    i’ve found a solution with the use of any cable… First connect the pin into iphone, but remember do not connect the other end to the laptop/pc yet .. when u connect into iphone it will give u a message ”this cable …. iphone”. Dismiss it. Now connect the other end to the laptop/pc. This time it will not give u any message about ”ths cable is not certified…iphone”..Try it !!!..Solution or Glitch :P

    None of these are not much of a fix. I HATE this new OS 7 SO MUCH! I think there must be a better solution to this so I do not have to screw with unplug this or turn this off. Maybe the best solution is to roll back to the old OS. Besides, this new OS has so many other problems like when I am typing a message it jumps to another app and I loose everything I typed. And the buttons are impossible to click on and off, as if it was easy before, but now it is crazy! What do they do, have high school interns write these new programs. It reminds me of the crap upgrades that Microsoft puts out. I think the term “upgrade” should imply you are getting something better. Who thinks we need an upgrade to make it worse? I know the answer to that, both Apple and Microsoft think this. Well…I have a work shop and a PhD in science. Maybe it is time I write my own OS’s or maybe even construct a whole new system all together. PCs and Macs are so old as it is. Time to come to the present and build the next generation of computing. I mean what are we stuck with now, Stone knives and bear skins? Where are you when we need you, Spock?

    Anyway, now that I have that out of my system, what is the real fix to this issue. I plug in my ebay bought cord and get that message as well. Sometimes it even does not give me a dismiss option and just does not work at all. Unplugging and replugging it in will work then I get the option to dismiss this issue, but what will happen on the next upgrade? I bet it will be fixed, alright…in apples favor and the cheaper cords will not work at all. We need a solution to beat them at their own game. I may have a PhD but unfortunately it is in chemistry, not computer science. I find it hard to believe that there are not people out there that can solve this issue. I hate the way I am paying so much for this phone as it is then to have them sock me with an outrageous price for a little cord. So clever these people are in getting my money. They remind me of the tobacco companies and how they increase the nicotine content in tobacco in order to strengthen the addictive nature of their product. I have about had enough with all of this and maybe should just join Mars One and move to Mars with the rest of the guys.

    I’ve been an Apple fanboy for years, but I’m rapidly becoming disenchanted with their latest (i.e., post-Jobs era) attempts to nickel and dime customers. The American public are the ones hurting during these economic times, not Apple–I think they would survive quite nicely without an additional $39.95 per customer for that oh so special “certified” power cord. :/
