Not one problem, but three!
Long story short, I was at walmart and I noticed they had iPod dock stereo and being always curious that I am, I decided to plug in my iPhone to hear the quality/etc. Once I plugged it in, a message popped up real fast saying, "This device cannot be used..." or something along that line. I didn't think much of it then unplugged my iPhone and left. When I got home, my phone started acting up.
First, my mic went out.
When I call a person, I can hear them fine, but the person on the other side was telling me that it sounded like I was in a cave and the phone was cutting off. I thought it was bad connection, but I had all 5 bars and so did the person on the other line.
Second, my phone would charge on my macbook, with my car charger and wall charger. Now even when plugged in, the phone would not respond as if nothing's plugged in.
Third, I cannot turn OFF my phone. When I turn it off, it turns back on again.
My battery is now at 45% give or take few % and I cannot charge it to save all data nor connect to my itunes, cannot restore, cannot turn off.
Worst of all, I cannot take it to mac store and have them fix because it's running on T-Mobile and jailbroken.
If anyone can fix this problem, I will pay you or if someone's interested in buying and fixing it for themselves, they are for sale as well!
Have you tried to do a hard reset (pressing and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds)??? I revived my ipod nano with this method after I put in no compatible dock speakers. Aslo you can try to put iphone in DFU mode and restore the firmware. You lose the data but is the best way to know if you have a software or hardware problem.
If the hard reset don't solve your problem, some hardware could be broken. There are a lot of post about some people that fried the logic or communication board after put the iPhone in no compatible dock speakers. You can search in internet about some no-official iphone fixing sites like iFixit: iPod, iBook, & PowerBook Parts and Accessories, maybe you can find one in your country.
Unfortunately, I sold my iphone cause I got fraustrated.
Turns out, my phone was "bricked" and very easy to fix by a mechanic.
Sold for $150, now the guy is reselling my phone on CL for $270.
