Default Verizon case w/ kickstand

I was just at Verizon today to get another case for my phone (the rubberized one I got on ebay is total junk)... got this one from Verizon for 50% off, looks like they're discontinuing it? It's AMAZING!!! It was only 9.99... looks like its sold out online but stores seem to have it. I may get a backup for when I at some point accidentally snap off the kickstand lol. It's very cool though because you can stand it both horizontally and vertically. Glad I found it before they were all gone.

I got mine from E-bay, Because I couldn't find them on stores.

I like it, It's not bulky at all.

yeah, its adds no weight to the phone and very little volume... also adds just enough grip for the phone not to fly out of my hands.... I just ordered a 2nd one on ebay.

I have had one for a couple months and love it. As mentioned, it does not add much to the size at all and it is very nice for watching movies/vcast/youtube and also you can set your phone on your desk with it and have the phone plugged in and set the screen to never sleep while charging. Good stuff all around!

I bought this case last week. As said it is thin profile and light. The stand works well and sort of snaps into its closed position. I'm not sure how durable the hinge on the stand is, I'd be careful not to exert too much force when opening it.

The plastic is smoothe in a matte finish, it feels sort of dirty when you touch it, but its clean. Not sure if that makes sense, all around it is a good case.

Why doesn't this come in light pink! Hot pink is not really my color and I'm not a black/white case fan either.
Bummer....

Still the kickstand is pretty nifty!!

That is a ZAGG that got stuck to the inside of the clear plastic pouch in my motorcycle tank bag. That stuff almost adhered forever to the material of that plastic pouch. You can barely see it when the phone is on, it's not worth messing with to me.....

If you look at the 2nd picture down, just under the Verizon logo you see a distortion... that is the only one you can see. And I dont see it because Im not looking for it. Others tend to notice it a lot more than I do.

I just bought this for 9.99 directly from Verizon. For some reason, they Fedexed it to me overnight for free (????) I'll take it, I guess.

This thing is perfect. Very low profile case, with good grip. Kickstand is awesome.

Highly recommended

I just received mine the other day. Got screwed around for 20 days by AccessoryGeeks.com, cancelled my order, jumped to Verizon's site and saw it for 9.99 w/ the aforementioned free overnight delivery.

Note to online retailers, such as AccessoryGeeks.com...don't say something's in stock, have a customer purchase it, hang up on them repeatedly when trying to find out the status, disconnect from them during online "support" chat, and ultimately tell them, after 20 days, that "Sorry, the item is on backorder. You should have received an email telling you this. We are "tentatively" schedule to receive more in 5 days.". They jerked me around instead of giving me a straight answer, which was extremely shady.

I just find it hard to believe this would protect the phone from an accidental drop haha.

So... if you have this sitting on your desk or nightstand and you get a message or want to use it, so you press the screen... won't the phone slide? I mean, it doesn't look like the kickstand has padding or anything to keep it from sliding on a desk like surface.

I have this. No, it's not a stable dock. It's just for the convenience of watching a movie or reading without having to hold the phone up in the air for two hours.

so for 40 bucks i got a charger / screen protector / case but I'm not sure if I'm liking this one. The sort of bump made from the dock might be bugging me when I hold the phone

If dropped, this would protect the phone from back and corner damage, and depending on the surface dropped onto, yes... even the screen.

Now, if you drop it on a rock pointed up and it lands on the screen.... I don't know many slim cases that could do much to help you there? There is that nasty, fugly... OtterBox thing that turns a slim and light phone like ours into a nasty thing....

If I had a way to video right now, I would drop mine a few times for you, but my work PC can not upload/download anything nor can it go to youtube or any other type of file share or personal networking site like Facebook... so you'll need to test on your own.

And besides, for catastrophic loss..... this is why you are a smart consumer and have the affordable insurance on your $580 phone.... right?

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I just wanted to let anyone who might be looking for a case that this one is on sale right now in the verizon online store for $9.97 and they have free two day shipping. I orderd one yesterday and should have it Thursday or Friday depending on when it ships.
