Phone will not Charge after Battery Replacement
I have a Iphone 3GS and lately the phone will shut off after a few texts and so I ordered a battery for replacement from Ifixit. After work last night I followed the steps outlined here and had no problems with the new battery install. However once I put the phone on the charger it appeared it was not charging. Even after being plugged in all night. When I take it off the wall charger it just goes off. When I plug it in after boot-up it is requesting activation.
This morning I took the phone apart again and re tried the the battery install process with the same results. Considering that my problem may be my new battery I re-installed the original battery and when this battery was plugged into the wall it began charging and did NOT need activation. Once unplugged the phone stayed active and ready for use.
The question-Is the new battery I received from Ifixit defective?
Is this a good question?
