why not just use the original back with the extended battery? thats what i do and its fits in all my cases since there is no change in size
I read some people on here did it but there HAS to be a reason why verizon made a slightly bigger battery cover. They wouldn't spend all this money making this if the original cover can fit properly without the RISK of doing some damage internally.... Though believe me if there was no risk the original battery cover would be on my phone already...
You brought up a good point about trying it out at the verizon store to see if it would fit in my holster... Thanks.
It is with my phone at least. I can't guarantee that it will work for everyone, because some people report some fitment issues with the hg silicone cover while mine fits on my phone 100% fine. The clear plastic case and the platinum case also fit good with my phone and slide well with that holster. The shell/holster is the best 20 bucks i spent at verizon, because it can hold my phone with almost any of the numerous cases i have purchased. i believe you said you already have that holster, i recommend trying it out with any other cases. if the silicone turns out to not fit perfectly for you, try some of the hard covers, you could always test them out in the VZ store before purchasing (they always let me no problems). Just a simple recommendation! I have the clip holster that comes with the platinum case that works with lots of the other cases, but my favorite holster is def the slide one that comes with the combo[/QUOTE]
A kludge was to remove the extended battery cover and put the shell back on without it. Sans battery cover, the shell covered DX slides back into the holster smoothly, as intended.
Been keeping a close watch to see if there is a downside, but the case pretty well seals the back and unless heat or dirt become an issue ...
We'll see ...
As with the regular case that comes with VZW's case/holster combo, and without the battery cover on, the hg case works fine in the holster ... just a tad tighter than the regular case, but without a struggle to get the phone out.
I decided to keep the hg silicone cover because it does provide a much better seal, and offers more protection from dust to the battery compartment when running without a battery cover.
Until other cases for the Dx running with an extended battery come out, this is the best solution for me using the holster I prefer ... YMMV
Thanks for the post.. Just to be sure what you wrote,
1) You are using the silicone case WITHOUT the extended battery cover
2) And because of what I just said, you can fit your phone in the verizon holster because of this? (with silicone cover on phone).
