Mijn probleem

My daughter has inherited my old 3GS. The good old piece already has a not bad time on the hump.

Of course the battery was quickly at the end - with the excessive usage (music, clips etc.). At the end, she could use it only with AC adapter.

So what to do?

I have already made good experiences in the past with the guides and the parts from iFixti.

As first try - I have replaced the fan from the MacBook Core Duo from my daughter. The success was great and the joy as well.

The second attempt was a little more difficult. The replacement of the inverter cabel by the Mac from my wife. Also the same model - MacBook Core Duo. She had problems with the backlight. The difficulty was to find out what does not work:

- the inverter?

- the inverter cabel?

- or the display data cable?

It was the inverter cabel. Identified after intensive researchs on different forums.

This repair was a lot more difficult, but also successful - thanks the step by step instructions by iFixit.

Mijn oplossing

Boosted by this accomplishments I felt the battery change as small challenge.

And in fact - the necessary material was from iFixit quickly and rapidly supplied. Within a few days it was in our mailbox.

And then the same game like the first times - step by step. But yeah do not use abbreviations! And the the success was certainly.

Mijn advies

Only the removal of the glued battery pack was unexpectedly difficult. So - be careful here.

Now has my doughter her iPhone back with a not bad battery performance. And she finds she has the best dad on the world.


So be brave, it's worth it.
