    ok any of u VZW reps, question for u:
    online as well as the store says extended battery for the Droid 2 global is available. ok so I bought one on black friday. when I got it #1 the battery sticks out #2 the back door that came with it is black, my global is WHITE!!! as stated on my order form! ok fine, call vzw to get supposedly a correct battery & white backdoor. ok 4 days later, today, I opened the box, looked at the battery...guess what??? same damn thing! first rep says no no it will fit. we will send u a correct one. bologna!!! this new rep says, ma'am I just tried the extended battery in another D2G phone and it doesn't fit. so he says, ma'am the stock # is the same, I don't understand.
    well now I AM stuck with 2 ext battery with model BP7X that only fits Droid 2 NOT Global!!!
    so why are you saying it is compatible when it really isn't? let alone send me the same damn color when my global is white??? and....the battery is too thick to sit in the phone.
    who else has this problem? VZW is hearing from me as well as Motorola!

    Erm.....I'm equally confused. The bp7x should fit the Droid, Droid 2, AND Droid 2 Global. Is it the battery or the door that doesn't fit?

    I have the black D2G and the extended battery fits. It does stick out a little, but the new door covers it up.

    The extended battery is larger and requires another backdoor. The problem you're having is a color match ordering issue, not a battery size issue. The door that comes with it has a bump to allow the extra space the battery takes.

    Thanks everyone. the rep tried it on his and it barely fit inside the phone. the door cover definitely does not fit. so im not coocoo lol...I think its that particular model or perhaps my d2g. I go back today to see return both batteries cause neither is working for me and I got charged twice....

    Picture looks exactly as what it supposed to be. Interestingly - Verizon site says NOT compatible with Droid 2 Global :). But someone on the forum said R2D2 one matches perfectly with the white D2G.

    I am also on the market for BP7X with the right battery lid for the white D2G. As I am not in the US right now, it is not as easy as going to the local store and checking out/buying the right one. Will be happy if we get solid confirmation on this

    As a note to the OP - as it was already mentioned above - Droid 1, Droid 2 and Droid 2 Global all use exactly the same batteries. (BP6X). Battery lids(covers) are also interchangeable between the 3 (not that they match color wise!). BP7X sticks couple of millimeters - this is why the replacement "extended" lid is required.

    returned both extended batteries. here's one last problem, vzw could not find the first order. I handed them the receipt with the invoice # and it seems that the order doesn't exist. I better get my $$ back.
