2g phone was one of the first ones so unless you already replaced the battery - its time. The lifecycle of the battery is about 400 charges,

Considering the phone is approaching the 4 year mark, I would suggest you replace the battery as they tend to wear off from their original performances over the years. :)

Just a little anecdote, my friend had a similar issue with his iPhone 2G and decided to replace the battery himself. He got to the stage where the battery required soldering and accidentally short-circuited the mainboard with his solder. He ended up throwing the whole thing out...
