You probably need to replace the battery.

don't replace on your own if you have no idea what you're doing. risky! lol.

options:

1. ask your nerdy-techie officemate/classmate to do it for you provided you're beside him when he opens your iDevice.

2. if you have the time, there are lots of do-it-yourself videos online to help you with an a-b-c tutorial

3. have it changed by a non-apple affiliated neighborhood professional tech specializing on iDevices

don't bring it to apple, god knows what they're going to do with your phone specially if it's bricked

Don't take it to apple. Take it to a regular cell phone repair shop.

My battery it's the same thing on my 3GS, turns off with heavy apps, with less than 50%, i turn it on again and says that have no battery, have to plug it and after a wile it turns on.

I Did buy a ORIGINAL battery from eBay and it just's reboots all the time... The seller sold me a faulty battery!

Will now buy an 1600MAH, but i'm not sure wich one is better Original VS AfterMarket.

Thanks.
