    I am using an otter box, dropped it from 20ft. and phone was in excellent condition. My only complaint is that the built in screen protector sometimes makes the touch screen a little unresponsive.

    Otterbox is the only way to go in my opinion. My commuter case should be here soon its all I've ever used on my smart phones. Takes awhile to get them though. Shipping is taking 10 days nd there based in Colorado nd I'm in Arizona, why so long fedexxx :(

    I use an OtterBox Defender. I absolutely love it. I have however considered the Incipio case. If it only had a belt clip....

    otterbox defender is too much.... whyd u buy a thin phone to make i as thick as a phone book..... the commuter will do u just fine as long as you dont plan on dropping it off two story buildings. i find most drops are from your lap to the ground, highest being when your getting out of the car. itll work up to 8 ft fine id say. impact is even thinner but doesnt have tha hard shell that makes a big difference.

    I use the otter box commuter. A tad pricey but if I laid 300 dollars for my phone id like it protected.

    That's what im saying. You got a $500 pocket computer rolling around with you. Im gonna get something better than a 10$$500 case I haggled for... the commuter is perfect. Get it from amazon tho... its way cheaper than from the otterbox website.

    Not saying the 10 case is the best but if you drop the phone the case mightbreak. Happened to me with my 35 dollar case and a 30 dollar one afterwards, the case will get damaged and not protect properly so why spend so much?

    I have a BodyGlove case on my Droid X - decent protection, unobtrusive color (black) and it allows access to the buttons on the DX, which was an issue with the Otterbox Commuter case I had on it before. As for the Trident Kraken case, :::shudder::: that was a total disaster.

    case

    This is my newest case. I also have a kracken that I use for the outdoors and a standard verizon hard silicon case.

    I like this one. I never use a holster, a phone hanging from your belt is about as cool as a fanny pack, but I might get this one for just the case.

    Does it have to be removed to put the phone into the dock?

    I haven't gotten it yet but I just ordered this one from Amazon

    http://www.amazon.com/Snap-Protector-Motorola-Droid-MB810/dp/B0040W8PD8/ref=wl_it_dp_o?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3VDZ7WPW8CMY6&colid=1N7FBVCU77GR1


    My buddy has the same case with a different design and he loves it. I've personally seen him drop the things so much. This one time at the bar he dropped the thing 4times, twice on the concrete and it held up fine. He's had it for like 6months and its still goin strong. And its only like 6$ so its well worth it in my opinion and I love the design on the one I linked too. Amazon is the best and most reliable place I've found for phone cases online. I've bought my last 6 cases from them. And you can't beat those prices. I've seen that same case in the mall but it was 25$ and the last case I got for my D2G before I switched to the DX, was only 8$ on Amazon plus it came with a free screen protector and they also had that case at a kiosk in the mall but it was 15$ and it didn't come with a screen protector. So my point being, go with Amazon to buy/find a case. Also, skins.com (I believe that's the URL for the site) is pretty cool, you can design your own case, you can even upload your own picture/design and they will put it on the case for you. Haven't tried it yet but I know people who have and they like them. But from what I've seen and heard, the best case for protection, is Ghost Armour. Its clear so you barely notice it, and I watched them take a drill with a Phillips head bit in it and run it all over the case and they dropped it from pretty high up and no matter what they did, it didn't leave a mark. It was amazing. The only downfall is they are hard as hell to put on. But at the mall near my house they have a ghost armour kiosk, and they will put it on for you and they have a machine that sucks it down to your phone so its on their perfectly.
