    Angry major iPhone battery issue
    hey i fix many iPhones but my phone has the worst unsolvable problem i have ever encountered i have replaced the battery many times as it has many problems

    Battery #1 the phone would simply not turn on 1 day was walking around took it out and didn't turn on \
    Battery #2 after 2 weeks or so after replacing the first one this one would have the battery percentage read very wrong and wouldn't charge right and after a couple hours of use would turn off by it self
    Battery #3 just replaced it now as it went to 10% and was going lower when plugged in (refused to charge)

    im not sure if all these batteries i buy are defective or my phone loves destroying batteries I'm on battery #4 now and all this has happened over the course of a little over 2 months what should i do

    1.) Try a clean restore. Do not restore from a backup. (The iPhone may contain a process or 2 eating away at your battery).

    2.) Try to keep things like the Camera app out of the multitasking switcher. (apps like that are known to kill the phone, even in standby)

    3.) Shut off 3G whenever possible. 3G brings down your battery life noticeably(1/3 to 1/2 I believe)

    4.) Go through a full charge cycle once a month (kill the battery all the way down and charge it all the way up, gets the electrons flowing in the battery)

    Hope these tips help.

    You mean the battery won't work after 2-3 weeks? Completely?

    The problem is not the batteries then. If it's a repeated pattern, then it's most likely the phone itself (Although, given the benefit of the doubt that you've already figured this out.) But you may want to invest in a new iPhone before you spend more money on batteries than what it's worth.

    Another question. Did you fix this iPhone yourself and mess with CPU, motherboard, or battery ports?

    Do you own another iPhone of the same model or close?

    Do you own another iPhone of the same model or close? If so, then try using parts from it and change it into the iPhone you're trying to get working. (Although I'd just do an iTunes backup of the phone that has your data and move it over to the other one.)
