Is there a less expensive phone around. Wife's phone lost battery, repair place said mother board problem, couldn't fix. She wants an easier phone with text email camera
What phone does wife have right now? Every time someone wants you to spend excess money on a new phone, they tell you that the motherboard is bad. Kindly endure that the phone is completely shut off then plug the phone into the wall and see if it will still work after a few minutes, so we can tell if it just needs a new battery.
Have you looked into Trakfone and other pay-as-yo-go providers? I'm using a Samsung A10 which cost under $200. Doesn't have all the fancy sensors, photos aren't quite as good as my deceased S7 ($300 refurb; real nice until I lost my temper one day) Don't have unlimited data, but I spend about $150 a year for service.
Yeah I would also recommend the A10e with Tracphone. They have a sale going on right now for $69 on their website. It's my workhorse in the woodshop and is very dependable
