I carry the phone in my pocket. While the phone doesn't feel particularly bulky or uncomfortable, I have had problems with the battery hatch coming lose when I take the phone out of my pocket. This was a replacement hatch, BTW.
ok,... it's a masculine phone,.. or so they say,... it's a robot,.. not a princess,.. but my phone doesn't fit well in my pants pockets. Guess it depends on the size of your pockets. I have a hard acrylic case,.... it has pros and cons as well as the holster. The Droid is usually carried around all day by me, as I am a droid-oholic can't put it down . If not in my hands,.. it's in my purse tumbling around.
Have heard of some generic cases that have a magnetic closure which is cool because it activates the dock modes of your phone.
I'm leaning toward a body glove now,.. unless I run across one of these magnetic generic cases.

All the cases I found were similar to the body glove in style. I carry my droid in my front pocket without much issue. No more uncomfortable than my HTC Kaiser was. The one issue I do have with it is partial opening. I think it's worse because of the case, and the fact that the case is so tacky. But the trade off is that I no longer worry about dropping it, or it sliding off the leather seat in my car, like it did a couple times the first week I had the phone.
I try and make sure there is no change or keys in the pocket with the phone. Not worried about scratches like I was with the Kaiser, but impact can crack it pretty easy.
Has anyone had problems with dust/particles showing up underneath the screen? I have been carrying it in my pocket for about a month now without a case or a screen protector and I have a grouping of dust particles underneath the screen... I don't think I can get them out and I want to know if there is any way to prevent it from happening more. Thanks.
droid front left, keys/wallet/misc front right. completely nekkid, no problems or scratches.

I am waiting for my droid but from my past phone experience, leather case and in your pock without a body shield will scuff up your phone. Did that with my windows mobile phone, Iphone, and Palm. with the Iphone i got one of those $30 leather case, a few weeks later the back was all scuff up, gloss finish was dull, and the black finish went down almost to base. I had on just a screen protector and that help. but then again im not one of those who baby my equipment.
