    Hi, i've had my iphone 4 since first day of launch june 2010 but i think the battery is now starting to fade a little. It's easily always lasted the whole day but now it seems to be getting to like 20% by 6pm at night which it never used to. Since i charge it every night it's possible that it's running out of good life.

    Anyone know if it's possible to get a replacement battery in an apple store without replacing the whole phone? If so, how much will it cost? (i'm in UK)

    Cheers!

    If I were you, go to a local repair shop and have them fix it. In US, its about US$40... dont know how much will they charge you in UK

    If your iPhone4 also shows blemishes or has other slight issues, thus making it extra worth it to you to turn in, Apple will replace your iPhone with a refurbished (one that has a new battery) for $69. They appear brand new cosmetically.

    It might be your better route.
