    Anyone know of a cheap cover-not silicone-that will work with the extended battery and cover? I won't use the stock battery cover or leave it off. Thanks.

    I made a post asking this same thing. I'm with you. I want to use the extended OEM VZW battery with extended door. Seidio Innocase Surface case does NOT fit. Covers popping off and rainbow effect on the screen, despite what people say. I hope we find the answer. I'll keep looking.

    No one has tried an eBay case or similar with the extended bat?

    Well any case will fit the extended battery without a door. I am looking for a case that fits with the proper extended door.

    I just picked up an extended battery, and the case/holster combo from Verizon last night. It fits pretty good. The case doesn't slide into the holster really easily, but it works. And the case doesn't feel loose on the phone at all.

    Same here. It's VERY snug, but it does seem to fit and doesn't move around at all.

    Does it give a rainbow effect? The Seidio Innocase Surface case leaves a bit of a gap, but also gives the rainbow effect if even slight pressure is given. How's it work with the ebay case? That rainbow effect pressure from the Seidio scared me off from using it.

    No. No rainbow effect. I have seen a Rocketfish case also works with the extended battery.

    How is the rocketfish case in quality? Im looking for a case that grips my hand so I don't have to worry about it sliding out (you'd be surprised how often it happens)

    Bang for the buck verizon holster case is great! If you dont use the hoster just use the case its just as good as knockoffs and you can use the extended battery no battery plate flawlessly!

    Also the Verizon silicone case fits. This is the simi-rigid silicone for $19.99, not the thin rubber glove type on ebay.

    I'm not sure what the problem people are having with the Body Glove case and the extended battery. I have the door on AND it fits just fine with no effects on the screen.

    Update-ordered a Rocketfish case rf-wr7000 and it DOES NOT fit. It looks just like the case in the video, but no dice-too tight. Again, the cheap rubberized case from ebay does fit and it about the same quality as the Rocketcrap I mean Rocketfish.

    +1 but look around, I got that & a few other colors for $3 ea & combined shipping - the back is ever so slightly raised as to accommodate an extended bat, which I am presently using, tho I had no trouble using the original door.

    *as a side note, check your bat doors. I distinctly remember my first dx having some sort of padding on the inside of the door. When i got my replacement a few months back (speaker issue), the new version had a bare metal door. (fits extended bat easier)

    Does anyone know how to find the case that's just like the ebay one listed? There seem to be many different generic rubber cases and I'd prefer one that isn't snug with the extended battery door
