Default When should I replace my 8800's battery?

Please Login to Remove!

I got it secondhand off of craig's list. She said she had the phone since January so the battery is about 6 months old. The life is pretty decent but not as good as my previous 8700g. Could this be that the battery is just old? Any extended batteries for it yet?

You shouldn't need a new battery after 6 months. I don't think there is an extended battery yet.
