    So yesterday my Nokia started acting weird. It started turning on and off by itself and then at about 63%, it just completely turned off. I couldn't restart it. I went home and connected my phone to my charger. It vibrated and I saw the Nokia sign. The battery symbol showed up and it was showing that my battery is completely dead, but it's charging. I left it like that the whole night. This morning it was still showing the low battery symbol. I tried to turn it on, but the power button wouldn't respond. I looked at all forums. My volume buttons are broken, so I couldn't use the volume down/power button method. I tried using multiple different chargers and the same thing happened. What do I do? Why isn't my phone turning on? Do I get a new battery? I've had this phone for about almost two years. Maybe I should just get a new phone.

    It's probably time for a new phone.
    I don't know your location.
    If your in the US there are lots of options.

    The off and on problem might be solved by the battery shim trick (placing a small piece of folded paper under the battery)
    I'd also try carefully cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser.

    Good luck there.
