    Default iPhone won't charge suddenly!!??

    I don't know what's going on, but tonight I plugged in my iPhone (to the A/C adapter at first) and it refused to charge. This is an unlocked 1.1.1 iphone that I upgraded from 1.0.2 several days ago. It did give me a message at one point as I jiggled things around about not recognizing the device or something like that? I tried to connect to my PC (and then to my Mac laptop) via USB and no go on either of these.

    Everything else is working fine. I can still SSH/SFTP in, apps are working fine.

    I read in several threads that some charging problems were associated with lockdownd, but I double checked and re-replaced that file with the 1.1.1 patched version and reloaded the charging service via UIctl. Just to double check, I tried loading the unpatched original 1.1.1, which stops my SIM card from working, but the phone still wouldn't charge, so I'm not convinced it's a lockdownd problem.

    I tried getting the phone into restore mode to talk to my computer. There is ZERO communication between my PC and the iPhone though. At one point about 25 mins ago I was able to briefly get the connected then disconnected ping sounds from my PC by screwing with restore mode stuff (holding power/home for 10 seconds, then just home after that etc.) but I wasn't able to actually get it to restore. I have been unable to replicate that again since.

    Help!!! My battery level is low so I only have a bit before it totally dies. Am I missing something? Is there anything else I can do? I don't believe it's my hardware, especially after reading of several people with similar issues that didn't seem to be broken hardware, but their issues were all either PC charging or A/C charging wouldn't work, mine is both right now. The fact that I did briefly get it to bleep-bloop implies that it's not totally fried.

    Any suggestions??? I am at a loss - I have looked at the threads which all suggest some lockdownd issue (which I've already verified is okay - unless somebody has a copy of the 1.0.2 lockdownd they want me to try?). Once the battery dies I'm afraid I'll be screwed.

    Make sure you computer is running applemobiledeviceservice.exe

    You could try and complete reinstall itunes, removing ALL apple software first on PC

    Thanks guys, turns out there is something physically wrong with my iphone cable - I just got to work and plugged my iPhone into my laptop using my coworker's dock and it's charging and talking to iTunes again.

    Sometimes the simple solution turns out to be the right one!
