    Hemorrhoids, I ordered mine from VZW, at the same time I purchased the TB. Before even knowing about the extended battery. I do think the two price unit is awesome, like the soft cushy gel up against the device.

    I agree, i hate when they have 2 piece cases and the hard plastic is on the inside, as this eventually scratches/scuffs your phone up. I found a case i really like on Amazon, but unfortunately it has the hard piece inside.

    How much did you pay for the case?

    I'm going back to the Verizon store to get one of the two piece ones in a little bit. I stopped by after work and the UPS guy was dropping off boxes, and the girl there said there was some Tbolt stuff in them, but they had to process them first or something. I have to shower and change outta work stuff and head back there to pick it up. Hopefully they actually will have the nice ones and my decision will have to be between the red/black or blue/black one.

    Then it's time for the dremel again.

    Alright, just finished cutting another one up... Thank god I get a healthy discount at Verizon for everything I get lol.... The fitment of the pieces on my phone with a normal battery cover installed wasn't exactly Otterbox quality, but it was passable. Cutting it apart did really no measurable amount of change to the case whatsoever. Fitment around buttons and ports is still the same, just I have a big 'ol donkey battery hanging out of the back of it.

    Hey manufacturers... gonna pick up on doing this? I've already dropped close to $50 bucks on cases I'm just cutting apart... who wants my money for a real case that'll take some abuse and fit right with the 2750mAh battery installed?

    Onto the pics...

    Mike based on tour suggestion I went out and bought my first dremmel and went to work. It's not the clearest cut but it gets the job done. Now all I have to do is get the tingling out of my right hand.

    Good stuff!

    All you gotta do is go slow and take your time. Don't try to remove all the material in one shot, remove it bit by bit and keep fitting and trimming as you go.
