It SOUNDS like a dead battery. Lithium polymer batteries degradation is exponential...when they start to fail, they fail fast. Your phone getting hot is probably an indication that the charging circuitry over working itself to charge the bad battery, and may also be the battery getting hot from resisting charging. Try replacing the battery first and be sure to replace with only a 3GS battery, iPhone 3G batteries will not work.

ill try it after dis..how about problem which iphone cant be detect by laptop..is that also bcoz of the battery???

by hanif khair

no power from phone=no message to computer. This is why your phone can't be detected, change the battery and it should be good. I agree with what Phillip has advised you.

Check with a torch the LCI's there is one in the headphone jack and one in the dock of the iPhone, there is also two inside if you can open the phone. They go red when wet

can u xplain a little bit..i get confuse with ur instruction.. wat u mean by they go red when wet?

by hanif khair

I believe what Paul is referring to, are the LCI, liquid contact indicator. they are normally white but turn red whenever the device is exposed to liquids, i.e. water damage.
