Try opening itunes before you connect iphone 3g. It should recognize it instantly. Also, notice if the display on the iphone changes. If it does then it means windows does recognize it.
You should also try using another port (most PCs/Laptops have atleast 2 hi-speed ports). Otherwise i suggest you ask apple support directly via http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1495

Iphone wont charge


That is about the amount of time when my 3GS stopped charging. The USB charger through the computer stopped working on all computers, and my wall charger for some reason continued to work sporadically. I changed the entire charging dock and that fixed it right up!

My G3 phone is flashing the apple symbol while powering up but isn't powering up.


Thank for contacting Fixya, I will be glad to assist you.

What you can do, in order to resolve this issue, is start by resetting your iPhone 3G.
(Note: this does not remove any settings, data or media you have installed in your device)
• To perform a hard reset, press and hold your Sleep and Home Menu buttons for approximately 10 seconds.
• Once your screen goes black, release both keys. (If you see a white Apple logo before you release the keys you have held the keys to long and will need to start the reset process once again)
• The next screens you should see after the black screen, is the Apple logo screen followed by the main screen.

• This hard reset process should help bring your iPhone 3G back to normal functionality.

It would also be advisable to connect your iPhone 3G via its docking cable and provided wall socket adapter into a working wall socket in order to try and charge it.

If your iPhone 3G still does not charge, try connecting it with the docking cable to your computer or laptop to observe if it will take a charge then.

Should this process also not affect the way the iPhone charges, then you should look into using or purchasing another iPhone docking cable, as the cable itself may not be functional and needs to be replaced.

Docking cables for iPhones are fairly inexpensive (Under $20) and can be found in most electronics/computer stores that carry Apple products and accessories.
(Link: Apple Dock Connector)

Finally, if a replacement docking cable does not help the iPhone 3G charge, this may be a hardware issue and you would be advised to take the iPhone 3G in to your local Apple retail store or Apple Authorized Service Provider in your area.

How do I charge my new iphone 16GB?


Your new iPhone comes with a USB cable and a wall charger in the box. If you don't have a computer, you can plug the wall charger to any socket in your house and connect your iPhone to the wall charger using the USB cable. However, if you have a computer, you can plug the USB cable to any USB slot from your computer and connect it to your iPhone.

You can also charge your device from any iPhone dock, or even those docks attached to your home theater system.

Sometimes my Iphone will not charge when i connect it to the wall charger. I just bought my iphone a couple of months ago.


If your iPhone is not charging when you plug it into a wall charger or into you computer's usb port, this is a usb connectivity issue and the connection just needs to be reset. All that needs to be done is plug the iPhone's cable into the phone but don't plug into the computer yet. Hold the phone's select button (the round button with the square) down for about 30 seconds or until the apple appears on the screen. your phone will reload and reset the connection and the computer should recognize the device. Allow the phone to charge for at least 30 minutes before unplugging.

Iphone usb not recognize and not charging


Try plugging it into the wall, if it charges when being plugged into the wall, then it is a problem with the USB port on your computer.
Try updating the usb ports on your computer or reinstalling itunes.
Trying different ports and different cables may also help.

Apple Iphone wont's communicate with communicate with computer.


Hi,
The iPhone at present cannot be paired with anything other than a Bluetooth headset or some hands-free car systems. You cannot sync to a computer via Bluetooth, even though they may recognize each other as existing.
Not to be argumentative, but there is nothing you can do with your iPhone and MacBook Pro, as the underlying Bluetooth profiles such as OBEX (or OBject EXchange) Object Push, OBEX File Transfer and DUN (or Dial Up Networking) do not exist on your iPhone.

An iPhone is not intended to be paired with anything other than audio devices as specified in your user guide.

pls rate my suggestion...
