Why did my cell phone battery start dying after a few hours?

I've had my cell - a Razr using Verizon - for about one year exactly and its battery has always lasted at least two days on a full charge. I don't talk on it that much and get excellent reception. Yesterday, it told me the battery was dead after about six hours. I charged it all the way, and it did the same thing today. I haven't had any longer-than-usual conversations or any issues with service, which seemed to be the biggest causes of battery drain according to my internet research. Is my phone broken? I've been told to just buy a new battery, but I have a hard time believing the battery is dead already as there was no decline - it just gave me 48 hours for 13 or so months and then randomly went to 6. Help!
