Has anyone found another source for extended batteries? Ive read the posts about not buying after market batteries because Samsung has done some software thing that wont allow you to use them without Rooting. None of the stores within 30 miles of me have extended batteries and I called VZW and they dont have and cant even tell me if they will ever be available again. Any ideas?
I bought two 3500 mAh batteries (with cover and wall charger) on E-Bay buy-it-now for $28 including postage and have had no trouble whatsoever. Changed my life. Since it's winter and I usually have a coat pocket or whatever to carry the phone, I have been using this battery exclusively. When it's warmer and I'm maybe wearing shorts or light clothes, I'll need to use the stock battery so I can use the holster. BTW, I got two stock batteries (Samsung brand) online for very little money--$10 or $15? The 3500's are OEM but I haven't had any of the issues described regarding rejection by the phone. I can provide more specific info on either of these purchases if anyone wants.
