    I went to my local Verizon store to pick up my battery and it was the wrong kind.

    He looked at the system and it showed 3000 available when none were there the day before.

    So I'm having it delivered.

    Cell Phones - Smartphones: Cell Phone Service, Accessories - Verizon Wireless

    Call and order one before the 1st when the 1/2 off deal expires.

    link just takes me to the homepage. i can never find the extended battery. only the standard battery. =(

    UPDATE: I called vzw csr (*611) and told them I was looking for an extended battery and how I couldn't find it online. Told the lady I have a sku # and search by that method (SKU # SAMI515BATX).

    She found it and then told me it was $50 dollars. I told her that I read somewhere that its supposed to be 50% off and try adding it to the cart to see if the discount applies before you checkout. She said she already did that and still showed up as $50.

    Told her again about the 50% off promotion and she said she will look into some more. So I was on hold and when she came back she said she found it for $25 plus tax. So I ordered one over the phone for $27 and some change.

    Long story short, tell them to search for the battery using the sku and tell them about the 50% off promotion. Just takes a little bit of patience and repeating the fact that it's 50% off and the csr will do some digging and then realize it is.

    If it doesn't show up on the accessories page it means it is sold out. Again. Might not hurt to call.

    Are there any holster/shell style cases that will fit with this extended battery?

    unless the case is super tight, any of them will fit. its hardly an increase in size with the new battery.

    i bought and returned the extended $25 battery. it made no difference in battery life for me, and i couldn't find a case that fit it. prob why they're still $25.

    i would suggest getting the standard battery that comes with the portable charger. much more useful for me :D
