    Default iphone not charging on work computer
    i didnt charge my phone last night and the battery wasnt going to make it the whole day today..so i turned the brightness up on the phone to drain the rest of the battery when i got to work...i just plugged my phone into the computer and now it wont charge. does anyone know why? i get the "found new hardware" dialog when i plug it in so i know the usb port works...any ideas? thanks

    how do you know it's not charging? sometimes when the battery's completely drained you have to let it charge for a bit before it would turn on. perhaps that's why?

    yeah...i didnt kill the battery all the way...when i plugged the phone into the computer it turned the phone on and right away the "10% battery life remains" dialog came up.....seems strange to me...also there is no symbol inside the battery icon like when it is usually plugged in or charging
