Yeah ally79, it sounds like you really do need a new phone. Mine isn't quite that bad yet. It will hold the charge but I just don't want to be without the only phone I own LOL Of course, mine is only a little over a year old and yet I just really want to come into the modern era and get a smartphone. The one I have right now isn't easy to text with and it seems like everyone wants to text not call me anymore. I just say I can't text on my phone but that's getting old/irritating for me.
