Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The battery can probably be replaced quite easily. Cell phone batteries usually cost about $12 to $18 or so.

But that depends upon what make (e.g. LG or Motorola) and model # the flip phone is. So, tell me that - or the model # off the battery, which should be under a sliding hatch on the back of the flip phone, and have a label on it - and I will tell you specifically what battery can replace it and how much it would cost you.

-----------------------------

If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be good.

If you need more info, or have any comments, use Reply To Expert to respond.

Thanks.
