Battery for Int'l and AT&T version - can I use one with the other?
I have not seen the seller selling the original battery for the Int'l version of the Note (N7000), however there are some that sell original battery for the AT&T version. However, they noted that the AT&T version is not compatible
with the Int'l version.
I am thinking that the AT&T version can be used for the Int'l version, so I emailed on of the seller and their response is:
Both the international Note and the US version of the Note are constructed a
bit differently. The battery for the international version is different
than the battery for the US version. Not sure if it is to accommodate the
voltage difference of the wall chargers but I hear from the customers that
the batteries are different and not interchangable. The Note battery we
sell is for the U.S. ATT Note SGH-i717 only and will not work on the Samsung
So it seems that there is an issue with charging the battery, judging by what this seller's customer reported? Can anyone provide insight on this?
My goal is to buy ORIGINAL Samsung battery, so I don't have to deal with quality or incompatibility issue and ended up damaging my Int'l Note, which have NO Samsung US warranty. If the AT&T version can be used in my Int'l version, I can buy one from an AT&T store!
NOTE: I used to have a Nokia phone a while back and I use 3rd party battery (non Nokia battery) and it damaged my phone, so I don't want to go through the same thing again.
