Fix: iPhone 3Gs Charging is not supported with this Accessory

Fix: iPhone 3Gs Charging is not supported with this Accessory

Everybody is getting frustrated looking for a fix for a glitch that iPhone is having with. Lots of iPhone users are complaining about getting an error while charging and this message will pop-up "Charging is not supported with this Accessory". What? It's not charging.

When I got this error while charging the iPhone 3Gs, I immediately search the internet if someone could be in the same shoe as I'm in and found out that I'm not the only one. I tried hard to look up for a fix and did several suggestions from the web but no to avail.

I got the dock and pins cleaned, even changed the wall charger and the cord, switched to USB charging and none of these worked out. So I concluded that there's no problem associated with the hardware. Until such time that I realized all this happened after I upgraded to the latest firmware (from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1). Dude, its a glitch on the software.

Wow, there are even suggestions that charging will work if Wifi is turned off and may be putting the phone in Airplane Mode. Some says it worked, some says not, and I said not to me neither. 

Oh boy, there is no really a fix for this until we wait for Apple to release a new firmware update.

But wait guys, may be there's no fix for this but I got this breakthrough. So don't lose hope because we still have that device get to work. Trust me. Still remember when I said that this problem is some kind of a glitch in the software, it's no hardware.

How? Here it is.

1. You got your phone plugged for charging and message pop-out saying "Charging is not supported with this Accessory", then let it be. Just leave your phone that way. (I just did it)
2. Observe. The battery is still charging even if there's the message saying about the error. The battery percentage is going up a little (this time we have a very slow charging mode). 
3. You'll certainly notice that the phone is charging, try to let it that way until the juice reached 20%. Unplugged and plug it again. By doing so, you'll have the normal charging again. Enjoy the charging again in a very normal way.

What's the catch? It's a software glitch. By the time your phone's juice reached below 20% (or may vary from other depending on the condition of battery), charging error is likely to occur. This is the case on my side.

From now on, I will not let my phone's juice go down below 20% or atleast.

Hope guys this one will work for you and let us know by leaving a comment.
