Question about Belkin Tunebase FM with ClearScan for All iPods with Bonus USB Sync/Charge Cable, Auxiliary-in Cable... (F8Z959-CC)

1 Answer

3G compatability I just bought one of these. Works like a charm. And what's more it works with an iPhone 3G. I am sure that you are aware that many older iPod adapters and in car adapters do not work with the 3G. That's because Apple have changed the method of charging, or more specifically they have changed the connector. Older adapters cannot supply power to the 3G. So, whilst this Belkin adapter does charge the 3G, I have heard of another possible problem. Apparently some in car adapters provide 10V as the charging voltage, whilst the 3G only requires 5V. Clearly supplying the 3G with 10V would damage it eventually. Can anyone verify the truth of this? And also can anyone tell me if the Belkin Tunebase supplies 10V or 5V? I searched on the net for the specifications but could find nothing. Many thanks. Tony

Keep gettin pop ups on my screen saying! this accessory is not optimised for this iphone you may experience difficulty noise etc as if its plugged into sumthing that doesnt support iphone~ loosing...

Sure, which ever accessory you are trying to use with your iPhone is not compatible. As Apple releases new products, many of their older accessories become not compatible with the new models. Sadly, you will most likely have to replace your old accessory so it works on this version of the iPhone.

Compatibility issues iPhone 3G - JBL On Stage IIIp

hi there, believe it or not, apple has put a authentication chip into newer devices. It won't allow you to play music or display video on devices that are old. Apple wants you to go out and buy new accessories for the new stuff to make more money. My suggestion is to sell it on eBay and use the money to get a newer compatible dock with your iPhone.

The iPhone unfortunately does not pair with just any device, it would be best to check compatibility before purchasing a new peripheral for your iPhone.

No sound on skype iphone calls

Skype is a high data demand application, thus require fast internet connection, at least 3G (384KBs) but for best performance HSDPA (up to 3.6MBs) recommended. Thus iPhone 3G (S) you need. You may try Fring (not sure if it's compatible with iPhone).

Iphone 3G stuck on emergency call mode..

Try to reinstall a jailbroken version of the iPhone OS.
Do not (ever) use reset to factory if you need the device to be jailbroken to function (e.g. in case you are using an officially unsupported operator/plan)
