Customer Question
I have an I-Phone...

I have an I-Phone 5. I need a new battery. I understand I would be able to purchase a battery for $29.00 vs $79.00. Where would I go to purchase this battery replacement.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your iPhone?

IOS11.2.1

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your iPhone? What have you tried so far?

For the past year or more. The battery will not last a day in my pocket. Otherwise, it needs to be recharged on my truck

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No. Just what location I would be able to obtain a replacement battery?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
