We had originally reported on the rumor that T-Mobile was going to be sending out replacement T-Mobile G1 batteries to G1 Users.  A lot of information was unclear: how was T-Mobile going to send out all those batteries, what size will they be, will they demand we return the battery, etc. When we asked T-Mobile about it, they stated that T-Mobile does not comment on any rumor/speculation stories.

But according to a tip from one of our well-informed readers, tyler, it looks like things are beginning to take shape in regards to this replacement battery giveaway:


Just wanted to let you guys know that i just got off the phone with a tmobile supervisor who confirmed that replacement batteries are being sent out and that there was an internal memo sent around that extra batteries are being sent out free of charge and there will be no need to send back your old one! He was unable however to confirm whether or not they would be of a higher capacity or not.


We at Android Central definitely wouldn't mind an extra battery, but still hold out hope that they'll improve it to 1400 mAh or so. Stay tuned to see if this rumor comes true!

Thanks for the tip tyler!
