    $(@*&@&$!)$&#*!!!!!!

    Dang, pretty soon they are gonna be FREE!!!

    I find the "dumping" of these Verizon cases on Ebay VERY interesting! There may be some validity to the Rumor of the "recall" on these cases due to the before mentioned minor "defect" of them not fitting perfectly/tightly on the upper right hand corner.

    I am starting to wonder if the manufacture is dumping these to "ebay wholesalers" because they are revising the case to fix this small fitment issue on new production..

    Time will tell, even though it really doesn't bother me(and I would never have noticed had it not been pointed out) if I do see a newer version out that fits better in that small area I will take my original back to Verizon for an exchange.

    The ones on ebay are the ones that were recalled and scrapped. I discovered the difference between the current ones and the scrapped ones in this discussion:

    shell/holster combo problem - Page 2 - Android Forums

    Start with post #55. The scrapped ones have extra tabs on the screen side part that could tear the key stickers off the keyboard. Minkyboi describes the porblem it caused him in post #49. There may be additional differences, but that is the only obvious one. For me, I would rather pay $30 and not damage my Droid, but if you are willing to risk it, so be it.

    Great info, thanks!

    Mental note to file down that tab if it has one. The one I got from V doesn't have that tab. Now the Ebay clearance makes perfect sense.

    You're welcome. Note that there are 2 tabs on that side. Remove both of them. I personally still wouldn't risk the junked ones, but if that is the only problem then removal should fix it.

    Will do, I only bought this cheap one as a spare in case I broke the holster or something.

    Not a bad idea to get a spare holster in case the spring breaks. I might consider that.

    I got mine on eBay FTW.

    I am having a small concern with mine though. Not saying its eBay related, but the clip on the top left of the screen piece rubs the keyboard when I slide it. Not sure if this is case design, or if my screen is crooked or what...I'm think of just buffing it down ever so slightly with a Dremel....or wondering if the case will work just without out it and just 'buh bye' to this one clip.

    Also when closed I can slide a business card through the bottom clip on the left and phone housing, but 'no way' on the top one.

    I hope this makes sense.
