No idea here. Normal Batteries have always worked for me.
I contact Rim and asked if there was potentially an exteded battery and back coming for the 8703e.
Their response was "since we are a public company we can not release any information like this"
anyone heard anything?
I go through two batteries a day. I had the extended for the 7520 and it was perfect for a day.
I need an extended bad, i live on my phone.....
2 batteries a day??? That's some heavy use! Just wondering...what all are you doing daily?
The 8703e seems to go through the battery faster than the 8700c/g. Seems to be the CDMA hardware best I can tell, since I've seen the same thing happen with the 7250 vs 7290.
As for an extended battery, if they make one for the 8700g it should workf fine on the 8703e (albeit not color matched), as they share the same style battery cover.
It doesn't record video. Get over it.
Off subject but I cant imagine what your data usage, phone usage, etc... are like. I can get two or more days on my 8703e and I use it non stop for data, not phone.
jfruhling, Welcome to PinStack.
It usually takes a while before the extended Batteries/Covers are available. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.
