There is a lot of talk about iphone not having a replaceable battery but in my 14 or so years experience of owning phones ALL with replaceable batteries, I have never brought a new battery for a phone. I think Iv'e had seven phones, three Nokias, an ericsson, two NEC's and an LG. (all very very mediocre) Why? Well when I got to the point where the battery was dead I could no longer get the said battery-Oh its obsolete mate, you will have to upgrade. The only time I had a new battery was when the Three network sent me a new larger battery for a NEC e606 phone which was their first model on the newly introduced, new fangled 3G service back in 2002/03 (yes over five years ago in little ol backward Australia). Interesting that they had power consumption problems and the battery was huge. So I conclude from this that the replaceable battery is purely an emotional crutch for us foolish buyers which the cell phone makers know you will never be able to use. In fact call me cynical but I think the manufacturers use the battery life to force people into changing handsets.It's very hard to find replacement batteries which is a deliberate policy, at least apple offer a replacement service.. Anyone else have a similar experience?
