    Sorry if this has been talked about already, but has anyone experienced the charging port on the 5 to after awhile get loose and not noticing when the cable is plugged in it?

    Are you sure it's the port and not the cable? They can go bad.

    Try another cable but if that doesn't fix it, it should still be under warranty so contact Apple or go to an Apple Store if you have one nearby.

    I didn't realize the iPhone had a feature to reduce things to charcoal...I'll have to remember that.

    To put this out there, I've read many more issues with the cable itself than the actual charging port...not to say it's out of the realm of possibility that your port is loose, but the cables have been reported widely (especially in the beginning) of having issues with intermittent connections and failures all together.

    It was actually dust and built up inside. Apple really should sell the brush they use to get it out as a cleaning tool

    Just out of curiosity, where do you take your iPhone that's so dusty. I've never had any trouble with anything getting in mine. Orator I've just been lucky

    Anyway, glad it worked out well for you.
