    case too smooth & slippery (pics of me inside!!)

    My hands are kinda small and the case I have for my droid is a silicone case but it's very smooth and has a tendency to slip and slide around in my hand when I'm typing with one hand. Is there a case that's like a soft, rough, sort of sticky rubber/silicone/etc... that I can buy? Basically I want the phone to not slide around in my hand by having been made out of a very porous, non-viscous, material that will sorta stick to my hand. I tried to find this in the search function but couldn't. Any suggestions?

    I like the body glove case. It's a textured rubber and is very non-slippery. This is available at Verizon. I haven't used any other manufacturer's cases, so I don't know what else to recommend.

    The problem with Body Glove cases is that they tend to fall apart after 3 or 4 months - sooner, if you're doing frequent battery pulls. I'd recommend either the Otterbox or one of Seidio's. You can find both on Amazon.com, where they're fairly inexpensive.

    Hmmm... Since I got the phone I haven't removed the case or pulled the battery. Is this necessary to do? Do these others cases come off easily?

    No, if you're not rooted, you probably won't experience "boot loops", which are the principal reason that you'd need to pull the battery. In essence, Otterbox and Seidio are better made cases than Body Glove and stand up better to repeated removals - for whatever the reason - however, they may be overkill, if you don't need frequent access to the battery compartment, so go with the Body Glove.

    Thanks! This is good to know. The Body Glove is working well for me now, but since rooting is probably on the horizon within the next couple weeks, I'll check out those other cases.

    They do hold up better, with repeated removals. Back in the early days, I was *constantly* having to pull the battery on my Droid 1.

    Which case do you currently have?

    I use the seidio innocase for my original droid and it's soft but not "slippery".

    Buy a Body Glove, seemed to be the consensus. :)

    i have had the verizon case and the front piece broke off fairly quickly. i have had 2 otterbox cases and both the front pieces broke off within two weeks and the backpieces started to get weaker. and i have had a seido case for almost 6 months now (not counting but for months and months) and the frontpiece or the backpiece is still not broken. in fact, ever since i got the case, the frontpiece has never been unattached to my droid.
