does your iPhone chirp when it's charging?

my iPhone used to only "chirp" when I first connected it to the charger. but now it sometimes chirps every few seconds while it's being charged. sometimes it chirps almost constantly, sometimes it will go a minute or two without chirping. does your iPhone do this? I used to charge my phone over night, but the chirping put a stop to that.

When I first purchased my iphone it chirped when I was charging it, several times per minute. I went to AT&T the next day, they gave me a new phone.

Mine only chirps once, when I first plug the charger in to the wall.

Mine only chirps when I plug it in. Did you check Google to see if other people have this issue? Did you try turning it completely off and then turning it back on and then seeing if that takes care of the problem?

didn't think about Googling, but I did turn it off and back on and it didn't help. off to Google.

If you have an Apple store near you take it there. They can help you.

FYI: it was my charger. I bought a VERY inexpensive charger from eBay. apparently it was not only cheap, it was cheaply made. when I replaced it with a REAL Apple charger, the chirping stopped. lesson learned.

Good info to share about the charger. Thanks for coming back and posting it, I was curious what was causing it.

I have 2 Iphones - One for work and one for personal use. Neither one chirps when charging.

From iPad Air

I charge mine while it's plugged into my computer. It only chirps when I first turn the computer on, or plug the phone in.

that's kinda how I figured out the problem. I needed a charger for work and a charger for home. I took the original charger that came with my iPhone to work and left it there. then I bought another charger from eBay to keep at home. after I started using the charger from eBay for about a week, the chirping started. I finally realized that when I had it charging at work (on the original Apple charger) it only chirped once when I first plugged it in. I finally figured out that I had a defective charger at home. since I bought another Apple charger for home, I've had no more chirping.
