Phone was operating normal with about 25% charge remaining when it just went dead. Plugged into wall charger and it stated charging was active and then later that charging was complete. When unplugged from wall the phone will not turn on at all. Swapped batteries with my wife's phone and my phone works and her's did not. Therefore is seems like my phone's battery failed. Is there anything I can do besides buy a new battery?

If the phone charges the battery as it is displayed on the screen when a charger is plugged in but does not power on, the power button/switch is faulty. Have it checked and replaced by a qualified technician. If the phone doesn't charge the battery, the battery is probably drained or dead. To verify, grab a voltmeter and check the battery voltage. Set the selector knob to 10V DC. Voltage reading of less than 3 volts indicates the battery is drained or dead. Use a known good battery. If the battery is good but the phone still does not turn on, it is dead and have it checked by a qualified technician.
Remove the battery and clean the contact points. Also plug in the charger and try to switch your phone on. Also notice if the normal charging logo/picture is appearing or not. If the phone does not come ON while plugged in with the charger, then its a problem of the phone. However after cleaning the battery, put it back and try to switch ON without/with the charger and let us know the results............sodeep
my phone stopped charger and i went to settings and usb connection and go to music sync and then i put it on the charger and played with it for a lil while then it started charging and every since that i never went dead!!
Normally a drained battery would take about 30-40 minutes to charge, however if the battery charges in about 2-3 minutes or even faster (as in your case) the fault lies in the battery. If your phone isn't water dropped and is within the warranty period you will get a new battery. I would suggest u change the battery and check (maybe with another battery of a similar make) and then see the results before u could buy one.
