If any of you are in the market for batteries for your cell phone — especially "proprietary" types, you've got to check out The Cell Lounge at Buy.com .

Quick story ...

Went to AT&T store (what DO they do in those stores?). Cellphone battery won't hold a charge. "No problem, you're under warranty, blah-blah-blah"

Call service number ...nope you're not under warranty, call LG who make the battery.

Call LG ... $49.95 for battery. This is for a Lithium Ion 3.7V 1000mAH battery (LGIP-520A) ... $50?!? Forget it.

Go online, and find THESE folks. $10 with shipping. EXACT — and I mean exact — same battery.
