Replaced battery, getting "device not compatible message," help?
I just replaced a shot battery in a 3G. Yes I used a 3G specific battery. I work on iPhones all the time and have never had this issue. That being, after replacing with new battery I get a message displaying that "this device not compatible""it may interfere with cellular strength" and a soft key allowing me to dismiss but it keeps popping up. The phone is not JB or unlocked. Any ideas are much appreciated!
Hmm... I've heard of this before. It could actually be that it is unrelated to your battery problem. Has the phone ever been water damaged? A buddy of mine had this problem after his old phone got dropped in a puddle. It could also be that when you replaced the battery, you accidentally shorted something somewhere. Are all the screws back in their places?
