That's the best one I've heard in a long time, Mad! Must tell my friend who just got a phone and is equally as clueless as you say you are!

Purposely clueless, Draclvr, because I choose not to have my life patterned by endless texts or calls I don't want or need.
That's why my mobile will remain basic yes

And she intends to remain equally as purposely clueless! She's not interested in texts or spammy calls. She wants it for emergencies if she is down feeding at her barn. She lives alone and cares for about 75 rescued animals by herself at nearly 70 years old.

When I first had a smart phone, the scanning/rolling aspect drove me nuts to the point I switched to a flip phone. Made finding a phone number easier, but had little room and not easily adaptable to downloading or playing games. When the battery died, couldn't find a replacement. Got another similar model whose battery died within 6 months and learned no replacement for that one either. Got fed up and went back to smart phone but chose to get one with a small monthly payment plan. I don't use half the icons on it cause I don't understand them, just complicates things for me. I'm sure I don't use my phone for half the things that could be done but I'm okay with that. Long as I can call, text, games and a few photos, I'm happy.

The next time you have trouble getting a battery for your phone, check Amazon, that is what I did because I swear not to God but to somebody that these Phone Companies purposely change the Models slightly and tell you they No longer have batteries for it, ALL this to get you to Upgrade your phone where the $$$$ making scheme is. I would not be surprised that when you try and get a battery for your Smart Phone... Whoops, they no longer have it, Not to worry Sir or Mam, you can do an upgrade.... Arrgh!....

Oh, it's worse than that, Starcom. Most of the new high end phones are sealed and you CAN'T put in a new battery if needed!

Are you kidding me Draclvr, I would definitely Stay Away from those types of phones unless they could Guaranty at Least 5 years minimum battery life.
Wow, thanks for the info Draclvr.

Starcom, that's good to know. Though at the time, I hardly ever purchased anything from Amazon, figured it was faster to go to the store. That all changed with covid. Haven't in much of any store since then.

Actually, i have a very high end Iphone and they will switch out the battery if needed. Samsung (Android) does the same. Fortunately, the batteries last for years and it is rarely needed.

Key word is "they!" To get to my Samsung battery, I have to melt the adhesive along the edges, unplug the fingerprint scanner and remove 6 or 7 screws inside to get to the battery! I don't have a service through Verizon or ATT or T-Mobile. Someone who used to work at an ATT store told me they have to do the same things and hardly anyone will do it. He said iPhones are even worse. But like you say, the batteries last for years and they rarely need to be changed, unlike the old ones.

thanks for the info BrownEyedTiger, the next time I have to get a new phone, err I mean an Upgrade I will look into the Battery life of a phone.

Draclvr: You sure have a Lot of Patience and Skills to be able to Dig out the Old battery the way you describe it, I admire rahyou.
