Thread: Is this a battery issue?

  1. #1
    Default Is this a battery issue?
    I have a 3GS, Purchased on launch day. Lately it will randomly shut off. I have started testing different things. It seems that anything that draws more power will cause the phone to shut off. If I leave it plugged in it never shuts down.

    Does it sound like it needs a new battery? If so who would recommend sending to for repair? I don't really want to spend 90.00 on the phone through Apple. I've found a few places on the Internet, but not sure what companies are trust worthy.
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

    If it was purchased on launch day its possible that the battery could have become faulty since that was a while back. I dont know about any repair shops but you can always look around locally if you dont wanna take it back to Apple.

    I should also have added, everything else works perfect. I can charge the battery & it will last 4-5 hours of use. I only have a problem when I use any power intense apps. Such as GPS.

    Is there any way to test the phone to see if it's something else.
