What's the consensus out there? 1. Do you use a cover? 2. What cover do you use? 3. Why? 4. Cost more than $10.00? Cost less than $10.00? 5. How many have you tried before settling on the one you use now? 6. Hard cover or soft cover? 7. What features do you feel would make the perfect cover? I'll start myself! I do use a cover. The VZW Gel Cover. It offers good protection and has a grippy surface for a solid grip. It was more than ten bucks. Second cover I bought - the first was a hard shell plastic - I hated it. This is a soft cover and works for me! Low cost, good protection, thin, easy to remove and enhances the look of my phone!
