I have had my Virgin Mobile Pre paid phone for a couple of years now. It is a good phone and I like it alot. I have had no real problems with the customer service department. The thing that really angers me is that my battery is running dead and I checked the price of a bew one and it is more than what I can get a brand new phone for. I just think that is really stupid. They should make there batteries less expensive. Has any else had this same kind of problem. What did you do about it.

Yes, it has happen to me, but I already know of other companies where the battery is 40 bucks, making twice as expensive as virgin mobile. I will advice to buy a new phone, there are newer models and well recycle the old one.

Ya even I had a similar kind of issue. My cell phone battery started behaving wierdly. And when I checkeed for the price of the battery it was more costly than the phone itself. But as I knew that my phone wont last much longer I went for another option. I bought a second hand battery. You can search that through friends or from internet. You can get good batteries at reasonable prices. May be this info can help you.

I've had that problem with a Kyocera before. I just said the heck with it and bought another phone. It's just the way they make electronic things these days. Ever notice that some printer cartridges cost more than a brand new printer for your computer? It is rather dumb though and I do wish they'd stop doing such things :(

no i have not had a similar problem but i have a idea for you. look on ebay you might be able to get a battery from there. Also when you get a new one tonight charge it all the time charge it when its on the last bar of battry power this makes the battery last longer. Iv done this with a phone iv had for the lst 4 years and its fine and iv told my friends and there amazed at how long there batteries last now.
