Default Fake Blackberry Battery From T-Mobile

Almost 2 years ago, we bought 4 Blackberry Pearl 8100 phones from T-Mobile. Actually, we got them free with 2 year contracts. A couple of weeks ago, I received a letter from Ascurion, T-Mobile's Warranty company, telling me the battery given as a replacement with a replacement phone was counterfeit (as was the original). WELL...so are the other 3 from the other 3 phones!!! T-Mobile never sent a notice, and refuses to replace the other batteries. We have had many problems with the phones-these batteries overheating is possibly why!
Bad Business!

More power to you if it is working for you. But it isn't advice I would endorse. Besides you don't have to pay full retail for OEM batteries, and it comes down to the risk you are taking and the expectation of reliability. I think of my blackberry like my car in this respect: When I get back to the airport at home at midnight, I want the battery to start my car. I'm not going to risk a cheap battery. It isn't worth it.
