I just got my otterbox commuter in the mail that I ordered from Verizon site. Mine did not have the screen protector in it either, even though the verizon site specifically said it came with the self-adhesive screen protector. I went into my local verizon store and they use a different database to pull their info from. The one they looked at did not mention the screen protector. They were pretty dumbfounded when I pulled up the site that I ordered off of and it stated the screen protector.

Verizon doesn't know what their own site says about the Otterbox case they are selling. Not to be outdone, Otterbox doesn't even know their case exists in the wild, or at all, for that matter. This is rich.

Anyone have the otterbox defender? Mine has issues when making a phone call, the screen goes black and won't turn back on. Really weird... I like the case but I'm afraid I'll have to return it

Seems the screen protector messes with the proximity sensor. Ugh.

Others have posted of issues with their screen going black and it has turned out to be a screen protector interfering with the proximity sensor, yes. But the other case that comes to mind was a guy who was cutting a different template to fix the Maxx and it just wasn't the right fit.

Can anyone recommend a decent thin case? I ordered a Diztronic earlier this week and believe it or not its still not here. I usually always order from them and get it within 2 days. Just sent an email to their support. Thanks guys.

I'm using the incipio feather case. Ordered it thru amazon. It has good feel an doesn't take the shape away from the phone. I also have the bumper and the speck case. My favorite is the feather followed by the speck. Hope this helps.

Do you happen to have a link to that case? Also do you have a car dock and if so does it still work with the car dock? Thanks for your help.

Here's the link. I'm not sure if it will work with the car dock, it doesn't add too much thickness. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00EDRWDGA/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1378580471&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL85

Like I said I don't use a car dock but I use this. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B004G1L52Q/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1378580592&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL85

It works great if you don't use your Cd player. I have a nav in the car and use the phone for my music.

It's weird... Sometimes it's fine, others it gets all crazy. I trimmed the case and it seems better, but not totally fixed...

I got the Griffin Reveal case yesterday and absolutely love it. It looks a lot like the bumper but also has a clear covering over the back. I got the black one. It doesn't look nice on the website, but I was drawn to it immediately in the store. Pretty thin and highly recommended!

I have the Griffin Reveal case also, only in white. I discovered I can put different things inside the clear back of the case that show through, like patterned paper I cut to fit. Makes it look like a designer case (smile). I bought the paper by the sheet at a craft store. Now I am a lady so maybe this appeals to me more that it would to most of you! Currently I am using a light blue background paper with white polka dots! You could also put in a photograph you print out. Just need to trim it to fit.

I got the Diztronic case and I'm impressed. Normally these TPU cases have had annoying parting lines (where the molds fit together) but this one is smooth and very professional. It's the best TPU case I've ever seen. The port openings are perfectly-finished. There are small features above and below the rear camera lens to protect the lens even more and allow the speakerphone to be heard well when the phone's lying on a table. The buttons feel terrific through it--almost like there's no case there at all. This case is a total winner. I like it so much that I'm saving the $20 price difference and taking the Incipio DualPro back. This is the 4th case I've tried (Bumper, Defender, DualPro) and this one smokes them all. Order with confidence

For the first three weeks I was using the bumper case. I like the bumper, but, after 20 months being carried around in my pocket, my Droid 3 had dust in the headphone jack, USB port, HDMI port, and even within the removal back. Everything still worked fine, but I knew this would continue to be an issue.

So, last night I went into VZW and bought the Otterbox Commuter case, which has port covers for the headphone jack and USB port. It makes a phone that's already a little on the big side even bigger, [edit - and a phone on the heavy side even heavier], but I think not terribly so, so I am going to try this out for a while.

I may go back to the bumper case, though. We'll see.

I'll definitely buy the commuter when the "Hornet" color combo is available. The port covers are worth their weight in gold in dirty, dusty environments.

Yesterday I posted a 1 star review on Verizon's accessory page for the Maxx Commuter case (saying I love the case but hate the false advertising, the missing cover, and the failure of verizon's/otterbox to do anything or show any concern for the issue)

Today Verizon did the following:
1) deleted my review
2) updated their Commuter Maxx description: it no longer states that it includes a self adhesive screen protector.

Also, Otterbox's supervisors emailed and called me back. They ensured me that their entire Commuter series, especially the upcoming Maxx case, include a screen protector. They are also trying to investigate how Verizon acquired any of this product becuase it doesn't exist yet. They told me to return to a Verizon store and insist that a manager give me the cover that they must have removed from the packages. I sent her links to this forum, and told her that the Commuter retail package sold at Verizon makes no mention of a screen cover on the back. Other Commuter case packages show a drawing of the screen cover on the back.

The Verizon sku's listed are 77-31870, 72, 74, 76. The Otterbox site thus far still only lists 2 other color combinations 77-31459, 61.

I tried the Verizon bumper case and don't like the seam/3 part construction where the red color band is running all around the side. The fit/finish doesn't feel very high quality.

FYI, the Diztronic XT1080M case is back in stock at Amazon with a promo of 10% off 2+, 20+ off 3+ Diztronic cases. Free super saver shipping over $25, or free 2day prime shipping for prime customers.

It's obvious there's a communication breakdown here The OtterBox cases at VZW stores are genuine. I've seen both and there's no question in my mind.

