is 30G a 4th? how long for battery delivery in the USA?


I'm living in Thailand and unable to get a new battery. (Apple's policy here is to sell you a new iPod.) I have two Qs--

1. My iPod is 4th generation, a1099 but it is 30G. Is that right? You do not list it so I am thinking I'm mistaken.

2. I'm not a geek (way not, dinosaur-type) but am thinking of having my husband buy your battery and bring it to me from the US. How long for an order to reach him? Sub Question: can a regular joe install the thing?

Is this a good question?

Apple's policy EVERYWHERE is to sell you a new iPod. It's built-in obsolescence. You're asking the right question!

Thank you! I ordered the right one and will know in three weeks (when my husband brings it from the US to Thailand) whether or not I can install it. Your response gives me the encouragement I need!

The A1099 iPods are iPod Photos. They are identical in form factor, but the Photos have a color display. Your iPod uses this battery.

As for shipping, it depends on where he is. Please see the shipping section of our Sales Policies for an estimate.

I believe that anyone can install the battery. Having done it myself hundreds (if not thousands) of times, I speak with confidence that if you follow the guide, you or your husband can do it!

I hope this helps!
