Apple was replacing batteries for these phones for $29 installed, like a year or so ago, they extended it to all iPhones at the time. The program lasted about 9 months I think. Anyway long since past their program deadline.  We had 2 phones that we got batteries for under that program.

Right before I got the I-11, I had a I-5 and had the battery replaced , it was $69 plus tax installed at a local phone repair company , I just seen some I-8 batteries for $20.99 on e-bay  with free shipping , they come as a kit and your get 5 tools with the battery to help change it , you know they come from U'Wang ,chi-Na

I've never had to replace the battery in mine .... but have always heard it's best to drain a brand new battery dead, just once, and never let it go dead again... so must i be doing something right , because  this old dinosaur of a phone (5) is still working :-) what did shade always say about all this new mess coming out ? disposable .... no doubt he nailed that one.

i could have had bestbuy replace the battery, they was selling them for like 20 something bucks, but none was in stock until aug 8th ?..lol. or i could have bought a kit like you said, but once you break the water sealant under the glass ?, you have no way of making it water resistance anymore !..lol.
