In other words, are the dimensions pretty much the same for all the 8700s? If that's the case, I don't care what color the door is for the longer life battery as long as it actually functions. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
W8RZ, just like InPocket linked, if you look at the two and see the comparison, you can probably use the 8700g's battery and maybe the door on the 8703e's and go from there. Though you may just want to hold on till Verizon will offer it. Rim hasn't even have the extended batteries or any other accessories (or for that matter, a link to the 8703e on their shopping site) to get it. If you want to take the risk and let us know if it works, then let us know, cuz im curious if it would, if it does, i'd buy one too! Just make sure you get the right door, i've read some people accidently bought other 8700' model extended batteries, and have ended up returning them because some are different (i.e. 8700c) and so fourth.
