My battery would not keep a charge it would drain in about an hour a, i happened to be at a verizon store discussing why they charged me more money when i had done nothing different and the guy just wanted to talk about my phone and battery to put me in a new iPhone 5 because they are better than the 4s. he offered me a $250 bose docking station for my phone if i upgraded. so i turned to him and said clearly my phone is worth a lot if you are offering me $250 for it i can get a lot more if i wanted! he said not with a crappy battery that won't hold its charge you won't i am your only hope for any amount of money! I just laughed at him and said well its a good thing i ordered a new battery and it will be here in a couple days, at which point he tried to tell me i wouldn't be able to change it myself because the indicators inside the phone will void all warranties if opened and blah blah blah, I just looked at him and said "just because I am handicapped doesn't mean I am stupid!" He had nothing to say not even an apology for treating me like an idiot! So I asked him how they can justify slowing our phones down while we are trying to use our data and internet and apps, he said it is a precaution so we don't go over our allowed data, I then stated that controlling my internet or data is a bunch of bullshit and should never in a million years be allowed to happen and then asked why he was only concerned with my battery when i went in? He just said it was because my phone is over a year old, so i asked how they do it, he was confused, I asked again how do you do it, drain our batteries how do they use the network to slow our data and cause our batteries to work harder and cause them to go to $@$* so fast! he assured me there was no way they could slo our data and cause the batteries to go bad! I looked at him and said 2 minutes ago you just told me you slow my &&^&^$^ data and internet down so I don't go over my allowed 2 gb, but when i don't even use over 1 why in the &&^& is it being slowed down!? I walked out with a smile on my face and came home checked the mail and changed my battery!!!
