Greetings and good afternoon, all.
So my wife picks up a pair of TBolts at launch back in March of 2011 I believe. She had an issue with hers, and gets a replacement. Mine has continue to run more or less fine, and here I am, nearly 28 months later with a battery that can barely make it through 8 hours without getting a charge:
Of course, we picked these phones up at the tail end of Verizon's unlimited plan, so any upgrade at this point will probably bump us over to a 2GB/month plan. My wife is salivating at getting a Samsung Galaxy S4, and I'm leaning towards possibly getting a Windows phone. Or, we could pick up any number of replacement batteries on Amazon or anywhere else, but I don't really think that the aging cell is the chief problem. My leading suspicion is that it has much to do with the "Awake" time, even though I make few calls, receive fewer, and text when needed. I have no doubts that this has been asked by some other user already, so if somebody could kindly redirect me to a thread or solution for this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you kindly, in advance.
