Bell vs Sprint extended batteries unrecognized
Hey guys

I ebayed a new battery for my Bell HTC touch diamond and received it a couple days ago. I was really careful to make sure that the ad said it would fit and charge in a sprint diamond, because I know that a lot of cheap extended batteries only work in the GSM models.

Anyways to make a long story short, to my huge disappointment, it isn't recognized, and it doesn't charge. I emailed the seller, and he's telling me that these batteries only charge in a "sprint touch diamond" , and not a "htc sprint model" (whatever that means).

Underneath the battery my phone says its a MP6950.

Can anybody confirm that the sprint diamond and my bell diamond are actually different?

They should work as far as I know its the same phone. but a lot of advanced devices have a way to I guess its to prevent damage to the phone and the manufacterer will probably recommend you use only batteries approved by them. I know I looked at the fat 3x size battery for my diamond but never got it. 89 bucks was alot. The phone may actually detect that it is not a correct battery and not let it work.

Oh and I worked for sprint they call the diamond the 6950 alright too... mine is telus they call it something else I know the verizon version of the diamond is a different hardware but I have seen bell phones and my phone side by side as far as I know they are the same

I got a second "Cameron Sino" (CS-MP6950XL) sent to me, and this one doesn't charge either. I see this battery advertised on quite a few websites (aside from ebay) but none of them actually mention Bell.

Somebody help me out and tell me what I have to do to ensure compatibility with my Bell touch diamond (MP6950). (Besides paying an $80 markup on that same $15 chinese battery...).

Somebody have a Bell mobility touch diamond that actually bought an extended battery online and it worked? Please link your source!

I just bought this battery as well for a non-Sprint(Cellcom) CDMA HTC Touch Diamond 6950 phone. My phone also does not recognize the battery and will not charge the battery whether or not it is turned on. I got it for pretty cheap on eBay so I am not extremely upset. I will likely have to go back to the stock battery which doesn't last very long on this battery hungry device. If anyone has any ideas on how to get this to work on our devices, it would be greatly appreciated.
