    Becouse for iphone you must provide data + and data- you can see version 2 of this build in my newest project http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Pzkkz24z_I Much safer for phone and more simple to make ;)

    Nice design.

    But you should definitely add two ceramic capacitors (100nF or so). One between input and GND and one between output and GND. You can (and should) mount them directly at the 7805.

    Without them, the 7805 can start oscillating. Granted, it depends on the brand of the 7805 and maybe even on the battery and load levels - and it will work most of the time, but when it fails, it can generate something like a 7V rectangular wave with a frequency of some kHz. Not something I'd like to feed into my phone.

    Had to learn that the hard way, when a power supply suddenly didn't work any more.
