IPhone accessory problem

Please help! Since a week ago my iPhone has shown a problem. When I unlock it normally, it shows me a message: "This accessory is not made to work with IPhone...". Then i'm forced to chose etheir turning to airplane mode or to leave it like that. This issue makes unable to here music through the speaker, but not through the headphones.

Then I turn it off and it restarts by itself, and I also tried to reset it and it also restarts by itself. So it won't turn off, and keep showing me the same message.

When I connect it to the dock and play some music, finally I can listen to it. But then I lift it up and shows me the same message.

I've tried to restore it but keeps giving me headaches.

I also noticed something, that since I keep connecting it to the car stereo using the dock, the problem appeared.

I hope someone find the solution.

Merry Christmas to all!

Re: iPhone accessory problem

When the iPhone loses power while playing a song, there was a bug in older firmware that caused all audio to be usable through the speaker only. The solution is to stop the song before you undock the iPhone - or, update your iPhone firmware to the latest.

Hi, you have to press the play button on the top of your device.
please refer to the picture8c737e4.jpg

the button that has a red encircled is the mute button.
everytime you lock your keypad, you have to press that mute button to unlock it
hope that helps

Insert an unlocked???

Try clicking the 'Restore' button on the Summary page in iTunes, when connected to a PC. If that doesn't work, you'll have to take the phone back to an Apple store.
