    i mean not by much, but I pre-ordered at 53.99
    I thougtht they would just ship it when its in stock,but they sent me an email to confirm the $6 price increase before they ship it out

    And then they got the nerve to say act fast because quantities are limited. I mean wasnt that the whole reason why I pre ordered a month ago to be the first in line?

    This is my first time ordering from them. They enticed me with the lower price and earlier ship date than the manufactured had. Then they pushed back their ship date to a week after the manufacture shipped, and now they raising the price.

    bad business

    Well since this is similar to your topic, but not exact I thought I would share another option to consider. I ordered a 15.99 3000mAh battery from eBay from Hong Kong and all I can say is WOW, so after 3 days of test I was able to go 2 of the 3 days without a charge, had brightness up, not on auto backlight, 4G and web browsed on wifi, and used bluetooth to push it to the limits and only got down to about 25% even then. So i feel pretty confident in this battery, thats just my 2 cents.

    I was going to buy the Seidio brand but Amazon still didnt have it in stock so tested this one and I am very pleased

    There are a BUNCH on ebay right now. Just search for "HTC EVO battery" on ebay and you'll see them come up all over. I think the replacement battery cover looks even better than the Seidio one (and it looks like it actually might protect the camera lens pretty good (not sure though).

    I'm not big on adding bulk to a phone, but those ebay batteries and replacement covers really got me thinking about it.

    yes just search "HTC EVO 3000" it comes with a new rear plate! and i agree it looks like you can go caseless with the new back.

    yes I just searched for a battery and they are 3000mAh vs the 3500mAh but to save the extra cash is cool and it comes with extra backplate and a wall charger where you can charge your spare battery as well

    You should have received the apology memo stating no Price Increase for any pre-order. The confirmation email simply had a typo. All pre-orders received the discount and free shipping.

    I also preordered from mobile city. I am a major power user and the stock battery was a joke for me.this battery has made my evo perfect! I am typing this TRYING to kill the battery so I can condition it with a second full charge. This is after a 14 hour day. Lots of talk.. lots of of data. I streamed Pandora for a couple hours alone. This thing will get anyone through a long day of HEAVY use. The quality is really good. The replacement door attached much more securely then the original. And it solved the problem I had with one side not sitting flush with the old battery door. All in all the door is definatly OEM quality. The best part is now my camera lens is resessed. So I don't have to stress where I set my phone down. I also preordered the matching innocell case...I highly recommend this battery, if your flying through the stock battery you will love it.
