You cannot remove an iPhone battery. Some newer Samsungs have batteries soldered in.

I have a Samsung Gusto II flip phone which is 3G CDMA, It's my understanding that CDMA will end (at least with Verizon) at the end of 2020. My plan is $100 per year with more minutes than I use.

I don't know what I will do when CDMA ends but I hope some of the MVNOs such as Straight Talk and Tracfone will come up with a plan for the flip phone crowd. But the flip phones will have to be 4G LTE.

Is that a Verizon deal? I would love to get a $100 a year plan. I have a ﹰMotorola ﹰRazr V3M on Verizon, still working . I know we are good to the end of 2020.

No it was Puppy Wireless using Verizon towers. The plan originally was $80 but went up on me. I think the plan is for 6,666 minutes per year (if using voice only) but no new activations due to CDMA phaseout.
