My Iphone 4S is 1 month old, it's been working fine until the other night when I tried connecting it to a charger. My concern started when I didn't hear the "beep" you get when it charges. I have tried the hard reset a number of times and even used different cables to see if it was a cable issue and still can't resolve the problem.
Before I found this forum I had searched / googled to see if people had similar issues with their Iphone 4S and it seems some do. I read that, while connected to a charger, do a hard reset and you get a blank screen with a picture of a large battery with a thin red line at the bottom of the battery and the little lightning bolt or sign that it's charging, from there I was supposed to leave it in that state for at least 15 mins. Needless to say that I did, no change, then I left it all night and still no charge.
The battery icon, when the phone is on shows as if phone was not connected to power and does not sync with my macbook when connected to the USB either.
Note: Since the charge is very low, the phone turns itself off once it goes below the 1% level and having left it on the charger it switches itself on after a few minutes and shows a very low% of battery like 7% and goes lower till it reaches lowest point 1% and the cycle begins again.
Now, it is completely dead, no apple logo of the hard restart or occasional home screen, nothing.
It is quite distressing cause if I must return the phone for a newer one on the warranty it would take me longer to use my iphone again as it was purchased in NYC but I am in Nairobi, Kenya.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance!
