Cool but where to buy the spare battery?

Thanks

Nice, detailed guide. In fact so detailed, I do not trust myself making this repair. Does anyone offer this as a service (for a fee)?

OEM is the Motorola EX34, all over Ebay for $12-20

This doesn't address the antenna stuck on (but separate) from the battery. It's easy enough to see in the pictures, but it doesn't come off easily in one piece. I think mine still works, but definitely needs addressing.

Yes - getting the antenna off is a bear. I - well, my cell-phone guy - didn't bother because I don't use NFC for anything, so I hope that was okay!
