My crap phone is a Motorola t731 that no longer holds a charge very well and has to have the charger plugged in just so to charge. My current service is with US Cellular which will not be available for my son in Charlotte, NC for local service. I live in the area of Roanoke VA, but will probably move to NC or SC within the next couple of years..

Verizon seems to be a service option, but until my contract expires in July.

Should I just but a new battery to make do until then or buy a replacement phone?

Where can I find them?
