Speaker wasn't working. Thought I could just fix it myself and save some money.
Repair was pretty scary. I was opening my phone up!!! Never did it before. I had no idea how small those dang screws were gonna be. So be aware of that. Also, work in a clean, no clutter enviroment. My screws went flying a couple time, I found them though, shweeh! My phillips/screw drivers were not magnetic to hold the screws. Make sure you get those! Tons of screws for this particular job. I had a random piece that is not in the guide, it's that one piece that goes over part of the battery connector. Glad someone posted about that!!! Saved me! Also, ended up with 2 extra screws, haha! Turned phone on, works like a champ!!
Lots of advice is in the "how did it go" section I wrote.
I think it would be really awesome if you had the guide go from fix to back to the beginning. Grateful for the guide though!
The iPhone 4S battery would randomly shut off between 20%-30%. Plug it in and it would start charging at the percent when it shut down. Diagnostic & Usage Data would say list the crash as battery related.
The antenna reception seemed to be spotty with wifi and the cellular service.
The replacement of both the antenna and battery were very simple. With the use of tweezers and a magnet (strike the screwdriver alongside the magnet to help hold the srew) the installation of the very small screws was a lot easier.
The battery is holding its charge longer and the reception and clarity are a lot better.
Go slow, take your time, and use the supplied tools that come with the battery kit.
