Battery for LG800G Tracfone

I bought my LG800G tracfone for the Q, have had it about 3 months now and my battery is not holding a charge. Went to Wal mart but they don't sell them. Has anyone had to purchase a battery? Does staples sell them.

Was on the tracfone site and I noticed that the exact same phone with triple minutes for life, is $49.99 a lot less that what I paid. So a little irritated knowing that.

But I am in need of a battery, and not sure where to purchase it.

Thanks ahead.

I bought mine from HSN and mine doesn't either and a friend bought his from the Q and his isn't holding a charge either.....I really think LG has a serious problem.

I believe there is a warranty involved and I'm going to check to see if mine can be returned and replaced. Not sure what we're going to do with his yet.

I actually would return it......I'm happy (not really happy) you're having a problem and posted it because I thought it was my imagination......

Radio Shack sells them.

Call Tracfone.

I got a Tracfone from HSN earlier this year and the battery always went dead and I hardly use this phone. I called Tracfone and they sent a new battery which didn't help and then they just sent me a new phone this week. I'm not sure just yet but it looks like the battery is running down just as quickly. At any rate this was all at no cost to me.

ETA: Its the LG 800.

Well Tracfone is sending me yet another LG phone since the one they sent was no better than the one I had. I asked if there was another brand I could get but there was nothing comparable which would work in my area.

The customer service has been very good, however, I sure spent far too much time on the phone with them. It takes them forever, it seems, to navigate through their system.

I don't have faith the phone on it's way will work any better!!

Guess 3rd time is the charm! Finally got a phone which is working properly!!!

Just wanted to provide an updated so if anyone is having trouble and it's past the time to do a return, contact Tracfone and be persistent.

Do you think this battery problem is only with the LG800?

I don't think my lg800 had a battery problem. There's either defective phones out there or perhaps something software related. The first 2 lg's I had also wouldn't connect to the intenet and the 3rd phone does so.
