    Hey - I was in the Carribean and plugged my iPhone into the mains to charge it - when I turned the wall socket on, there was a strange feeling!!

    Try it -

    Plug the iPhone into the mains and turn on. Slowly rub your palm along the underside of the iPhone. do the same with the mains power off.

    Anyone get anything? if not i have a strange iPhone.

    I almost have an (what I can describe) is a 'vibration' as i move my hand along the back of the iPhone.

    Any ideas?

    Kev

    That's normal(I think). The same always happens whenever I charge my iPhone from the wall socket. It happened with the iPod Touch I had too. I've never noticed it when charging via USB though.

    Happens with PowerBooks too. I wondered what it was at first, I closed the lid and felt the bumps. Thought that it was dented at first!

    Must be normal. All the Powerbooks I've come across have done this and mines going on 4 years without a repair or sniff of an upgrade. Must be the magictrons just running around your phone, everytime you feel the "bump" you crushed one.
