    Default Signal loss with low battery?
    Hi,

    I've had no problems with my iphone at all, up until i noticed this REALLY annoying occurance.

    sometimes even before the 20% battery warning will appear, and the battery is still green, I'll get the black and red flashing splash screen
    the one that tells you to plug in the phone because the battery is low. but it is about half full!
    I just restored my phone to see if that would fix it, it hasnt come up YET.

    the main issue.
    When the battery gets around... 30%, mostly at the 20% warning, while the phone is on sleep/locked. the signal will go down to 1 tiny bar, but i won't have edge or anything. so i won't recieve calls or texts.
    but as soon as i unlock the phone, 5 seconds later i'll get my 5 bars back.

    anyone know why?

    thanks


    p.s.

    Sorry if this is the wrong section

    hmmm strange. i had a similar issue as far as the battery being weird and saying it was dead when it wasnt. it turned out i had battery damage from the sun???? yeah. apple gave me a new one right away. the other symptoms your having are strange though. my knowledge stops at the incorrect battery levels

    as far as backing up your apps in the event of taking it to apple try this. i would try the phone out WITHOUT it jailbroken and see if you get the same issue....if you do...take it into apple. keep us updated

    So do you think this is some sort of "power management" attempt by apple?

    I was reading that there was some hack on cydia that boosted the signals with low battery on lock so this wouldnt happen.

    i never found it though -_-"

    i did a full restore again.

    STILL doing it. incredibly annoying.
    has anyone else had this problem?

    I really don't want to take it in to get replaced, because re downloading all my cydia apps again.

    The AppBackup thing didnt work last time -_-"
