Default How much does HTC charge to change the battery?

Hi,

Has HTC said anything about how much it costs for them to replace the m8's battery?
I have no intention of doing this myself, but I'd like to know that my phone can last longer that 2 years.
What about for the m7? I can't find anything about a battery replacement service online nor the cost.

If it's $99 I can accept it, but anything more would not make much financial sense.

Apple charges $79, for what it's worth.

You could use your phone to call HTC and ask.

I trust XDA and people who have gone through the actual process more than HTC (or any other reps) b/c they usually can't answer my question, no matter how simple.

Not to poke holes in your logic but this phone hasn't been out long enough for anyone to have gone through the process of paying to replace their battery...

My old HTC One S still holds a charge. It's an original launch day device from tmobile, with the original battery.
My dad was using it and would get almost a week on a battery.
He's using my m7 now.

So I wouldn't really worry about it that much.

+1 What he says

There are no listing at the moment as the product is so new. Plus the phone is sealed so the normal outlets other than HTC are unlikely to stock as it is classed as a service item - in other words, for the majority it would involve a return to store. (As you say - 'I have no intention of doing this myself',')

Remember if someone has had problems this early on with the battery, they would have gone for a replacement phone (I know I would have!)

- No doubt at some point somebody will release one. but for now, your best port of call is HTC direct

Like he said^^^^^^^^^^^^


I UPGRADED TO A 5GHZ CABLE HUB FOR THIS???


IF I DON'T HELP YOU, IT'S NOT BECAUSE I DON'T GIVE A TOSS. I JUST DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER.
