    My iPhone just got dropped like 10 minutes ago. Now it is saying the accessory that you are using is not compatible with the iPhone. I am not using a accessory though. The ringtone is working but the calls are not coming through. It's acting as if I am using a accessory when I am just trying to call someone. I am at my wit's end. I can no longer make or receive phone calls. I would just like someone to tell me something to do. I don't even know how much it will cost if I need it repaired and during that time I will not have a phone. Any advice or numbers would be of great help to me.

    Try a reboot, it might go back to normal, but you may have damaged the hardware somehow. Other than that, do a DFU restore and be prepared to take it into the store.

    I just went and did a restore through iTunes. I am loading some music on to it in a vain effort to see if my headphones/mic will make the thing work. As far as accessories I don't have any so I would have to go to like a Walmart and see about that. I am going to do a Cold reboot if my crazy headphone thing does not work.

    Uh, you're kind of doing things out of order, but okay. :)

    Make sure the dock connector has no dust or debris in it.

    If you don't have an accessory, just plug and unplug your sync cable a few times.
