I had a iphone 4 for about 9 month and it started to drain the batterie in about 50% in 15min and it was overheating and wouldnt take the charge.. it showed that it was charging, but the %ig wasnt going up...

 

i went to apple and i got a replacement phone last week
now i have the exact same problem, its not taking any charge, it shows that it is charging, but its not..

i restarted and restored the phone.... what causes the problem?

iPhone 4, iOS 5.1.1

    The problem says it, particularly when it recurred in a replacement phone. Battery eating instability is a classic sign of jb.

    Why do you say it's not charging?  What does the phone show?

    Restore the phone in iTunes, first using a backup, and if the problem persists, as a new phone, without using a backukp.

    Get the phone, cable, and charger replaced.  Maybe you were extremely unlucky and your first replacement phone had the same defect as the original.

     

    However, when people repetitively  get the same problem on replaced equipment, it means the problem is at your end and there is something you're doing that you're not telling us....

    Maybe the charging circuit in your car stereo is defective and damaging the phone.
