    Welcome to Android Central! I'm not clear on the sequence of events. So is it shutting off when the original battery is in, or when your mother's battery is in? If it works fine with your mother's battery, but shuts off with your original battery, then the latter is likely failing, and you need a new battery.

    Oh, so you're saying your battery works fine in your mother's phone. What about her battery in yours?

    Sounds like it may be a shorted power switch. That's not an expensive repair. (Not $2, but not very expensive either. Take it in and ask for a "guesstimate". The switch is really cheap [a few bucks] so the question is how much they're going to charge you for a little labor.)
