My phone has been working great for about a year now and all of a sudden it's started behaving badly and I really need help from someone knowledgeable.
Software v1.02 with the goofed baseband done with the original sofware unlock running on Rogers network in Canada. Nothing was changed recently, the problems didn't start after being dropped, new software or anything like that. Computers tested with are XP and Vista
What have I noticed?
-gets too hot to hold when listening to music or youtube through phone speaker; locks up and shuts down after a few minutes
-heat originates at the top of the phone around the apple logo on the back
-works fine when using external headphones for above apps
-talking on the phone and wifi are also fine
-connecting it to a charger [wall or pc] doesn't indicate charging status on the phone and I don't think it actually does charge when powered up but it does charge when the phone is turned off
-itunes won't recognise it [same install of itunes works with another 2G iphone I have] and Windows doesn't recognise the usb device
-won't connect to Edge [tells me I'm not subscribed although edge works with the same sim in other phones including iphone]
-every once in a while I hear something from the speaker that sounds like digital static of some sort... phone heats up as this happens
-everything else seems normal
What have I tried/done since discovering the problem?
-reboot phone [no change]
-power-home reboot [no change]
-removed all software exept apple original and installer app [installer upgraded to latest version] [no change]
-reboot to recovery mode and connect to pc [itunes still doesn't recognise]
-updated to 7.7 itunes [still no go]
I'm getting desperate for ideas here, please please please please help if you can
