Sprint appears to be giving free extended batteries to new and existing Galaxy Nexus users on 8/19.

Anyone know the size of the battery? 2100mAh?

 

That is correct. A little bit more will make a small, but noticeable difference, in my opinion.

I am going to call Telesales Sunday morning.

This is good because i was considering buying the battery and Verizon branded cover from Amazon. We all know that would have just looked wrong!

I think this is fake. Where is the URL?They don't even have extended battery for sprint nexus.

 

It said it is offered through telesales, not via the web. It can't hurt to call Sprint Telesales: 1-866-866-7509 and ask about it on Sunday.

I think the deal is it goes on sale Sunday and the first lot is free. At least that's what it sounds like.

Online ordering sticks me in a loop when I try to use the discount code. Guess I will have to call in the morning.

I got the same thing. Sent me into a Causality Loop. :(

I called Telesales and ordered one. Just paid tax and shipping.

Shipping is 2-5 days and I have already received the confirmation e-mail.

 

I guess the call to Telesales is the way to go.

Good luck.

Just got off the phone with telesales, my order went through just fine. I should be getting it on tuesday. Again, thank you Ben for the heads up.

 

Also:

Called telesales. Said only for new customers. Wouldn't let me order one without ordering phone.

 

This is not true, if you already have a galaxy nexus on your sprint account you qualify as well so I suggest you call back.

Thanks for the head up. Just ordered the battery online. $6.50 for shipping plus state sales tax. Nice!

I got this after my 3rd call.

However, how did you get for $6.50 shipping? They also charged me $14.00 goofy1.

I just ordered mine through telesales. They asked how long ago i bought my nexus and i said on launch day :P . I got mine for 12.95 SH plus tax. BTW the shipping difference is 6.50 for ground and 12.95 for overnight.

Overnight shipping doesn't mean it shows up overnight. Sprint quotes 2-5 business days from order with overnight shipping.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
