The $20 battery from ifixit comes with tools and instructions.
It's $199 for a non-warranty replacement iPhone, how could it cost more to replace a battery?
btw I've had my 3G since launch date, the battery is still going strong just like all my other phone's after a year and a bit.
LiIon batteries are all the same a few simple things make sure they last the most important is to make sure they get a good charge the first few times, most of the time charge them before they go completely flat and allow it to go completely flat once a month.
They also thrive on heavy use.

I bought an HTC touch pro2 when it came out a couple of months ago and for you any HTC windows based phone would not be a great idea if you just want something nice and simple to use.
The iphone is really easy to use and like someone already said using facebook youtube etc couldnt be easier. Once you get the hang of itunes for downloading apps for your iphone it does everything else for you.
Even texting is really easy when you get used to the touchscreen keyboard. My HTC had a full qwerty slide out keyboard which made texting sooo much easier but when I got my iphone it was even better you wont go back to a normal phone to text with again I bet
If I were you go to your local O2 shop or even better if your near Glasgow or like me even if your not go there anyway to the Apple store and have a play about and see some of the apps etc for yourself and play with the keyboard its even better in landscape for typing.
Take my word for it dont bother with the HTC the iphone touch screen is sooo much nicer to use.
Apple pls. release thin COMPACT iphones with 5 mega pixel camera, flash ,good stereo walkman and most especially "virtual keypads", Pocket Friendly....

kirsty from scotland, 15 Oct 2009thanks for your helphttp://iphone.macworld.com/200...cement_1.php
Actually it costs a lot more than 20$. 20$ is the DIY kit wich properly used involves soldering and voiding the warranty and you probably won't get a battery as good as the original.
If you're out of warranty servicing the iPhone is not cheap at all.

As for sallaries I wonder how s... moreNope, the iphone hater was the one who posted that it costs $250 to replace the iphone's battery. P%nm did clarify right after the hater's post that you can buy replacement batteries for the iphone for only $20. Didn't you see that? Or maybe you refuse to see that, lol.

The iphone would be a very good choice for you. It has the best social networking apps. You can easily upload photos you took in a breeze. You can even directly upload videos you took with your iphone directly to YouTube. Another good thing about the iphone is, with its design, you can buy all sorts of back covers that would suit your taste. But I do suggest you go to an Apple store first to try it out or, maybe you can ask a friend who already has the iphone and see if you can play around with it. Good luck :)
Anonymous, 15 Oct 2009htc hd2 definatly.. so much better and easier to usethanks for that..what makes it easier to use?

I have always used a nokia and my current phone is an n95..i have never used any of the features....i should say that the back has broken off of the phone as i drop it all the time....clumsey or wot.....so durable should be another requirement...thanks

I would understand if you yourself wants an iphone and couldn't get one because of the long lines. But you don't want the iphone. So why do you concern yourself to those people who fall in line to get the iphone? What if it was a nokia store or samsung store with people lining up to get the omnia or n900? Would that be ok for you then? But not ok for the iphone?

You haven't even touched the HTC and you're saying the iphone is more user friendly?

I haven't yet had the chance to fiddle around with the touch pro 2 yet, but it's definitely not as user friendly as iphone. I'd say that the main advantage (for me anyway) of the touch pro 2 would be its multitasking capabilities, and it probably is the more complete "mobile computer", whereas the iphone is a bit more basic but it performs its functions very well.
