My iPhone 5 charges fine in NYC - albeit with weakening battery life.

I went to Maine a couple weeks ago and it would not charge. Used the same charging hardware as in NYC which also worked fine for other people at our house in Maine.

Went back to NYC - my phone which wouldn't charge for days in Maine now charged immediately.

Now I'm back in Maine and have the exact same problem - won't charge.

Anyone know why?

The only thing I can think of is the signal at our island in Maine is very weak - would that matter?

How can I charge this phone?

Note: my phone is dead but when I plug it in the icon on the phone goes from battery + charger to just battery - so it recognizes that it is plugged in but it never charges or starts.

    what "signal", you are talking about charging, using a wall outlet ?

  • Cell and data signal from Verizon Aug 8 '15 at 20:19
  • Not sure we understand each other. Are you talking about charging the battery? Or are you talking about Signal strength from Verizon.

    If you use an extension cable, from NYC to Maine, and then charge the phone, does that work? Aug 8 '15 at 20:56
