The battery connector on my iPhone has come loose. It's the part that connects the battery cable to the logic board. I know that when I hold the pins together the phone will boot.http://www.thegerar.com/images/0919product/s-ip4g-2725.jpg The photo shows the part that's loose. I'm not great with a soldering iron and don't want to ruin my phone so I was wondering if anyone knew a repairing company that would repair this? I've emailed iDoctor NZ and iPhoneCentre to see if I can get a quote. I'm in Hamilton btw. If anyone knows of somewhere that'd be great.

Been there done that, stuffed my phone.
Try Partsurf in Christchurch http://www.partsurf.co.nz/ They had a go after I attempted a repair but were unsuccessful. My advice, don't attempt to repair it yourself, send it to a professional.

What about trying an out of warranty replacement from Apple?

http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=New_Zealand&product=iphone

$244 - for the iPhone 4 - while it excludes unauthorised repair it might still be worth a shot - the worst they can say is no.

I would imagine when you talk to apple you would say it won't work on battery, I wouldn't be mentioning that you've opened it up!
