1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Needing someone's help. I bought a new "OEM Extended Battery" Model BW8X for my Bionic and installed it this evening. Two suspicious things happened which have me perplexed. First, I need to tell you that I know I should plug the ph in and charge it 100% before I turn on the ph. I plugged my phone in....and where I would normally get the "charging battery" icon, I got nothing but a black screen. I waited a bit...then hit the power button....thinking that maybe something was wrong. The phone powered up as usual.....only the battery indicator in the upper right of the notification bar shows a red ? mark. After going into System Settings/ Battery the phone reads "100% Unknown"
    I've never seen this before. This is actually my 2nd purchase of an extended battery, only this is the first time I've bought online from a vendor other than Verizon directly. I reinstalled my old battery and everything went normal.
    I am thinking that my phone isn't reading the battery at all.....why...I don't know. Can this be fixed? Or do I need to send the battery back? Any help would be appreciated.

    Ok, so I did a little test today. My husband has a bionic too so I put the defunct battery in his only to find the battery acting the same way. We bought two batteries so I placed the other new battery in my phone and find it works like a charm. I am beginning to think I have a detective battery. Looks like I'll be contacting the vendor in the morning. "Blame"
