Is there not a common law principle that a newly purchased item must be suitable for its intended purpose? A battery that gives only fifteen minutes or so of talk time is not,
in my estimation, anywhere near being suitable, as these batteries normally give two hours of talk time.
I am e-mailing my family and friends to warn them about this crappy Circuit City policy. Needless to say, they won't EVER see my business in the future!
If the dollar value wasn't so small, I would be tempted to launch a small claims action to recover this sum. By the way, I found a more powerful lithium-ion battery to fit this phone at Best Buy.
I see from other complaints on this site that Circuit City doesn't exactly have a stellar reputation among consumers or State attorneys General. Wish I'd known that before they palmed off this dud battery onto me.
Avoid these stores like you'd avoid the plague!
