I have an additional 8700g that was given to me by a coworker because the moisture dot was red and he thought it was useless. It works just fine with no problems. I have that in addition to the 8700g that I originially purchased. If I were you, I'd keep the BB that you have and purchase a battery from one of the vendors such as Seidioonline.com
or some of the other vendors that you see listed here on the forums.
Hope this helps!
Hey, thanks for responding. I am going to keep the BB. What I expect though, based on past experience with my phone, is if there are any issues down the line that have nothing to do with 'water damage' the service tech will write everything off to that little red line and look no further.
