    Bought this about a week or so ago. I like it as it adds more texture to the body of the phone so it's not so slippery, especially if you're using your head and shoulder to hold the phone to your ear. What I don't like is when you slide the keyboard out, the top row of keys are a bit crowded due to the cover. I have bigger fingers. Also, a lot of lent gets caught on it which I don't really care for, but it does fall off.. not like it's sticking.

    There aren't alot of cases on the market yet. I was hoping to find a silicone gel case like they have for the iphone, but that is out of the question due to the slide keyboard. If you need to pull the battery, it's a royal pain in the butt as the case isn't very easy to get off.

    All in all, it does what it's meant to- protect your phone, give you grip and durability. :motdroidvert:

    I have this case on my Droid now. And have to agree about the crowded top row of keys on the slider keyboard, now I don't even use the slider keyboard though.

    Found out today, that our cases cover a second background noise sensing mic in the Droid, below is a picture of a differnt case with the proper hole:

    I haven't had anyway say the call has been echoing yet. Good to know though.

    i have the shell/holster combo that i never used. i also just got the clear snap on case from VZW.com for $10 (50% off)

    the only thing i dont like is the inability to use the car/media dock with the case on

    Taking the case off isn't the easiest either for this one.

    I do it all the time to use the car dock, just pry from the bottom corner on either side of the center clip. I only remove the bottom cover.

    I have no complaints with mine. I love it. It comes off fairly simple I think for the car/media dock. No problems at all

    how is that case as far as strength. I contacted otterbox about making an otterbox defender and got stoned. Guess in their eyes still not as important as the iphone, pre, or blackberries, or just hard to make one for a phone with a slider keyboard.

    I bought a combo pack from VZ store that had a very similar snap on case, and a car mount that you could mount the case on, via the standard belt clip piece.

    Just as a friendly warning to those on the thread shopping for a case, don't confuse this case, which looks fine, with the one I got in the combo pack, because it had a thin film on it, to soften the feel, which immediately began peeling off. Took it back in less than a week.

    Holster for the VZW silicon case

    I too like the protection the VZW case provides, but would also like to know what holster works with this case. I hate walking around with it in my back pocket and possibly forgetting about it and sitting down. I miss calls cause I leave it in the house instead of pocketing it. A good holster is what I need
    Thanks, GregV
