Varying different combinations of region codes and plugs can often be daunting when planning on staying in another country, especially if you've never visited before. This guide shows how to power the iPhone 4 when staying in Guyana using their G, A, B or D type 220 volt 60Hz plug outlets. When you are visiting Guyana from a different country make sure that the iPhone 4 can be charged using a 240 volt supply. If the iPhone 4 came from a country which uses a lower voltage such as 120v double check your device is dual-voltage (marked with 100-240 volts) otherwise you may need to use an additional voltage converter to prevent the device from being damaged during charging. If you intend on visiting a place like Georgetown we also suggest referring to the Guyanese Wiki page [1] for more indepth details prior to travelling to the area. These instructions assume you are running Apple iOS 7 or greater on the iPhone 4.
