My battery on my iphone used to only last a day when limiting my use. And when I tried to use it normally with all the apps and music and calling people it only went for 10mins and then turned off.

How I fixed this:
It's an ongoing solution. I charged it up until it said 100%, then used it all up until it shut down again. And then I charged it til 100% and then depleted it again. Repeat over 2 weeks and your battery life should get back to normal. It worked for me and now my iPhone works better than ever!

There is an issue with the IC that handles charging the battery and generating the different voltages the iPhone needs. Historically there have been problems with this chip so I am not surprised you are experiencing glitches with the 3G already. If the problems comes back it is most likely not caused by the battery, since the battery should not cause problems in the first year. If the battery has a manufacturing problem it will not recover spontaneously and you can take it to Apple. If you are out of warranty or unlocked your iPhone there are independent iPhone battery repair services that can open the iphone for you and replace whatever is needed, but they will charge for it.

Don't expect your iPhone 3G to have a battery life as long as the older iPhone, it has a shorter battery life, sometimes this could be a minor thing like an application that is draining your battery.

I had an application that suddenly closed, then my battery life was extremely short. I reopened the application, held down the home button for a few seconds, force closing the application.

I don't know why but this worked, i guess it reduced the "pressure" from my battery.

Hope this works for you.

Is the iPhone 5 faster than the 4s?


3g is the ability to use your phone as an internet hotspot to surf the web.#160 It’s a very convenient backup to have because having no wireless can be annoying.#160 The new iPhone 5 is equipped with something called “4g.” Depending on your network, 4g can more than double the speed of your old 3g phone.#160 It can be as fast as home high speed wireless.#160 As an iPhone geek, I’m really excited about this new development!

What is the differeance between iphone g3 to phone gs3?


the main difference between the iphone 3g and iphone 3gs is the speed. but here are the specifications for both phones
weight: the 3gs is slightly heavier at 135g memory: iphone 3g only has two options an 8gb or a 16gb whereas for the iphone 3gs it has 8gb/16gb/32gb camera: the iphone 3g has 2mp camera that can only take pictures while the ihpne 3gs has a 3.15mp camera that can also capture videos cpu/processor: iphone 3g has ARM 11 412 MHz, PowerVR MBX-Lite graphics while the iphone 3gs has 600 MHz ARM Cortex A8 processor, PowerVR SGX535 GPU. So the 3gs is faster and it means less or no lag on apps
the 3gs has a digital compass
and the 3gs has a longer battery time than the 3g.
to summaarize, the iphone 3gs is faster, has longer battery life, and has a bigger memory (as it comes with a 32gb version).

IPhone 3G server problem


Apple had a problem with their servers during the iPhone 3G launch, they under estimated the number of people that will try to log into the iTunes server at once, as a result the server fall down.

If this is the error you get, when connecting to the iPhone 3G to iTunes server you can relax, your iPhone 3G is 100% OK.

It looks like this -
