Iphone goes to "needs to charge mode"

Hello, my iphone is a 1.1.3 OTB and i only had it for a week now. When the battery gets below like 80 % i always get the screen where ill see the iPhone battery says it has to charge. When i put it to charge it goes right back up and functions again. With almost full amount of battery time left... So with other words i have to carry the charger with me wherever I go. Do anyone know what the problem is or what i can do?

When you bought the phone you musnt have left it on charge for 24 hours like you are actually meant to. so there are no known solutions for your problem. you can either ask for a new one sent out to you and tell them your problem or you can buy a battery portable battery charger that you can take around anywhere with you. they are approximatly 30 odd dollers.
hope i have helped.

waiting for your ranking.

Ate pro max error says unfortunately stock android has stopped. How to fix?

1. Charge The iPhone
It may sound easily, but you need making sure your iPhone's battery is charged enough to run the phone. To test this, you can plug the iPhone into USB charging port or the main USB ports on a computer. Let it charge for 15-30 minutes and hold down the on/off button to turn it on. Maybe it turns on automatically. If you doubt recharging doesn't work, it's possible that your charger or cable is faulty.
2. Check The iPhone Cable And Charger
Maybe you need trying charging your iPhone with another cable and another charger. Then try charging someone' s iPhone with your cable and your charger. If the iPhone cable and charger has problem, you must pay attention to.
3. Restart The iPhone
If the iPhone cable and charger are no problem, you need to restart your iPhone. Pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
Note for iPhone 7 and 7S users: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons simultaneously to force a restart.
4. Restore The iPhone
If you want to restore the iPhone, you make sure you've got the latest version of iTunes. Then connect your iPhone to your PC and select Devices in iTunes.
If you haven't backed up your iPhone you will be told to do so now. This will back up all the data and settings on your iPhone. Then click on restore, wait until your iPhone completes the restore process and resets to the Home screen.
5. Reset
Click on Settings then General then Reset All Settings
This will perform a reset of all the settings to the factory defaults. The data or content on the iPhone is unaffected.
6. Put iPhone Into DFU Mode
Your iPhone may not turn on. This can happen after jailbreaking or when you installed an iOS update without enough battery life. When you face this problem, you can put your iPhone into DFU mode.
Plug your iPhone into PC.
Press the on/off button for 3 seconds.
Press the on/off button and Home button together for about 10 seconds. (iPhone 7 press volume down)
Release the on/off button, but keep holding the Home button for about 5 seconds.(iPhone 7 press volume down)
If the screen stays black, you're in DFU Mode. Follow the instructions in iTunes.
7. Force device into recovery mode
Beware: Recovery mode erases all the data on your device. Only follow these steps if you have a recent back up on iCloud or a computer.
Turn off your iOS device.
Plug the USB cable into your computer - but not into the device
Hold down the Home button then plug the USB cable into the device
When you see the Connect to iTunes screen (below), release the Home button.

Iphone 3g proper charging

Once you purchase the iphone,dont use it yet.Instead of using it right away,kindly charge your IPhone with the wall charger for 3 hrs.Please dont use the Iphone while charging.Kindly check always if the battery is full.Once its fully charged then that's the time that you can use the iPhone. Once fully charged, let the iPhone's battery fully drain.Please keep the iPhone off for 2 hours.Fully charge your iPhone and allow the battery to rest in the fully charged state for two hours. (You may use your iPhone during this time as long as the iPhone is plugged in).Repeat the third and fourth step a maximum of three times if you feel your battery indicator is inaccurate.

Here are some tips for your everyday charging for your IPhone:
#1 - Charge your iPhone throughout the day when available. Charge EVERY night, regardless of charge level. This will keep your battery active, which is healthy for the iPhone's battery.
#2 - Use a wall charger or car charger w/ rated output 5V 1A. Computer chargers might not charge when the computer is in standby mode.
#3 - You cannot overcharge your iPhone. You don't need to disconnect the iPhone from the charger after it's done charging. Once fully charged, the iPhone will run strictly off of AC power and will not damage the battery.
#4 - Every two months, make sure you fully charge and fully drain the battery, in one cycle. This calibrates your battery indicator. If you fail to do this, your indicator will become inaccurate. Calibrating your battery does not improve battery life.
#5 - If you ever need to store your iPhone for any reason, make sure your battery is stored @ roughly 50% and in a cool environment.
#6 - Always charge your iPhone out of its case (assuming you can easily remove the case). Charging your iPhone inside your case will make the iPhone hotter, which is bad for the battery.
#7 - Charge your iPhone in a cool location. Charging your iPhone in a cool environment has a tremendous impact on your battery's lifespan. The colder the location you use to charge, the more charging cycles you can complete without your battery deteriorating. Avoid charging in direct sunlight.
#8 - Use properly rated chargers. Using chargers that are not properly rated will have a huge impact on your battery's lifespan. Make sure your car charger has the same rating as the official Apple charger.
The official Apple wall charger is rated as follows:
Input: 100 240V ~ 50/60 Hz 1.0A
Output: 5V 1A

I plugged my iphone to the computer but it wont charge or sync

Try turning it off and then back on, if turning it on and off doesn't work, restoring it might work. Also try to remove the SIM card and put it back into the phone. I recommend simply exchanging the phone at the Apple store if it is still under warranty.

My apple iphone cannot power on,just have apple screen on my screen with light turn on


This can be a result of a few different things:

1. make sure the battery is charged; if the IPhone has a low battery, a little battery icon will appear with a triangle exclamation on it.

2. the IPhone needs to be reset. You can do this by turning the hold switch to ‘off’, connecting the adapter to an electrical outlet, then press and hold the PLAY and MENU button for about 5 seconds
3. make sure the Hold switch is off; it should be switched away from the headphone jack port
