    My new DX is only like a week old but I have been wondering if anyone is using a protective case for the outside of the DX. I already installed a Steinhill Ultra Clear screen protector (that is awesome btw). So is anyone using a protective case for the back/outside of the DX? Thanks.

    I use the black rocket fish case, its really nice but pricey. Amazon/Ebay has a knock off thats supposed to be better/the same as the Rocketfish case. I think its like $7 shipped? Check out the accessories section for more info.

    Qmadix Gel Case

    I picked that up from amazon a few weeks ago and I love it. I also picked up a snap-on rubberized hard case at the same time but the hard case feels more flimsy. The Qmadix case is durable and fits perfect. The buttons are covered instead of cut out but they cover them perfectly so it doesn't affect it at all. If you want an inexpensive soft case I recommend that one.

    I haven't had too much luck with soft cases in the past. I had a BB Tour before this and used a Seidio Innocase II on it and it was really nice. Anything comparable to that for the DX?

    I have the silicon case from Verizon, which looks just like the Qmadix mentioned above. Very nice.

    Using a Steinhill anti-fingerprint with the Verizon shell-holster combo. I tried multiple cases (and returned them), and couldn't find anything I really liked. I'm not thrilled about this one (doesn't fit in the car dock), but works the best for me.

    I have the VZW fake carbon fiber case for my X. I've had a few accidental drops, and the case holds up pretty well.

    I've tried a few of them but like the VZW holster/case combo the best of all for carrying around in my line of work (construction mgr).

    Problem with the VZW holster/case combo is the extended battery with cover does not work. Also tried the Best Buy Platinum case for the x. It works with the extended battery, but it doesn't offer enough screen protection in a dusty environment, takes two hands to get the phone out, and it is too easy to put it back in wrong, risking a drop.

    Best solution thus far for me with an extended battery is to leave the battery cover off and use VZW's "high gloss silicone case" with the holster from the holster/case combo.

    This offers a fairly well sealed case that keep the dust out, slides into the holster with a fit that is tight enough to offer screen protection from dust, and easy to pull out.

    I would like to find a holster/case combo that works with the extended battery, and does not have that top clip on the holster that takes two hands to get the phone out ... sooner or later someone has to come up with one.

    +1 for the Rocketfish case. I have the blue one and it looks awesome and fits great. Little pricey but you get what you pay for imho. I also use the Vzn hard silicone case thats a nice change when I get tired of the Rocketfish.

    Personally, I use a combo of the Waterfield Suede "sleeve", and a 6 dollar nylon belt case I got from Lowes. I don't like cases, they add too much bulk. But I do like the sleeve for when I put my X in my pocket, helps keep the lint to a minimum, I'm paranoid about dust under the screen.

    I agree. The hard silicone case from Verizon is great. Combined with a good screen protector, it feels protected, but still slides in the pocket easy.

    I first got a case from verizon and then I went over to best buy and bought a Platinum case with a quick clip holster. It was a combo pack so everything came together and only cost $38 after tax. That was about how much the first case I bought for it was so I was really happy.

    Cheap but great

    I ordered a cheap rubberized hard case for my DX off ebay and it has worked great so far only a couple drops, but the case has help up well for a 2.99 ebay special.

    I have the Seidio Rugged, and it is awesome! I love it, and am not worried about it being dropped, banged up, or expoloding! :icon_ banana:

    Second this ^

    Probably the most protection with the least added bulk for a case. Has a rubberized coating on the outside that still remains slick for easy pocket removal.

    And..I also am waiting for the Otterbox version for the DX :icon_evil:
