The surgery was a success, but there was permanent brain damage
5 - 30 minuten
My iPhone 4 decided to take a dip in the toilet...clean water of course, but still a problem. I dried it out using all the latest ideas and it looked as though I could save it, but when I tried to reset it using iTunes, I received a bad battery error message. I ordered a battery replacement kit, and it arrived several days earlier than the estimated date. I was really excited, but when I opened the box, it was a battery for an iPhone 4s. On the next business day, I called customer service and they were awesome! They were very apologetic and sent out the correct part and sent it overnight. I was thoroughly impressed with the awesome customer service.
After receiving the correct battery, I replaced it in less than five minutes. It was fast and easy especially with the step by step directions on the iFixit site. I was able to reset and restore my phone, but that's not the end of the story. The battery wouldn't charge. I decided to take it to the Cell Phone Repair shop for a free diagnosis and they indicated that it was not the battery or the charge/dock connector. They said it was the logic board and couldn't be repaired, thus the title of the review
The only advice I can offer is that you shouldn't be afraid to try to save some money and fix your stuff yourself. In my case it couldn't e repaired, but I will say that I am far more confident about possible future repairs. I will use iFixit again.
