    Default Dying Nexus, replacement power button?

    So it seems after just over a year and a half my galaxy nexus is slowly dying. Just out of the blue about 3 weeks ago it started not wanting to charge when getting plugged in (seems to work ok right now), and now the power button doesn't really seem to work. It pretty much stopped working completely one day after a few days of just being finicky, but the next day it was back to normal and now (3-4 days later) it's not really working again.

    I'm looking for a replacement power button so I can try to fix it myself (since it's way out of warranty) but the only ones I'm seeing are for the GSM Galaxy Nexus. I've seen on Ebay for CDMA but it was $112, which is insane. Anyone know where I could get a cheap replacement? I really just want this phone to last until my contract ends in December (then I'm leaving Verizon and probably getting a T-mobile HTC One).

    Thanks for any help.

    The gsm power button should be the same part, no?

    Unfortunately not, but I think I did find what I needed right here: Samsung Galaxy Nexus SCH-I515 Power Button Flex

    Could have sworn that it was out of stock there last time I checked. Whatever, I'll order it from there and give it a shot.

    Unhappy Re: Dying Nexus, replacement power button?

    My power button just started going as well. I have Insurance/extended warranty on mine and I am wondering if it would be covered. Prob going to lock her back up and go stock and take her to the Verizon store tomorrow.
