    Starting 8/19, you can order a free extended battery for your Sprint Galaxy Nexus. Call telesales (*2 from your phone) and it will be free, or wait till they release the promo code and order it online.

    Just talked to a Sprint agent who said , "First, I'm not sure how you heard about it , but the battery promo is for new line activations" Same agent said all android phones are google branded so..take it all with the proverbial grain of salt.

    You have to go online to sprint.com. that's what I was told by sprint rep! It doesn't matter if your new or existing customer either. It specifically says that on the galaxy nexus app

    I tried to order the Bundle online with the Promo Code that was sent to me.
    I could not get it to work. It kept sending me to the "Buy a Phone" page and would not let me checkout.
    I then called Telesales. Explained the problem and just went ahead and ordered the Battery Bundle over the phone.
    Shipping is 2-5 days. I have already received the e-mail confirmation.

    Hope everyone else can get one. Good luck.

    So did they give it to you for free? I have the 3800 mAh battery and I can't even get a single day of use. Its really sad. My twin brother has the gsm galaxy nexus ( i got him to dump his iCrappy phone) and he gets a day out of the battery ugh anyways I would want a smaller battery like 2100 mAh. I figured I would be better off.

    I just got off the phone with Sprint, and they are sending me 2 extended batteries, for the cost of shipping and tax, which came to about $14 and change. I don't think this is available online yet. I actually had to call them to get this promotion. He asked me how many I wanted, and I said 2 would be nice, but I only have 1 phone. He told me that it's always nice to have a spare, so I'm getting 2.

    Had exactly the same experience. Called telesales and told them that I was trying to take advantage of the free promotion on the website, but that it was making me reenter my zip code from the shopping cart and then it would make me start all over. They forwarded me onto another sales department and they processed the order for me. Just had to pay the shipping/tax. Didn't ask about 2, they weren't overly friendly.

    I had the same experience as others could not get the promo code to work online. Called telesales and had no problem placing the order. Sprint did jack up the shipping charges. online shipping showed as 6.50 but ordering it by phone they said the shipping was 12.00.

    Still a good deal though a 49.00 battery package for 14.22

    I had the same experience with the online promo code. I called telesales and the lady told me that it was only for phones purchased after august third. I call back a second time and a different lady placed the order with no problem. My total came to 14 dollars and 56 cents with tax and shipping.

    Well this is weird


    I signed into my Sprint account online, first thing I noticed is this months bill due at the end of the month is less than it was. and it is less by the same amount of my purchase of the Extended battery bundle.

    Checking into it it appears they deducted the shipping and tax on the extended battery bundle from my bill.

    Anyone else see this on their bill?

    I am wondering if it is because I just purchased my GNex earlier this month.