Here are photos of my Otterbox commuter packages. They deleted "protects against scratches" and "includes screen protector". (hopefully just on the ones sold through Verizon)

When it comes to screen protectors, I don't ever use the otterbox things anyway. I prefer the zagg/skinomi style anyway, but perhaps that's just me.

It is weird that otterbox has no idea that Verizon is selling their cases, though.

I'm back to the bumper. The Otterbox Commuter just makes the phone too thick and, especially, heavy. The bumper seems just right, at least for me.

Really? I thought even the bumper made the phone feel too thick and heavy. That's why I went with a TPU skin, which I love! It probably won't protect much against a significant drop, but it should protect from the little bumps of daily life, and it only feels slightly bulkier than the bare phone.

I'm really frustrated that the Ghost Wirless charger or really ANY wireless charger at Verizon does not qualify for a discount. My corporate discount is 25% off of accessories. With the exception of Apple accessories and Bose, it has always worked. For some reason, wireless chargers, regardless of name brand are not included in the 25% discount.

Anyone know why? If you know you know more than the Verizon CSR's because I've asked them and they are clueless.

Just received my Diztronic TPU case yesterday and I agree with the above review on all counts. It's a sleek, beautiful case that doesn't add very much weight or thickness to the phone, feels great in hand, and is easy to remove if you want to go naked around the house. I had a Diztronic TPU case for my Bionic and this version has much better build quality. Plus the price can't be beat. Highly recommended.

I should also add that my two Droid-branded Ghost 100 charging pads work great through the Diztronic TPU case.

Okay, I've scanned this thread a few times but I can't find it. I know I'm missing it. Does anyone know where to find information about the car dock that connects to your vents?

You're probably thinking of the Kenu airframe.

Kenu Airframe - Kenu

If you want to see one, I know that that they have them in apple stores, if you have one nearby. I bought my son one for his iphone 5. It's supposed to work for a phone up to 4.8" displays, though they claim it works with the galaxy s4, which is only .05" narrower than the Maxx.

Or, Kenu Airframe Car Vent Mount for iPhone - Apple Store (U.S.)

I don't know if you want a specific one for the Maxx, but this is the one I have. I bought it 3 years ago for my Droid X (not the Moto X), and it can connect to the vents, window, or dash. I prefer the vents as it leaves no evidence. The width is adjustable, but one thing I noticed when I use it with my Razr Maxx is the snug fit. I know the new Droid Maxx is a bit wider, so if you have a case, this one may not work. If you check the measurements, you should be ok. I highly recommend this one (if it fits, that is).

Anyone know why? If you know you know more than the Verizon CSR's because I've asked them and they are clueless.
Just for the heck of it, I logged in to my corporate site and looked as well. No wireless chargers listed at a discount. I wonder if you go to their site and start up a chat if you could ask for it that way. Some of those chat reps seem to bend over backwards to make a sale. Besides, what's the worst they could say? No?

I've asked multiple online sales reps. All have said that they aren't covered with the discount. I don't get it. None of them could tell me why either. Their first response is that no Apple or Bose accessory is available at 25% off. Then I explain they are not Apple or Bose accessories, all they can say is they don't know why but they aren't covered.

It's not a Droid Maxx specific accessory but I got my Chromecast today and I'm loving it.

I received this case yesterday, purchased on Amazon. It is large enough to fit the Maxx with the bumper on it, and still get it out one handed. I only need it to last until Seidio gets a holster made for the Maxx - that is my holy grail of holsters. ARE YOU LISTENING, SEIDIO?

I got mine as a universal accessory from a local shop. I think even Walmart has them.

I check Seidio's website every day for the naked, spring clip holster.

No luck so far.

He chimed in earlier that he would let their devs know there was a market for them.

I'm sort of surprised that they didn't think there would be a market for them out of the chute... but that's me.

I can see them making cases for the Samsung phones and Moto X first, as those are available at all the carriers. And that fruity cult phone thing, too. But how difficult can it be to change a design that has a bazillion iterations, maybe make new tooling, and get a new holster on the market?

EDIT: This looks like a nice case but I can't find it in stock anywhere of course .

I've had the DualPro (black) for about a week now. Fits the phone perfect, feels good in hand and slides in and out of pocket fairly easy, just the right amount of grip. Placed order from their site.

I also have the Griffin Reveal case and so far it's just about perfect. Very light weight, low profile. Only nuisance right now is that since I just got this phone, I'm still dragging icons across screens and I have to push back the edges of the case to get over to the site. Other than that though, it fits my needs perfectly.

Just got auto-reply email that the "official" Commuter is available from OtterBox. I ordered one in "Hornet" (yellow shell, black liner). I'll let you all know how it goes.

Ordered my Maxx last night, went with the black high gloss silicon (tpu) cover and 3-pk anti scratch screen protectors like I have for every smartphone I've owned. Not a fan of snap on covers (only one I ever bought was the red to black fade one for the DInc) and don't like my cases to be really busy looking. The screen protectors seem to work as well as any I've gotten from Seidio or Steinhill, and much better than my first one (a Zagg one that was like running your finger across rubber). And since the width of my S3 and the Maxx are the same, I should get the same feel in the hand as I have now. Thursday can't come soon enough!

I'm torn between the Diztronic and the Bumper. I've always gone nekkid without issue but I feel like this phone breaks easier than my D4 or D3 would. I dropped those a few times and they were fine but I get the feeling one slip and this thing will go POP.

I have the Qmatix on there now but it's way too bulky for me.
