I like it, but my Droid would sink with that thing if dropped in water. FAIL.
Well I didn't realize I'd have to drill the thing, it's out for me then. I find it amazing how difficult it is to find something as simple as a case which works well with this phone with all it's popularity.
Maybe I'll email Seidio and see if their cases finally fit. This is really beginning to be an annoyance of sorts.
yeah I am in the same boat...waiting to see if Seidio will finally have the fitting problems sorted. Also waiting to see what else may be available.
So in the meantime I ordered one of these...
PDair Leather Case for Motorola Milestone A855 - Vertical Pouch Type (Black) by PDair - PDair.com
I like the style and the fact that it's got some padding in case it falls. Seems like the only thing so far that I will be happy with. Still waiting on "that" case if it ever does come
I like the look of the case, but does anyone know if the metal cases interfer with the phone reception? I had one of these for a phone a few years ago and it really messed up the signal.
I had a bad experience with the Monaco aluminum case when I purchased it for my blackberry. It was a good idea in theory, but to make a long story short I go into three major flaws I found with it.
1. I had it for the Storm and you could not use the touch screen through the screen protector, you had to open the door regardless. Did not say that on the website.
2. The latch that held the door closed was never really secure. My Storm fell out about 3 times in the two days that I tried to use it. Once was real bad because the case was on my belt and I bumped into my desk, which opened the latch and send my storm sliding across the room on a wood floor.
3. When I wanted to return the case after only two days. They initially refused to give me my money back. After explaining to them why I was returning it, they said they can only give me some of my money back. I think at the time it was 49.99 and they gave me 19.99 back and I had to pay for the return shipping. I'm not the fighting with customer service type so I guess I just got screwed with that, but just thought I'd give a fair warning.
It was about a year ago, maybe a little over, so maybe they improved their product and CS by now.
I have one of these ordered, sorry to hear about the flaws and experience. If this thing isn;t very strong, I'll return it or just scrap it, but maybe it'll be better in terms of the latch staying closed.
I find it annoying that people can't find a good metal or highly protective case for this thing, either they are cheap plastic snap ons or ill fitting rubber etc.
I also have a leather top case on order to use when I'm not at work. as long as this case can save the phone from hard drops and stay closed I'm fine.
