    I has ordered a battery for my wife. Got the tools. Video I was watching said it was really simple ( Having replaced the hard drive and upgraded the RAM in my 2008 unibody, I thought easy peasy) blah blah.

    So I unscrewed it, took the battery out. This is when I realised I have the wrong battery (4, instead of for the 4s) and am watching the wrong video, as this 4s that I've opened has 2 screws to unscrew rather than 1.


    I took the little antenna connector out. (mentioned here @ 2:00 https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone+4+Battery+Replacement/3141)

    But I don't know how/where to put it back in!

    I've put the old battery back in and put all the screws back. And phone seems to be working? What purpose does it serve?

    Anyway, Presume it needs to go back in, so help would be appreciated (preferably with pictures).

    Thank you.

    Thanks. Just waiting for the right battery to arrive now. What about the antenna connector?
