What to do if your iPhone suddenly vibrates continuously

Has your iPhone 3GS suddenly started vibrating and won’t stop? I know someone who has an iPhone 3GS and this is what exactly happened to her. Just this morning, her iPhone suddenly started vibrating and wouldn’t stop. Then the screen suddenly went blank and the unit was getting hot.

She decided to take the iPhone to a mobile phone repair shop and told her that the problem was with the battery. She was being charged Php 1,500.00 to replace the iPhone 3GS’ battery. She decided to take it to another repair shop when her husband arrived.

The husband brought the iPhone to a phone repair shop that he knows. As it turned out there has been several cases of the non-stop vibrating of the iPhone 3GS lately (the technician told him that he was the 19th case in the last several weeks).

The solution: The technician plugged the iPhone and did a hard reset. After doing the hard reset, the iPhone 3GS was working again. So in case this happens to you, just try doing a hard reset first before going into panic mode – might save you some money 🙂
