    So I got my new phone in the mail today, YAY! It's the Dinc2, refurbished and replacing my D2G.

    As someone in the other thread tossed out there, the geniuses at VZW forgot to give me a battery with the phone. Did they expect me to transfer my Motorola battery over to the HTC? lol. -1 VZW. So it's also missing the 16gb SD card, which I kinda expected them to do. But it's great that they expected me to keep my 8GB SD card from my D2G and transfer it over to the Dinc2 that has no built in memory, like my D2G had 8internal and 8 external. Sorry but 8gb in the new phone isn't going to cut it when you have tons of music, videos, pictures etc like I have.

    So I go to VZW store and she goes into the back, 10 minutes later she tells me they don't have any batteries for my phone, not even tester batteries. So she goes to order me a standard battery from their warehouse.....oh they don't have any there either. LOL. So she orders me an Extended Battery. At this point I'm kinda iffy. They are great but they are bulky, and the cover for them really makes the phone look weird around the camera, flash and speaker. But oh well, it's a crap ton of battery life, I will end up loving that.

    I get home and I remember, S**T I ordered a case for my phone the other day off ebay, and it's only built to fit the standard phone, LOL. Great, theres like $6 down the drain unless I can return it to the seller and get my money back. I don't think they make cases to fit over extended batteries. GRRRRR.

    FML, seriously.

    Well good news, I just got off the phone with VZW Warranty. I managed to get the, to send me the standard battery for FREE and the 16gb card for FREE. LOL. I tried to get them to send me the white cover because its prettier than the black one, but no luck, theybdont have them, lol. So now I can use the case I ordered off ebay and I'll have the extended battery on hand if I ever go on Vacation or whatever.

    I was telling my friends I feel like one of those super coupon people on TV. Except I use the stuff I get for free instead of storing it in he basement for the rest of my life lol

    if your getting a replacement device and swapping manufacturers you will not receive a new battery, at least in my experiences...

    well if it makes it any better i got a dinc2 on thursday with extended battery as a replacement. but guess what 24 hours on the charger with phone off and still only 15% battery life.

    it says its charging but no power is getting to the battery. so my replacement phone is getting a replacement phone.

    oh man that sucks, I've been absolutely in love with my extended battery. I love the thickness it adds (I hate thin phones) and I and running on nearly 2 days of battery life, with a few minutes of charge here and there to keep it a float while I go out to the bars, lol. So Maybe just under 2 days of life without those charges. I just wish they made cases to fit over the battery, I love it.

    Oh and I got my SD card from VZW with another extra standard battery and they are sending me another 16gb SD card by mistake too, lol. I've added it all up, and I've gotten over $500 worth of free stuff from VZW (including phone). So I don't think the thread title applies to me anymore, lol

    Destin your phone doesn't charge right did right either? How long have you had yours?
