    Verizon Universal Holster

    The universal holster sold in the Verizon store near me worked fine. The store did not have any of the holster/shell combos in stock.
    Motorola DROID 3 Shell/Holster Combo from Verizon Wireless
    They could order it for me with 2 day delivery. Tried universal leather holster in store and the Droid 3 fits fine.

    Speaking personally, the store that I went to only had a black gel case, a blue one and the extended battery. I'd say within the next couple of days they should start getting more in?

    Same here. And the blue one would have got destroyed easily. So, I just got the black one. It's pretty good. If I feel the need to get a new one I'll just do that. I got a discount from the 12 dollars to 9 so pretty decent buy.

    Got an awesome rubberized snap case from amazon, 5.99, better than getting hosed at the verizon store, and the quality/fit is as good as any verizon product I've ever had.

    Just an update, I ordered the shell holster combo from verizon and I really like it. It fits very tight and fits in the belt holster very securly. I got it for $23 with free upgrade to over night shipping and I just got it today. I highly reccommend it if someone is looking for a nice 2 in 1 case that can mount in a belt clip. Its rugged enough to keep it safe from bumps and bruises but still clean looking.

    This case does not fit with the optional inductive battery door.

    Well, there are none on line for purchase.

    My vzw store had a purple and a blue one (very strange colors to pre stock btw)... and a gel/pleather black one which was ok but had no kickstand, and its kind of stretched out now and doesnt sit right on the power button so i am having trouble hitting it right. Long sigh... I had to have something, but hopefully the store gets more in stock and I can return this one for a tighter one with kickstand (loved the kickstand )within my 14 days.

    Ordered mine Thursday + car charger and got it today. So much better than the letter pouch.

    I will second ('third'?) that sentiment. My shell/holster combo arrived this afternoon and the fit and finish is nice, very similar to the Surface case/holster combo from Seido I used with my original Droid. But for some days and when I use the dock every night it isn't very convenient. It also doesn't help that the D3 is already a bit large for my comfort (it makes the power button a tad uncomfortable) which the shell then exacerbates. But no one seems to make a suitable holster for it right now. Seido lists nothing for it, this thread has already gone over the lackluster selection from Verizon and even the 'generic' holsters I've found are either far too small or far too large.

    I will admit that the kickstand on the Verizon shell/holster combo is a nice little touch but is much less useful now that I have a Transformer tablet that has taken over most of the duties that lend themselves to that feature.

    Can the holster be used w/out the shell?

    According to Verizon's website, the shell is supposed to work with the dock. Does it not?

    The holster cannot be used without the shell.

    I have tried but the shell that is included in the shell & holster combo does not fit the dock, even after removing the dock's insert. It seems that the kickstand design adds more girth than the other cases and shells.

    I noticed that with all the cases I bought for my original droid the front slider part of the case broke very easily. I had a cheap one when I first got the phone that lasted a little bit till the clips holding to the front of the phone broke off. Then I bought an otterbox thinking that if I paid more money for a nice case it wouldn't happen again. Wrong. Same problem. Then I noticed the Seidio innocase with dock. Bought that, still use the dock but same problem. So for a while until I got the D3 I went caseless. Although the Seidio did last me the longest I would like to know if anyone has had similar problems or finds a case that not only looks good but fits nicely in my hand and pocket. Oh and if it doesn't break every 2 months that would be nice.
