Battery connector missing help

Hello, this is my first post! I have recently brought a cheap iphone 4 gsm model, there are a couple of problems with it that I'm trying to fix. Firstly the battery connector is missing so I've ordered one online to replace it, how do I go about replacing this? Where will I need to solder?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello thank you very much for the feedback, video was very usefull, my solder points seem to be in a reasonable state compared to the phone in the video, however, my new battery connecter arrived today so I tried taking the battery out of the phone and trying to connect them before soldering to ensure they fitted. Unfortunately they don't seem to click into place, I compared my working battery (the bit that fits onto the connector) with the non working phones battery and they didn't seem to match, the gold bits on the battery connection flap look flat. New battery or am I being dumb?

Possibility that you have a 4S battery instead of a 4? what are the numbers on the old and new battery?

I was being a tool! It wast an iPhone 4S battery but for some reason the connection on the battery itself was flattened, there were no holes for the battery connector to go into. Ebay it is!

Could you tell me what apparatus I need to solder? Flux etc?
