    First off, has Verizon stopped carrying this phone? I can't seem to find it on their website, even as a "Certified Pre-owned" model.

    What I'm looking for is something from either HTC or Verizon regarding battery life; standby, talk time, whatever. A link to something "official" would be great. After purchasing a 1620mA Rezound battery, I'm still getting about 5 hours before I'm in the yellow, and that's with extremely light use. I have a feeling that this is somewhat less than what was advertised.

    If u write them a well worded email they might give u a extended for free.. What r u gonna do if the talk time is higher anyway its a estimated time there nothing u can do.. I can pick up any phone the thunderbolt, Rezound, razr. GNex and from a full charge it will be dead in 4hour 30mins to 5 hour 30 min average. As long as ur screen brightness is Down and ur auto sync is off there not much u can do and changing phones won't do nothing Cuz there all about the same! My 2750 ext battery almost powers me through 8 hour 30mins lol and I borrowed my buddy's razr maxx and got through about a lil over 9 hours still charged for 30 min at work before I left work.. And i really like the feel of the ext battery in the tbolt as long as u don't wear tight pants should not be a problem the 200 more mha that the rezound is providing is not going to due much anyway
