Some cheap cables charge the phone but won't sync it. Maybe the "security chip" in your cable is bad. I could see the cable charging the phone if that's the case.

Does your phone vibrate and start charging when plugged into the computer? It should still charge via USB even if the cable is defective (in the way that you've described).

Do you have another iPod or iTunes device- to test the functionality of the USB port/iTunes interface?

Forgive me for correcting him. What I said is the truth. Using "buff" when you mean clean is not the same thing at all.
