    The battery and cover fit nicely. It came with an 80% charge. It is just slightly thicker with no "bulge". I put it in my wife's Pro this morning without telling her and I'm going to see if she even notices it!!!

    Update: She used the phone and didn't even notice it!!!!

    What battery did you buy? My wife also is complaining about the battery life on her pro.

    Thanks,

    Got the extended battery yesterday. Agreed, it barely alters the physical dimension of the phone. I wonder if a standard case will fit.... Gonna stop at a store later today and see. Will report back.

    from my knowledge, unless it's a "slim extended battery" which requires no back replacement battery covers, or if it's a soft flexible case then extended batteries aren't compatible with "most cases," but of course I could always be wrong =)

    Don't know if the cases will fit, but I know that the desktop cradle thing for it has a special adapter to be able to make it fit with the extended battery in place.

    I guess another question aside from the case fit, is how well does the extended battery improve battery life of the phone?

    Battery Life

    Not sure, but it is 1860Mah vs 1450, so you would expect much better life. You absolutely cannot detect any "bulge". It looks and feels like it should be there.

    Just got the extended battery yesterday so can't speak to the life yet, but a couple of observations on the fit and case issue:

    Appearance: As has been said by others, the extended battery and cover fit like they should have always been there. The phone is now only slightly thicker; uniform instead of a bulge at the top. I actually think it is easier to hold now. Given how well it fits and looks, I'm a little annoyed that Verizon/Motorola ships the phone with an inadequate battery when the bigger one seems like such a natural fit.

    Case: I bought the Verizon black rubberized case before I had the battery. It actually still fits even with the extended battery (a testament to how little the extended battery changes the dimensions). Even with the original battery the case had an issue with the top power/unlock button being a little tough to hit. It isn't any better with the case on the extended battery, but it isn't any worse.

    I'll report back on battery performance once I've let it run its course.

    I'm assuming the extended battery won't come with the original back cover... but will the original battery fit with the extended cover? If so, the original battery would still be useful as a backup...

    I tried it out and the original battery seems to stay seated even with the extended battery in place.

    I have commented more on this in the "Droid Pro battery life" thread...

    First off, I am not running ANY widgets. If you like to turn your phone off then on in the morning you have to make sure to check Menu>Applications>Running Services. There will be a boatload of crapware running in the background. You must make sure to stop all of them except for the following:

    FOR THE RECORD, THESE PICS WERE TAKEN ON DIFFERENT DAYS SO DISREGARD THE BATTERY METER UP TOP!

    Next, Make sure you set your network to CDMA and not global (learned this from my blackberry) Menu>Wireless & Networks>Mobile Networks>Network Mode Set to CDMA

    Next ONLY run wifi when needed!, I also have bluetooth and gps off.

    I put my screen timeout time to 2 minutes (learned that from iphone)

    If you have an email client that does push/poll, set the polling time to 1 hour (unless you really need it to be less)

    Here's a picture of what my display is set to:

    Where has everyone purchased the Droid Pro extended battery and cover? I could only find it on the verizon wireless website and I don't want to spend $50 on it. Any suggestions?
