Default Where to get batteries in Canada?!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi Everyone,

It's simple. I've got a Curve 8900 with a completely dead battery and I need to replace it.

I've gone online and found two stores. BUT One requires a fedex account number because the company doesn't ship outside of the US without it.

The other one wanted $31 for shipping!

I just need to find somewhere to buy batteries that has reasonable shipping pricing and doesn't require you to have a shipping account with a company.

I'd buy directly from RIM but the battery is $80.

Take it back and ask you retail store to replace the battery since the 8900 has not been out thay long. Most likely they will give you a new one.

What a surprising thread. The OP is in Waterloo, Ontario. Also of note in Waterloo, Ontario, the headquarters of Research in Motion.

Yeah, it's not a retail location, but you'd think finding their products nearby would be pretty expected.
