    Ok I have never been a big case guy but since I am obsessed with my Di I am leaning that way. What is the best protection combo that adds minimal bulk? I have purchased a cheap silicone case and the Seidio Innocase II. Any other nice cases?

    The Verizon Speck case is nice. I bought that not too long ago and I really like it as it is one piece and gives the phone a nice feel to it without adding too much bulk to it.

    I found the best to be no case at all....Tried a few at first, but they all added too much bulk.

    not sure if its the verizon speck case, but i got mine at verizon store. its a black rubbery one. fits really nicely w/o too much added bulk. its got a kind of diamond appearance on the back side. they make one for the droid X too. got one of each for my incred and wife's x. mine fits perfectly inside a holster from vzw also. got the droid eris holsters on clearance for $5 each. sales guy said they didnt realize the incred fit into the holster... perfet fit and i picked up 3 just in case. so far no issues with the rubber like case though. dropped once and phone survived w/o so much as a hiccup or scratch.

    I use the shiny silicone case available from Verizon (mine is red, but it also comes in purple and in black), and while I does add a little bit of "bulk", I've found that the protection is worth it. My son uses the Body Glove case, or at least I bought him one, but I very seldom see him using it!

    I have settled on the Seidio Innocase as well. It is well made and adds minimal bulk. I tried a Rocketfish hard case from Best Buy for about 5 minutes and it broke!!! what a POS!!!!!! Stay away from any Rocketfish Hard cases...... Seidio is far superior!

    Just go this one today and seems nice. My main reason for a case is to protect the protruding camera. Does this cover the lens? It is very thin and adds no bulk at all which I like.

    It's very close and it looks like it might be slightly higher then the lens but I'm not positive - However it is a great case IMO :gotmyvote:

    I also like the look and feel of the phone naked too much to put a case on it; I opted for a slide in case instead.

    Sena Cases - Designer Leather Cases : HTC-Droid Incredible-UltraSlim

    If you are looking for something like this, I would highly recommend it. The leather is extremely nice quality and backed with a micro-felt material. I took a few pictures of it with the phone in it, but havent gotten around to writing a review yet.

    $29.99?!?!?! I bought a leather slide in case from Amazon made by Cellet for less than $5. It is in similiar design and it is genuine leather.

    I will buy an Otterbox defender series case as soon as they are available. I'm a bit disappointed it won't work with my HTC 2150 battery packs.

    In out due to extra thick battery BUT the defender on my Omnia is, well, Incredible. It saved my phone from numerous drops in the snow and I got some pretty cool shots* under water* on my Omnia with it on this summer
    ** disclaimer;I accept no responsibility if you try this and your phone ends up water damaged

    Another vote for the Speck case.. The only problems with it is the shiney finish scratches really easy and with my ocd it bugs me. Also the "bright" neon ruberized edge wears quik and is always dirty. I clean mine everyother day. The best part is when I whip it out girls love it. I get compliments on the case all the time.

    I believe it is a case made for Verizon (no manufacturers name on it) as I've found it in the local Verizon Stores for $29.99

    I like Verizon's Silicon Case:

    Verizon Wireless - High Gloss Silicone Protective Cover

    Doesn't add too much bulk, basically levels out the back with the camera lens and the front border prevents the screen from touching the surface when laying face down. Most importantly it adds decent drop protection. Got mine for ~$13 after corp. discount.
