battery .


    but still isnt being red

    I think i diagnosed the problem!

    But its funny and weird..

    I Unplugged like i was told ~Moi un Mouton

    Plugged into a usb port and funny i heard the sync noice/charging noise.

    I figured some odd reason evertime i plugged it into the computer it didnt get pushed in all the way..

    causing it not to work...also i cant really move the phone around in this condtion too.

    Looks likes buying a wall charger seems the way to go..

    Thanks ~Moi un Mouton
