    That's pretty lame any one with half a brain could cut the regular silicone case to fit the extended battery.

    I was hoping for one that covered the extended battery hump as well.

    Yep, Seidio for me too. I just hope they COVER the battery instead of cutting around it. I've had my extended battery for a week now but I'm not going to pop it in till I have a case to go with it. I hope its not another month to wait.

    I see a number of potential problems with this 25 dollar piece of silicone.
    If you will notice... All the covers have an irregular cut out around the camera, I assume because there is a proximity sensor or something? This covers lacks that. Secondly, and along the same lines, all vzw cases i've seen have a 3/16 hole centered below the kickstand, this is also missing here. On the cover of have (two piece) the silicone portion actually becomes integral with the power / sleep button. This has just a cutout, I don't like it. Also as has been stated it'd does nothing that my already modified one doesn't do better.

    Did the same thing with a cheap silicone one I got from the mall, cut it out and looks the same, they really need to hurry up production for us on these extended battery cases....I've bought a few good quality hard cases and tried cutting them with a dremel saw and the pressure bent the clips that connect the top to the bottom which made the case useless after I cut it...

    You shouldnt need to press hard at all with the dremel. It should cut through the case like a hot knife through butter.

    any eta on the Seidio extended cases...too paranoid to use my phone without one (sans insurance)....maybe i should just get a slim for now and not use the extended battery till they release the case for it.
