Here's how you do it. Fold a $20 bill lengthwise EXACTLY into thirds with the left side folded on top and the right side folded on the bottom. Take the battery out and put the bill in with the excess sticking out of the bottom. Put the battery back in and wrap the excess around the bottom of the battery. The back of the Epic will fit back perfectly if you've been careful. Now you have an emergency $20!

Once those NFC chips come with every phone, you'll automatically have all your money inside without even having to open the battery door.

I fail to see the utility in this. Surely it is just simpler to just keep spare cash in your wallet. Or maybe, just spend wisely & not run out of available cash. If you're mugged, you're just giving them a $20 bonus on top of the wallet and phone they've just taken from you.

Wouldn't the paper insulate the battery and add to the possibility of the phone overheating?

ah yes, the old money trick! I been doing that since the old PalmOS days - just remember not to tell your friends, cause they will always want to borrow your phone. Also how much do your trust the Sprint tech? :D:D:D

I use a small double face scotch tape just to hold in place because placement is sometimes critical to not create a weird bulge in the wrong place when you put the cover on - it also helps when you pull the battery cover off in a windy area.

The trick is to crease the folds with your finger nail for a real tight crease in the fold - the less you have to fold it, obviously the thinner it is. I also think it is better not to put more than a $50 dollar bill in there because more place will take that, unless you are in Vegas. :D

You mean you never left your wallet in the car while you were shopping or worst yet left your money/wallet at home by mistake?

But you probably have your phone with you - thats why I do it - and no I have never had any heat problems with the spare cash in my phone. :)

I'm much more likely to forget my phone than my wallet! Of course knowing a hundred bucks was in my phone might change that....
