UPDATE: Update: Episode 2: Attack of the Cables. Briefly to update - I called again, was assured I would get a replacement cable on the Wednesday, which I did. Ended up with no phone for a day. Replacement worked fine for two weeks, until... last night. Put my phone on charge last night, it bleeped/vibrated to confirm it was charging, but this morning - as I was leaving the house, I noticed the battery was at 50%. Got home just now, tried the charger/cable and it is not powering my phone. Fortunately, I have a spare which does work, but this is my second Lightning cable to fail. Hassle I could do without. (and by failure I mean there are no signs of physical damage - they're just not working) OLD POST: Got my iPhone 5 on Friday, worked all ok, but now I'm away for the weekend at a wedding and the cable appears to have stopped charging (fortunately someone else has a working cable so I've got some backup at least until this afternoon). I can't return my phone for an exchange as the O2 store is sold out, and having rung Apple the shipping time on a replacement cable is 1-2 weeks. Seems to be the same on the online Apple Store. Are they for sale on the high street anywhere in the UK? E.g. Apple Stores? If not this a ******* pain in the arse as I don't have another phone to use and have no way to get charge.
