I’ve had the phone for about three years now and it doesn’t have a scratch on it, but the battery is starting to drain faster and faster (I’m having to charge it twice daily, more when I use it a lot), in addition to the fact that once it hits about 30%, it will drop down to zero in a second and just die. This happens with and without Bluetooth devices connected. I’ve also noticed the phone getting hotter when I run Caustic (virtual synthesizer app) for a while. These are all relatively recent issues.
However, I’ve read that Motorola does not sell replacement parts for anything that’s not considered user-accessible. What is the most reliable way to have the battery replaced? I’m not willing to pretend that I just need a new phone altogether after the money I spent on this thing.
Do I just have to find some local phone repair service? Is there any particular 3rd party battery that is known to be the best one for this phone?
Any help is appreciated.
