We've got an iPhone 3gs at work for development purposes, spends most of its life plugged into a Mac except for when we need to demo something to a customer. 

The battery life is getting pretty average, like only holding charge for about an hour, has anyone had an iPhone battery replaced?  If so, how much did it cost and is it the sort of thing the Apply man can do for you right there and then or will we need to be without our dev phone for a few days?

Cheers

Might be able to tell you in a day or so, someone in our office has just sent off their iPhone 3GS to be looked at, something to do with the battery. Soon as I see them Ill find out what the story is....

Ok, was $100 for a new battery supplied and installed on a iPhone 3GS - was at a place in the Albany Westfield mall outside JBHifi but I cant actually find their name on the Westfield site :-/
