    Hi,

    I got problem with mine iPhone 3gs, 32gb. When I use camera, surf the net, or use some apps(Facebook, Zynga poker, Tap Tap revenge) it turns off. Sometimes there are some lines at screen and sometimes it just turns off. If first case I have to hold power button for 10seconds to turn off. After that it shows me charge battery simbol and I have to connect it to power source to continue using it. Every time battery was >50%, so empty battery isn't real problem. I guess it's up to software(I'm at 4.3.5, baseband 05.16.02), not jailbroken or unlocked.
    Can you help me anyhow?

    Thanks everyone!

    It's your battery. I had the same problem. New battery for 6.95 off eBay and problem resolved.

    Did you drop your phone in water or damage it in some way?

    That's for sure? I thought it's up to sofware.
    What iOS are you using now on your iPhone with changed battery?

    @another question; no, it had no physical damages

    Seems odd. Have you tried doing a full DFU restore?
