My Problem

30% battery, I will do a best photo ever! NOPE... because my battery is dead, my iPhone is dead, under this level of charge, i can't do anything!

My Fix

My girlfriend says "I'm ready in 5 minutes", ok... i try to change the battery, but... I'm faster! In 3 minutes I've done, YEAH... WHAAAT? 30%? I've put the wrong one? Ah... ok... is the storage charge... i feel stupid :P

My Advice

Take it easy, is very simple, just like a normal phone!

My Problem

The home button was unresponsive and after 6 months of AssistiveTouch, I was fed up!

My Fix

Let me first say that the repair was successful without any hiccups.

However, I was NOT prepared for the gruelling 2 hours that this repair took. This experience is a brilliant test of patience; you may discover some things about yourself!

The instructions were thorough and exact, but there's no set of instructions that can make this process easy. Don't pretend you're a tech wizard and internally say "I got this" as you order. Heed the warnings on the page; this repair is DIFFICULT and TIME CONSUMING.

The new home button is as good as new. It gives a crisp click and commands your current app to minimise as smoothly as the sun sets (but way faster).

My Advice

1. Get yourself a piece of A4 paper and section off and label each set of screws and parts: keep them together and in order! (THERE ARE A CRAP LOAD OF SCREWS, AND MOST ARE OF VARYING SIZES)

2. Persist. Be strong my friend, you can do this. If you feel like giving up and throwing your phone out the window, plough on. If you feel like crying, plough on. Soon your home button will be as good as new.

My Problem

One phone needed battery another phone needed back panel.

My Fix

Great

My Advice

When in doubt watch ifixit video

My Problem

My old iPhone 4 wasn't holding a charge and the battery was starting to swell a bit.

My Fix

It's dead-easy to swap the battery. I had done this repair before on some friends' phones so it was over and done in like 5 minutes.

My Advice

Don't be too brutal trying to pry the battery out. The adhesive will give way, just be patient.

My Problem

In the span of about a month my battery went from 4 hours of internet use to a point where the phone would not even boot up. The original battery had been in my iPhone 4 since Febuary of 2011. At first, I thought thought it was related to my software update to 7.1.2, but soon realized it had to be something more.

My Fix

I entered the model number on your website and I was directed to parts specifically for my phone. The battery kit came complete with battery and all accessories necessary to successfully complete the task. My phone now has over three days of use before I need to recharge.

My Advice

Watch the video. Use firm pressure while removing the pentalope screws to prevent stripping. Go slow while the adhesive is releasing from the old battery. Gently bend the battery connector ribbon cable to match that of the old battery before installing the new battery into your phone. After charging your battery, make sure to power down your phone and turn it back on so it will reboot.

My Problem

My old battery can't charge well

My Fix

It's an easy repairment, especially with guidance from ifixit site. It's only take around 10 minutes.

My Advice

Thank for the ifixit team.

My Problem

My phone wouldn't hold a charge. It would go from 100% battery life to zero charge. I took the case off and saw the back cover was bulging open on the corner opposite the camera lens.

My Fix

My boyfriend watched the Ifixit video on replacing the battery.

We ordered the replacement kit the video recommended. We ordered it on Monday morning and received it in the mail Saturday (shipped from CA to OH). He replaced the battery according to the video and my IPhone is working good as new, no more bulging case. The process took less than 30 minutes.

My Advice

Saved a lot of money by following the Ifixit video. Didn't realize how easy it could be. Before ordering replacement battery we called the Verizon store and was told they didn't sell or replace batteries. I could buy a new IPhone and if mine was in good shape (iPhone 4), they might give me $18. My phone is in excellent shape and I will keep it, thank you!

My Problem

My wife's iPhone 4 battery was running down very quickly.

My Fix

Smoothly, with two exceptions: 1. A very small part fell off the phone when I removed the two screws holding the old battery connector in place. iFixit's video didn't emphasize this very much; the woman on it only mentioned the 'antenna connector' briefly in passing. I couldn't tell for sure where the part went, or if it was important.

2. I now realize the original iPhone 4 battery connector had 1 tiny screw holding it in place. The replacement battery has what look like 2 holes for screws. This is why I removed the 2 screws on the phone...one of them held the antenna connector, which fell off.

I managed to figure out where it appeared the antenna connector was supposed to attach, and screwed everything down. Fortunately my wife's phone seems to be working fine, so everything turned out well.

The whole process took about 45 minutes or so, with a bit of time being used to deal with the antenna connector issue.

My Advice

I'd suggest that iFixit point out that the configuration of the battery connector attachment plate differs from the Apple OEM battery (2 screw holes vs 1 for OEM). It might also be a good idea to mention the antenna connector and what function it serves.

Unfortunately, my wife needed her phone back in service ASAP, so I was unable to take photos to illustrate the issue.

My Problem

Battery running down after 4 years of use on my iPhone 4. Estimate to get a new battery installed was between $50 and $60 at local repair stores. I thought that was pretty good until I saw the price for a new battery on IFIXIT and how easy it appeared to install it from watching the instructional video. Plus micro tools included free of charge to do the task.

My Fix

Very easy if you have a modicum of patience and are careful as the screws are very tiny. I used a plastic case about 3 inched deep and about 14 inches long to do the job in and avoid loosing a screws. All was as described in the video with exception of the antenna strip. I have no ideas where that was in my Sprint phone.

My Advice

I did the job for half the price of taking it to a store and having someone else install the battery. But you do have to have patience and a steady hand. I'm sort of use to working with small devices so it was not at all a problem for me. Newly installed battery is doing much better than old one and I'm very happy with the results. Sorry I was not able to take a photo. My phone camera was well sort of out of commission.

My Problem

My wife's iPhone 4 battery was not holding a charge for very long. There were times when she would just let it stay plugged in and use it that way.

My Fix

After watching the ifixit video on how to replace the battery and using the tools provided by ifixit, the repair was relatively easy. I was a little concerned about the grounding clip, but with a little patience, that worked out also. I replaced the two original Apple pentalobe screws with the two Phillips screws that came in your Liberation kit. The entire process took about ten minutes.

My Advice

I did watch the ifixit video a couple of times and read the battery replacement text. I also watched and read this: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ip...

This video helped a little bit more with how to handle the grounding clip and how to avoid some potential problems. Check it out.
