    Has anyone put any hard or soft body cases on their Transform? I want to put a hard case on my gf's phone, but I'm worried the clips that hold the case on will scratch the keyboard. I had a cheap ebay case on my Epic, and the clips ran along the long sides of the screen rather than the top and bottom of the screen. Now my Epic perminately has two columns scratched into my keyboard. I know the clips on the Sprint OEM case run along the top and bottom to prevent scratching of the keyboard. The problem is, she doesn't the all chrome look.

    I found these cases from Mobi, but have never had any experience with their products. Can anyone tell me if they're any good? They look nice and they're cheap. Where are the clips positioned on the top half of the case?

    Any input would be great! Thanks!

    I swear I replied to this today. I got my hard shell from Radio Shack. They only had one, and it's a hi-tec looking clear package. Threw it away at the store. Snaps on, and is so snug, when people want to see my phone, they had no idea it was cased.
    I love it.

    Those don't look like they would fit the Transform, which has its rear camera in the center rather than off to the side like the Fascinate. Edit: not to mention that the Transform is a slider!

    I have never bought from that site but frankly I would not trust them if they are sleazy enough to advertise that case as fitting three different phones without first verifying that it actually does.

    I'm thinking about buying [​IMG]this but am trying to find some pictures of the fit first.

    That's identical to the one I have. If it is not a knockoff, it is awesome. It's very slim and looks like it's part of the phone. However, it is slippery, it will slide across your dash. Let me know, I can take a few pics.

    If you could snap a few pics, that'd be great. Specifically, I'm wondering how much clearance there is for the keyboard to slide in and out and if the clips for the top piece might get in the way there. Thanks.

    I'll do it at the office in the morning. The clips are tiny, maybe 2 sheets of paper thick.

    Yeah, I posted here and on Android Central too because I wasn't sure which forum was more active.



    And thanks for the input everyone. I think I'm going to head to Radio Shack and see what they have.
