    A few day ago my phone just unexpectantly shut off and took about an hour to reboot, it's a black iPhone 3GS 32 gb. Now it gotten worse and is just in recovery mode, I've tried restoring it but it gets to a certain point and glitches and stops. I've tried restoring it on my laptop and doesn't help and tried it other CPUs and problem still arises. I'm trying to reboot it in hope that I can still use it. Idk if I should get another phone and them same problem will arise again, any comments are appreciated and advise too.

    there are software programmes such as tiny umbrella that can help in certain circumstances.

    You could arrange an appointment with an apple genius bar for the to take a look for you.

    So how do I use tiny umbrella?

    And also if I were too get another phone and use it on my laptop would the software crash again?

    What error do you get when restoring?

    And how do you know it is in recovery mode?

    There are a lot of threads in this forum with issues similar to yours, try to read them first and probably you will learn something from them.
