    Well the title says it all. My 3G's battery is pretty horrible, and I was wondering what's the best site or store (preferred) to get a replacement battery (1600+ mAh would be nice) and the tools to do it (if I get the battery online).

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm looking at doing the same myself as my iPhone 3G battery is starting to die... I'd check on ebay fo standalone kits you can use yourself and search for 'iPhone battery replacement service' on Google. I remember seeing even batteries that were even higher capacity than the original.

    Apple has a battery replacement program. They will change your battery for $80. But if you still have warranty I think they will change it for free.

    The tools: $10
    The battery itself: $15
    Total: $25
    For $80, I can guarantee that nothing will happen to the phone, but I'd still take the risk.

    (I just guessed the prices, but doubt they're more expensive than that)
