I have recently purchased a couple of replacement C-S2 batteries for my Blackberry Curve 8310. The ones which I have received are different to the original one (although being sold as Genuine Blackberry) as they have smooth labels on them (the original one is textured) and when they are inserted the "Invalid battery" sign comes on the display. I have purchased these from a reputable dealer with an Ebay store and if they are fake woulod nlike to report them as selling fake goods. Is there any definitive way to rell if a battery is a Genuine Blackberry battery?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

today i bought one of these batteries for my 8310 and straight away i saw that it was a slightly darker shade than the origional. then when i felt it i could feel it was smooth where the origional was textured. when i inserted the battery and plugged it in to charge an image came on the screen of a battery with a red line through it. at first i thought it just ment low battery but after hours of it being on charge it is still the same. i think these slightly darker and smoothe batteries are fake and do not work in blackberrys. - post if you know any more
