Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
A couple of days ago I noticed that in the morning (after my iphone was plugged in overnight for at least 8 hours) my phone was only displayimg a little less than half of the battery was charged (before I unplugged it). It has gotten worse day by day since. Now it won't charge or sync. It is plugged in next to me right now and the screen is blinking from dead to the tiny sliver of red in the battery with a lightning bolt beneath it. Is there an iphone battery problem like the ipod one from a few years ago? I need my phone for work 7 days a week, what do I do?
I've looked for others with the same problem as you, and I haven't found anything.
I have a few things for you to try, they're rather simple so you may have already thought of them.
First thought, try a different iPhone to USB2 cord.
Try a different type of iPhone charging unit, i.e., car charger, wall charger, etc... Best way to gain access to the more options would be at an Apple Retail store, at least you'll know that the cord you're trying definitely does work.
If the iPhone does connect to your computer, but won't sync or charge, see if you can get it to "Restore".
If you can't get it to recognize your iPhone at all, take it to an Apple Retail store and have them play with it at the Genius Bar.
If you're feeling DIY, try cleaning the contacts on both your iPhone and its cord with some denatured alcohol on a Q-Tip.
If you would like to phone or email me, please feel free. Dan Crowley, 919.280.3101 iKnowApple.com
