    Default While charging iPhone no response from screen

    Ok I have bought 3-rd party iPod chargers of eBay (as I am in EU and my iP had a USA wall charger in the box) and I am using them with the iPhone. I have noticed the following though, while using the wall charger:

    Although it charges the iPhone from empty to full in about 2.5 hours, the screen is more or less disabled while plugged in. I can see the "slide to unlock" but I cannot slide it (I try but it does not respond)! The strange thing is that is charges properly, and fully, so no problem with that, but I just cannot use the phone while charging. If I unplug it, it goes back to normal, everything is ok.

    This does not happen if I simply use the usb cable and charge it from my laptop, but I do not have my laptop withme all the time.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Any suggestions?

    strange...

    could it be that my charger is UK 3-pin so I also have to use an adaptor to change it to 2-pin EU-Greek style fuse?

    My solution to the same problem was to get an adaptor for the US charger it is a dual voltage device. Other threads warn of connecting ipod hardware to iPhone unless it is specifically approved. - Sage advice I think.

    Hey fuzzy,

    I'm greek too but I am in the US now. During Christmas while I was in Greece I had no trouble charging my iphone with the US adapter. All you need to buy is a cheap plug adapter (NOT converter). I paid 0.85euros from a greek hardware store.

    The US charger is universal, it will take 220volts with no problem all you need is the plug converter.

    You should close the thread now.

    Apple
    sucks.
    Microsoft rules.


    TurboSIM-like methods? No way.

    - Unlocked Week 47 1.1.3 iPhone, baseband 04.04.05_G.
    - Bought in Minneapolis, MN;
    - Currently on TIM carrier.

    I'm not here to find help. I'm here to help others and give back what I've learned from Hackint0sh.
