Okay my phone recently decided to croak, go figure right, not even time for an upgrade or whatever it is called. I went to the company and everything, they told me I could always buy a new battery. The phone, less than a year ago cost me about $75 and the battery in which I need for it to run will cost me $60-$65. So, do you know how much yours will be?

You must use your cell phone a lot more than I use mine. I've had mine (a bottom-of-the-line Nokia) for nearly two years, and the battery has not yet crapped out. So I don't have any idea how much a new battery will cost, but, frankly, I'm surprised to hear that they can be so expensive. I've been wondering if it's possible to periodically have your battery tested (just like you can do with your car battery) to gauge it's health. That way, you can replace it before the juice runs out. Othewise, in keeping with Murphy's law, your battery is liable to crap out at the worst possible time. If anybody knows whether it's possible to test a cell phone battery, let me know.

I don't know how much a new batter for my cellphone would cost, as I've never had to replace it. I've had the same cellphone since 2002, and I've never had to replace the batter in it. The chargers are still good too, and I'm happy with it. I hope I'll never have to find out what a replacement battery will cost.
