Just got a used 4s but i kinda want a new battery.
Yes. New batteries cost $80 though. If it's jailbroken, they won't repair it.
Thanks. I did not know this. Is it same-day service? Or do they mail it to Guangdong?
Unless they've recently changed their policy, they don't actually give you a new battery. Instead, they capture your old iPhone and give you a service replacement one. I don't know how they would handle "unlocking" your service replacement one, since it'll have a different IMEI number that the original phone that you're leaving with them.
I would think it's same day since changing a battery seems simple. But it would hurt to ask at the Genius Bar.
just buy one and do it yourself. its soooo simple
It's an easy job on the 4 / 4s, as mentioned.
Does that void the warranty if under one?
Hmm not sure they'd be able to tell if you use an OEM battery? Don't know.
Sure someone else will!
If it's under a warranty, then they're almost certainly not going to offer you the battery replacement.
The program is designed for people who have an out-of-warranty device with a battery problem.
If it doesn't meet the criteria for replacement, there's no reason for Apple to offer you a replacement!
