Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

I have an Apple iPhone 3GS with the 4.1 software. The iPhone keeps switching itself off. I would lock the screen and want to unlock it a couple of minutes later and then it is switched off. The battery is fully charged, but it still happens. Then I have to reset the phone in order to put it back on. It doesn't want to merely switch on at the power button. HELP!

Software glitch or battery issue. Backup and save all your data and music. Then reboot and re-update the software. If that still don't fix it, then you got a problem with your battery power management. The system thinks the battery is low and automatically shuts off to preserve the contents. Try charging battery fully overnight with the power off and see if that helps. If not, then you will have to see the Apple dorks at the Apple store for a replacement phone. Cheers.

Quick discharging of the Iphone 3gs battery


Yes its normal. To maintain the most power adjust your brightness bar down to 1/4 or 1/2. Keep the push mail function off when you don't need it. Don't recharge the battery until the unit shuts itself off. Then recharge the battery to max before using. This is called conditioning the battery, even though many say you don't need to on lithum ion batteries because there is no memory effect. But their full of sh.t, cause you do the first time you get the battery and should do it once a month to extend the life of the battery.

My iPhone 3GS battery died and now I get only a white screen...


Try hard reset
  1. Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
  2. Hold both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, Ignore the "Slide to power off" and keep holding
  3. The iPhone should now shutdown automatically - (fade to black)
  4. Turn the iPhone back on by hitting the sleep/wake button.
  5. You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.
  6. You have completed a hard reset successfully
