    Thanks.
    Someone pulled the an update file from Moto's servers and posted it on the XDA forums. There are a few threads on here and on XDA talking about how to to it, why/why not to do it, etc.

    Thanks for the info. I just watched a video on youtube regarding the update. i think I'm better off waiting for the factory update.

    Storing the battery in the fridge is the best way. Been a ham operator for over 10 yrs and that's how most hams store their batteries.

    How much does the extended battery cost and how much more life do you get out of it? Also does it come with a new rear cover or something cuz I've heard it makes the phone bigger. How much bigger? I'll give you my battery stats as of right now. I've been on the phone using the internet with wifi pretty much since the minute I took it off the charger so it's drained fast. Let me know what you think....right now I'm at 40% battery left I've got 2hrs 17 mins on battery, 2hrs 14 mins on display, 1hr 15 mins on browser and 2hrs 15 mins on wifi. So basically my display has been on since I took the phone off the charger and the wifi as well and I've used the internet a lot and sent some texts and been on the market a little bit. Does this sound normal? Any guess where I'd be with the extended battery? Usually when I use the phone for this long of a period of time I have it plugged in the whole time but where Im sitting right now the charger doesn't reach. Thanks!

    Ok I just answered my own question and checked Verizons website and see that the extended battery and cover is $49.99. For those of you that have it do you think it's worth the money? I see the stock battery is 1540 and the extended is 1930 which seems like quite a big difference. Im considering buying it today when I go pay my bill. The only setback is the phone is already kind of bulky especially in my work pants and Im not sure if I really NEED it or just WANT it you know. I appreciate any opinions and sorry not trying to hijack.

    I have it and it seem to me if you use your phone a lot it's worth it. I get about an hour more with it.

    I think if you buy 2 things you get a discount. You could buy the universal battery pack thingy.

    Anyway, the extended battery for the Droid 3 is about 1mm thicker. There's a picture somewhere around here, but it really is barely noticeable. Of course, it does make the phone a bit heavier too. Get it!!!
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!

    Being that the original is 1540 and the extended is 1920 I'd think you'd get more than an hour more out of it. I've got other more important thing I need to spend my money on right now but I will have a $240 credit on my account so maybe I'll get it...

    You do have to contend with the probability that you'll actually use the phone more since you have to worry less about battery. On the size, the difference is small though you may find it doesn't fit some cases. The battery back on the original fits over the extended, though it isn't recommended.

    Its hard to measure the difference between the two since swapping them may lead the phone to misreport the strength of either battery. Also different phones could have different issues and settings. I would say its worth it if you don't also have to replace your case and other things, but then I've never used the standard battery.
