    I believe i read on the battery bay site that if you chose the free 14 day shipping/air mail we would NOT get any kind of tracking numbers... I ordered mine last wednesday. Still a no show... sit tight everybody.

    Im suprised there still isnt a picture of the battery on the site. I even googled it an still a no show so it looks like this is the only company that cares to sell an extended battery for this phone... so who knows... maybe they are backed up with many MANY orders since everyone knows the blasted battery is terrible. BUT maybe not because if it wasnt for this site... I wouldnt even know about the battery coming out because I dont even see anything about it from a google search... so thanks!

    You are so right Heavyweight nobody is even coming up with an extended battery for this phone, neither samsung or metro. Instead all we get is an extra battery and charger combo that was 18 bucks and then they jack up the price back to 35 bucks and thats it.

    Am I the only one thinking pictures are overrated? What I really want to know is do they work, will they charge in the phone, how long will it take to charge, how long does it last, does it heat up, etc etc.

    I was able to contact the ebay seller. If you don't need the charger he will sell the battery and case for 13.88 shipped! He verified that the battery is rated for 3600 as well

    The ebay seller has 54 negative feedback in 12 months.and there 1 negative imperticular says. waste of money not even compatible to charge battery with phone. Hopefully this isn't the same case with extended battery there selling for the indulge

    54 negatives out of thirteen thousand positives equates to a 99.4% positive feedback rating.
    I think everyone would agree that a 99 percent positive on Ebay is more trustworthy than a website no one has ever heard of

    At least the ebay item has a picture of the case and battery which are clearly made for the sch-r910

    Edit: Wow batterybay only has a 71 percent rating. Some of the negative reviews sound scary

    Found another list of reviews for batterbay and they don't look so good. A lot of reviews complain about really late shipping and no commmunication. Even some of the positive reviews had this complaint
    batterybay.net Reviews at Nextag.com

    I'm glad that Ebay and Paypal will protect you from bad sellers. Id be afraid to give batterybay my credit card then some hacker steals it lol

    Good time to remind those of us who bought the batteries, (thanks poly for asking questions) to POST REVIEWS when you get them...

    Please don't forget. WE, are the community for this phone. For the time being we are all there is. So please don't forget that there are a lot of people out there not as smart or technologically minded as us who may think our phones "issues" are insurmountable. I know that we know they aren't, so thats why for now it has to be our job when we find a fix (i.e. better battery) to do our best to get the word out.

    Battery life is very nearly the biggest problem with this device, and if some scrub aftermarket company has solved it for us, lets make sure we make a thread about it.

    As you receive em please post your reviews, as I will with mine. If it lives up to even half it's promise it could solve a lot of issues with this phones up time.

    Thanks guys and remember there is nothing we can't figure out on this phone as long as we communicate.


    ***P.S. I ordered the ebay battery and it looks like a lot of you did as well. For parity sake did anyone order the batterybay, laz818's spaz love child, one?
