Does not work for 3GS or 3G with iOS4,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Li-Ion Replacement Battery Compatible With Apple® iPhone® 3G (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I received this email from eforcity regarding this product, after I sent my second battery back:
"According to our record, the item is for iPhone 3G only; NOT compatible with iPhone 1st Generation; NOT compatible with 3G / 3Gs with firmware 4.0 or newer"
More clarification from eForcity:
"Thank you for contacting us.
The item is compatible with Apple:iPhone 3G 8GB / 16GB
iPhone 3GS 16GB / 32GB, but just not for 3G / 3Gs with firmware 4.0 or newer.
Thank you for your understanding. "
I've never heard of a battery being so software-dependent, but I can definitely state that this does not work with a 3GS/iOS4 - it won't charge and constantly reboots.

I too bought a similar battery from another seller on Amazon
I had the same problem of the phone constantly rebooting every few minutes. What battery should 3gs owners purchase??

good question. Any chance you find an answer yet?

After the two duds here, I went with the more expensive iFixit.com's batteries; it (now almost 2 years later) is beginning to have its own problems, but has been a workhorse up until now.
