    Hi,

    I have a problem that my iphone 4s shuts itself down while the battery still remains (sometimes at 8% or 10%). I have tried restored and set up as new phone but it doesnt work. I have also tried draining the battery for 1 day but as soon as I plugged it in, the phone boots up and says it has 8% or 10% charge already...it just starts charging from where it is left at I think. Any idea how can I fix this ? Now I can only use 90% of the battery and then the phone is dead :(

    Many thanks

    You tried just about everything you could possibly try to troubleshoot it. It is possible your phone came with a faulty battery. At this point I suggest a trip (or call) to Apple to have it diagnosed.

    Now it seems that it always starts charing at 10%. Just 5 mins ago, I played some game and it got down to 6% and turn off, but as soon as I plug it in, it starts charing at 10%. Don't know why...
