It's not charging properly, give the charging socket a quick clean out, soft brush or toothbrush should do it, see if that works.

If it doesn't try putting the phone in Restore mode (power button and home button, hold both for 10 seconds the let go of power keeping hold of home, after five seconds plug USB lead in to computer with iTunes on it keeping hold of home button), this should let the iTunes software sort out any issues.

DO NOT do this if you have jail broken your phone, as you could quite easily end up with a nice brick if you update the software, if you HAVE jail broken it you can use the Restore method but DO NOT click on Upgrade Software.

If this doesn't make sense give me a pm in the morning and I'll have a look when I get back.

My 3GS has done the same exempt mine comes on for five minutes then re boots, I took it to a shop to get looked at but he opened it and no damage has been done so he is going to "flash" which resets everything and hopefully this should fix it. If this works then it's going to cost 15.

I'll let you know about 5 o'clock if it's fixed it

I just got it back and it's fixed....woo hoo.

He "flashed" it which means he wiped everything off the phone and restored it to factory settings. I'm just restoring it via iTunes so all my numbers and aps get put back on.

It was 15 a place called Starlight in Birkenhead market, their number is 0151-647-9399. I went to a few places before him and they had no idea what was up with it but they could fix it for 60 in four days.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.

They don't charge if they can't fix it so you have nothing to lose, good luck.

Hi, you should just need it flashing, if you can't do it just bring it into mine and we'll do it for, if you want to use the place someone else has recommended (and pay them 15) then that's not a problem but everyone who uses an iPod/iTunes/iPhone should know, or be shown, how to drop the phone into restore mode, we do it about 3-4 times a day (donations to the tea float to say thanks always nice smile )

Once you've done this it should sort it out, then all you have to do then is use the backup on your iTunes at home to put everything back on.

I only spent 15 on getting it flashed, I dont't know how or what flashing is so 15 is money well spent in my opinion.
