iPhone 4S Dock Connector Replacement

25 minutes - 1 hour


My Problem

The phone would not consistently charge from either a computer or wall charger.

My Fix

The step-by-step photo guide is great. Getting the battery out was difficult. The left side of the battery bent alot while freeing it from the adhesive. After closing the unit I realized that the tiny rubber spacer had fallen out. The phone works fine without it.

My Advice

Two things:

• After removing the battery, pay some attention to flattening it. The slightest bit sticking up ay prevent the cover from sliding closed.

• Please suggest a method of adhering the tiny rubber spacer to the ribbon cable. Would a tiny spot of Elmer's glue be smart? I dunno.
