Battery connector doesn't match phone's connector

I bought my daughter a used iPhone 4S. Battery won't hold charge. Bought replacement battery, but phone's connector for battery lacks holes for 2 Phillips screws, is a different shape, but connector "fits". Interestingly, the battery conn. was held down by clear 2 sided tape, since it lacked screws to hold it down. Is this a modified phone?. Phone won't restart. Get Apple on screen, turns off, then apple reappears. See photos. Notice there are no holes for the two Phillips screws on the phone.

robwageneck, according to the number you supplied (A1349) your phone is actually a iPhone 4 A1349: iPhone 4 (CDMA model), not a 4s. You most likely have the iPhone 4s battery which will not fit the iPhone 4. Check the attached images:

iPhone 4s

Hope this helps, good luck.

Thanks. The phone was sold to us as a 4s, it runs Siri, but must be a 4. Thanks for all your help.
