Hi There,

Thanks for reaching out to us with this concern. My name is Augie and I'm here to help.

Based on that model number (A1387 / EMC 2430 ), you actually own an iPhone 4s, not an iPhone 4. With that in mind, the batteries for the 4s and for the 4 are different, and they’re not cross-compatible.

With this in mind, we’ll be more than happy to set you up for a return and refund , and help you in ordering the correct battery. To do so, please send us an email with your order number to, and link this conversation.

Thanks again, and looking forward to helping you get this resolved soon.
