Recently I replaced the back plate on a iPhone 4 UMTS phone because it had a some nasty scratches over the lens cover near the camera. In this process of exchanging this part out – I noticed that this model of phone has a very easy to replace battery as well. This was not true of many of the other iPhone models. With the iPhone 4 simply remove 2 screws, then slide the case upwards, then pull off and that is about it. The only trouble is to locate the smallest star shaped screwdriver ever known to man.
Replacing Back Cover = Easy – remove two screws slide case, then replace with new case.
Replacing Battery = Easy – remove two screws slide case, pull out old battery, replace with new.
Good to see the best phone on the market making things a little easier to fix for the accidental drop.
Parts are easily found online, I used Directfix.com. Back Case – Plastic 29.99$ (makes better sense then glass if you think about it)
See below – with back plate off the battery is clearly visible and can be replaced easily.
