    i bought a seidio case within the first 2 weeks of having my phone and havent taken it off since. i took it off today to clean dust build up and forgot how awesome this phone feels in your hand when its naked. the case i have is small but holding it now without it makes me realize the droid is much more slim and pleasant without it. i dont wanna put the case back on!! but ive already successfully dropped my doid twice with no damage what so ever..

    I never put the case on...I bought a full body InvisiShield and carried it in my pocket that way - then I slowly peeled away the shield and ended up carrying it as it was meant to be...without any protection. I've dropped it a few times and nothing has happened to it.

    I say, keep it without the case for a week and see what your daily life does to it...that's how I did it.

    My Sedio case is coming tomorrow.

    I feel ya. I had an iPod Touch 1G, my gf has a 2G, and I had a 3GS that I gave to my parents. All of them have incase slider cases on them. It's slick and sexy, but it makes the device WAY fatter. When I take it off to admire the shiny silver of my old iPod touch I smile thinking what a good job my case did. However, when I hold it in my hand... dang it is small.

    I'm sure I'll feel the same about my Droid. I took good care of the 3GS but my iPod Touch was a dropped stone all the time. The bottom of my slider case kinda snapped and a good chunk has chipped off. Hopefully I don't drop my Droid like that, but at least I'll have a good case protecting it!

    Been a while. Running BB ROMs so I have yet to have to do a battery pull. Personally I prefer the feel of the phone in the case (Seidio, though BG will likely be my next one). Naked is fine for some but I use mine in some pretty tough environments and want the extra protection.

    I can only pull mine on weekends when i"m not working. With what I do, the case is pretty much mandatory. Which sucks, cuz I really prefer it nekkid.

    Slide the phone open and then pull slightly on the areas near the outer tabs. After you get the outer tabs off close the phone and you should be able to slide the top of to the left of the device.

    Note: you're lucky, most people have the opposite problem (i.e. it's doesn't stay on:icon_ banana:).

    i had a case on mine, and i had an Airhead (candy) unwrapped on a table. i accidently put my phone on top of it and it got all sticky. i was too lazy to clean it so i took the case off and totally missed the feeling of it being naked. not sure if i'll put the case back on lol

    When I bought the Droid I had to have a shxtload of accessories. I have a nice black case that's kind of got a hard rubbery/leather feel to it. On the back it has a clip doodad that inserts into a belt clip (which doubles as a nice landscape or portrait phone prop, without the belt clip the phone fits nice and snug into the dash thingy for Nav (or rush hour slot play).

    To answer the question ... Once, to do a battery pull while overtaxing the video cam. I guess I'd have to if I ever found a need to put it in the media dock, cause it doesn't fit with the cover on.

    This Droid's a beast!!
