    Man, so much crazyness.

    Listen people, iPhones can take voltage inputs from 2 types of sources. Regulated 5 volt and 9-30 volt. Yes, you, read that right: up to 30 volts.

    You're asking me how do I know this? It's in the firewire (9-30, might even be 5 to 30) and usb spec (5 volts only). And that guy who successfully used his computer and firewire cable to charge it proves that too.

    Voltage to the charge lines are not the problem. Heck, many of Apple's G4 and G5 firewire ports provide 28 volts.

    What's killing your phones is either mishandling by you, or the purchase of a crappy dock that may be running too many ground lines to pins that arn't supposed to be grounded, or running power lines to pins that arn't supposed to be receiving power.

    If the dock and power cables you're using are all provided by Apple, they'll work, even if it's 28 volts. If you're sticking it in some dock which looks like some toy built in a sweatshop, who knows. How can you tell? Hmm... well, I guess somebody's going to have to post a web page and have people fill it out.

    All fine, we simply do have to accept that iPhones break sometimes which is not related to Hacking them or to a "different voltage" but just to poor manufacturing Quality standards...

    Certian pieces of kit don't work.. i have a belkin auto adaptor, for my car, and it heated up my iphone, i noticed and unplugged, and have been fine, but had to purchase a different car charger, as i didn't want it to "blow"

    obviously, you know better, and that 12v and 5v are the same thing, and everything you have means everything in the world.... but when people are having issues, and if things don't work.. it means that there is something wrong...

    My sister plugged in a Monster FM Wireless Plus into the iphone and it fried it. screen turned white, crashes all the time. Now it's stuck in recovery mode.

    Any hopes of saving it?

    Default Alpine 9887 Headunit

    I just plug in my into my car's new Alpine 9887 Head Unit with the iPod kit, it fried my phone as well.

    What i personally realised is when you change the mode from , say CD mode to iPod mode, the player will sent a certain amount of voltage to the iPod/iPhone as my iPhone shows the battery charging for a spilt second and then...kaput

    After trying to restore it numerous time with error (1) in iTunes 7.4.x and error (-7) in iTunes 7.3.x, it still doesn't work. Finally I think the hardware give up and I can't even switch it on.

    For those still trying to use their iPhone on iPod Audio Docking Accessories, my "best wishes to you"...

    on my pioneer car adapter it works fine. but a friend just fried his iphone with a dock system from JBL. it wont turn on and not charging anymore.

    i opened the fried iphone and the battery and baseband board are ok but the logic board have a BGA IC at left from ARM CPU that heats a lot when plugged for few seconds.

    take care with JBL products designed for ipod.


    cheers,

    well I used an iPhone with FW 1.1.3 with the BOSE dock that you guys mentioned above (link to BOSE) and it worked and charged just fine... no issues at all. The message did come up when you plug it into the soundDock that it's not compatible and yes/no to turn the airplane mode on. I always hit NO so no calls get missed while the music plays and sure enough the calls came in fine too, to answer them you just pull the phone off the dock.

    also tried a new 16GB one with FW 1.1.4 and it works fine as well...

    just an FYI......

    A friend fried his iPhone. He plugged it in to an Apple Firewire Power adapter (which according to iPhone specs, is okay for charging), woke up in the morning and it was really hot and wouldn't turn on at all.

    A friend of his went to the states a few weeks later, and got it replaced under warranty while he was there.

    To the people saying this problem is BS, sorry to say but you don't know your facts. I've fixed 3 iPhones that were fried this way. You don't hear about it much because Apple will replace them if you are an AT&T customer no questions asked. If you're not, then there's no way you can even think law suit. No contract, no warranty.
    If you're with AT&T or O2, plug the phone into whatever you want. If not, I'd google the thing you want to plug your phone into. Or you will end up paying $200 to fix.

    Plugged my early model 2g into Bose Sound Dock, fried it, got really hot, now won't do anything, not on AT&T or O2, warranty ran out months ago anyway, so guess I should bin it unless anyone has any ideas?

    PS Never dropped, no water, still in pristine condition.
