IPhone states that "This accessory is not optimized for this iphone"

Just received my new iPhone 4 Dock, plugged it in and the iphone reads "This accessory is not optimized for this iphone". Will this hurt my iPhone or cause damage?

  • It won't hurt your iPhone or cause damage. This may be because you're using a very old iPod/iPhone cable. Try using a newer cable.
