    So I went and purchased the extended-life battery because the original battery was draining way too fast. Seems to be better, but would like it to last more than 1 day <shrug>. Anyway, my dilemma now is the after-market case I bought doesn't fit because of the ever-so-slightly bulkier battery. It would be nice to know which cases fit using the new battery before I purchase the case and have to return it. Anyone know of any cases that do fit using the new battery?

    I have the extended battery and I used the otterbox commuter. To get it to fit I had to remove the backplate but it works just fine. It actually improves the cooling of the battery.
