Battery compatible with SPH-m610?

by amper    Jun 15, 2007, 10:01 AM

I've got an m610, which I'm mostly happy with, but I'm seriously thinking of switching to AT&T to get an iPhone.

What I'd like to do is open an AT&T account and get an SGH-a717 to start, then pick up an iPhone when it's released, but I don't want to lose all the money I've invested in accessories. In particular, I'd love to be able to use my m610 battery in the a717, and vice-versa (the m610 would probably remain in use, since we maintain two different provider accounts).

The m610's biggest failing is its short battery life. I'm much more used to my SPH-i500, which came with a standard battery and a slim battery, plus a dual-charging sync cradle. I never even bothered getting the "extended" battery for it, because I always have one fully-charged battery ready to go in the cradle. It's just a swap and go operation.

The m610 has to be constantly tethered to a power cord in order to keep the battery topped off. I use Bluetooth all the time, which doesn't help.

Can anybody tell me the part number of the battery in the a717?
