    I am getting my droid in 2 days, I was looking to get the Body Glove case for it (I prefer a hip case pouch but I drop my phone a lot). I read in a few threads that the body glove case can scratch the phone. Can anyone confirm or deny that? Thanks!

    I read about the issues too but I wanted something asap because my last phone was scratched just from keys in my purse. I liked the bodyglove better than the hard cases that Verizon carries. I was careful snapping it on and really don't see where it would have damaged anything. I also read that it blocks the back row of keys but mine has a short edge along the keyboard side so it isn't close to the keys. The slide-out also works just fine and the whole thing feels so much safer with the wrap. I like it. I also put on VZs screen protector and think that was not as successful but I'll leave it on for now. This screen is really hard to damage and the film still gets smudgy so it doesn't help with the cleaning problem.

    With the heat that this phone can generate, I wonder about the impact of keeping it in some of these cases. As I like to carry it in my pocket, I will likely go with some sort of sleeve.

    I have noticed that the screen gets smudgy but so does the glass, that's why i kept mine on, just touching the glass i had oil from my hands show up on it, so i took a protector out immediately and put it on. (I know i didn't have to, but I just like having them on there)

    I have the Body Glove and I have no problems with it. It may add a little bit of bulk and weight, but the protection seems to be worth it. My fingers do bump a bit on the top row of keys, but for me it's no big deal. I'm also not too fond of the keyboard, and have found the screen keyboard easier in most cases.

    I've taken the case on and off a few times, and don't see any scratches to the body. Besides, once the Body Glove is on, you really have no reason to be taking it on and off unless always pulling out your battery or SD card.

    Fits nicely on my hip too.

    I wasn't sure what I wanted, but my Verizon store was very helpfull and let me try each option they had to help with my decision. I'm very happy with it.

    I also have the Verizon screen protector on it. I used all 3 to get it right and without dust. Failed on all 3 attempts so the last one stayed on as is. Very much a finger print magnet. Ghost Armour just arrived today, so that is going on next.

    I should also point out the the Body Glove is 2 pieces. If the top piece is a problem for you when typing, you can always just leave it off. The rest of the phone will still be protected and it will still be able to hook onto your belt. Plus it helps keep your battery door on!

    yeah, imo the droid shouldn't be on a thick case like that.. it needs to dissipate its heat..

    I have the body glove and don't like it at all. The top piece is too weak and flimsy for my taste. When opening and closing the keypad, the case moves over the screen. It feels real cheap. I'm taking it back and getting another media dock!

    My battery meter also shows the temp and sitting idle right now it's at 86.0º F. The highest i've noticed is 93.7º F. Seems acceptable.

    I am looking for a holster that will allow me to place my phone with the Body Glove on it into it, screen side in. Any ideas?

    Do not buy.

    The bottom part is way too bulky, the screen cover way too flimsy, and if you plan on often using the gps feature, remember that it does not fit the car mount--and it is a pain to take off.

    I have no problems taking my Body Glove case off. I do it multiple times a day for the car and multimedia docks. I don't have a scratch on the Droid from removing the case daily either. Sounds like a lot of you aren't taking it off correctly if it is causing scratches and headaches.

    what body glove, or anybody for that matter, needs to do is make a car mount thingy that you'd swap with the belt clip whenever you'd want to mount the phone in the car. it wouldn't necessarily be a complete car mount kit (though that'd be fine too) but something that could work with existing car mounts. the droid wouldn't automatically go to car mode but so what?
