    Hi, forget about all my recent posts, I have a 3gs, jailbroken with redsn0w custom ipsw, baseband 6.15 and/or 5.13.04, on 5.1.1. When I unlock with ultrasn0w, it caused the iphone to turn off, i thought this would not be a battery problem as it works fine before the unlock, but now i am thinking it is as everytime it searches or gets reception, it turns off, and when no service, it stays on. But also, when i am plugged into power, it works normally, just as new. Do you guys think this would be a battery problem? I think so, so I will see what you say, then will get it changed if you can confirm this. Thanks for your time and help

    If so then just report the other posts as duplicate threads to have them removed if supported to be so.

    As to the OP's issue i suggest you do some searching as the knowledge your after is available on here and on the net. To me its simple. If your battery life was acceptable what have you done recently to your iPhone for you to notice advanced battery drain.

    Process of Elimination will resolve your issues.

    We cannot say if your battery is shot. You would need to seek assistance from an Apple genius.

    Thanks, and im new to macrumours and are not sure how to delete, the reason for duplicate posts are that my situation keeps changing, sorry :(,

    okay, bout the os, another thing is that it goes from 98% charge to 0% charge in 8 hours turned on standby, wifi off, bluetooth off, I think it is, im not to good with this stuff, but would the extra power for the "searching" cause the phone to turn off, oh well, Ill try the battery change, and about contacting apple, this is a jailbroken iphone, thats most likely out of the question

    and here has been the process- got in early this year from brother-jailbroke and unlock- works fine- after a month notice about a random boot every week, but didnt stop iphone working- 1 week ago, it turned off radomonly, then had to restore, change baseband, upgrade,unlock and BAM! DOesn't work, i did everything properly! HELP!

    Just click on your duplicate post and add a short note for the moderator to remove it.

    If you need assistance from apple for a jb iPhone then just restore as new and then your all stock again.

    If your jb then maybe a tweak is causing issues. Try removing them one by one until the re boots stop.

    Honestly, you might just be one of those people who should stay clear of jailbreaking/modifying their iPhone.

    To fix your mess (and also to save us from continuous multiple threads in the future):
    Google your Model # to figure out which carrier sold your phone (unless you already know)
    Buy (from ebay) or borrow an active or inactive sim from that carrier
    Put the phone in pwnedDFU mode using Redsn0w
    Restore the phone and choose set up as new, do not restore to any backup.
    Use the sim to activate it.
    Sell the phone and buy one that is already IMEI unlocked.

    Just being honest, some people do not have the tech savvy for this.
    And it is not just me, look at the responses from others about your multiple threads.
    Also, Redsn0w is a jailbreak tool, it does not and cannot unlock so you cannot have unlocked 10-20 phones with it.

    If you really want to learn how to jailbreak phones and how to solve the occasional problems, read every thread about similar issues here and on http://blog.iphone-dev.org/.

    Chances are someone else has had the issue before and the jailbreak community has already posted the solution for them.

    Sorry i mean jailbreaking with redsn0w unlocking with ultrasn0w, but i've made progress with my iPhone, after opening it up and taking the battery out (yes, i DO know what im doing for those that don't think so) its working better after just leaving the battery out for 5mins but it still reboots, not as often though, and also i found out this is not rebooting, it is in fact respringing as it doesnt require a sim pin on start up, so I have decided to get a new battery and that should defiantly fix this. So people, do not think you know every1 here, we have all different lives, I may not be the best at language, but am good with iphones, so, just don't make those judgements in future to someone you don't know, and the topic has been resolved, so NO more threads thank you, and to the people that were helpful, thank you again for your time and help :)

    Super, Good luck !

    Next time you have an issue, if you can't find the solution, make a thread, but give us some time to respond.
    Some folks confuse this with a real time tech support desk.
