Thread: Battery/Charging problems
03-26-2010, 04:46 PM #1Battery/Charging problems
2 weeks ago I had problems with my 8 months old 3Gs the battery died quickly out of a sudden for 2 times then it refused to charge at all.
All of these happened 2days after I relocated to another country in which I know no one, I searched for a couple of repair shops and both were unable to repair it, I sent the phone to another repair shop in another city 10 days ago and I got it back today.
They said that they had to change some IC and the battery and they also said that they tried the phone for 2 days and it was working OK.
I asked about the reason for that problem and they told me that it seems that the phone fall into some liquid....I'm 100% sure that it didn't however humidity here is very high, could it be it ?
I took the phone home and during my journey back home the battery % showed unusual behavior sometime it's on 18% then 7% then 5% then 12% then 6& and so on.
I arrived home and tried to charge it it shows the battery indicator with a mark over it that tells that the phone is connected ( like a plug or something ) while another iphone that belongs to a colleague shows the thunder mark while being charged.
both are 3GS, mine is running OS 3.0 and his is running 3.1.2
Any ideas or hints in this regard will be highly appreciated.

I think the plug symbol is supposed to mean the phone is fully charged, lightning bolt means charging
