    My iPhone just started randomly displaying the dialogue box "This accessory is not made for iPhone, would you like to turn airplane mode on?"....nothing is plugged in though! I tried a software restore and to blow out the dock connector area but its still doing it. I'm worried since I can't make it happen on demand they wont help me at the Apple store!

    Anyone else ran into this problem/have a fix??

    If you own a video camera, then tape the problem and bring it into the Apple store. Make sure you bring in your iPhone and on the video, go to the Settings>About to view the serial number. That way they will know for sure that it is yours. BTW, make sure the tape has no cuts so it is a continuous take.
