So you're buying into the FUD too? How about doing some research before flying off the handle.??? C'mon, this is what we'd expect from microcrap...
Apple: iPhone Battery Replacement Plan Details - Gizmodo
Apple - Support - iPhone Out-of-warranty Battery Replacement Program
Who said you lose your data? Did Apple say this?My issue is not with the policy...my issue is that you cannot walk into an Apple store, buy a new battery and install it yourself. You need to have the battery replaced, losing all the data you have on your phone.
Ya. I would probably just charge it every night like my current cell phone, eventually the battery only lasts about two days but if you charge it every night then whatever.By the time a battery requires replacement, most will likely opt for a new iPhone.
It's a non-issue.
It's probably just two contacts, for $86 USD I would take a stab at the soldering.You cannot replace the battery yourself. It's soldered in.
Something to remember. The talk time per cycle is nearly twice that of regular cell phone batteries which means 1 cycle is twice the norm.
It's early so I won't be a smart a** about that comment...So you're buying into the FUD too? How about doing some research before flying off the handle.
Like I said try reading up before spreading more FUD.Sometimes it is not convenient to wait until it is almost dead then charge it. I wonder what 300-400 charges means. From dead to full? Or perhaps 300-400 chargings to full, even if starting at half power?
rough night last night?
From my the link I posted; "—and that's most likely full charges, not topping it off from 80% to 100% at night"
"most likely" means assumption...could be a safe assumption but an assumption none-the-less.
Anyways, regardless of how long the battery lasts, it is a pain in the butt that it cannot be changed easily. If your battery were to die which can happen, you are without a phone. As for renting a phone while yours is being serviced, that is another issue; Rogers will give me a phone for free while mine is in for repairs. I do not know if I see them giving free iPhones while on loan. The loaners you get now are beater phones...
