Default Best Case For Optimus V

Some folks have been asking about cases...here are my favs so far, feel free to add yours.

Rubberized - Body Glove - BG makes a nice form-fitting case for the Optimus S (that should work for the V) that has cutouts for all the important ports. The case also comes (most of the time) with a belt clip that doubles as a kickstand, allowing the owner to set the phone at an angle, either horizontally or vertically...like the Evo advertises. The clip attaches to a button that can also be used with a conventional belt clip, or a car mount that accepts that button. I like this option as it means I can mount the phone on a belt or in my car without having to take it out of the case. The case can sell for up to $30 at Sprint or in the mall, as low as $15 shipped on eBay. A few Radio Shack stores have them for $20. There is also a one-piece version of this case with no button on the back, or kickstand, so be sure you order the version you wish. The one-piece version without the button/kickstand is known as the Entrepreneur series. The case has an opening on the back for both the camera lens and the speaker hole.

Cell Guru has a large selection of cases for the S/V, and will give you an idea of what's available in one place.

Leather - PDAir.com has some nice Monaco series cases for the Optimus One (again the same phone) available in a book style or in a book or flip Style. The Book and Flip cases have an optional button provided for a belt clip or compatible car mount-the only leather cases I've seen that do. These cases are originally made for the Optimus One P500, the European version of the Optimus. The cases have a hole for the camera, but not for the adjoining speaker hole. PDAir also sells on eBay.

I should also add that PDAir has a windshield mount designed for their flip case that uses the button as well:

And of course, there are tons of leather and other cases on eBay.
