Had a quick look via the parts link, I believe pastes like these:

Arctic Silver Thermal Paste

don't actually have any adhesive properties, they are more designed for processors etc

In most cases with the normal i4 I find the battery has previously been removed/replaced and not stuck down and it hasn't caused any issues.

Arctic Silver Thermal Paste

3.5 gram Arctic Silver thermal paste tube. Thermal paste forms a continuous, conductive layer between a processor and its head sink, improving cooling performance and keeping your important chips from overheating. Whenever you remove a heat sink, it's ver — 50+ available at 8.95 each.

it's really thin double sided tape

any sort of glue that is fairly strong, but is easy to remove again will do

i use thin 3m double sided tape personally and i feel it's good

this is what I use if the adhesive is not there well enough to hold strong or it's worn out like crazy

usually enough adhesive remains in the phone tough
