iPhone battery replacement

with 5 comments

Generally, we can re-charge and replace an extra battery our phones. However, iphone cannot replace an extra (charged) battery─use only one battery─so if I use iphone to play games, use Facebook and tumblr etc., the battery goes dead really fast. I used almost 2 years and I have to charge it every day after school.

If I used less than 1 year, then it includes replacement coverage for a defective battery. But my warranty is out of warranty so I have to pay a battery replacement fee for $89 and plus $10.75 for shipping. The other phones can replace a battery without any fees and arranging services. It is one way to waste money!

  2. I hate cellphone batteries they always die so fast. I agree with you about the IPhone 5 replaceable batteries, that would be great so you don’t have to pay for the install.

    Why do you think phone manufacturers make their batteries so weak?

  3. Thats one of the strangest things that I noticed about the iphone… I always take my battery out of my phone just to restart it… its probably not good for it, but it’s a handy feature haha.

  4. I’ve gone through three different generations of iPhone and battery was always an issue. I dont know if I use it too often but it always drains out so fast. Specially my iPhone 3G! But so far iPhone 4 is doing decent!
