Ok so the other night I was working late, and thought to myself… hey, I have some new music on my iphone, why don’t I make use of my Klipsch iGroove speakers (as I had heard that most ipod accessories work with the iphone).
So I walked over to the speakers and dropped in my iphone. It fit perfect, as expected. I hit the power button… nothing. Ok, maybe I need to turn on the iphone. Nothing. Ok, maybe I need to hit the menu button… nothing.
I take the iphone out and try to power it up… nothing. I hold down each button for 10 seconds, and then try holding down both for 30 seconds. Nothing.
The iphone starts to get really really hot (almost too hot to hold) and I realize I am screwed.
So that is the bad part. The good part is that I was able to make an appt with the local Apple store within an hour, and they replaced my iphone with a new one.
So as stupid as it is that you could plug in an iphone into some ipod speakers and it would destroy the unit, it was nice that I was able to get a new phone as quickly as I did.
I will not be using any more ipod accessories with my iphone.
