@un4gvn1 I went looking for a new battery for my flip phone (still charges, but doesn’t last very long) and the people at both Radio Shack and Interstate Battery told me it’d be cheaper to get a new phone.
So, I’m just living with the reduced battery life (still plenty long enough for me, as long as I don’t get a flurry of texts) until it dies completely.
@DennisG2014 I eventually got my uncle a free smart phone. He doesn’t use any of the smart features, but he needs to text me, and he’s always had one of those phones with a keyboard, which I can’t get anymore.
Tear it apart and repair or replace battery and/or charging port.(I’ve done it so many times I swear I could disassemble and reassemble an LG G4 blindfolded…but why would I…unless that became some sort of Olympic event or perhaps I could do it at a carnival side show…hmmmm)
As long as it doesn’t appear to be due to external damage, take it to Verizon and tell them to fix it since it’s still under warranty. Done it before, got a new phone since they’d rather do a quick swap and sell it as a refurb.
@lseeber IT may be worth buying a new charging cable (Amazon Basics tend to be good and cheap) if you don’t have one to try. I’ve had three lightning cables wig out (one apple in 18 months, one no-name lasted a week, and one Amazon but 2+ years old) but the same phone is working great. They all would charge for a minute or two after wiggling or re-seating.
@duodec oh I always have at least three or four chargers and try them before I do anything. I don’t just automatically take it and buy a new one. But I do have a brand new phone it’s only about 2 months old so I have no problems right now anyway.
