I'm facing charging problem with my iPhone 4S. When I plugin the charger, it doesn't start the charging right away. It takes hours of time to fill in. And there are cases when it doesn't even start charging. I cleaned the charging port with an old tooth brush and tried all the tips, which dint help me. I believe there might be some problem with the updated iOS for iPhone 4S. Can anyone help me to fix this ?

Inspect the charging port to make sure that is not the problem. Does it sync with iTunes or show up in your computer? If work has been done on it before it's possible the ground connector on the battery was not replaced and that could also affect it's ability to charge.

My experience: the ground connector on the battery has to be fixed with the small screw, otherwise the iPhone won't charge. Thanks Garry !!!

I have a similar problem, my iPhone 4 isn't charging. It's about to die cause it has 10 percent left in its battery life. I tried plugging it in this morning to charge it because it was at 20 percent. But i didn't notice it wasn't charging until 10 percent of battery life popped up on my phone. Then i noticed the charging icon wasn't there. I've tried charging it from my car adapter, from my wall cable and the computer wire as well. iTunes also isn't loading when i plug my phone into the computer. Please if someone can help me that would be amazing. My mom didn't but insurance on it because i promised i'd take really good care of it. i just want a second chance. :( so i'm positive she's not willing to pay 400+ dollars to replace it. And this phone is BRAND NEW. LIKE A WEEK OLD. She's going to be so upset at me :'( Please Please Please help.:(

the phone will stop charging if the contacts become dirty or the cable port gets excessive lint in it. With an old clean soft bristle toothbrush, hold the iphone so the cable port is facing down, and gently sweep the cable port out. blow out the port after with fast hard breaths.

plug back in and Wa-La !! if that doesnt work it may be the cable but I recommend the cleaning anyway.

in most cases your charging dock is filled with lint where the cord goes, all you have to do is gently clean it out, and charge it, if that does not work simply manually restore or manually reset it. if that does not help send your iPhone back to apple and have it replaced

Having the same problem with my iPhone 4 but it only charges when it's turned off, doesn't hold a charge when turned on and the charging icon isn't showing. also there's a clicking noise coming from the top left corner that's occurs every time I press any buttons and when I plug my charger in, could this be something to do with it not charging?

I got my iPhone 4 charging port working by gently cleaning out with a needle. I scraped away dust and hair, and even found art of a tissue. Be careful and gentle though, as you do not want to break it. Alternately you could get a tooth brush and gently brush out all of the debris from the port. Also check to see that the charger is not the issue.
