    I sent my iPhone 4S in to have the wifi repaired. When it came back everything worked A-okay initially. Then during a second charge, I would plug it into a charger and then nothing for a VERY long time- it wouldn't turn on or show any signs of life. Then I came back later and the iPhone showed a 100% charge. Once I removed it from the cord, the iPhone died at once. Later I put it in and waited for an eternity for the 100% charge to show up. The top kept saying searching... I wanted to try removing the AT&T SIM but by the time I came back the phone was dead again (I hadn't taken it out of the cord) I've tried USB and my PC isn't recognizing it (yes, it usually does.) Right now I'm waiting again for the phone to light up while it's in the charger. WHAT IS GOING ON?! Thanks! :)

    UPDATE: The phone keeps showing the Apple logo trying to turn on while charging but never comes to the slide to unlock screen..

    Who did the repair, was it Apple? If so, was the iPhone repaired or replaced? If it was replaced, then the serial number will be different from the original you had.

    You say you had your iPhone repaired. If the work was carried out by Apple or one of their Authorised Service Providers (as it should have been!), just return it and any fault will be corrected. The original repair is covered by an Apple warranty.

    Ya.. I wasn't under warrenty and Apple was charging an outrageous amount so I mailed it into one of those repair places. Whoops! What can I do now?

    I don't know... I'd take it to an apple store and explain what happened. Maybe a genius will pity your situation and give you a replacement at a discount.

    (In the future, get applecare plus!)

    Lesson learned! Take it to Apple or an Authorised Service Provider and get it sorted.
