    I replaced my iphone 3gs battery with one found on ebay that was not working, so I put m old battery back, now my iphone starts heating and makes a strange sound when i connect 4-th connector(that comes from charger). Please help.

    I would refer to the ifixit guide to make sure you connected everything correctly.


    If you did and it's still having issues, you might be able to take it into a repair shop and have them fix it for you.

    Another option would be to use Apple's battery replacement service: https://www.apple.com/batteries/service-and-recycling/

    That's unfortunate. Hopefully it can be fixed. I used on of iFixit's batteries as a replacement in my 3GS in December, I'd recommend getting one from them if your phone is salvageable after this issue.

    At this point, wouldn't it be cheaper to just upgrade to a 4 or 4s?
