My family have 2 iPhone 3Gs. The good one will charge in both the iPod docks in the house. The bad one will not charge in either.

The docks are:
Philips Executive 30-Watt Micro Speaker System with iPod Dock
Logitech Purefit Anywhere.

The bad iPhone charges in the car on the Monster® iCarCharger and via USB when plugged into AC or the computer.

The bad iPhone is 6 months newer than the good iPhone.

The good iPhone charges in all the various chargers and docks.

I've re-installed the OS completely in the bad iPhone but it's still not charging.

Anyone else seen this? Did Apple change their hardware along the line?

The newer phone is the better phone... differences in the hardware and firmware don't allow all docks to charge. Stick to your wall charger, or invest in the iPhone dock.

Once you go Mac you'll never go back.
