    Default iPhone Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Program
    (searched but could not find an answer)

    I've had my 2G for about 1.75 years now and the battery is draining ridiculously fast, even in Airplane mode. I know the cost (The program costs $79, plus $6.95 shipping. The program cost is $85.95 per unit.)

    Just wondering if anyone has done this with their jailbroken 2G iPhones.

    Is Apple able to replace the battery at a B&M?
    Anyone with a jailbroken 2G iPhone replace their battery yet?
    Did you restore before having it replaced?

    I dont think they do it in-store.

    I would restore since Apple declared jailbreaking "illegal" lol.

    If your not experienced with that type of stuff, I wouldnt recommend trying it yourself....it requires soldering and cross the wires on that beast = BOOM.

    I read on Apple's site that it takes a total of 3 days. You think its worth paying for a new battery or sell and buy a new one?

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    Muh, there are cheaper places to get the battery replaced that are reputable. Here's one for example:
