    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if anyone who had ordered the battery from the recall, had actually received it yet?

    thanks. :)

    I ordered mine the day of the recall and had it the next afternoon. Battery life is improved a bit.

    i just got mine last week, and i took the old one to the post office to return it, and they couldnt figure out how to put the new return label on :rofl: because there were barcodes everywhere and they didnt want to cover up any of them

    placed the oorder 30 days agoa and till haven't recieved anything. What method of shipping diid they use? I'm kind of paranoid my postal carrier left it in the Hallway and one of the klepto's in this building may have taken it.

    I got mine today.
    It says it's $143.33 if I don't send it back. :noes:
    But the reccomended ship date is 12/26/06, so I'll wait awhile and enjoy it. :embd:
