It might be time for a full restore. If that doesn't work, then you'll have to take it to the Apple store.

ok thanks! I cant even restore it threw iTunes because it doesn't reckonize the iPhone. I called Apple care an they said the same thing. I have an appointment to go to the Apple store tomorrow, but I just wanted to hear any suggestions from folks on here.. I'm open to any more though.. Thanks though ColTiger

Did you try holding down the home key and lock button for 10 seconds? That should restore the phone.

I think I had 112 firmware, but then I downloaded 113 speaker amp(stupid move)but it didn't start until I brought a so-called "iPhone compatible" car charger thats when it started messing up. Now I can only charge the phone using the car charger. My stock charger that came with the iPhone doesn't work with
my phone at all i cant even synce the phone with my Laptop anymore, Nothing. It just says "this accessory is not made to work with this phone". now when I watch a video on it it only plays for like 1 minute then shuts down. the Mic doesn't work,blue tooth does work,wifi yes,and speakers a lil bit. I can text but now i cut my service off. Oh! i have video recorder too,and when i have the music on speaker it gets really hot fast.

SIDE NOTE: I was about to try to do my own lil modification like cutting the wire of my car charger (thing that connects to the iPhone) and the original USB wire from my iPhone and connect it to the laptop to see if it'll sync. The "teeth" from the car charger is the only thing the iPhone would recognize and charge with.

What do you think?

Well the only trouble I see with that is if cutting and splicing the two together doesn't work u may not be able to charge the phone at all. This is a possible good thing tho. If it won't charge no matter what and there is no visible damage on it then odds are Apple won't be able to charge it either and they will have to replace it.

I agree with Bone, Do your own little mod see what happens and then if theres no luck go straight to Apple and tell them whats up. Could be a software problem. Let us know what they say.
