SOURCE: Accessory not optimized with iPhone error message

This actually is not an error. It is just that the accessory your using is really not 100% compatible with the iPhone. But despite that fact, you may still use it for some functions like playing music.

SOURCE: My iPhone WILL NOT stop repeating this message...

Hi,

you'll need to restore your iphone to factory settings -

Use the following steps to restore your device:

  1. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update.
  2. Connect your device to your computer.
  3. Select your iPhone when it appears in iTunes under Devices.
  4. Select the Summary tab.
  5. Select the Restore option.
  6. When prompted to back up your settings before restoring, select the Back Up option (as seen in the image below). If you have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.

  7. Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (as long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your phone).
    ht1414_04--restore_dialog-002-en.jpg
  8. Once the restore process has completed, the device restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up:
    ht1414_05--restored-002-en.jpg
    iPhone only: For the iPhone only, after a restore, the iPhone displays the "Connect to iTunes" screen. Keep your device connected until the "Connect to iTunes" screen goes away or you see "iPhone is activated." If iTunes does not have an Internet connection, you cannot complete this step.

  9. The final step is to restore your device from a previous backup. Once your device is restored and-in the case of the iPhone-in the process of activating, you should be able to see the following in iTunes:
    ht1414_08--set_up-003-en.png
    Select the backup you want for your device and select the Continue button to complete your device's restoration.
If you do not want to restore from backup, select "Set up as new..."

SOURCE: My iphone 3gs 16gb keeps

you should try to clean out the headphone jack, and the charger part on the bottom
try going to an office supply store like staples or office depot, and buy a can of computer duster, it is compressed air which really helps to get the stuff out
another thing to do is to hold the home and lock button at the same time for about 10 seconds until you see the apple icon, then release and it should be back to normal

SOURCE: this accessory is not optimized for this Iphone

You must be using an accessory that is not an official Apple accessory. Just dismiss the pop-up and continue using it if it functions properly.
