iPhone 3G battery replacement cost
Hey guys and gals, I just got a 3G from a friend of mine. He said that it is roughly 2.5 years old. Well today is my first full day of using it and the battery was almost dead by noon! I'm thinking it probably just needs to be replaced. Does anyone know round about how much an Apple store will charge for this? Thanks in advance!

Ok I called my local Apple store. They said they cannot quote me a price and that i have to come in and see the genius lab or bar and they would have to sell me another phone because they dont replace batteries. Does that sound normal? I can only imagine how much a new phone will cost. :-(

How much does it cost?
Service arranged through Apple costs $79. A $6.95 shipping fee will be added if you arrange service online or by calling Apple Technical Support. All fees are in U.S. dollars and are subject to local tax.

Or you can do it yourself and save some money.

I found the exact battery replacement for my iphone 3gs off of Ebay. Cost me $7.05 total. Got it, installed it on my own. Just be careful when taking the motherboard out and putting it back in.......because the camera connector is attached to the back of the mother board. When I put the motherboard back in, the camera connector kept coming loose. Be very careful about batteries. Dont try to buy a higher capacity battery just because they say it works for your phone. I bought a 1600a 1st instead of the 1200a that was in the phone. Phone stopped working.
