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

    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.

    See post #6 of this thread. Fix yours ASAP or it will cause problems.

    I bought one from Verizon today

    I bought one from Verizon today and really think it is the best case available right now. I already have a 25% discount anyway on accesories, but even if you don't have one they will give you a 25% off. which brings it to like 22. Well worth not having to wait, and not to mention it is the best feeling case and you can use it with or without the belt clip without having that giant knob on the back.

    got mine today. very happy with it considering the $13 price i paid. The top right corner doesn't snap in. Went to the verizon store and tried the ones they had there with the same issue. I figure I will just file that part down and it will be just fine. Had I paid the $30 I would not be happy with it, if you pay $30 bucks you shouldnt have to modify or file anything down. I find that the bottom piece is very easy to put on and take off, which is nice because I have the multimedia dock and the car mount. You dont need to remove the front piece for your phone to fit into the docks. The case seems sturdy enough to put on and remove every evening to put into the dock. If you get one that has tabs along the side of the usb, go ahead and remove those tabs, the new model of this case no longer has those tabs.

    Take your receipts to a Verizon store and I bet they will replace the phone and the case.

    Do you think they would give me a new phone or a refurbished?

    The scratch.

    As long as it looks new, it shouldn't matter.

    Maybe I will call Verizon tomorrow and see what they say, but as you can see it looks terrible. Their own case that is meant to protect the phone damages the phone. But I paid a lot of money for the phone and I don't want to accept a refurbished phone.

    Thanks for the feedback Dave, I missed that #6 post. I did fix mine by removing that tab. No damage seems to have be caused because once I figured out it was rubbing I kept that tab no on all the way until I was able to fix it
