    Mine was supposed to arrive today but do to Isaac its being delayed. Also if you have more than one Nexus on your plan, they only charge shipping once and they will ship it next day air :)

    Mine arrived today. A bit surprised because I ordered it yesterday.

    Does it say Sprint on the battery cover? Also how much thickness does it add?

    EDIT: is it an NFC battery?

    I was also surprised at the shipping, I checked the tracking on mine because I am going out of town and was wondering if it would get here in time and saw next day air.

    Yes, it says Sprint on the battery cover and yes it's a NFC battery. It doesn't add much thickness at all. I mean, the battery is *thicker*, but with the cover it comes with, it's not noticeable at all. Overall the phone still looks like stock, thickness wise.

    No you have to call telesales. It didn't take long when I did, just try to call on a weekday during regular business hours so that you don't get someone in India :) I called on a Saturday and got someone named Luigi (who was easy to understand) but then noticed I called the wrong department then got transfered to someone I could barely understand.

    Yeah, it was a really quick phone call. I was off the phone in under 10 min. with my battery on its way.

    It adds maybe 1mm thickness. Hard to tell, had to put side by side with my wife's GNex to see it.

    I got two - one for my son and one for me - free, not even shipping. They charged our credit card $12.95 for both batteries, then credited our Sprint account. Sweet.

    Well so far I'm on 13 hours of heavy use and still have 26% left. With stock battery I would have had it on the charger 3 hours ago @ 20%.

    I got mine 5 days from ordering, cost $7 to ship. The battery seems to be the same one that is for the Verizon Nexus, but with a battery cover that fits properly. Running ShabbyPenguin's 4.1 build with lean kernel I was able to get about 17 hours of battery life with 3.5 hours of screen time at the brightest setting. The extra thickness adds to the phone in my opinion and makes it easier to hold. Also the extra weight feels better.
