I've had my iPhone 4s since May. Its worked pretty well in the time since, only problems being a few random restarts every now and then, but nothing so alarming that I was truly scared for my phone.
I updated my phone to iOS 6 the day it was released, and other than the usual "won't activate with carrier" problem a lot of people had, which I quickly resolved, its been working fine.
This morning my iPhone shut down on its own, and would not respond to its normal method of powering up. The phone was only unplugged for 20 minutes, had about 99% battery left before it shut down. I plugged the phone in and there was no response. I eventually held down Home and Power for awhile and it booted up, worked fine. About 20 minutes ago it shut down again, same deal. Wouldn't turn on, had to do the home+power method.
What could the problem be?
Does it have to be replaced? I hope not. I didn't invest in apple care and can't afford to buy a new phone.
If you decide to take your iPhone 4S to Apple for evalution it will be looked at with full Warrany in consideration. Because all iPhone 4S have full Warranty Coverage with Apple currently. Apple Warranty is 1 yr, and all iPhone 4S have yet to reach one year.
Thats good to hear. Thanks.
I want to hear what people here have to say about this though. A quick google search and skim and it appears a lot of people have had this problem over the last few years.
