LOL! I'm telling you, having it put on by the pros is the only way to go. I think they do it at any Best Buy. I have Zagg carts in just about every mall around here, so i just buy mine there and have them installed right there by the pros. No way would I want to deal with that.

The orange peel eventually goes away too.

The Orange Peel is still there on my BSE on my BB, I have had the SP on for like 6 months. My Clarivue order shipped today, so I will hopefully have it in time.

They had them, I could have bought on the spot, but I am going to wait & see what is in store for me @ the Sprint store, I may buy something there, or grab the combo case on my way back to work (someone already beat me to the punch for taking the day off)

Anyway, back on topic.

Does anyone know, if they make a car dock/holder that attaches to the rear view mirror. Reason I ask is because, every window attached/dashboard attached car dock, just seems to fall off. And I would very much hate to have the EVO fall off the window/dash once I go over one of the infamous NYC potholes.

TS out
No kidding about the potholes. I have a Palm Pre (getting the Evo soon!) and touchstone in my car. The only time my Pre ever fell off was driving around on Staten Island.

On the Invisible Shields, the orange peel goes away over time. I have had the Invisible Shield on 6 devices and they all lost the orange peel eventually.

I think it might have something to do with it being a touch screen and getting smoother over time. But Invisible Shields always have a major orange peel effect when you first get it, and you get used to it. But 6 months later if you go back and look for it it's slick as glass with no orange peel at all.

Seemed pretty solid at the store, and tricky to get off, until you got the technique.

The Zagg nvisible Shield is like a third of a mm thick, so I would have to say it would probably fit.

EDIT:
From the FAQ on zagg.com

"Can I use a carrying case once I install the invisibleSHIELD onto my device?
We do not recommend using a case once you have installed the invisibleSHIELD onto your device. The purpose of the invisibleSHIELD is to keep your device safe and protected from dings and scratches without having to cover it up with a case. We refer to this style of protection as "Going Naked!" Your device will look shinny and new for the life of your device.
If you would like to use a case with your shielded device, we recommend silicone cases. These types of cases will fit around the invisibleSHIELD and tend to have fewer oils that can potentially stain the invisibleSHIELD.
We do not recommend using the invisibleSHIELD in conjunction with a hard case. Due to the easy grip texture of the invisibleSHIELD it can be too 'snug' making it difficult to remove the device from the case. Pulling the device in and out of the case may cause the invisibleSHIELD to begin peeling or lift off. Additionally, we do not recommend soft leather or felt cases as you may experience the same 'grip' problems as with the hard cases."

I got one of these: Amazon.com: Kensington Power Port Car Mount for iPhone and iPod: Electronics
I got it because it works with my iPhone AND it will work with my EVO when I get it next week. You can check out my video reviews of it here:

They sell a version that attatches to the dash, and the windshield if a charger port won't work for you.

Money ZAGG Memorial Day Sale

For those interested, I just got an email from ZAGG offering 50% off on their Invisible Shields, skins, and other accessories for Memorial Day only.

I've had an Invisible Shield on my Moto Q9C for 2 years and I've pulled it off last week. I can attest that they work. I carried that phone in my pocket with my keys and spare change, and there was not a scratch on the screen. I'm talking "out of the box new".

Personally, I've already ordered from Clarivue and I'm gonna try them out this time with a Seidio Innocase II.

Take that video as gospel. You gotta have patience, no distractions, and wet fingers.

BTW for those who already have their EVOs. ZAGG is also offering free installation of products purchased at participating mall carts on Memorial Day.

I don't want to sound to mean but wouldn't it be better to buy a mount that works with your phone. To be noted I'm happy to see people coming up with inovations, and I applaud you, but rubber bands when you can get something that works. I do like that you think outside of the box.

Peace, Chuck

I would highly suggest looking into this solution: Car Bean Bag Dash & Windshield Holder for the HTC EVO 4G - Gomadic Brand

This brand interests me because they have a lifetime warranty. The model also interests me because it can fit the EVO while it is cased (I ordered the Seidio Innocase).

I wouldn't like the stress put on the charger port either, not to mention I'll be using it on company vehicles and cannot be "that guy who broke the charging port". Also, having to look anywhere below the dashboard is a problem for me, not the best place to have your phone when using it as a gps.

ProClip told me the other day that they WILL have one for the EVO but it isn't ready yet. And the HD2 won't power the EVO so I'll have to go without for a few days/weeks!

