Defective iPhone 4 battery? Won't charge to 100%
I've had my iPhone 4 since launch and never really had any problems with it. But ever since I moved into this house where I get either no service or 1 bar of 3g service (2 at maximum) I noticed that my battery no longer charges to 100%. I charge it every night as I'm sleeping. It will only charge to the 93-96% mark. In fact, it will even decrease WHILE its on the charger! I thought that this was because the iPhone is straining to search for service, so I turned on airplane mode but I get the same problem. I am using my wall charger. Does it sound like I have a defective battery or is there a way to fix it?

The Zagg Invisishield is guaranteed if you have registered it on their website. You can order a replacement shield for free (well, you have to pay shipping) if you phone has to be replaced. I definitely wouldn't let that $30 purchase stop you from exchanging a several hundred dollar phone if it's defective.

Don't forget to try the battery drain first! It can't hurt and you may find that the battery meter just needed calibration
And then no worrying about your invisashield. Which, btw, could have voided your warranty if you got liquid on the moisture indicator.

it is seem that after iphone become a hot spot , more and more people stand out to complain its drawbacks. I think it is not only because iPhone is not perfect, but also people is too cavil.
Hope you can find the best solution faster. in fact, many other cell phone also have such issues
