20 - 30 minutos
After a little over a year of faithful service, my iPhone 3GS started shutting down at random, when using any app besides making actual phone calls. Everyone knows Apple Care is of little help at the best of times, and when it comes to battery problems with their mobile devices, they are of no help at all. After some online searching, ifixit came up as a feasible alternative.
Like the online instruction video indicated, it took me about 20 minutes and my new iPhone battery from ifixit was installed. I held my breath and gave a slight nod to the Gods as I turned on the device, and presto! Good as new. For the cost of the battery, and the ease of the installation, I can't imagine ever calling Apple Care for any problem again, before checking for a solution on ifixit first.
As I said above, I can't imagine ever calling Apple Care for any problem again, before checking for a solution on ifixit first.
