    hi im new here and i can't seem to find a resolution to my problem on any of the forums.

    on my iphone jailbroken 3g 3.1.3, the battery is fully charged and whenever i run any application, dies on it after a few minutes of use. when it turns back on it says there is only 20% battery life on it. this started happening after i updated to 3.1.

    iv'e turned off location services and push and it still occurs.

    iv'e noticed it lasts longer on edge than on 3g but it still occurs.

    ive restored it multiple times to the official firmware but the problem has not been resolved.

    it might just because of battery but is there anything else i should do before i shell out another $200 for a new phone?
    :(:(:(:(:(:(

    If your iPhone is still under warranty try calling Apple about it.

    I doubt it's under warranty being a 3G.

    Forgot to mention that you can get an out of warranty battery replacement for ~85 with tax. You could go that route.
