    What do you guys think the best case will be? Coming from the original droid it seems it was the Otterbox, but I never used one. Im stuck between wanting/needing one and using the car dock a lot.

    I dont do cases but I did like the Body Glove for Bionic that I saw a couple weeks ago.
    Otterbox is another that I'm sure will be top quality, although theirs are usually a bit on the bulky side.

    Otterbox and Body Glove do make nice cases, although I find them both a bit bulky. The Otterbox is very big, but it does offer a lot of protection.

    The best case out of all I tried for my OG Droid was the Seidio Surface or innocase(whatever they call it now) - I don't know when they will be available though

    I post the thread "car friendly car dock". In this forum section. Check it out. My case/glove works in the cardock.

    I just picked up the $15 silicone case and it sucks. It fits so loose the bottom hole for the mic looks partially covered. I was also expecting it to have more grip than it does.

    I usually don't do cases (my OG Droid has survived since day 1 without one) but the thinness makes it hard/awkward for me to hold onto.

    If you want protection but can deal with extreme bulkiness.... get the otterbox defender. I love mine. I do a lot of fishing and outdoor stuff.... won't go without it. And its not too hard to take off when I need to use the lapdock.

    Liking the Otterbox. Bulky yes, but doesn't get in the way of the operation of the phone. Not sure if I'm gonna stay with the screen protector though since it has gorilla glass. Gorilla glass on my Xoom is still scratch free even after some intense Angry Bird sessions by 3 and 5 year old. :happy:

    When you mention otterbox, please keep in mind there are several, although most popular are the defender and commuter. I have a commuter and its great. Not on the bionic, but still. The unit is two pieces, a silcone inner shell and a harder plastic cover. It's not bulky at all. Included a clear screen protector which went on easy and you can't tell I have one on.

    The defender is the bullied one and basically protects against everything shot of dropping it in water. Should be enough for a casual spill. The screen protector is part of the unit, not an applique like the commuter is. I've seen it on other phones and it is much more bulkier

    They sure will. It comes with an insert for naked phones that you can take out for cases

    My bad...I had the Car Dock for the OG Droid. You couldn't use that one with a case.

    I had the Otterbox defender and only used it for half a day....:blink:..HUGE!!!!!:blink: Makes the damn phone look more like a tablet. If you like chucking your phone and don't mind the size, that baby will do the trick. I am now rocking the standard carbon look silicone case from the verizon store and it fits in the car dock, looks and feels awesome. I do need to push down harder to get the dock to engage the charge usb but other than that noooo problem!

    The shell/holster combo from Verizon fits with the extended battery, but does not work with the car/navigation dock. You can force it to fit in the dock, but I fear breaking something.

    I'm going with the Otterbox Defender. I work in a harsh environment and need the most protection for my phones. I had a a Defender for the Droid X2 and that thing was solid as a rock. I just need to find a decent price on one, all the sites that sell at a good discount are out of stock at the moment.

    This is what I'm looking for, a case, with kickstand, that fits the cardock. I figure I wont need to shell out $50 on $100 or a HD cradle or standard one if it has a kickstand, kill 2 birds with 1 stone..
