    Has anyone else noticed that a lot of the cases out there cover up the noise cancelling mics on the back? I presume that's what those 2 little holes to the left lower backside are for?

    I have tried a few cases already and haven't really found one I liked all that much... Was looking at the otterbox commuter which has good reviews, but if it covers the noise cancelling mic(s), wouldn't that make call quality go down?

    I have the otterbox and really like it. I don't think it covers up the mics but I think they're on the sides of the phone not the back. There are holes for what I think are the mics.

    Actually they go to two contact inside the rear cover that make contact with something in the phone. The extended battery cover does not have them!

    Still searching, they appear to be for an electrical connection.

    I believe they might be for a charging mat.

    No the charging mat takes a different rear cover. It is bumped out like the extended cover, but not quite as much.

    Ah ok well at least that helps... knowing it isn't covering the noise cancelling mic!

    Can anybody post a picture or something, showing definitively what holes do what?

    The holes that the otter box account for, are on the sides of the phone. Other than the large hole on the rear ,there are no other microphones on the rear.

    OK here is a inside and outside picture. I can not see that these have an antenna connected like the others. It is either a battery connection or a reset connection, or something else like that.

    Here is a close up. Contacts appear to be there to make contact with something pushed into the case. On the blades you can see marks where they make contact in the phone. A brave person could touch meter leads on the phone side contacts with the back off and see if they measure battery voltage.

    That's for the antenna. You'll notice all battery backs have those contact points.
    The noise canceling microphone is on the upper left side directly opposite of the volume rocker.

    OK, took my extended back off and it has evidence of an antenna.

    No, all of the antenna's are built into the three different back covers.

    1. STANDARD
    2. CHARGE PAD
    3. EXTENDED BATTERY
