IPhone 3G Troubleshoot

Having problems with iPhone 3G docking devices, many devices don't recognize it.

I also have quite a few coverage & reception problems, both of them are very low.

Are these common problems?

Thanks.

Unless the dock is made for the 3g version of the phone rather than the '2g' version it may not work and even if it recognises the phone will not 'charge' the battery this is due to the pins that received the 12 volts of many docks being disconected in the new 3g phone so you have to charge via a usb which uses other pins for this purpose

Iphone does not charging


Try performing a hard reset: Hold the sleep/wake button(power button) and the Home Button for 10-15 seconds, when you see an Apple appear let got and let the device boot up. If it still does not charge try testing the cable, the wall charger, and also plug it into a computer with iTunes to see if it is recognized to test the phone's dock. If the device is recognized try backing up and performing a restore AS NEW, NOT FROM A BACKUP. If the device is not recognized, go to apple.com/support and type TS1538 into the search field at the top right. This will bring you to the troubleshooting article that Apple uses themselves. If all else fails contact your carrier, reseller, or Apple if applicable. Good luck.

Iphone wont charge on Bose iDoc


There are many devices that worked with the original iphone that will not work with the 3g. Be sure that when you buy docking stations that the Iphone 3gs is included in the list of supported devices.

Washed my iphone a few weeks ago, finally turned it on and everything works great except the dock, can't sync with computer or charge from the wall. I put it on my friends dock and it says charging is not...


Well Im sorry to say, your phone is ruined. By washing it you ensured the entire device was soaked.
The components are not water proof. If you even tried to charge or turn the phone off while anything was still wet inside, you would have shorted it out as well.

You will more than likely have to get a new one, If you had phone insurance that would cover it I just would not tell them you washed it.

Im sorry about your mishap, I wish you the best of luck.Thank you for stopping by Fixya!

IPhone 3g Connection Problems


AT&T doesn't have good 3G service. Often you may find that you do not have 3G reception, and the phone switches to EDGE. This is not a problem with the iPhone. I live in a metropolitan area, so I do not experience problems, since 3G coverage is good. However, when i travel around, often i go to EDGE as well. Like i said this is a problem with the network and not your phone.
