iphone not charging or taking to long to charge? - May 13th 2015, 09:12 AM

My sister gave me her old iphone about a month or so ago. It has been working fine but the past few times I've gone to charge it will charge to a certain amount like 77% percent then seem to stop charging or slow down charging... or other times it will simply tell me it cannot charge as the power device is not suitable yet I am using an iphone charger ?? Does anyone else know how to fix this ??? or what to do
the only way i can get it to charge at the moment is to diconnect it and reconnect it about 5 odd times to make it fully charge or charge enough so that it lasts me long enough...

Batteries do not last forever. Replace it and you should be fine.

Before you do that, try using another charger.

I just got a new phone and switched from the iphone to the droid. But my iPhone would only charge to 90% and you couldn't make it charge more. The more you charge it the worse it will be. I charged my phone every night and I'm pretty sure that's what caused it. Honestly I think your best bet is to replace the phone because you can't replace a battery in iPhones.


Don't lose who you are, in the blur of the stars
Seeing is deceiving, dreaming is believing,
It's okay not to be okay
Sometimes it's hard, to follow your heart
Tears don't mean you're losing, everybody's bruising,
Just be true to who you are

Before you ditch the phone I would replace the charger. My phone was dying really quickly and not fully charging but it was resolved when I got a new charger.
