My iPhone 3GS was drawn in the toilet while ringing and refused to start-up after I got it back and had dried. The battery apparently wasn't OK as it didn't load anymore.
In addition iTunes was unable to restore the software (communication error)
The replacement of the battery was a 5 minutes job. Only removing the flat cable was a bit tricky. Instructions in the guides are really perfect.
Although the battery was loaded now, I still got the trouble that iTunes couldn't activate the bloody thing.
Removed all USB wires except the one to my iPhone of course, and tried to activate many times. Every time it stopped with the same sort of error, not always at the same process step.
Luckily after 25 times or so, the phone booted and was reacting as as a new one. After that a simple restore of the phone and everything was back to normal.
The morale: don't give up when repairing an Apple machine
Lost sims tray
Everything went great. Thanks for the excellent care.
iPhone SIM tray sucks.
Need to buy a new SIM tray.
Do not buy iPhone
I have two iPhone 3GS with a broken screen and a battery that drains almost instantly after a full charge. Decided to give it a try fixing after watching some videos on the site.
It didn't go as smoothly as compared to the video - but was able to find a way to put things back in order.
The replacement battery that I've got will not fix easily on the sides as compared to the original battery. It will not align properly and is slanted so I spent sometime figuring out how to make it align to the sides. But to no avail. I left it at a slanted position but was glad that it worked.
Just hope that the parts are the same as the original. Easy to fix back and will not give you trouble.
