The screwdriver didnt fit, the plastic lever did not work, using a rubber sucker on the screen works perfectly. So battery is fine, but kit is useless.
The kit looks just the job when I first opened the bag, no instructions included beware, okay where do I start, Stripping this phone down was extremely fiddley, the plastic removal tool was quite poor but i still managed, with a bit of luck, a little patience no a lot of patience, and a anti static band this can be done. I can't explain how to do this but just go to YouTube where you can get detailed advise, and do remove the camera if you don't you will never get the camera cable back on again this wasn't very clear on YouTube. Battery fitted for a week now and appears to be doing it's job.
Made the phone usable again, so was worth the struggle.
The pack came with a small Phillips screwdriver, small flat head, case opener and the battery itself. The screwdrivers are self-magnetised which is very useful, but the case opener is pretty poor quality - let's just say it's a "one use only" type device. The pack came with no instructions, but a very good video tutorial can be found on YouTube by "pdaparts".
The phone came apart easy enough, the snap connectors make that relatively easy. However, it is incredibly fiddly to get it back together. The camera connector is the most awkward, being tucked in a corner and upside-down. Connector 3 is the most fragile, so take extra care when reassembling - and be careful not flick off the black clip when handling the logic board when it's out of the case!
This is certainly not for the faint-hearted - and you definitely need a good "techie" head on to do this, it's not for the average punter to do, you'll just end up breaking your phone otherwise.
Great value replacement, super quick delivery, but Apple has made it nice and tricky to get it in there!
No, I really mean swimming. As in spending over an hour, most underwater with my son, swimming at depth.
Only in the showers later did I realise I'd left the phone in the left-pocket of my shorts.
Fortunately I knew enough not to try to turn it on. I put it in a container of dry rice for a few days, then let it cook for a fortnight in a sunny window.
Turning it on - the bootloader would start and then it would shutdown.
I went to Mobile Fun for a battery - and even with international shipping the price was fantastic. The item turned up with the right tools (a minature Phillips screwdriver and an anti-static plastic thingy) plus instructions. After half-an-hour of reasonably easy fiddling the battery was fixed and the phone returned to full service!
It's only needed one charge now in a fortnight - seems to be performing better than the original phone battery!
instructions are too small to make any sense but there are videos available on the web which you can find easily many thanks
