    Those iPhone people have fun cases and other accessories!!! Where/when can Droid Bionic users get a hard case (not those skinit things, they don't protect if I drop my phone) that we can customize with photo or design?
    I got a fun one from a kiosk at the mall, but it would be nice to browse a big selection or create my own.
    Cafe press and coveroo don't have bionics...
    Any thoughts?

    Take it from a poor fool who searched high and low for frickin "fun" phone cases this christmas. the kiosk's at the mall are your best bet unless you live in so cal. i found these places here in a couple diff malls called "phone candy". they are insane. Walls of sparkly stuff. You'd be in heaven. Plus everything else you can think of. Sports, anime, etc.

    I myself have the wireless charging back on mine so no case fits it now. I put one of the armor skins on. When I had the stock battery door on I used a clear tpu case but it did add a lot of bulk to the phone. I like it more with the wireless door and the skin than anything else so far. But the tpu car did save it from a bad drop once, like a five foot to asphalt drop, and took zero damage. Boy was I relieved and much more careful now.

    Same question here...got the Verizon stock plastic case and "holster" which keeps loosing the phone. Have new back cover with extended Verizon battery. What else is out there as this poor phone is getting beat up when it drops?

    I'm a big fan of Diztronic TPU cases (thermoplastic polyurethane). They also make them for the extended battery.

    Normal version

    Extended battery version

    These are the matte black type but they come in other colors as well.

    Does this protect the phone or is it just a better case?

    Not sure what you mean. It looks like it is a case for the phone but there is also an extended battery version of the case.

    The Diztronics provide some protection against drops and scratches, especially around the edges and corners which tend to scratch easily. They don't protect the screen directly (although the raised edge will prevent it from making contact with a horizontal surface if dropped) and they are not as sturdy as an Otterbox, but they are much lighter and thinner. It's a trade-off. Probably about the same level of protection as the rubberized case VZW sells, only it's a much tighter fit and the material feels better in the hand (my opinion of course).

    Thanks, The current cover for the extended battery doesn't offer any protection and it seems this cover does offer some protection. So it would be worth buying then.

    Are you talking about the battery door that comes with the extended battery? That is not a case, it's just a replacement door. The Diztronic case for extended battery that I linked above fits over the battery door.

    Apologizes for my lack of term knowledge. yes I'm looking for something that would cover / go over the extended battery door for extra protection.

    No problem, just making sure we're talking about the same thing. I would definitely recommend the extended battery version of the Diztronic in that case. It will give you some added protection.

    +1 for the extended battery ditztronic cover. That's what I use and it fits like a glove and most people don't even notice I have one on. Phone is much easier to hold on to and easily allows phone to fit in all the moto docks!

    Cruzer lite makes a real nice cover too but only for standard battery. Have it in my wifes phone and it fits just as well
