    The price for repair and for insurance has escalated over recent years on all the carriers. You could try a second party repair service like CPR®  Cell Phone Repair - All Cell Phones (I am in no way recommending them!) which could prove cheaper. There are a bunch of these services around, maybe someone else can provide recommendations? Even if you had insurance (I'm assuming you don't), the deductible is $100. If you own your phone for more than 5 months and only have the one repair incident, you still come out ahead. If this is strictly a charging issue, you could go with a work around and buy a cheap battery charger on ebay . Good luck!

    I'd put it towards a different phone at this point. I wouldn't part with +$100 to still end up with a Moment. Moment was good when there weren't better options, but that time is passed.

    Even though I like my Moment a lot I probably wouldn't put more than $50 or so toward repairing it if something went wrong. Putting that $130 toward the purchase of a newer/better phone would make more sense IMO.

    True, or you can buy a used Moment for around $130 - $150 or so on eBay / Craigslist.

    Don't do it, just get a new different phone. I just bought a brand new Samsung Moment from a forum so I wouldn't have to upgrade through Sprint.

    $130 i think is without insurance. i would just save that $130 towards a new phone. evo 4g was in stock online yesterday. lol after being out of stock months.

    also using a external battery and charger is gonna suck. every time u charge the battery u have to take it out and in. your battery cover will probably fall off from continuous use. i had this problem with my last phone.

    How you gonna root it if you can't flash it through the charging port? :)

    And btw I agree with saving the $130 for an upgrade. You can make it a month but you're really going to hate the moment by the time you can get rid of it.

    Spend that 130 towards canceling your Sprint account and get a phone from a different carrier?
