    I bit the bullet yesterday and ordered my 830 from AT&T on a 12-month Next contract (figured that'd hold me over until what better be a monster Holiday 2015 from Microsoft!) It doesn't have everything I want, but one of the features that excited me was the user-replaceable battery. I'm always on the road, so being able to pop in a spare battery is an attractive feature.

    I haven't seen AT&T or Microsoft advertise spare batteries for sale, and I can't even find them on eBay. Anyone have any idea on where I could buy an extra battery? Also, any current 830 owners out there who could tell me the model number of the battery it takes?

    Looks like they don't have it yet either. But thanks for the tip, I'll keep my eye on that site.

    This appears not to be the correct one.
    The specs on the 830 call out a different battery and my 830 also does not have that battery in it.

    After contacting Lumia@help on Twitter, Microsoft Mobile and Nokia USA, ALL say it's not available in USA because it's too new.
    30 minutes chatting with ATT they still insist that the BL-5J will work ...
    "why would we be selling it if it didn't? "
    'cause dumb *rses that's why.

    The BL-5J fits my old Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and it's 1430mAh The only battery that fits in and works for the 830 is the BV-L4A

    Here are many ( the few & most of ) of the places you can buy the BV-L4A on the planet, none in USA
