The other day I plugged my iPhone into my car charger just as I have hundreds of times. There was a message popped up that said "charging is not supported to this device" or some type of similar error. I then was still able to use the phone until it went dead. Now, I can't get the iPhone to charge on any of my 3 different chargers. Any advice?

It's possible that the socket shorted out or has become damaged.  Take it to an Apple store if possible.  If not, contact Apple Care to get a RMA box sent to you ship it in.
