    I think some of us figure out these batteries sucked a long time ago, way before phones started melting...

    I bought a Phantom in Oct. of last year, little more than a year ago. I had about an hour continuous minutes of talk. I figured this was normal, being a cell newbie. However, once the battery started dying even further down, and my phone just quit after about 40 minutes or so, I took it back to the store.

    They put me through multiple CRAPPY replacement phones, despite my contract stating that my replacement phone, if ever needed would be worth the same $ or greater than my original phone. Despite it being a battery issue, they sent the WHOLE PHONE.

    To make a long story short, I called their corparate office and threatned to picket in front of their store if they didn't get my phone or a decent replacement back. Later that afternoon, I picked up my "new" KX414. The battery is a CV90-K3040-15, so I assume it's all good, as I havn't had any problems with it, other than dropping calls which is Verizon's fault...

    So what happens if I sign up for the battery? Get a freebie?

    has anyone noticed the stand by time dramatically decreased with the new replacement battery?

    I should have kept my recall battery!!!

    My standby times have gone from 3 days, to less than 8 hours.

    Now I have to convince Kyocera that its a battery problem. good luck!

    I have one of the counterfeit batteries.

    Kinda sad that it's the best cell batter I've ever owned.

    Last night I was talking on my Kyocera Blade, and for some reason it just suddenly turned itself off.

    Pressing power would not turn it back on, so I removed the battery.

    After inspecting the battery, it seems almost like it had slightly swollen and had a belly on both sides as opposed to being flat.

    I'm not sure if it was like this since the first day I got it or not, but it doesn't seem normal.

    It's an aftermarket battery from eBay, but I'm wondering if maybe this swelling is the start of the same problem Kyocera had with their brand batteries exploding.

    After reporting to Kyocera that I had one of their faulty batteries, I just got mine in the mail yesterday after one month.
    When inspecting the serial number on the battery....I noticed that it had the EXACT serial number on my recalled battery! :CV90-L349T-01

    I also noticed that the old battery was starting to 'bow' a bit in the middle.

    The replacement battery seems to be doing as good as a job as the old......the only difference is it does'nt heat up when charging like the old one. This of course is a good thing.

    That isn't a serial number, it is a product code.

    O......K...... that makes sense. But are they still supposed to have the same product codes?
