Thread: iphone battery life
03-05-2010, 09:21 AM #1iphone battery life
i have an iphone 3g 16gb. firmware 3.1.3
and ever since i've upgraded, my battery life doesn't last over 10-15 minutes. and if i open an app. even worse. sometimes i'd be watching a video on youtube, and a minute later, the phone would shut off.
i've done lots of research on how to fix this problem.
ppl would say to let the battery drain, until you can turn it on, and then charge it to the max.
well that didn't work for me.
i also tried restoring it, and even downgrading to 3.1.2. didn't work
and also, when i restored it, i didn't back it up. i stored it as a new phone.
so... i really do not know what to do to fix this problem.
