It really seems like a hardware problem. Have you taken it apart again and reassembled it carefully? Might have displaced something or something isn't connected properly.

ive taken it apart at least 5 times to check and triple check. it only acts up unplugged and with SIM in.

It's the non genuine battery I'm guessing you put in there that's causing the problem...go buy a genuine one and all your problems will be solved

When u say it shuts down, it just turns off immediately, the screen just goes black on it's own? Or do u see a loading circle then it shuts down?

Then I don't think it's a hardware problem, try restoring and jailbreaking/unlocking again

OMG i think im a total idiot!!!! i bout a 3g 16gig iphone and the back cover was cracked. i used it just fine for a week untill i changed the back. not it wont even turn on!! i fallowed the direction to the T and it wont turn on. i plugged it in after i fixed it to see if it was just the batt not attached and the apple logo came up for 5sec and it shut off ;( (the batt is attached)
so now i hav a 2g that wont take a sim and a 3g that wont turn on!!! ;( ;( ;(
any suggestions??????????? or shood i just sell both and start over and NEVER open one again! lol

My reccomendation, sell them for as much as you can both. And buy a 3g you won't open
