My Problem

I have an old iPhone 3 that I use on wifi to stream music in my garage. It was no longer booting because it wouldn't charge at all.

My Fix

I got the battery and all the tools I needed from iFixit. I didn't realize until I started to take it apart that the case looked like it was bulging. When I opened the case (the suction cup worked great) I could see the main circuit board was bulging up and the screws literally popped out as they were loosened. I figured the main board was toast. I followed the iFixit directions and the new battery went in without any problem. iPhone works great again.

My Advice

Take your time and follow the instructions very carefully. There are subtle differences in the (extremely tiny) screws that are nicely pointed out in the online instructions. Made reassembly a breeze. Also be very careful with the ribbon connectors on older phones. Mine were somewhat brittle.

My Problem

It fell out of my back pocket into the toilet

My Fix

My fix went very well

My Advice

Read through carefully first and organize. Make sure nothing else is broken before you order parts- I didn't know the screen got cracked.

My Problem

In an attempt to have me join the 21st century, my wife gave me her iphone to use instead of my flipphone as she upgraded to a new one. The battery didn't keep a charge and I hate to throw things away if they can be repaired. Having sort of rescued an ipod Nano that went through the wash with one of your fixit kits, I decided to give this repair a try.

My Fix

I tend to be meticulous so the repair took a bit longer than the projected completion time. Reconnecting #3 was a bit of a bugaboo. The replacement battery seems to hold its charge and other functions work. Success!

My Advice

Read reviews of others. The tips such as using a magnetic pad to hold the tiny screws were helpful.

My Problem

I suspected my battery was going. I went to AT&T. They don't fix. They only sell new. They referred me to Apple. I called Apple. After working my way through the automated telephone system and giving them the serial number of my iPhone, the system told me I needed to Pay $29.95 for a one time conversation with a technician. I uttered a bad word into the phone, found ifixit on the internet and ordered a battery and repair kit for $24.95 (including postage) . My grandson who was home from college did the repair using your tutorial. It went without a hitch. My daughter who told me no one replaces iPhone batteries was amazed. I was delighted. My grandson was thrilled to see inside an iPhone. Thank you ifixit.

My Fix

Great - see above.

My Advice

Don't listen to people who tell you iPhone batteries can't be replaced.

My Problem

Original battery would not hold a charge (after many years of use)

My Fix

After viewing your battery replacement instructions all went well

My Advice

This was a very easy job

My Problem

The battery had swelled in my wife's old iphone

My Fix

Step by step instructions are easy to follow and understand. No problems and the new battery was an exact fit.

My Advice

Take your time, stay organized and work in a well lit area. Have fun!

My Problem

My original battery had swelled so much it actually was pushing the screen up.

My Fix

IFixit guides were spot on as usual. Very straightforward to get to the battery. It resisted being removed but my metal spudger won that battle. The new battery was a perfect fit. Exactly like the original, it installed without any fuss.

My Advice

Take your time, work in a well lit area and have fun.

My Problem

Battery replacement on my iPhone 3GS

My Fix

Repair went without a hitch! Received the repair kit with battery included.... watched a video a couple times. From start to finish it took about 45 minutes. Turned on the phone and Presto!!!!! Battery seems to be holding a charge well and doing a great job!!! Thanks ifixit!

My Advice

Watch the video at least two times to make sure you got it down as there are about 10 screws and 7 cables.... nice thing though, all the cables are numbered, so when you re-assemble, just reverse the order of steps!
