I've been using a cheap clear plastic verizon two piece case since I got my Incredible. I keep meaning to get something better. Anyway, I've been traveling a lot in the past 2 weeks and I guess I've been over tired from all this travel and not as careful as usual but I have dropped my phone so many times in the past two weeks - on sidewalks, out of my purse, while in my purse, on the floor in meetings, you get the picture. Anyway, I have not had one single thing happen to my dInc. the time it flew out of my purse and landed in the parking lot it landed face down and I was sure it was going to be toast. It wasn't. So, get a case. Get any case.
