This is occurring due to change in moisture in atmosphere. Once you are in colder region Your phone works fine and as soon as you are moving out to a country where moisture is abandun your battery starts malfunctioning. As per the company your battery should work for 5 hrs with browsing and video and 12 hours when playing audio. Your battery comes with a one year warranty time. If your warranty period is available then you can approach the customer care for change and if its old and you can't afford to charge it frequently. It is advisable you change your battery. It is always advisable to change your battery within 3 years or else it can damage your phone also. Below is the link which is selling this battery on discount so you save $16.50 if you purchase from there.
I hope this solves your query. If any further assistance required you are most welcome.

How do I turn off roaming when abroad.

not sure if this is what you are after..
Before you head off abroad, check your network settings. To do this, go to Settings > Mobile Data. Next to Mobile Data Options it will say either Roaming On or Roaming Off. If it says On and you want to make sure you don't spend any extra cash on data while you're abroad, tap this and set it to off.24 Jul 2017

Need a Manual for IPhone 4 16G

Hi there,

Apple doesn't really have a manual for the actual phone per se, but they do have a user manual for the software on the phone:

You might be able to get specific manuals for your phone from your wireless carrier, but I wouldn't be able to tell for sure! Hope this helps!

Can you please tell me if I can use free viber calls when I visit uk. To talk to my daughter who has viber apple

Hi, This is a member of the Viber development team. Yes, You can use Viber to talk for free no matter where you are in the world, as long as both users have Viber installed. Make sure you use it on WiFi though, because 3G roaming charges could be very high abroad (charged by your cellular cmompany).

My china i phone dual sim which i use in spain is reading invalid sim in uk why please

SIMs are network related. If your Spain service does not have a roaming agreement in the UK then no tower will recognize it and it will be invalid. Upon return to Spain it be in an area where it is recognized again it will show up as the provider on your screen.

My iphone wont turn on

This is usually a manufacturer defect, if the battery has any problems i can short circuit and cause major damage inside the phone. Lithium Ion batteries have a very hot current so this is likely. Apple is completely responsible for the phone if the warranty is still good. Try to do a master reset or take it to an apple store and find someone who is capable of recovering the data, I have tools to read that hard drives from ipods but the memory in the iphone i think is hard wired into the board. Try to use the charger as well, and see if the charger gets hot, then you probably have a short in the power circuit in the phone.
