I emailed otterbox directly and they said that they didn't have any information on when one would be produced and that they have been receiving a lot of emails about a case for the Shift. So hopefully one will be coming out soon.

Yes it's there, but it says coming soon.....the Seidio active case has said coming soon for quite a while, so who knows when it will be available. One thing to note, Otterbox won't make a case with a holster for the shift

We'll have the Innocase Active available in about 1-2 weeks.

Gotta say the case looks pretty good. I'm happy with my Seidio case I got, couldn't wait for otter to come out. Guess if the Otter case gets good reviews I'll have to carry around 2 cases

I think I will be picking up either the Otterbox or the Active Innocase - has anyone used both before on other phones? How do they compare? They look like they provide the same type of protection with the dual layer thing.

I generally do not use a case, but think I will add one to my Shift.

I'm curious as well....it's kind of strange that Otterbox won't make a case for the shift that includes a holster.

I don't have any pics, but it is typical otterbox fare... tight fitting, a little bit bulky, nice screen protector. It was easy to install, and looks good. I am totally happy with it. It actually helps make the volume buttons much more difficult to press (a good thing) The slider is tight with the case on also, which I really like. I will try to get some pics up, but I'm not taking it off just for that...

Default just got my otterbox case...

...and I had a hard time snapping the front frame on.....Its on, and not going anywhere now, but the lower left and corner is still not actually "snapped" on...seems it just can't, clippy piece not fitted right ? well, I bought it from one of otterboxes distributors....so they still offered to send me out a new one , which was really nice....
next day (today) I realize when you slide the phone open and holding it the way you do to type / text...the left side is the rubbery end and it is easily pushed off / peels back because the hard part of the case doesn't begin yet. (does that make sense?)
I called and reported this to them, and while they made a note of it, they can't do anything else because I didn't buy it direct.
Oh well. I have a new one on the way....i'll use it till I cant stand it anymore, they say they don't have any other styles in the works for the shift.
fyi

After going through two Seidio Innocase front part keep popping off. I tried OttereBox. let me tell you I Love My OtterBox Commuter Series Case. It works like its suppose to you snap it on and that's it. it wont pop off like my "old/new" case Seidio. Actually I have a hard time removing this case off my phone. "hard reset" It is a little thicker than Seidio's case but it works .

The active holster works decently if you have the phone upside down, otherwise the power button will keep getting pressed.

Yeah, I have an active case which when dropped the front piece would pop off and after 4 months of using with care one of the upper clips broke on the front piece. That's 3 cases I've had from seidio that have had the clips break (2 with my touch pro 2). Disappointing considering I am very careful with my phones. On the other hand the otterbox isn't as nice looking but definately stays on much better and hopefully will outlast seidio's 3-4 month lifespan that I'm having.

I still have mine on, and it's been 4 months. It fits the same and has some wear, but nothing major at all. I have never even taken it off the phone.

My first innocase broke for the same reason as above. And somehow over the weekend the same happened to the second one. They'll replace under warranty, but I'll have to pay to ship it back to them. That can easily be a partial payment for a new case instead!

I'm on a quest for the next case. It looks like Otterbox is the one.