The ProClip (ProClip Mounting System*-*Device Holders and Dashboard Vehicle Mounts) firmly attaches in a variety of ways (depending on your vehicle) and has been great. I one one in my SRX for my Hero and in my wife's Camry for her BB Curve... we LOVE 'em!!

I bought the Magellan iPhone Holder for my iPhone 3Gs and it was great because I didn't have to remove the cases off of my iphone. Which brings me to the point, I'm really glad someone on this thread reminded me of that same point. I was actually looking at sone pics of the official car dock for the Evo and it appears as though it can only be used without a case. Can anyone confirm this or know if if the Evo dock can be used with a dock?

I think that will be the deciding factor for me if I get a universal dock or the OEM Evo dock. I've seen some pretty nice universal ones...both on ebay and on Amazon.

This looks to be the correct, if it is made for the EVO, it will more than likely be an exact fit, and won't fit any cases. Maybe a full body film, but more than likely not a hard case. This is just from my experience w/ other phones.

The link I posted above has some nice combos of just the suction cup phone mount, mount + a beanbag, phone holder + a vent mount, etc. They are cheaper priced ones, but w/ no warranty or a very limited return policy. This one drew my attention because of the lifetime warranty they boast. I've never seen any mid priced (or really any to be honest) car mount w/ a lifetime warranty.

I am not an employee for this company and have nothing to gain by suggesting their products lol. I don't even have one yet, but it will be my next accessory purchase around the corner after I get my EVO. I'm hoping to find out if it can be turned landscape mode, if not, it's not a dealbreaker.

The Seidio case looks sweet and all, but I am hesitant to buy anything before I see what Best Buy and Sprint have to offer on release day. My appt is at 7am, so I should be able to get the pick of the liter.

Can't we technically use the HD2 car dock?

Be careful with Amzer products, I've read some reviews on cases they released for other phones, and the reviews are subpar at best.

There's a bluetooth discussion thread that you can probably read through and chime in to see what other people say.

At one point in the past, I was conflicted between Blueant and Jawbone, as they were both getting rave reviews (by consumers and "experts"). Ultimately, I went with the Jawbone (Jawbone II to be exact), simply because the only time I use my bluetooth is when I'm in my car and I needed to go with the bluetooth that had the best noise reduction (especially because I roll with the windows partially down, majority of the time; unless it's raining).

I'm actually considering upgrading to the Jawbone icon, but not sure yet. I've also been considering moving over to a stereo bluetooth headset for the times that I want to listen to music on my phone.

After reading around for a while I went ahead and ordered the blueant, we'll see how it works out!

Nope, actually if you look at the connections for the micro usb the Evo's is shifted to the left to make room for the micro hdmi. Plus the Evo is a tad thicker than the HD2.

I've been checking Otterbox daily...it's probably not going to happen for a while though...I can't find any case that seems worthy to hold me over until the Otterbox is released(I have a fairly physical job, I need a rugged case).

Check this out, iFixit just did a tear down of the EVO 4G and in the first layout pic it shows a 16gb micro sd card.

I made a quick stop by the Sprint Corporate store before I went to work this morning to buy a universal car mount for my Evo. But anyway, the associate got to talking about the Evo and I showed him mine. I asked him if he had any cases in and he was like "yeah, I'll contact my manager" to see if I can sell you one. So I was like cool. But as we waited for the manager to call back, this other associate comes by and says "Oh yeah, we can't sell him a case. They haven't even inventoried yet and they don't go on sell till the 4th." I was like what the %^$%. I was that close to getting me a nice case for my Evo.

I get off work in less than a hour. So I plan to stop back through there and attempt to get a case. Hopefully the crew that was working this morning is gone.

Oh and by the way the universal car mount is wonderful. I will post pics of it when I get home.

That's just a universal, right? I'm planning on buying the one specific to the EVO (which I think will probably be the same as the HD2 one), that has the built in charging connector.

Hey there team! Anyone know of any cases that would be good to use at the gym? More specifically, one that would strap on to my arm. I poked around eBay but can't seem to find one. I even checked for one for the HD2 but no dice. Hopefully someone can point me the the right direction.

Anybody know of the largest, most awkward, most powerful extended battery they have on the market today for the EVO? I'm talking like at least 2800mAh w/ an extended door.

I'll probably get that one if I have to take my case off every time with the official EVO car dock.

I agree SoFlo.. That would be a pain to take off and put back on every time. I'll probably go that route as well.

Just FYI, that dock looks an awful lot like the one in this thread
HTC EVO Accessories For The Cheap-minded.

Here's a link to the dock

and it's only $5!
