    I got the extended battery for my S4 before I even got the phone. I assumed that, with all that horsepower under the hood, I'd need the extra juice. Wrong. At the end of the day with the typical amount of useage, I've still got 20%-30% power left. I'm pleased as hell. The only problem I'm having is setting up my email account. I got gmail working instantly but my personal email ain't happening. On the phone with tech support as we speak.

    How much thicker does the extended battery make the phone? I'm thinking about picking one up myself.

    Try K9 Mail. Many find it superior to the built in Email app.

    +1 for K-9 and Kaiten is even better.

    Who is your email provider? My email simply worked.

    It's about double the thickness the battery and bigger back. It's the 5200 mAh. For someone who's a power user, it probably doubles the capacity of the phone.

    You betcha. Real cheap. PM me *g*. Got no use for it and it's still brand new. Never attached to the phone.

    Finally figured it out. I put in the pop server name and left out one character...having a senior moment here. Mail works great now.

    K9 mail will send spam email to ALL your email contacts if and when you uninstall it!

    Seriously? Guess one should uninstall it using ADB or ROM Toolbox.
