    There is a spot for you to sign the note. Its in the middle. So if your not home tomorrow they will just leave it and take the sticky part off with your signature on it

    I also jumped on this but despite all the tricks still paid $29 for the battery. I wasn't too frustrated as I was going to buy an extra battery (non-extended) anyway. I put it in at 42% and drained it yesterday. Charged last night. More to come on performance.

    the accuracy of the battery won't be the same as stock. For example, on my extended battery, i've seen it go from 40% to 0 in less than 10 minutes. This is in a strenuous situation, so not normal in the least, and the 1620 is much closer to the 1450 stock, but just something to keep in mind. Also, if you had your phone for a while, then the original battery's capacity would slowly reduce after some time.
    Precisely why I did a full charge and wiped battery stats, then allowed the phone to drain all the way down.

    I still had that problem even after doing that.

    Sent my girl to the VZW store to buy 2 of these for our Tbolts. The moron at the store told her the battery was too small and wouldn't fit. He talked her into getting the extended battery instead. Needless to say we will be going back to VZW today LOL

    Haven't had any accuracy issues with either of the two 1620mAh batteries (received them last week), nor ever had issues either with the two 1400mAh and one extended batteries. I always charge them via a Seidio Multi-function battery charger (rarely with the phone itself) and then run them down to approx. 20 percent before swapping out for a fresh battery. So far, I’m consistently getting about 6-8 hours more battery life (approx. 35+ hours total uptime) with these 1620mAh batteries than the 1400mAh ones.

    I just ordered 2 individually. I can confirm that in order to get them for $19.99 you cannot be signed in, and you have to purchase one at a time.

    It does take a few cycles for it to be really accurate, allowing the battery stats to reflect real-time usage...but now that I've been running this battery for a few days I can definitely say that I get noticeable bump in battery life, judging strictly from time off the charger until drained.

    Ohhhhhh ya. It's red. That means its better, and batt HTC logo is now upside down, which is what makes it last so much longer.

    When I originally got my Thunderbolt, I ordered an extra (standard) battery, which was from HTC as well. What was funny is that on the one that came with the my phone, the side with the HTC logo faced out when placed in the phone, and on the other one, it faced in. If nothing else, it made it easier to differentiate the two.

    The new red battery definitely makes it stand out!

    I noticed today that my temp. got up to 104.3 while playing cut the rope. Rooted, but running stock. Seems a bit hot. Anyone having issues with the Rezound battery running warmer than the stock Tbolt battery? Phone has been idle for around 40 minutes now: 83.3 degrees.

    Oh ya, I forgot to add that it shipped in a box big enough for basketball shoes, and was starting to get irritated about Rediculous overpackaging, then it dawned on me that with all that extra power, it needed that huge box to hold it all in.

    Anytime a package comes from Verizon you have to sign. Now that you know this just leave a note authorizing with your signature. And they will

    I ordered rezound regular, and the TB extended. Both arrived this morning. Only tried the extended so far. VERY happy with it. Size is not as GIANT as I expected, that is such a plus. BTW ordered the charger only. opened the box and flipped out. Found nothing in it at first glance. they have a preformed cardboard holder. It appeared empty. shook box nothing. I then slid the cardboard out and found charger in the back of it in a little 1/2" recces LOL, such a big box, guess I expected bigger ( I know , that's what she said )

    9.5 hrs off charger, 70% batt left. Multiple calls and texts, 40 min of internet surfing, checked news, weather, and streamed 2+ hrs of pandora. So far so good. A noticeable improvement.

    My battery hasn't showed up yet but I'd be interested to hear if anyone can confirm or deny higher temps. Do you have a case on the phone? If so, what type?

    I have the stock, rubber sleeve type case and I have not noticed any temp differences with the new battery. It's a definite improvement over the stock TB batt.
