Hi @scott76, how long have you had the phone for? Batteries do have a finite lifetime of about 2-3 years or 300-500 charge cycles. So, if you've surpassed that lifetime - it's possible that you need a replacement battery.

Did anything in particular happen to damage the phone in anyway? Was it dropped? or perhaps exposed to moisture?

Was this answer helpful?

Ive had it for about a year or two, so it might need a new battery. And no, i have never dropped it before. Thank you!

How do you change that battery? Is there a guide for doing it? Where can I buy the correct battery? What tools do I need?

@scott76 did you get a chance to try a new battery?
