    You can buy the replacement to do yourself of send it in for them to fix it.

    Wouldn't trust any sources other than fixit or apple if I'm honest.

    iPhone battery replacements

    I actually came here to see what people were saying about iPhone battery replacement, have any of you ever tried to replace one? I have, several times, it really isn't that difficult! But then my wife says I always say that and that I don't realize what seems simple to me isn't to a lot of other people. So, here is what I can tell you that I have learned, a replacement battery can be bought just about anywhere for an IPhone for about $5.00, yes I said $5.00. The tools cost about $15.00, the hardest part is dealing with the size of the screws when removing and re-inserting them! If you think a flea is small! Wait until you see these screws! If you are dexterous, be careful of static shock, and watch several repair videos online, you shouldn't have a problem. Now if you want to get a Apple brand battery, good luck! That isn't going to happen unless your related to an authorized Apple repair person/company, and if you are why have you read this far! Seriously!
