Stick your phone in the water and see if that helps. Real deep water.

Is there something I can do to keep this from happening?
What did you fine to be the problem and is it fixable?

My non smart cell in the last week needs recharging tw[I]ce a day..

I don't want to update to a smart phone really.

Mikeyy, since this phone is just a little over a year old and is filled with contacts, I don't want to replace it yet and lose everything. I'd get a new battery before doing that.
they should be able to transfer your data all straight to your new phone

I don't know what to tell you about your non-smart phone. A smart phone is a computer, and just like with a PC, I've learned that turning it off and back on can fix some problems.

I've found that when my phone starts draining quickly, I'll do one of a couple things, which seems to fix it temporarily. I either switch into Airplane mode for a few minutes, the switch it out. That seems to stop whatever was downloading at that time, turn off the wifi setting (it spends a lot of energy hunting for wifi's, and I don't really need wifi in this area, or at night I will shut it all the way down/off and put it on the charger for overnight.

I've had this phone over 5 years, haven't replaced the battery, and it'll hold a charge all day. Course, I don't do much internet with it, just phone, text and the occasional picture.
