    I'm pretty sure this thread will get directed elsewhere, but I'd like to ask if there is any case out in the market (Verizon or otherwise) that will fit the DInc with the extended 2150mah battery with the new battery door? I know there are pouches and such, but I'd really like a case similiar to the clear one that I currently have on my Dinc. Any help is appreciated...

    It belongs in the accessories forum...

    To answer the question: most likely not. There are hardly ever cases made to fit with an extended battery. Also, this question was already answered several times

    Now the dilemma begins... PROTECT my phone VS. USE my phone more. What to do?

    It's all personal preference. The current cases out there don't do much to "protect" the phone enough so you won't be sacrificing much by going bare in my opinion.

    Just got the followup call from the VZW rep from my initial complaint about the 1300 mAH battery being stupidly inadequate. They let me know the 2150 is now in stock and it is $59.99 including the extended door.

    I don't know anything about the physical dimensions of the battery, so don't ask me about that. I just know it is 2150 mAH, is HTC OEM, and it's available to order now.

    Now, should I grab one of those or stick with the 1500 mAH TP2 battery.

    EDIT: As of 5:23 EST, the website doesn't show it, however the VZW rep on the phone confirmed they have them in stock ready to order. *shrug*

    Just called them up. The guy saw it in the system, tried to order it, but it was basically access denied. He quoted me the same price of $59.99. But he said looks like they are not available yet.

    He really had no clue for an ETA when asked. Bummer.

    Well I don't know if it's by area or maybe the young lady just shipped me and extended battery for the wrong phone LOL but i just called *611. I asked if they were selling any standard or extended batterys for the Incredible and she said yes we have both.

    For the Extended she said it showed available but had to check if it was shipping in *our* area. I'm guessing OUR means they must route the *611 to a local verizon rep. She came back and said it is indeed shipping. I asked her 3 times to confirm it was for the HTC Incredible and she said it was.

    The order went through without a problem and she gave me a confirmation number. It was $59.99, with tax it came to $63.59 with free 2-day shipping. She said I should have it Monday but I can't see it shipping today so I'm guessing it'll actually be Tuesday.

    I really hope it's actually for the Incredible and she didn't ship me a extended battery for something else lol.

    *Edit The standard battery is $39.99 if anyone wants one of those.

    That's odd. Not sure how some of us can get the battery while others are not able to (me). You would think they would be available nationwide you know?

    Well, was going to edit my post but since the failboat was posted, you may want to change that.

    I just called Verizon again. Guess what, the guy was able to order it! It came out to $63.59 as Anubis said. The guy said to tell people here on the forums (since I mentioned it to him) that the extended battery is indeed available. Its not on the website yet but if you call up you will be able to order it!

    Gosh, and I just ordered the Seidio. Don't think it will fit with the extended battery. Will probably have to return it (its supposed to arrive tomorrow).

    Yeah definitely. He said he did not know why it was not on the website, but said to let the guys know on the android forums they are here!

    I wonder how much thickness the battery will add to the phone..and whether it will fit in the verizon silicon case.

    Im pretty sure they are not going to. Bummer for me for just ordering the Seidio. To everyone else who has as well and is getting this battery.
