    My Priv is almost 4 years old and the battery is no longer good I think... it keeps shutting off even if item at 20% or so... so I am thinking about replacing the battery. Is it worth it at this point? Is it recommended? Costly? Any thoughts / previous experiences?

    Yes it's worth it because replacement batteries can be had for less than $20 on eBay, and this phone happens to be super easy to do a battery swap on

    Did you get it done? Did it fix the issue if spontaneous reboots?

    Yes I did it myself several times, it takes less than 10 minutes easily.

    I never had the spontaneous reboots so I'm not sure about that.

    I never tried that... I don't have the tools to do it. I might just take it to a repair shop.

    Some replacement batteries on eBay come with the tools

    Original BlackBerry batteries are getting really hard to find so just go for any replacement one that's under $20.

    Some on eBay even have good reviews I think
