    Have you tried turning it off and back on again? If so next thing you can try is a factory reset. Then if that doesn't work it's time to visit your local Apple store.

    How about plugging it into your computer? I know it's a long shot but what do you have to lose?

    that doesn't work either.. Howerver, it is now is charging sporadically. it lasts for about 4 minutes, then stops.. not sure what is going on

    someone suggested trying DFU mode?? not sure what that is but will that work.. and will I lose my jailbreak if I do that??

    You never mentioned you were JB. That could be your problem right there. Restore and see if that fixes it.

    Maybe and maybe not. If you go to genius bar with this problem Saturday, they will restore your phone first before they give you a new one to verify if it's due to JB or if its hardware. So you might as well try first yourself.

    I know, definitely. I will restore my phone back to factory settings, and then restore from my backup first before I even walk in there.. I was told to never go to the genius bar with a JB phone or they won't help you..

    They will help you. They just will restore your phone first. That is their first step of trouble shooting.

    weird. phone is charging fine now.. I deleted the last theme I installed and re-installed it (because I love it so much, didn't want to give up on it) and its charging fine.. I guess we will see how it goes before I cancel my genius appt. maybe I just got a bad download, or maybe the chargers I had at work are the issue.. not sure.. but thanks for your help

    Glad to hear your phone is now charging as it should but to add one last thing, Make sure at least once a month you let your battery die down until your phone turns off and then charge it. This will help the charging cycles of your battery and the elctrons in your battery to move around as they should.
