    > it'd be good if I could find a decent battery for it

    It's not up to me to sell it, but I've still got a battery in my old T28. The phone's been sitting on my shelves for a year now, hasn't been touched (mainly because I don't want the date and time to be reset like it is if I remove the sim card from my current phone - I'm quite lazy), but you never know, it might still work!

    Just don't get your hopes up. At all.

    Depends which phones you're talking about... Maybe the cheaper $100-$200 phones. Anything more than that and I'd have to say no. That's too much money for me to spend on something disposable. If things go as they should, my new phone should last at least as long as the last one... and considering I have a 3 year warranty on this one, maybe it'll last longer

    There are several recurrent themes here:

    New phones are not as robust as older models.

    Battery longevity (not charge) is too short

    Premature failures are more common than expected

    Excessive mobile phone use causes dropsy

    Cheers

    I think the length of time the battery on my Nokia 3530 lasts quite long. I usually leave it on all the time, and it will last about a week before it reminds me that it's running low, and needs to be charged.
