Failing battery in a Samsung SCH-u370?

Member

I bought this at  Costco last September, and have typically gotten most of a week's service out of the battery with light phone and zero text/web use.  Bluetooth has been turned off since I bought it.

Suddenly over the past week, battery life has dropped to about one day, even when I haven't used the phone.  Has anyone else seen this?  I suspect that a new battery is in order, but thought that I'd look for suggestions.

You can probably find a new OEM battery online for little money (Batteries4Less, cellularaccessories, other websites, shop around to find a good deal).  Batteries do wear out, but if it is less than a year, check your local Verizon corporate store.  Your original OEM battery should have a 1 year warranty so you may be able to get it replaced that way.

You can call Verizon as well and they should ship you one. if they hassle you, Costco should replace it. at least in my experience, if you bought it in store.
