    Morning Everyone!

    I have started noticing that the lightning port on my iphone 5 has become very intermittent. When you plug in a charger it doesnt always charge. If you wiggle it side to side it eventually catches and charges but if you move it even slightly it stops.

    This happens on every charger. I have tried docks, cables, official and unofficial and it happens on them all.

    Its getting very annoying...last night i put my phone on my dock and went to sleep. This morning i wake up to 10% battery because its not been charging!

    Got the iphone 5 on release day and not had any issues other than sending it to apple recently for the sleep button fault.

    Has anyone else encountered this issue?

    Ignore me...Just stuck a pin in there and gouged about 54 tons of dust out of the port and now it works again.

    Embarrassing...
