    Default Having trouble with my IP4
    Ive been having trouble with my phone charging. It would be at 100% then just freeze and give me a spinning wheel then it would go to the screen saying that the battery was dead and to plug it in. Before I could just hold home and power and it would reset. But now it wont reset, I have had my phone plugged for a day and it still says that it needs to be charged. I managed to get it into DFU mode and do a restore on it but after the restore it still says the battery is dead.

    If it's still under warranty, take it to Apple. If not, consider a battery replacement. That's the first thing I would do if it were mine.

    Sure sounds like faulty battery. Battery replacement should be next step. Hopefully that is all it is. New battery is $10 or less.

    It's not under warranty anymore, they may help you or they may offer you a replacement for a price but none of that is guaranteed.

    Try anyway, but I do believe you'll want to replace the battery one way or another.

    I'm not looking to spend alot of money if I can avoid it. I am planning on upgrading next month anyway. As along as the battery is cheap.

    Battery ain't that much if you can do it that will save you the money. YouTube an goggle can show ya how to do it. Doesn't look to hard to do.

    If you're comfortable with opening the phone up then like 2k1 said it's a cheap thing to replace.

    I haven't actually opened up an iP4 yet, though I plan on it in a month or two to do some color swapping, and have seen some videos on how to do it. It honestly looks much easier than the 3G/3GS so it shouldn't be a too big of a problem if you're a handy person anyhow.

    I have never taken an iPhone about and don't know if I could. Only way if I'm giving a broken one or something like that. Then I would go into it.

    Well I have to do it bc of reselling. One of the iPhones of my family member the home button is starting to suck real bad so I figure I'd color swap it since I have to take the whole dang thing apart to replace the home button lol. I wouldn't pay anybody to do it either, they either overcharge or they might break something lol. Better I break it than somebody else.

    Oh yeah? Does he like do business with that? How much does he charge? I kind of wanna do them on my own just so I can learn because I like to do that stuff, but at the same time I'd rather have an experienced pro.

    The i4 is rediculously easy to take the battery out of, take the back plate off (2 screws at the bottom and slide up) then theres one screw holiding in the battery (silver plate piece right next to the bottom left of the battery, unscrew that, then carefully lift the connector that the screw holds in (flathead screw driver works well ) then simply pull the battery out using the clear tab.
    Hit the thanks button if i helped in anyway
