WIth the unlimited package It is charging right now and I bought the extended battery so I have a battery question. If I keep the phone I plan on getting a seido convert case and know that cases are usually hard to pull of to swap out batteries. What do folks do with the the original battery? Is there anyway to charge independantly and put in a cradle/USB to use as an external backup? I know that you can buy and external battery. You know I read the reviews and ratings and know two folks who love the phone so I guess I will just have to "find out" the hard way. It seems you look at any phone and they all have similar user ratings. ----------------- Also I am maintaining my env Touch phone to use as a replacement for my husband's phone should it or the battery die. .... Do I just charge it every few days to maintain? Remove battery and let run down? What is best way to keep an old phone in decent shape.
