Hey Guys Just supplying some information.

My Sensation suffered the dust under screen issue and it has been sent back for repair, in the mean time ive come back to the G1 after picking one up for $50 I used it for about 30 minutes before finding out the battery in it is stuffed.

I have managed to get a 1000mah Nokia BL-5C battery up and running in it with little modification (small plastic strip to hold battery in place as its slightly smaller.

It does not charge in the phone, im guessing this is due to Nokia's Pulse charging and not constant charging but I will be making a usb ended nokia charger which hopefully feeds the battery what it wants. I have two Nokia batterys and have just been using the old nokia for charging and swapping batteries when needed.
If the charger mod works, ill post up so photos of how ive done it all for anyone interested.
