7/30/14 This topic my have been discussed in forum but new to this so posted new thread. Being unable to charge iphone with lightning cord now cause Apple's decided to get rotten ticks me off. Especially since certified ones I bought to remedy problem have failed after less than 30 days of purchase. Way too costly to continue replacing. Come on Apple get your hand out of our back pockets. We all spent dearly to get our phones so stop with the penny annie crap. This penny annie move going to be a black ball mark for iphones and only make users (new and old) look more to competitors phones. Fix this soon. If anyone knows something I don't know of how to fix, tell me.
