Default Changing the battery?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking to get a secondary battery for my wife's Pearl. It tends to help when she forgets to recharge her battery (often) and needs to get out quickly with a working phone, she can just replace the battery and get going, in the meantime we can let the other battery recharge in an universal recharger.

Anyways, I was checking into some batteries on Ebay, and came across one which comes with an accessory called a "code duplicate clamp". It's apparently there to transfer the code from one battery to another. Why is this needed? I got a Blackberry Bold myself, and I didn't have to do anything nearly so complicated to replace its battery. Is this something for very specific-market Peals only? Here's an ad that I saw this mentioned in:

tinyurl.com/6khruat

Sorry, I'm not allowed to post full URLs yet, so I had to use this roundabout method.

Save yourself the aggravation and buy a legitimate OEM battery from a legitimate store. Not eBay.

IMHO, it i best to go with an OEM battery and not a cheap eBay knock off. You are never sue of the quality and compatibility with them. They are cheaper however.

Thanks, but has anyone heard of having to code a battery before?

The only thing I have read resembling what you speak of was in the following thread.

I do NOT know the legitimacy of the data provided within.

Thanks, looks like it's the same issue as what I'm discussing here.

I've bought spare aftermarket batteries for my Bold 9700, but never had to go through this procedure on that one. The battery just worked.
