Easily replaced the battery inside my phone. The new one works good.
Used Youtube video tutorial on iphone disassembly to replace my battery. I also replaced the back cover at the same time. Be careful to place all the small parts together - I had to retry connecting the vibra-motor and loudspeaker.
good bottomline has to be long enough :) bottomline has to be long enough :) bottomline has to be long enough :)
The battery comes with a screw driver and plastic tool. After installation the battery worked fine, although the original Apple battery was better in the beginning, it was a big performance improvement over the old one (1,5 year old). Battery fitted as well as the original one.
Watch out for cable 4. you first have to turn up the little black clip befor you can pull it out. Make sure the connectors are connected correctly.
Cheap and effective way to extend the lifetime of you old 3G iPhone. The replacement procedure is not easy; You have to remove 6 cables and 10 screws and put them back in the same order. It took me about 1/2 an hour, including the cleaning of the inner parts.
It works. My phone now lasts at last 1 day with normal/intense usage. It does have the needed connector to connect to the iPhone (some of the other batteries on DX don't have it, making necessary some soldering work.
Wondering why apple made it so difficult to replace the battery. You'll completelly need to remove the LCD, camera and the motherboard on order to access the battery.
If your iPhone 3G is not lasting a full day this will give you and extra life!
