    Just so people know. I tried to put my iphone 3g in original bose sounddock and it worked fine but it says on the screen the accessory can't charge it. Anyone else have this and are there any workarounds?

    There are tens (may end up with hundreds) of posts about various devices or chargers not working with the 3G iPhone. As noted in this forum post (which references the USA Today review), it appears that Apple has finally removed legacy support for Firewire-based charging. If the device used the Firewire pin-out instead of the USB pin-out, the device will no longer charge the 3G iPhone.

    There are rumors of an adaptor coming at some point to address this.
