Generic charger hurting my iPhone?
I recently switched from an HTC Inspire to the iPhone 4, needless to say, I'm quite happy with it.
I felt like I needed a longer sync/charge cable, so I bought a KHOMO branded 10ft cable.. But I feel as if my phone doesn't work as good? Like when trying to answer a message it takes me multiple tries to unlock the phone... Could the charger be making my phone not work as good as it should?
I'm sorry if this is a dumb question or has been asked before

They might possibly be hurting your idevice. But generic chargers tend to just not be as strong as Apple or name brand chargers. Its the amps is what charges it. Apple,Griffin,etc are great brands and high quality. I wouldn't worry about it. The generic chargers tend to just be weaker with less amps and charge slower.Current White Iphone 4 8GB JB Evasi0n 7.0.4 because of budget reasons

I had some generic car charger, and it ended up somehow tinkering with my 30 pin connection, making me have to take my phone back to Apple and have them replace it. They specifically told me that it was the connection I was using.

I have a cheap 6 foot cable i got at amazon that i use with the standard apple adapter, and have no charging issues. The only problem i've seen with it is that it is less well built, but in term of how it charges it's fine. I doubt that what sounds like a software issue is caused by a charger.
