Ohm my God: If you let anyone other than Apple replace your recent iPhone's battery, expect to be nagged by iOS

You were lucky.....

Not just new phones. I have (had) a second hand 4s. Last week Apple pushed out a "minor" update for a GPS issue - which has bricked my phone. Bit of research shows that I need the original factory fitted battery installed - bit of a problem as mine was replaced a couple of years ago. Even another Apple battery wouldn't get pass the error.

If I buy another 4s (since I have all the bits, a couple of paid apps, including a very nice case), I run the risk of another bricked phone. Shall I get a newer iPhone?

Screw that - I'm going to get a Android phone instead!!!
