    Default my battery everytime is red...

    Problem is whith my iPhone 3g. Some time ago it began to show that the battery is should be charged. I have charged it, but still it is red (like less than 20 %) but it works normal. The problem here is that I don't know if the battery is really empty or nor, and if I should charge it or again not). So what should I do?
    Thanks

    Sounds like you should at least take it to apple and have it looked at

    Have you tried a restore? Sometimes it helps with weird issues like that. My iPhone 4 had great battery life in the beginning, but after a couple months it started getting horrible. Did a restore and somehow it fixed the issue. Of course, my battery was showing the correct charge though. I would try a restore, then call Apple if it doesn't help.

    Wierd. Does the battery still last as long as it used to?

    If the circuit in the phone is broken and you keep charging it, it could be quite dangerous. If the battery has failed then you should know pretty quickly as its capacity will really decrease.
