    I made an appointment at the bar. My battery has gone to shits. 17 cycles and its at 83% and doesn't even last that long any more. I remember i was able to fly from memphis to vegas and watch a 2 hr movie. From Memphis to Los Angeles it died with an hour.

    I hope i get a new battery, i fly back in a few days :noes:

    oh and i has apple care too

    only 17 cycles? give it a couple of full charges / discharges and it will probably be fine :dunno:

    I know that's what they usually do, but he said they replaced the battery.

    That'd be a bit weird. They just swap out iPods for a refurb and those have easy to unplug batteries. The iPhone requires soldering of the battery. I would really doubt they'd mess around with that in the store. They swap them for refurbs for lesser issues.
