    I've been reading a lot lately that the battery from the Rezound has greatly improved battery life for many Thunderbolt owners, so I ordered one from Verizon yesterday. I figured twenty bucks wasn't too much to lose if it doesn't work as well as I hope. Anyhow, it should be here in a couple days, so fingers crossed . . .

    Works Great

    I have been using the Rezound battery since a few days from owning the Thunderbolt (about 2 mths) and it does last alot longer than the original one did. I also do the unplug in the morning when the light is green and let the orange light turn green again and it really does last me at least all day.Depending on how much I use it sometimes I have 30 percent or so when I go to bed at around 12am. My neice has the Thunderbolt and she is charging hers all the time. I took a video on it today (it was a fairly long video)and played it back and took some other pics and viewed them and I think it went down like 1 percent. I was expecting it to have used alot more battery than that. I am VERY happy with the Rezound battery.

    I got the 2700 battery for $20 at amazon.com. I love it so far. No problems so far:)

    Just out of curiosity, how does Verizon ship stuff ordered off their site: UPS, FedEx, or USPS?

    My Rezound extended battery is coming Fedex with a required signature (can leave a printed note saying to drop it at your place, or the neighbor's or something else?).

    My Rezound came on the same day as my extended battery (yesterday) so I did the regular battery yesterday and was planning on doing what you just suggested tonight. My Rezound was used but had very light usage.

    Well I've got the new battery up and running, and after two charge/discharge cycles, I managed to make it all of 5 hours before the indicator went into the yellow. No calls made, a couple minutes on the internet, a few texts; other than that, the phone just sat. Maybe I'm being hasty, but I'm about ready to assume that this thing is simply a piece of **** and that I need to look for a new phone. Sucks.

    Something must be really wrong. I'm squeezing about an extra 4-5 hours of battery life since switching to the rezound battery. It lasts until bedtime before going yellow.

    It's a regular-sized battery; it simply has more capacity. The phone's physical profile is unchanged, and you can use the same back that you use with the stock battery.
