I'm having phone issues again. I figured I needed to replace the battery in my cordless phone. I couldn't find a suitable battery-my phone is a Southwestern Bell I got it Texas over 10 years ago...maybe even longer ago than that. I wound up at radio shack and the guy found a battery that looked perfect. When I got home it fit in the phone so I let it charge-the little green light was on, so I figured problem solved. When I awoke the next day I picked up the phone-nothing. I put in a corded phone and still had issues. I looked in the computer adapter jack-sure enough corrosion. I've had that problem almost every year after hard rains. Luckily, the phone guy gave me an extra one-so I switched that out and it seems that the corded phone is fine. Unfortunately, still no luck with my cordless. I don't know what the problem is. The battery does fit-but it's not working. This afternoon I'm off to look for a new phone.
