    I have both the extended battery and the extended battery door, however my high gloss silicone case from Verizon bulges at the sides and doesn't grip like it does with the regular battery and battery door. Is there a case that will allow both extended battery and extended battery door without bulging at the side and still protects the device? I HATE scratches on my device so a case is a must, but I put the phone in my pocket so I need a case that isn't too bulky or "sticky" like the non-high gloss silicone cases if at all possible, but I am willing to try anything that will fit the extended battery. Any info would be greatly appreciated as I am not sure which cases are out there for the DX that are good. TIA

    I got mine from Motorola with a 60% code. I picked mine up for $25 delivered.

    Nobody has addressed my question though. I have just the extended battery with the original cover. The ext battery with the original cover puts pressure on the back of the screen. I have the Verizon holster/case. Is it safe to use the extended battery without the back cover, but in the holster case?

    Thanks,
    John

    The shell/holster works but isn't very "pretty"

    It would probably be ok because the case covers all but the camera and speaker. Wouldn't take it around any kind of dust or moisture though.

    So now I'm uber confused, I read the reviews the motorola battery was called junk, the seido was highly glorified tho, both have had the accurate reading problem, would reseting the batt stats from cw fix the accurate reading?

    I have the DX with the extended battery and I have a Nantech Vertx case on it. I am running BBC Darkside rom and I get easily through a full day. My day starts at 5am and ends at 11pm and I always have at least 20% on battery life left. I have the VZW 1800mah battery. Well worth the money.

    Well since the bulge would mean a bigger battery, which would mean more mAH, then yes, essentially it would be worth the battery life, but I personally wouldn't want the gigantic bulge.
