    Does anyone have one that sits flush with the battery installed?

    I am noticing that the gap on mine is getting smaller. Maybe the plastic is bending a bit in use and it will eventually be flush...

    Still, i wish it was flush now.

    I got my battery and it works awesome. I can go forever without a charge. The one thing I've noticed though is that sometimes I'll charge my phone the entire night and when I unplug it in the morning I only show 2 bars. If I take the battery out and put it back in it'll show 3 and last just like it should.

    Anyone know what would cause that?

    Now I just pulled the battery as usual and put it back in and instead of reporting a full battery like usual it's showing 1 bar......

    I don't meant to talk down on the battery - I like the thought of having a super-duper 3200Mah battery, but that kills the phone concept of having a slim smartphone. From the looks of the new battery cover, it makes the phone look like a portable rear-projection TV. Any chance a battery like this will come in slimmer form?

    The battery is thick and I had my concerns as well. However, the phone fits in your hand a million times better with it and after only a few days of having it on there I dont think I could go back to the stock battery.

    My dilemma is, I have a standard-fit protective case for the Q, and it will BY NO MEANS stretch that far, like trying to get a horse in a pair of human Speedos. :tounge:

    IF there's a higher-capacity battery available to fit the OEM cover, I'll all over it.

    Yes it does last longer but in a way it takes away what made the Q nice. It makes it a lot thicker where most cases cant hold it and it make it really bulky if you put it in your pocket

    Are either of them available yet? I checked the website and the 2100 crystal and rubber cases with holster still says coming soon. There is no information on the 3200 cases at all. When will the 3200 case be available? Later this summer?

    itsernst, where did you find the 3200 for that cheap? I did a search on ebay and I didn't find anything for seidio.

    3200 battery is great!


    I have to disagree. It does not feel like a roll of quarters. It really is not that much heavier and it lasts for 3 days for me!! I am so happy I purchased the 3200 battery. All my frustrations about the battery issue are over. It is now actually much easier to hold on to also!

    Seriously...has anyone found ANY type of pouch that will fit the Q with the 3200 battery without having to use KY Jelly to get it in and out? I know this is asking way too much but I'd like to secure it using a clip that slides through a belt as well...and YES, I'd like fries with that! Thanks:2cool:

    A great leather holster with Leather rotaing clip for Q with 3200 battery

    I finally found something that works great! It is an all leather holster with a LEATHER rotating clip (won't snap off like the cheapo plastic ones do). It is made by foneGEAR. It is actually designed for a Blackberry but fits the Q perfectly with the 3200 battery! It is a holster, not a pouch which I like a lot better! I bought it at CompUSA for $19.99. Good luck!:2cool:

    THANK YOU! THANK YOU! I went out to foneGEAR's website and they have bunches of cases. Do you happen to have ANY model number? Thanks again, John:laugh2:

    On the foneGEAR website it is the one made for Blackberry model 00397. I got mine at the store, you can always go to one of the stores listed on the website and try it out for yourself to be sure that's the right one, but I am 1000% positive it that one for the Blackberry.
