OtterBox has said they have no release date or ETA for Revision B. There is only Revision A (the original) & all subsequent replacements will be Revision A. My case was initially not stretched, but with time the gap developed & was growing.

So I was getting no Where e-mailing.
Dropped a complaint on twitter and heard back within an hour....CRAZY.
They sent me 2 new Commuter cases.
Black on Black and White on Pink...

OPening both up and doing a white rubber piece with a black Hard Shell looks AWESOME.....Very Storm Trooper! HAHAHA...

Behold...the power of social media!

Mine is starting to get bad. I might do the same. Does anyone have any recommendations for different cases that are equivalent to this one?

It's nice. When not in use it's hardly noticeable & is held firmly to the case. It's not "wiggly" or loose. The case itself fits super-tight & actually accents the phone in my opinion. Also, the kickstand will hold the phone vertically as well as horizontally & even reverse-horizontally if you want to charge your phone while you view content or use the device. If I had one complaint it would be the case can be difficult to remove, but once you do it the first time it's pretty easy after that.

I think I'll have get me one now. I'm really trying not to get too many cases. I had about 14 for the O.G. EVO. I have 5 now for my 3D. I guess one more won't hurt. lol

I'm on my 3rd Commuter. I really like the case but that gap does start to bug me. I'm just grateful for terrific customer support

That ballistics case looks too bulky for me. I think I might go with that Seidio Active one. I emailed Otterbox to see what I do about getting a refund. I'm disappointed that this hasn't been rectified and I can understand why some would think it isn't an issue but it is really bothersome for me.

I'm on my second one. I brought it back to the Sprint store and the replaced it no questions asked however it is already stretched out again. Next time I go there I'm replacing it I think which is a shame since I really like this case.

Have you read through the thread? There are a number of us who have gotten replacements from Otterbox already that are STILL stretched out. I'm about to be on my 3rd case and I do not have high hopes for it.

Has anyone taken it back to Sprint and asked for a refund a couple of months later?

I tried that today. No such luck, they wouldn't even give me store credit nor apply it as a credit to my bill. I explained to him that this would be my third case since June 24th and still no luck. All i got was another new case at no charge.

I emailed customer service for Otterbox tonight. I put a copy of it as a new post. Hopefully a mod will move it here since it is relevant to this thread.
