Neuchâtel: Can I buy an iPhone repair kit locally? and/or a battery replacement kit?

I'm looking for an iPhone repair kit. At a minimum, I need to unscrew the two Penta screws on the bottom of my iPhone 4s. I'd prefer to buy locally rather than have it shipped from Amazon and have to go to FR or DE to pick it up. Does anyone know if these are available in Neuchâtel? (I'm assuming it's not possible to have it shipped to CH from Amazon or eBay, at least not economically). Also, I might be interested in a battery replacement kit if those are sold. If not in Neuchâtel, I would consider Bern.

I found an older post talking about GSMshop.ch but it appears the Neuchâtel location is closed.

Thanks.

There seems to be a GSM shop in Biel/Bienne which is closer to Neuchâtel than Bern.

There is a shop in rue due Seyon in Neuchâtel (next to the ethnic food shop) and another one near the Maladiere centre.
Both are nearer than either Bern or Biel.

For the benefit of anyone coming after me....the place on Rue de Seyon did not sell the repair kits (and someone very familiar with the local Mac community warned me against going there for service). I ended up going to Macianer in St. Blaise which had both repair and battery replacement kits and appeared to be a reliable and professional place.

I ordered a new battery for my iPhone 4s on-line from http://www.batteryupgrade.ch/ for CHF25.90.

They appears to be a Swiss outfit with a .ch domain and prices in CHF, but they are international and the battery was shipped from "Asia". Delivery was by post 10 days after ordering.

The battery came with tools but no instructions. However, there are some on YouTube. It is fiddly to replace and I needed a magnifying glass to see what I was doing. It took me 45 minutes to get the old out and the new one in.

It works. Any warranty is invalidated, but at 4 years old, there isn't one...
