What to do about my dying smartphone

I have six months left on my Verizon contract. My phone is dying and is not gonna last that long. I'm not eligible for an upgrade. I'm reluctant to enter another contract. Am I trapped?
I got my phone, the Motorola RAZR m for $99 + contact. Now it's 99¢ + contract or $350 w/out. I was considering the HTC One M8 but it's 650+ w/out contract, $199 w/ contract at Verizon and $99 w/ contract at ATT. I've had Metro PCS in the past which has horrible. Same w/ Sprint. I need a new phone and no matter what I've gotta pay out the rest of my Verizon contract. What should I do? Should just suck it up and enter a new contract. I'm not tied to the HTC but I am tied to having a smart photo. Secondary consideration: my other issue w/ my Verizon plan is that I have the smallest data plan of which I use only 1%, literally, but my data plan is $50/mo. Seems like I could do better.
