I bought the Otterbox mid grade case (commuter?) a year or so ago. The rubber piece that covers the ports at the bottom is SUPER crappy and poorly designed. Won't stay put no matter what. Only has the TINIEST lip to hold it where it should be. Also very thin in the bottom. Mine cracked there pretty soon after I got it. Otterbox was not helpful in their support.
In the end I just cut the bottom port cover off with a razor. Yes the cover was that useless. Better off without it.
I always wish I would have went with the Trident. Sweet looking and as for not having a belt clip, well... Belt clips are way up there on the dorkiest looking shit ever list. Unless you need it for your job or something. It's up there with wearing your bluetooth all the time whether you are on a call or not. Just makes you look like a tool.
