Title:

After battery replacement, my phone keeps resetting itself.

Text:

A few days ago, my friend dd a battery replacement on my iPhone 5c. The phone is completely up to date and I haven't experienced any issues before this.

After the replacement, the battery lasted for about 4 hours before completely dying. After plugging it in, the phone started rebooting by itself every few minutes. After messaging him about it frantically, he told me that it's just the battery and it's because it's new.

Calming down, I took the phone off of the charger, and it stayed on the same percentage-while functioning okay- for several hours. Knowing that this isn't normal, I restarted my phone, only for it to start doing the weird rebooting thing again.

Last night, after reading from several websites, I let it completely die and charge to 100% all night. When the phone was off, the battery wouldn't charge, so I kept the phone on, opting to just not mess with it.

Today, the rebooting thing has still been happening every few minutes-it's quite frustrating to say the least. For about six  hours this afternoon I didn't mess with it at all-and it went from about 100% to 20% in that time span-the percentages jumping up and down a few times.

So here are my questions:

# Did I get a faulty battery-is that what's up?
# Did my friend just mess up my phone?
# What do I do? I can't function on a phone that resets itself every few minutes.

Thanks for the help in advance!
