Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

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.

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
Thanks!

How can I improve my iPhone's battery life?


A recent research conducted on cellphones (smartphones) revealed that most of your battery life is drained by "Internet" and "calls". The more you use your phone for any of these two, the faster your battery drains. Next on the list is "Search for network" which consumes quite a bit of your battery power.
Smaller culprits are WiFi, Bluetooth, Screen brightness, themes, Vibration, etc.
* Reduce screen brightness to minimum
* turn off WiFi/3G/4G when not required (same with Bluetooth)
* if you are out of network area, turn off the mobile network so you cell doesn't keep searching for a network.
* If possible reduce internet usage on your cell phone to improve battery life (ie. if you have a laptop handy, use it!)
* Use a darker wallpaper
* Vibration takes up more battery than ringtones
* use a simple theme
* Dont keep your cell phone charging for long periods (eg. overnight)
* If you plan to buy a new battery, buy a branded authentic one
Hope this helped, thanks for using FixYa!

I've had an iphone 3G for about a year now, and jus in the past 2 weeks i've had a hard time charging my phone, with either a wall outlet or my computer. i'll find myself spending an hour jus trying to...


Most likely your iPhone battery is dead. If you have the AppleCare and hasn't expired Apple will replace your iPhone battery free of charge.

If it has expired you can pay about $50 (I think) and Apple will replace the battery. If you think that's too much go to Amazon/Ebay and look for an "iPhone Battery Replacement Kit." Remember if you do decide to do the battery replacement yourself. You're voiding your Apple warranty & they won't replace it.

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. Click on the links below to see other soultions for the charge and sync iphone problem

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


hello!

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

Unlocked iphone


As of right now no iPhones will work on any carriers other than AT&T, unlocked or not. AT&T has exculsive rights to the iPhone until 2012, so unless you put an AT&T sim card in the iPhone it will not transmit.

Plus even if you could get the phone to work on another service providers network, as soon as you plugged the phone in to your computer, iTunes would disable it...

Sorry
