    Default iPhone battery will die after 300 full charges

    I remember reading from somewhere that the iPhone battery will die after 300 full charges ... At that point, you will have to send your iPhone back to the store for battery replacement. I wonder if they would still do it for the unlocked iPhones or let us do it ourselves?

    please use search or google. Li-ion batteries will degrade to 80% with about 300 charges. all this info is availible on the apple site, your phone will not cease to work.

    a charge cycle is defined as using the entire battery, thus if you drain til 40% then charge and drain to 60% you have then done one complete cycle (40% + 60% = 100%)

    Is it gonna make it better if your phone is constantly docked while you are home and when youre sleeping or the more is docked, the shorter the battery life span is?

    Thanks.

    Its 300 full charge cycles, so if you are only topping off the last 10% you still have 90% of that charge cycle left. Logic therefore dictates that the more you keep it docked the longer the battery will last, but that's really true for any electronic device. Makes sense if you think about it.

    so basically when you're not using it... keep it on the charger?

    i really woudlnt worry about it. if you think about it the phone doesnt use that much power on standby and say you use 40% of the charge a day 300 charges would take you 2 years and like a month. and at that point 80% of the battery would STILL be useable.
    after 300 charges you are only loosing 20% of the capacity and in 2 years im sure were all going to be buying iphone gen 2 even gen 3.

    If the so called most Revolutionary phone would have done like any other mobile phone in the world an accept you could switch batteries...
    But hey!!Apple wouldn't get that money or the users may consider buying a new iphone instead of sending it to apple considering the cost..

    With the proper tools the battery is not that hard to replace.

    My iPhone was originally hardware unlocked, so I know by experience that it's not that hard to open one. Besides, in the next 6 months, more OEM batteries options will show up. I've seen at least 2 sources for it.

    The rest of mobile phones or Smartphones in the world don't require any tools.
    Just my fingers.
    And I can replace the battery on a dairy basis (that means I can travel with 2 batteries in case i go to.... the dessert or the jungle for instance).
    I have replaced batteires on Ipod... but that is not the question.
