    Service Menu Still works (Not sure if anyone ever needed to use this anyways)


    ##PROGRAM

    SPC Password: 000000


    *Remove Stock Games (NOVA and Lets golf, they take up 250mb+ of Space) unless you want them.

    *Extended Battery is worth the money and adds no bulkiness or weight what do ever.

    Nope


    Stock Batt is 1520 or so MAH

    Extended is 1930 or so.

    basically 400 more MAH its exactly the same dimensions.

    How much did the extended battery cost? Did you get it through Verizon or through ebay (or some other place)?

    My tip is - the standard battery cover will fit with the extended length battery. I don't know if this is "safe", but it does make the phone it's standard slim size with the extended battery. It doesn't bulge or anything.

    Well two days later and I vzw.com is sold out of cases AND batterys. I dont even have screen protectors, because I wanted to buy two things for the discount and all the site has is sp. So, basically, my phone is naked and Im not using protection.

    I hope they update their website soon, I was thinking tomorrow.

    Your local verizon store should have them. I bought my case and screen protectors from the one by me first thing saturday morning. They had just gotten them in.

    This trick doesn't seem to be working on mine. My wireless connection won't connect and i took it to Verizon, would they change it?

    I got a badass rubberized hard snap case for 5.99 off amazon. Better than paying 20-30 for a **** one from verizon. Fit's awesome, doesn't add much size at all, doesn't inhibit any keyboard movement, etc.
