    There's links in my thread to the correct battery for either the white or blue D2Gs.

    I owned a d2g for about a week before switching to the X. I was concerned about transitioning to a software keyboard after using an original droid for about a year. I quickly got use to the sw kb and now prefer it(especially swype). I thought the kb on the d2g was poorly layed out anyway...

    Long story short - I LOVE the screen and the dx in general and have never looked back.

    P.S. The battery on my d2g was a complete joke.

    and I agree with hook. every phone may/may not have battery issues. I believe like any new phones out there, you just have put high usage to it and sort of drain the battery down just to give it some kick.
    there are apps out there that may help, like JuiceDefender. it works for me by customizing it to fit my needs. im getting anywhere between 15-22 hours before charging. i check emails, both personal and business, i have documents i work on, surf the net, etc or like others, get the extended battery.
    good luck in your findings though...
