Have moved to France and my English I Phone died. Lots of people have my number along with all my music etc etc. We guessed maybe the battery had gone as it is not a new phone so ordered new one with all necessary bits.
The repair went very well although it was my husband that repaired it not me! Despite the video being of a woman showing how easy it all was, it did take a lot longer than described but worked.
Not really as you had added in the bit about if your phone is from UK you will have such and such, which was true. Tricky getting battery out but hair-dryer worked and then connecting first bit back, but after that all fine.
