Strange Occurences and Now it Won't Turn On

I've had my 8 gig iPhone for almost 9 months now with no problems up till now. Today, my phone started showing me the "This Device Does Not Support iPhone" Airplane mode message over and over again at least once every minute or sooner even though my phone wasn't plugged into anything. Then, I started playing my iPod and these bars of yellow and white ran down the screen like blinds and then the whole phone just shut off. I tried picking it up and it literally burned my hand. I've let it cool down and now the phone won't turn on at all. Holding either the home button or both buttons together doesn't do anything, putting it in a dock doesn't do anything, and when I tried to hook it up to either of my computers it didn't show up at all, nor did it turn on or show any sign of life.
I'm fairly certain that this thing has finally just bit the bullet and crapped out on me, but just so I know I've done everything possible before replacing it, does anyone have any suggestions or any clue as to what has happened? All thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated

Sounds like circuits were shorted, possibly by moisture or from the heat of the battery. I think your phone went from bad to worse and is completely self irreparable. I think you may want to consider having Apple service your phone. Otherwise, you'll have to buy one of the new 3Gs.

Check to see if your phone is still covered under Apple's warranty.

How to extend battery time for i phone?


Ensure any unneeded apps are stopped and not running in the background. Some apps such as facebook / twitter / etc may need to be completely uninstalled or logged out to keep them from running.
Turn down the screen brightness, Generally turning the screens brightness down till it can still be easily seen but not overly bright can increase cell phone battery by up to 20%
Shut off wifi / bluetooth / gps when not required. Disable Wifi / bluetooth, and GPS will also increase your phones battery time.

Ensure a full charge, most devices (iphones included) usually require a minimum of 8 solid hours to charge, even when they say full, they are not actually "FULL". Make sure your device gets at least 8 hours of charge time before use, and don't allow the battery to drain all the way before the next charge.

The last 2 days my iphone 4s has gone completely dead within 9 hrs time while not being used & not on the charger. It was 75% when I went to bed and then have nothing upon waking. It's never done this...


Is this since upgrading to IOS7? If not you may have an earthling issue which could be draining the battery. If less than 12 months take back to Apple shop, they will replace IPhone.
