It sounds very much like a power issue..ie the battery lacks charge or isn't giving adequate output/about to run out of charge. Try charging your iphone for an hour or so, make sure that the charging image comes on when you do this..it may be the dock needs cleaning if you are not getting charge to the phone. Use a toothpick to clean out all the goop that accumulates where you connect the cable to the phone. Let us know if that helps, you may need a new battery..
