iPhone 3GS won't stay powered on after replacing battery
I bought a battery replacement kit for my 3GS, which was spontaneously shutting down whenever it got around 20% charged.
The instructions were excellent; the tools provided were just what I needed for the jobs.
After putting in the new battery, however, the phone won't stay powered on by itself.
Upon finishing the maintenance and putting in the last screws, I press the power button and... nothing. As soon as I plug in the USB charger, however, the thing turns itself on and all the functions (camera, wifi, phone antenna, etc.) work just fine.
What's especially odd is that the phone reported itself as 67% charged, but will not stay powered on.
After leaving it plugged in for an hour, I can get it to stay running for a few minutes, but it inevitably just powers off. I haven't tried leaving it plugged in all night yet.
The really frustrating thing is, it now says it's 100% charged, so I have no way to drain it down to where the glowing red battery icon shows so I can get the OS to think it's doing a full change.

Is this a good question?
