For Shadow users that have been getting poor performance from their batteries, some relief has finally come. Starting on July 28th, T-mobile plans to offer new batteries to Shadow users, free of charge, upon request. All you have to do is call in to Customer Care and request an extended battery for your Shadow. The catch? The new battery is larger, and requires a new back cover which creates a “hump” on the back of the phone. As stores go though their inventory of Shadows, they will also begin to be replaces by the new Shadow Hump with the extended battery life. No warranty required for the new battery, however you must be an existing T-mobile customer, and you must request the extended battery. Keep in mind this is all happening due to customer feedback, so all those Shadow users that called in to let T-mobile know that the battery wasn’t performing as stated, it looks like your complaints payed off. Click the link below for some pictures of what the Shadow Hump will look like, but keep in mind the new battery may not be the one pictured.
