I have a problem with a new Rogers iphone 3 gs will not charge with the charger that I got with the phone. Message says " charging is not supported with this accessory". Any ideas???

Older Ipod models charged at a different voltage. New Ipod & Iphone models charge at 5V.

What exactly are you using to charge your phone with?

It should charge with the USB cable and the little cube USB wall adapter that comes with the iPhone.
I assume it charges, though, when plugged in via USB to your computer (computer powered on)?

I get then when I try to use an older FM transmitter / charger that I have but no problems with the stuff that came with the iPhone.

As noted, visit the Apple Bar.

Please let us know what they say
