Replacement Battery for Curve 9360

Hello All,

 

I have purchased a replacement battery for a colleague's device; I purchased it cheaply from a well-known online auction site. It has arrived and I am a little bit suspicious of it. The Battery is covered by a sticky label and the Hologram does not look genuine. Furthermore, it has come with a very poor qulaity looking caddy with two housings, one of which says "original battery" and the other says "aftermarket battery", then there are some very poorly written instructions on the back of the caddy about how to activate it. Is there a way to check whether the serial nmber on the battery is authentic? Also, if this proves to be a fake where is the best place to buy OEM batteries?

Please use plain text.

Re: Replacement Battery for Curve 9360

I don't know how to check a battery serial number, sorry.

 

My advice would be, if it works good. If not return. I've bought OEM batteries on the past myself off eBay.

Also, look at Amazon for good prices.

Re: Replacement Battery for Curve 9360

Ok I will try it. My main worry is that if it is a fake the device will stop working altogether, which from what little research I have done seems to be the case with some other people. I only bought this because it was cheap (£11.99) but perhaps it was a false economy :smileyhappy:

Well, you can always return it, of course.

True but my boss will be decidedly unimpressed if I break his phone and has to go without it for any length of time.

Re: Replacement Battery for Curve 9360

Do I need to do something to activate the new battery? When I put it in the phone it just comes up with a battery with a red line through it
