Random shut offs that need charger to turn phone back on
My iphone 3gs started randomly shutting down and could power back up with reset, by holding top and bottom button down. Now its alot worse and the phone will only come back on when I plug into charger after about 60 secs. Battery shows pleny of battery percentage. It's driving me crazy!!
Thank you Phillip and ifixit. Got the battery today and replaced it. Was a bit rough, especially with the small screws. Then I was putting it back together and had all the screws in when I noticed #5 ribbon was under battery. Lol. Took back apart and fixed it. The sticker was hard to get off (came out in small pieces) and putting the small tab in behind the camera screw was a pain with a magnetic screwdriver. But anyway, everything works, and haven"t had a shutoff yet. So I hope all is well!!
Is this a good question?
