It depends on what model you're using. If you have a 2G/3G/3Gs, then the process is relatively simple. It takes a small Philips screwdriver, a suction cup, and a little patience.

I made a tutorial about replacing the battery in an iPhone 3G/3Gs. You can find it on my friend's site at http://www.my friend's site.com/watch?v=gEmCPPE1-tE

If you take it to an Apple store, they'll either tell you that you need to send it in at a cost of $79+s/h OR (and in my experience, much more likely) they'll tell you that the logic board is dead and that you need to upgrade to the iPhone 4. (That's what happened to me.)

Luckily, it's an easy fix if you're even remotely comfortable using a screwdriver. You can buy the battery on eBay for ~$5+s/h and the whole process take less than an hour.

MAKE SURE to watch the video BEFORE you buy the battery because there is such a thing as buying the wrong battery. (Depending on what model of iPhone you're using.)

Good luck.

You can't unless you dismantled it using powerful tools but you would most likely destroy the iphone in the process of trying to extract the battery.

It might even cost more money to remove and/or replace the battery than it would to buy a new iphone.
