    Case that works with extended battery

    I looked and did not see a thread dedicated to this so I thought it would be a nice addition. I just got my extended battery in the mail today and am having a tough time deciding what to do as far as a case goes. ( The extended battery I am talking about is the one from verizon wireless BH6X)

    Some people are saying you can use the regular battery cover and still use your same case but it is obvious you shouldn't do that or they wouldn't make a different cover for the extended battery.

    If anyone has came up with any good solutions or fits please post pics or lincs.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Glossy silicon case found at Verizon stores will work though it doesn't fit perfectly. But it stretches. Best thing to do is take your phone in and try it out. They're pretty good about that. I would guess the regular silicon non Glossy case would work too. Hard cases are a problem.

    I am using leather snap on with kickstand from Verizon with the extended battery and proper cover with no issues.

    Is this a 'fine fit?'



    See the gap underneath the power plug? Ain't suppose to be there. This battery pulls the case down, nearly touching the top of the connector and distorts this entire opening.

    This is harder to see.....



    The case nearly touches the shield on the far left, in the middle it bows out and doesn't even cover the edge of the phone.

    ....and this is a stretchy silicon case.

    The Seidio Innocase Surface works perfect. It works with the extended battery door (which is only + 1mm thick).

    Case selection for this phone sucks! How is all that crap out for iphone 4 but we have nothing? Maybe seidio or otterbox will release their stuff soon and we can find out for sure if thy will work with the extended battery. It's amazing how much difference that 1-2mm makes!

    I use this case with the extended battery and it fits just fine. Better than the Amzer gel case.
