A sales only store is unlikely to have any batteries on hand, we hoard a ton of new and used ones at my store, but we're a repair store...we're always getting folks coming from sales only stores for batteries.

Yeah even when i'm in a crappy service area I still get at least 12 hours of medium use, with at least 2 hours of screen on time. I'm using the stock ROM as well. I have 2 email accounts on push. And don't use wifi

Just tell them you're in a hurry and don't have time. They just gave me a new one and then I was on my way...

Excellent news, glad it worked out. Where did you end up getting your battery? And if you don't mind me asking, how much did it set you back?

Apps like Facebook would drain my battery really fast. I use friendcaster now. Also make sure your not using the wireless location in the gps setting.

Wtf?! You've had the phone for less than a week and they made you PAY for a replacement? That's f'ed up! If the repair center wanted to charge you, I'd leave there, go back home and get all the **** that you got with the phone. Next I'd go back to the retail store and heavily suggest they give me a new replacement because this phone is not working correctly. If they give you grief then bluff them and tell them you want to return the phone (its still within the initial return period) and cancel your service because I'll be damned if I have to pay for a replacement part that was faulty and the phone is days old. You can also say that you'll report on the survey your story and give all failing marks.

Sorry if I sound like a dick but that's complete bull**** that they would make you pay for a replacement battery when the original is bad and the phone is less than a week old. Insurance or not, you shouldn't have to pay for it. Also don't let them try to pass the buck and tell you to send it into Samsung. I would tell the agent that I understand it personally isn't their fault, but you would greatly appreciate it if they work with you on this and get you a swap out replacement at no charge. You don't want anything extra, just a new working battery to replace faulty one.
