    Default "This accessory is not made to work with iPhone" pop-up

    Hi -

    I've got my (unlocked) iPhone sitting in the dock (connected via USB to my laptop). I've got iTunes installed, but it's not running. (iPhone was plugged-into dock just to charge via usb).

    Every several minutes, my iPhone will 'wake up' and pop-up a dialog box with:

    This accessory is not made to work with iPhone.
    Woule you like to turn on Airplane Mode to reduce audio interference (you will not be able to make or receive calls)?


    (I have the option "Yes" or "No")

    If I just let it sit (or, if I hit "No"), the pop-up will go away. But, it'll come back several seconds or minutes later.

    It *seems* to be related to how active I am on my laptop. I've never noticed it when I have the iPhone disconnected from the dock.

    My computer (laptop) has WiFi, but doesn't have Bluetooth.

    Is this some sort of 'interference' over WiFi? Or, is it some strange signal on the USB port causing the iPhone to think an 'accessory' is being plugged in?

    (Has anyone else seen this??)


    Update: I disconnected the dock from my PC's USB port, and instead plugged-into the AC power adapter (iPhone still plugged into dock). I still get the pop-up messages. So, it's not something coming in via the PC's USB port (if anything, it's WiFi or Bluetooth interference).

    Thanks,

    - Paul

    i have the same problem, but only when it is NOT connected to the dock. in the dock everything works perfect. outside, the message pops up every time i want to use the phone and when the message pops up i have no more sounds from the internal speaker. i can not listen to songs from the ipod without a headset and also keyboard klicks and all the other sounds are lost. only an icoming call plays my ringtone.
    anyone any ideas?

    Maybe it's lot of easier to solve that prob if you tell me what apps do you have installed

    Are you using the default Iphone Dock? (the one that came with the package?)

    What about the cable/AC Adapter?

    This message usually pops up with accesories that lack the apple authenticator chip (usually stuff like speaker-docks etc or earlier AV output cables) and to which the GSM module of the iphone would cause interference (think that galloping sound speakers make when a cellphone is placed near them and a call arrives).

    I'm using the default dock and AC adapter that came in the box with the iPhone.

    I've pretty much determined that it's not some sort of interference with WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. I think it's because the 'dock' that comes with the iPhone also has an audio-out jack, so it appears to be an 'audio device'. I'm guessing it's got a flaky connection, so this message comes and goes.

    I also found that sometimes after being plugged-into the dock and later removing it, none of the notification sounds (incoming email, etc) were working. I found this thread over at Apple, which sounds like it could be related:

    http://discussions.apple.com/thread....sageID=5404745

    (Some of these people were seeing 'no audio' when they plugged-in/removed earbuds - I think it's a general 'audio switching' bug).

    I've stopped using the Apple 'dock' for the iPhone - I just plug the USB cable directly into the iPhone (instead of into the back of the 'dock'). Since doing this, I haven't seen the warning message again, and I haven't lost audio.

    same problem
    i get the message when i use the dock (the one that came with the phone)

    if i don't use the dock and connect directly - i don't get the message.

    the solution to this on apple's forum is to restore the phone
    which is kinda strange

    anyone found how to get rid of it?

    I have gotten that message once and that was when i connect




    the line out with this kind of wire



    and i pressed "No" and it never came back yet..


    by the way, i did that so i can hook my iphone up to my car CD player for music instead of burning cd's etc. lol its kind of better. the ONLY reason i do it this way is because i havent gone to the store for the $10 belkon jack thing and this works too.
