My San Diego was new in October 2012 and has been completely trouble free but the battery is now showing signs of weakness. A lot depends on how its used of course and for the first 6 or 7 months I always turned the phone off in the evening, which meant the battery would last for a month before needing a charge. I then changed my usage habits and began to leave the phone permanently switched on, even when charging. The phone was used very lightly and every power draining app was switched off, so it needed a charge about every 2 weeks. Then about 2 months ago I noticed I need to charge more often, about once a week and the use of WiFi, Bluetooth, mp3 or video etc will drain the battery far quicker than 6 months ago. In spite of no prospect of a safe Jelly Bean update I would like to keep this phone as it is stable, fast and smooth. I have searched but no one seems to have discussed or even considered DIY surgery to replace the battery with a new one. Does anyone know if this has been covered or if this would even be possible.
