Ok.. my 3GS iphone is 2,5 old. I had to factory reset it when he was 2 and it put IOS 5 in it which made it a bit sluggish, but worse - the battery started to drain rapidly. However a month or two ago it started switching off on 10, 20, 30 % batery ..
and now it will switch of on 80-90% battery :/ - if I don't touch it !
If I charge it to 100%, it usually lasts only till I attempt to connect to internet. In a nutshell - its only working while on the charger.

Is it the battery ? Or some connections ? It was never opened. The only thing that doesnt work properly is the mute button contact (the icon of sound keeps showing up and dissapearing).
Should I just have the batery changed ?

thanks :)

Either battery or dock connector needs replaced ( 6.50$ for dock connector online) 10$ or under for battery

Hope it's that simple :) Ill give a few bucks more and have it done by pros, so they'll fix it, cuz I may mess up with reassembling ..
Thank u :)
