A friend mine has an 18 month old iPhone that has a battery that lasts between ten minutes and a few hours. He plugs it into the PC, it shows full charge, and a few hours later max it's flat. I figure the battery's due for replacement, but happy to hear other opinions.

Where in NZ can he get the battery replaced?

Order a battery off http://www.ifixit.com/iPhone-Parts and DIY is the easiest!

iPhone 3g or 3gs - the battery is different for each.

I have a supply of batteries for each if you want to do it yourself - which part of the country are you in?

That's about standard for most phones - especially now that you're charging them daily or more.
