Warranty ruiningly hard, to do yourself...

Actually, the process isn't that hard, just it'll void your warranty. The iPhone 4 & 4S are held together by two pentagon headed screws at the bottom of the phone, unscrew these (you'll need a special screwdriver), and the phone SHOULD come apart relatively easily. After that it should be easy to see where the battery is and how to fit a new one (eBay could hook you up with a new battery), then reverse the process to put your baby back together again.

Note, I hold NO responsibility, whatsoever for the outcome or results, if you so choose to follow my advice. This advice comes with no warranty, expressed or implied. This is simply advice on how the procedure COULD be performed, if someone were so inclined, I don't condone breaching the terms of Apple Inc's warranty or EULA by performing said procedure yourself.

All legal responsibility lies explicitly, with you.

(I get paid to write that crap at work :p).

what he means to say is. the above is worthless legal mumbo jumbo and if you follow his advice he is complicit in helping you to breach the terms of your contract with apple meaning he is still liable for any issues which may befall you.

I explicitly CONDEMN, following the above given advice. I was simply stating how it COULD be done IF, you, in the impersonal sense, were so inclined.

Apple Inc's UK warranty and End User Licence Agreement, which state no repairs by unqualified personnel, takes precedent over all advice given, suggested or in any way implied by me.

I would like to bring iFixit to your attention, they specialise in teardowns and repair "guides". They hold no legal responsibility, despite offering far more in detail advice than I did. The law applies to every adult, to the same extent, without fail.
