    So basically you could use it as a stock size extended battery?

    I typically don't complain about the TB a lot. I love my phone, knew what I was getting into with the spotty 4g network, random reboots, etc.., but Verizon should just send every TB owner one of these batteries for free. We shouldn't even have to ask. This is really ridiculous that I have to pay another $30-50 just to get my phone to last an acceptable amount of time.

    Again, I love my TB, but Verizon and HTC collectively dropped the ball big time on the Thunderbolt IMO.

    Batteries for 4g phones are 50% off at Verizon wireless stores right now, making the htc rezound battery only $20. I think I'm going to pick one up for my thunderbolt. I'm not sure if it's the same deal at "factory authorized Verizon retailers" though. At least they are throwing us a little bone for having such short battery life on our 4g phones.

    Just tried rezound battery its a little bigger but you can lock down all corners on stock cover and doesn't have any gaps on sides. Had to order one shipping to my house for 19.99

    Just ordered one from the Verizon website for $19.99 with free 2-day shipping.


    I guess I could demand that VZ/HTC send me one for free and wait to see how that works out, or I could spend twenty bucks and get a spare battery with 220 more mAh by Monday.

    Kind of a wish in one hand, crap in the other situation here. Not a tough call for me.

    No just add to cart and then hit checkout, it will show up as a $20 discount and $19.99 with free shipping.

    Just purchased one myself today. Theyre still $20, get them while they're hot!! I still think Verizon should have gifted these to Thunderbolt owners, but I digress... Hopefully I do this right. I'm charging it until green while powered off, then I plan on booting into recovery and wiping the battery stats, running my phone until it's out of battery, then charging it until it's green again. I think that is the proper procedure, if there is one, to calibrating the new battery. One thing to note: the Rezound battery is noticeably heavier, not by much, but if this may bother some people.

    I also got a chance to check out the new Razr. That phone is sick, I'm so jealous!! Beautiful screen and runs smooth as any phone/rom I've ever used. Nexus-schmexus, get one of those if your contract is up! It is huge though. Thin it may be, I don't know if I'd be able to tolerate a phone so wide and tall. As for the Rezound, meh. Between all of the devs for the TB, I don't think there will be much of anything we will be missing out on for a new HTC phone.

    *ps- This should be stickied, and posted in the Thunderbolt battery discussion, if it hasn't been already

    Is there an app or method that would allow us remaining stock guys to wipe the battery stats to set up the new battery.

    I would just take the plunge and root already and flash a custom ROM if I were u (i suggest Gingeritus or BAMF). You get so much more out of the phone anyway. Basic step by step institutions are out there that make the process so much easier.
    But from what I can tell, people get their phone used to the battery through a process of charging and draining. There's info out there and everyone seems to do it differently, so I don't know.

    This threads just been BAMFed!

    having different back up battery?

    I'm thinking about getting one of these Rezound batteries. I've been meaning to get a backup battery anyway. But it occurred to me: Will it cause my calibration to be screwy if my back up battery is different than my primary battery? Is it better to have two identical batteries if you are going to be changing in the middle of the day?

    BTW running stock GB, just haven't seen enough evidence that rooting is worth it for me.

    He was wrong, unless it changed in the last 48 hours. I gave them my number and it came up at 19.99 from 39.99. I'm using it now, got 13 hours on first full charge. Usually get about 8 or 9. Light to moderate use.
