    • my iphone4 keeps making the charging noise every 5 seconds and wont turn on or is not recognized by the computer and this aint help at all

  1. OMG my iPhone suffered from water damage and I didn’t want to tell my mom bc my previous one was stolen and just got replaced about a month ago. I can’t hear music sometimes so I tamper with the dock connector (stupid on my part) and I’ve broken several prongs on it. Tonight my iPhone wouldn’t charge and I started freaking out!!! I prayed and prayed and God answered my prayers by leading me to this website and now the problem is fixed!!! Now I’m free from having to tell and being scolded by my mother with a lecture on being reckless and unappreciative. Worked like a charm!!!

  2. I am using the case charger and this did not work. It charges for only a few seconds then the charge up indicator goes off but it will charge with a regular USB device. This is the 2nd case charger, designed specifically for the iPhone C, that I have tried.
