    Got it with my order last friday, I think it retails for like $40 + tax or something.

    My tip is - the standard battery cover will fit with the extended length battery. I don't know if this is "safe", but it does make the phone it's standard slim size with the extended battery. It doesn't bulge or anything.

    Well two days later and I vzw.com is sold out of cases AND batterys. I dont even have screen protectors, because I wanted to buy two things for the discount and all the site has is sp. So, basically, my phone is naked and Im not using protection.

    I hope they update their website soon, I was thinking tomorrow.

    Your local verizon store should have them. I bought my case and screen protectors from the one by me first thing saturday morning. They had just gotten them in.

    This trick doesn't seem to be working on mine. My wireless connection won't connect and i took it to Verizon, would they change it?

    I got a badass rubberized hard snap case for 5.99 off amazon. Better than paying 20-30 for a **** one from verizon. Fit's awesome, doesn't add much size at all, doesn't inhibit any keyboard movement, etc.

    If you miss the dedicated camera button...you can use the keyboard "OK" button to take pictures.

    On both D1 and D2 you could hit Shift-Alt-Del at the same time to reboot the phone (like windows). The same keys don't seem to work on the D3. has anyone gotten it to work?

    Thank you! The only reason I miss the hardware button is for when you are taking pictures of yourself. The FFC isn't neccessarily the camera I want to use for that.

    The hardware button was handy when needed, but it was also a pain in the ass because it was hard to press it to get it to snap the photo or start the video.
