    As the pin configuration made for the iPhones and other USB devices may be different, I would suggest you not to try doing this. It can be a fire hazard.

    I assume yur fren has a creative usb cable also that connects to his mp3 player. Just check both the chargers, if the o/p is same at voltage (shld be 5V), then is okay.

    But seriously dun think can share the Iphone usb cable as port differs.

    I think TS is referring to the USB port from the 3pin adptor from iPhone. He's not saying that to use the iPhone cable to charge the creative mp3, just making use of the iPhone USB port to charge with the creative mp3 USB cable
    Take the shot!

    If both can be charged via USB cables - meaning you can just plug in the USB cable to your computer and charge them - then there is not an issue, as the USB charger is just like another USB port except providing only power. USB standard requires that USB ports have a rating of 5V 500mA, so most USB charger will meet this requirement. You can check the rating on the iphone charger and the mp3 charger to confirm. This is also what I like about USB devices, cos I only need to bring a cable and they can be charged any place where a computer is available.
