    I think my iPhone 3GS's battery just died forever because it just doesn't charge any more - black screen.
    If I get a Mophie Juice Pack external battery, might the iPhone come back to life...?
    Thanks :eek:

    Hmm... I'm not expert on this, so if anyone wants to correct me, feel free. if the iPhone's battery doesn't charge anymore, then I think that the Mophie Juice Pack wouldn't work as it just is basically an external battery to charge the iPhone from.
    If you desperately need your iPhone to work, you could always take it into an Apple Store/Service Centre and have the battery replaced?
    Hope this helps :)

    When you say the battery is dead, do you mean that it doesn't charge, or that it works, but lasts for a very short period due to being so old?

    battery dead

    Thanks for your reply!
    I meant the battery is probably dead because my iPhone 3GS just shut down suddenly and now won't charge at all (with power outlet / computer). The screen stays completely black with no charging sign or anything.

    They'll probably charge you for the battery.

    Probably should just buy a new phone instead.
