    Default Problem:"this accessory is not made to work with iPhone"

    After restoring to 2.0 im having the same popup message on my 2 iphones 2gn "this accessory is not made to work with iPhone", and on the second phone the sound is desapired in the iPod app. I already done DFU restors, normal restores, system reset. Nothing helps. And the phone is in a loop. I turn it off, it turns on. Im tired of this problems. And theres no solution to this!

    Had the same w/ my 1.1.3 2G phone. I suspect this has to do with heat/humidity, as I mostly had this during summer or on vacation. Also had ith when charging with a non-standard charger. It also wouldn't charge/chrage very slowly.

    In the end, I basically let it run out of battery, then recharged. This helped atleast 2 times, but every now and then it still gets back and gets stuck in the loop.

    This happens sometimes with both my Apple Bluetooth dock station/travelling cable. The cable is plugged on wall charger, so I just unplug it and plug back to get it working.

    The dock station sometimes works after I unplug it from USB, or I need to shut down my entire computer then power it back in order to get it working.

    About audio, you may try to clean up the ear plug on the phone -- by plugging and unplugging it a couple times, or by carefully using a dustbuster or a vacuum cleaner.

    All acessories made for iPhone have an internal chip, and looks like this chip needs a restart at some times

    Hope you get your issues fixed.

    The thing is its not dusty. When i plug in the av cable the sound comes back, but when i unplug it after a 1min or so it fades away

    Get a bunch of silica gel pouches and drown the iphone in them for a couple of days. That should take care of most of the moisture.

    If you don't have access to silica gel, uncooked rice works pretty well. Just switch off the iphone, put it in a sock made of thin material, and bury it in a jar of uncooked rice for a day or two.

    Edit: This is assuming you've done all the obvious things to dry the iphone like blow drying through the charging port and the headphone jack. Make sure not to use any heat based methods to dry the phone.

    yeah i tried blowing in it and all that stuff, tried putting it in front of the air conditioner (not hot air)
    problem is i'm in college so access to anything is pretty limited. i'll see how it goes and if the problem doesn't fix itself i'll try the rice method
