    I just ordered a Seidio Innocase Rugged Holster Combo for my Thunderbolt off of the HTC Depot website with a 20% discount coupon code that I googled :p Saved me almost 10 bucks! The coupon code is: co20

    Enjoy fellas!

    Good looking out! Is this a hard plastic case? I dropped my TB 2x already-once cracking the corner on concrete and I'm thinking this case won't absorb the shock of a similar drop? What do you think? I just got the TPS one from the link posted on this thread, and it will cushion it a bit (price dropped $1 to $5.90+shipping).
    FYI, I googled the Innocase Rugged and I see that It's listed as low as $25 delivered.

    Last week I was taking my TB out of my shirt pocket and it slipped out of my hand and onto the asphalt driveway. The only damage was the lower right corner of the phone. I was amazed how dinged it got and I had to smooth it out. Unless you're looking for the damage now, I doubt you'd see it. However, for $5.90 with free shipping, this looks like a bargain. I'm guessing I'll have to take it out of the case whenever I put it on the car mount though, unless you know the answer for sure. Thanks for the link to this eBay item. I should have mine next Wednesday.

    Yeah, me too! But mine got tossed out of my jacket pocket! LOL!
    Anyway this TPU case is terrific! It's easy to take on and off for battery swaps, with precision cut for the ports and features, even a cushion for the power button so it's even easier to press than naked. It is slim enough to fit in my generic EVO car mount-no problem. Price is right too!
    I'm still hoping to hear from the Seidio Innocase Rugged guys! Besides the drop protection, will it fit in the car mount?
    off-topic-> check out the 1700 battery thread in accessories. So far they are great replacements for the stock battery and are marked "HTC Touch 4G/Merge".

    The Seidio Rugged has 3 layers of protection so i'm sure it will just sneeze at a 3-4ft drop :)

    If you found it for 25 shipped then jump on it, just hope it's not a knock-off.

    My bad, it was for the EVO. Is this the same? I don't see a screen protector listed:

    Seidio HTC Thunderbolt Innocase Rugged Holster Combo

    I also didn't see where to put in the discount code on the HTC Depot checkout. Thanks!

    Well, for the under $6 price - shipped I couldn't refuse that. Plus the guy has a 100% rating, that was enough to twist my arm. Thanks again for pointing it out for me. I've always had naked phones, and my D1 and D2 were naked but they never got so damaged when dropping to the ground like the TB did. And, since you say it's so easy to remove, it won't be a big deal then when putting it on the window mount.

    The D1 and D2 has metal cases, HTC phones all have plastic cases.

    I got the white, had it for about 3-4 weeks or more now. Love it, makes the volume button not so touchy and the power button a breeze after break in. Still haven't dropped my phone yet though. But this is a high quality case and sexy as hell :)
