    Has anyone bought the extended battery (or the charging set with the second standard battery) at a VZW store? I want to use my Living Social deal so I have to go to a store or use telesales. The store I bought my Nex they didn't have any in, so if no one has seen them in stores I'll just call telesales. Just curious. Thanks!

    I bought my extended battery at a corporate store on launch day, though they said they only had two in stock at the time.

    I ordered the 50% off extended battery through Verizon online, and though it was promised overnight, after I emailed them yesterday, they informed me it was out of stock.

    [from other thread]

    Ordered one at 50% off two days ago, right before others were told it was out of stock. Now I got an e-mail saying the shipping will be delayed, but apparently im still in the queue for one.

    Got mine over telesales along with a case and it was painless. Plus they gave me 50% off the battery where as my local store wouldnt. Free 2-day shipping.

    I bought one yesterday at a corp store becasue I can no longer find it on their webpage. I had to call a few stores to find one who had it in stock and then convince the CSR that it was $24.99 and not $49.99.

    I could not use my living social promotion for the battery because there is a minimum $25 charge.

    I ordered mine on the 19th and when i go to the order status page i just get errors, i knew i should have logged into my verizon account when i placed the order, at least i would have a status.

    Sounds like they wont be shipping for awhile though, i may just go into the store today and see if they still have any.

    Yeah, I'm planning on getting the standalone battery charger set too, so that shouldn't be an issue. Sounds like I have a better chance in stores, I'll start calling around. Thanks guys!

    Does it come with a new back cover, or is one not needed?

    Yes and I would use it. I tried the standard and I am not comfortable with the tension. The extended smooths out the dip which like better anyways.
