picked up a usb cable so i can charge my iphone at work, took a gamble as the pack said works with, ipod, anyway plugged in my pc and its working with my iphone 3gs.

This is NOT the official iphone cable, its a 3rd party cable, does not work with itunes but does charge the iphone

not all cables work `with the iphone 3gs, this one does, ask some one to confirm befoe you buy or take a gamble.

I bought one at home and bargain a month or two ago and it doesn't work with the 3gs. Sometimes it pops a message up saying the accessory isn't compatible and refuses to sync. I now use it in a usb charger and it works fine for that.
Does the one you bought look like the genuine Apple one like the image you have posted? 'Cos mine doesn't. The sync connector housing is quite a bit bigger than the genuine one.

Wow, nice price :thumbsup:

Be careful with 3rd party cables, I had to get my iphone restored after a 3rd party cable messed up my phone during a sync.

just tried it with itunes...no joy.....nevertheless, i bought this purley to keep my iphone charged whilst I am at work on my work pc and not for use at home with my itunes for which i have the original cable. So its a good second charger i guess.

I have the one from pouindland and it is great, works everytime and is real handy to keep at work on my desk. That way if I ever need a charge I just stick it into my usb port before coming home.

Poundland also do a TV out cable, which I actually brought today. Will be trying it tomorrow,

The TV Out cable from Poundland doesn't work with the iPhone 3GS. Comes up with an incompatible accessory message.

Is this 3rd party ? if so there on play.com. If its official cable then I'll crab one too!

i have an iphone 2g so hmm

average price..

would the cable in poundland be compatible eith the 3rd gen itouch?

Might be best to remove 3gs from the title of this thread seeing that its incompatible..

Bough this from Amazon the other day and it arrived on Saturday, you buy 2 cables for 2.98 with free shipping!

amazon.co.uk/exe…uct

They say they are 3rd party, but they look exactly the same as my apple one, same quality to cable etc etc.

Anyway works with my 3GS and does itunes as well as power. (Basically works same as my original cable) BARGAIN!

Hope it helps someone out guys.

The cable in Poundland and the 99p Store looks like this

I got one as a spare a while back. It works with my non-state of the art iPods and is more solidly made than the genuine Apple cables if less elegant.

Scrap all those, ive forund the DE iPod cables to be the best third party ones

Not really as the title doesn't say it works with iTunes it charges it the iPhone 3 gs

All leads charge the 3gs, it's syncing that's the problem.

Your title should be ipod cable. It's not a 3gs cable and its not a usb charger

NOT FOR 3GS, should be clearer in title...cold from me. Poundland make does charge the 3gs.

I got one from poundland today and it charges the ipod but doesnt sync it which is fine by me as i only want it as a back up at work to charge my 3GS

The one I have from poundland does charge and sync my 3GS. Confused!?

Not true.

I have a Belkin car charger that works with my Ipod Classic but when you plug in an Iphone 3GS it says that the accessory is not compatible and would i like to enable airplane mode. It does not charge the Iphone.
