The main problem is my iphone is not charging when my battery is completely drained. It’s OK for me if I charge it two or three times per day but when it’s off then that’s it I will not be able to charge.


If you've ruled out the obvious then you'll need to look at the motherboardfor anything shorting the circuits. I would really have thought it was a battery problem though


which iOS are you on? some have reported big drains on iOS 4, also if running apps in the background/enabled location services/push notices etc will drain.

my battery lasts about a reception here is only GPRS and it takes all the energy, if I get, loads of battery


did you check the gold antenna prong on motherboard is in contact with bezel?

have you checked the usb lead for damage/dirt?

you may need to open iphone and just check the battery connections are making good contact and screw is in (next to don't remove sticker)

what's your reception like? if it isn't as good as it was you may not have good contact between little gold antenna on top of motherboard (next to don't remove sticker) and metal bezel. if this is not in contact then phone uses all it's energy to maintain connection hence battery drain
