    Exclamation charging iPhone closed....
    Hye guys...
    I'm new here....
    I want to make a question....

    when the iphone is closed.... can be charged????

    (if you run out of battery and you put it on the charger... it opens...
    but if you close it then.... is the charging continues???
    and if yes is it better to charge it closed?????)


    Thanks in advance!!!!!

    Welcome to MMi

    By closed do you mean off?
    You can charge it off and on.
    I dont think it matters if its on or off while charging. I always leave mine on and its always worked great

    Wow... I've 'never' thought about that before. I would assume it would work on or off, but yeah, good question.

    first off all thanks for the quick reply...!!!

    last night my iphone runout of battery and closed... when i put the charger on it (not in the deck station) the phone opened and the charge continue.....

    Then i press the open/close button and the phone closed... with no sign of charging...

    when i open it in the morning and after 6 hours of charge the phone was not completed charged.
    (when i was charging it open... full of charge was coming in about 2:30 hours.)

    So i was wondering what happens if the charger is at the phone & the phone is closed.....



    Thanks in advance....!!!!

    That's definitely not normal to take 6+ hours to charge. Your phone should charge just the same whether it's locked or unlocked, on or off, and it should take (in my experience) between 1.5 - 2.5 hours to fully charge. It's not entirely clear to me whether you're charging with the actual charger supplied with the phone, or through your USB port. I know though that a lot of people had problems with the chargers provided with the early iPhones, and they did kind of what you are describing. The chargers worked great initially, but then after a while they would take longer and longer to charge the phone, and eventually stop working completely. If you are using the wall charger, then perhaps this is what you are experiencing?

    Hope this helps!
