    Unhappy iPhone neither charges, nor is recognized

    Hey guys,

    I posted this in the hardware section but am not sure whether it is an entirely hardware issue, so here goes.

    This happened out of the blue - My iPhone won't charge (battery indicator doesnt change) with the USB or wall adapter. The cables are fine as the other iPhone I have is charging. Also, when connected to the USB, the computer / itunes don't recognize that its been plugged in.

    I've tried switching it off / on. Nada!

    Now I've switched off the phone since it had very less battery, which I figured may come in handy later.

    Any suggestion?

    I was thinking of putting the iPhone in restore mode and then plugging it in, but since it is not being recognized by the computer, how will I restore it anyway?!

    Please help!!

    ~Thanks

    It looks like a hardware issue to me. As a last resort, I'll try a DFU restore.

    I just looked up how to put it in DFU mode. Apparently it is different from the restore mode. (doesnt boot with mac OS)

    Before trying it out I'd just like to ask if anyone knows whether the iPhone can be brought back out of the DFU mode without the USB recognizing it.

    Thanks a lot AG.

    I tried that but no luck. (though instead of Philips spray, I used Bvlgari )

    Update: GAME OVER! - now that my battery is completely discharged

    Until it charges I can't try anything - dfu, restore etc. Apple store will offer no help since they don't officially sell iPhones here.

    I got this one as a gift, am pretty sure it was purchased in the grey market here (New Delhi). I'll take it with me on my next visit to the US to get it repaired, if the iPhone doesn't release here by then. I should be able to get support from apple here, once its out.


    Dear iPhone,

    It seems that the honeymoon is over. We had a good time this past year. But I did not expect you to bail on me so early. Well thats life.

    Arrivederci iPhone.

    I'll go out and get me a 'reliable' nokia for a few months.
