Galaxy S3 w/o battery or back cover . . .
I just got my 3rd replacement phone for my HTC Rezound from VZW. Second one in the last week and third since ICS was sent to my phone. All 3 were factory reconditions to new condition.
So the VZW tech support gal was very friendly and tried to help me with my phone problem. The major problem was that all these phones and my original one gave me a "No SIM card" error when I started the phone. Of course once I unlocked the phone screen it recognized the SIM card and worked just fine. There was also two other problems like the voice dialer would not work on one and when I did dial a call using the key pad on the phone as soon as I hit the call key the screen went to sleep.
All three of the replacements failed to fix the problem. So she offered to send me a reconditioned Motorola Razor this time.
Wasn't satisfied as I think the Razor is a lesser phone than the Rezound. I asked her for a Galaxy S3. She hesitated at first but went to her supervisor and got permission to send me a reconditioned S3. Only catch was that it did not have a battery or back cover. Neither did I so she helped me search Amazon for a cover and extended battery. Cost was like $24 shipped from Amazon.
My question is what you other smartphone aficionados think I should do. Got ahead and take the chance that this S3 might work for the next year and just buy a decent extended battery and back cover from Amazon or whomever sells decent batteries.
Need to know asap what you folks think of this deal by tomorrow afternoon so I can get back to VZW. I want to hopefully can get this phone by Friday and a battery and cover by Saturday so I can have a useable phone in a couple days.
Thanks in advance for any advice you all can give me.
