Do you have it set up with a computer yet? If so please tell us if it is a PC or a Mac and we can direct you to software which can give you a much better idea of what's going on with it.

Hi @star5281, based on your phone, I think that the battery has reached EOL (End of Life)

I had a model similar and was showing the same issues. Most probably a replacement of new battery will resolve this issue.

Take note on your iphone model carefully, eg. AXXXX

You can find the guide from ifixit to dismantle it.

I would suggest getting your battery replacement from ifixit, as they offers excellent replacement for the iphone battery.
