Samsung u740 Extended Battery

This isn't so much about the battery, but the utterly horrible customer service of the local Verizon Wireless store. It took them two weeks to order it, for some reason, and they ordered the regular battery for me.

I called their national number and had the correct battery ordered right away, it was even FedEx delivered to me.

The battery life in this u740 is my only gripe. The phone itself is the size of the LG 8600 or RAZR and you can tell they obviously had to cut the size of the battery for the form factor.

Unlike other extended batteries I have had for my cell phone, this one comes with a nice cover that extends the entire length of the phone, so you don't have the battery jutting out in the back.

Going from 800 mAh (the standard battery) to 1300 mAh is a huge improvement. I play games on my phone (big surprise there) and with the normal battery Vijay Golf would just kill my phone.

Now I do not have to charge my phone in the middle of the day. So what is the lesson here? Don't go to the local Verizon Wireless store. Just call the national number and you will avoid weeks of irritation.
