    I was wondering if anyone else has had any kind of shut down issue with their iphone 3Gs and if they had what they did about it?

    My iphone started to shut down when I accessed the internet for any reason. IE: searching for something on the web, looking at emails, looking for a TV program on the Xfinity ap, etc. Then last week it shut down and kept shutting down when I accessed my audiobook. If I hit the home button it says the battery is dead but in order to get it back up I have to plug it into power and when it gets powered up it has 70%+ power in the battery (whatever was the case when it went down).

    I have restored and jailbroke it. Then while I was in the middle of unlocking it, it shut down again. (This is all done untethered so it has to use WiFi to do it) So I have obviously NOT fixed the problem with restoring it.

    Any one have any suggestions? Any help would be appreciated. I am running the OS 4.0.1 so I canít take it to Apple for a replacement because the New OS is not unlockable. (I am on T-Mobile)

    OK, thanks. That was my next guess. Guess I'll try to find a battery somewhere and get it replaced.

    I've been having the same issue (I was on 4.2.1 previously). I updated to 4.3.3 and still have the same problem. Just ordered a new battery from ifixit, so I'll be trying that when it comes in.
