Phone is splitting open
I did not notice a problem at first, as my phone is always in a case, but I took the phone to my local Genius Bar for help diagnosing poor battery life, and we discovered the battery was starting to swell. They were offering to replace the entire phone for $100.
The tools necessary to replace the battery will take around a month to arrive. Do you guys think I have that long, or is the battery likely to expand enough to split my phone completely open and/or cause severe damage to my screen?
