    My battery needed to be replaced. APN: 616-0435

    I purchased 3 batteries of that same model number and none worked.
    2 wouldn't charge and one randomly rebooted iPhone.

    I finally purchased another with a lower model number like 616-0432 and it now charges but won't allow me to update my firmware. Keep getting error 29 and my research blames it on a mismatching battery part number.

    What do I do? Any suggestions?

    The best suggestion is to search for "iPhone 3gs battery" on ebay. You'll find lots of results ranging from 5 to 15 dollars (Shipping included)

    For the most part, the batteries will be just as good as the original. Just remember to train the battery properly for best results!

    That's the thing... I did search my battery off eBay. All 3 that I purchased of the same APN as the original battery failed. Is it possible I just received 3 bad batteries? (2 different sellers mind you)
