A problem with my mobile phone

The problem is when I am using my phone for more than a few minutes it cuts off and I lose the line to the person that I am speaking to . And it is ok when I am using it for less than a few minutes . It is a Nokia phone and I have it for I guess 14 / 15 years which could be the problem as it is old


What is the problem ?

    Age probably, especially if it still has its original battery. Time for a new phone. :)

    If the whole phone goes off after a few minutes that's almost certainly battery.

    Argos have the Nokia 105 in various colours for £22.99

    Your only problem may be that the sim card that is in your existing phone may not be the correct size for any replacement phone you may obtain. 

    If this is the case then your mobile phone company should be able to provide you with a replacement that covers all sizes of sim card.

    Does that include the battery also ?
