    So... I've been on the search for a really nice fitting g1 case and I came across two that I've been really satisfied with.

    1) The Motorola OEM Q case. I went to Best Buy today and this lady said "Yeah we have a case specific for the g1". Then she pulls out a Motorola case... She obviously didn't know what she was talking about. But I tried it out anyways.. it fit like a glove!!
    Nonetheless they didn't sell that Motorola case.
    So I did some google searching and found out that it was the OEM Motorola Q case.

    2) The Sidekick Slide case. I went to a T-Mobile store to look for a case and started testing a few cases. I came across a side case for the Slide. And again... fits like a charm. It is the T-Mobile brand as well.

    I will be purchasing both tomorrow and I'll take pictures of them to show quality and fitment. Then I'll return the one I didnt like (or felt was less fitting for the phone).

    Anyways... if you have one of these phones, or know a friend who has one; ask if they have a case that you can try.

    -Jose

    I went to the t-mobile store and bought the clear plastic case. The one that has the two "gull wings" that fold out on the back to use as kickstands. ("gull wings" like cars that have doors that open upward, like the delorean from "Back to the Future")

    Though, I immediately opened it up and started using it, while he was making change for the money I paid. I'm glad I did. The case I first picked up had a wing that wouldn't close all the way. So they immediately replaced the case, and I have a working one. But, if you get that case, open it and test the wings immediately, to be sure they're fully usable.

    (you can also buy that case online, but after today's experience, I wouldn't recommend that -- I'd hate to wait for shipping, discover the problem, convince the vendor they have to replace it, and then deal with more shipping and such)

    I found a case at walmart in the camera dept for 9.99,fits G1 very good and has stitched belt loop and mag lid. Look for a "KODAK" black leather camera case.

    Ok so the case came in yesterday.
    So far so good. I like it a lot.

    It does fit very tight, but I think after using it for a while it will loosen up.

    I took pics with my old phone and will upload them later tonight when I get home from work.

    But so far I rate it about 8/10.

    my question is it looks like it has a magnetic clip, does this interfere with your compass?
