Hi, Well after reading everyone's battery life ...i realized mine SUCKED ...so I took it to VZ and had a rep take a look at my phone ...blamed it on my apps even took the liberty of installing advance task killer (cuz that is what he has on his) and blamed my battery life on that !!! ... even after i repeatedly told him that battery was poor with no apps installed... so he said he would change my battery ... here is the dilemma .. he claims he swapped it out .. but when i was showing the phone to him ..i remember EXACTLY that my battery indicator (Battery widget ) said it was at 70% ... because he was making fun of my pink battery indicator ..so i remember ...!! anyways he did it behind the counter ( so i couldnt see) and put a battery in/ or out of a little baggy ... and putting my case back on my phone and handing it to me ... I saw my phone was on ...and assumed he turned it on for me... anyways got in the car ..and immediately got a call ...talked 5 min tops ..and as i was getting home i looked at my phone and noticed i had 70 % !!!! so now im thinking the guy to make me feel better made believe he exchanged it ...but didnt .....i say this because he didnt even ask for my tel# til he was ready to ring a case i had purchased !! BOTTOM LINE ... how much does a NEW battery come with ??
