Has everybody had their old iPhone battery replaced? We're still waiting for mine to arrive at the store,but we got my wife’s battery replaced this past week. We had to go 35 or 40 miles across the lake to the Apple store after having ordered the batteries.

It was okay that hers came in and got replaced but not mine, because she was without her phone for a few hours while we hung around at the mall. If both were replaced, we would have both been without our phones for several hours.* There were long lines at the Apple store stretching out the store and down the mall.

She doesn’t think her new battery holds its charge any better than the old one. I think it's too soon to tell.

So, my fellow iPhone users, what and how was your experience with the battery replacement thing?

*Yeah, I know, we went without wireless phones for 50 years or so.

I had an old iPhone 4 model that stopped holding a charge, so I ordered a battery and replaced it myself because the phone was out of warranty anyway.

It's not that difficult to do; all it takes is a few small specialty tools that are inexpensive, such as a small steel spudger

and a mini-driver set like this.

We replaced the battery on my son's 5S before Apple began this program. I'm out $50 but at least the phone seems to be OK.

I follow this guy on YouTube (JerryRigEverything)
He posts lots of technical vids, and I've used his knowledge to repair a couple of phones.

Sometimes I just watch for the enjoyment

Ebay/Amazon sell many battery w/tool kits for Iphones, inexpensive... replaced a battery in my old 4S last Fall myself for about $10-12 complete. Works fine with good lasting charge time. Have upgraded phone since, but not because of a battery issue.

For those of you that had your phone replaced did your phone data get deleted?

No, they transfer everything...photos, contacts, you name it.

It's good practice, tho, to back it up to the cloud just in case your phone takes a dump on you, or it gets washed, or is otherwise damaged and the data is unrecoverable. A big static discharge or a close lightning strike can kill it too.

How you doing, brother?

JAFO: "For those of you that had your phone replaced did your phone data get deleted?"

They told us nothing like this would happen, and my wife did not lose anything from her phone.

On the way over there a thought popped into my head, a paranoid conspiracy theory thought. The port that powers and charges the phone is also a data port. Could Apple get the user's personal information and use it for ill purposes?

Or could the federal government be behind the whole battery replacement program, looking for potential terrorists?
