Well it turns out the reason my Seidio case was fitting so poorly was that my phone was put together poorly. The chrome band was not seated properly in the assembly in the area of the USB port keeping the case from snapping on fully in that area. I took it to a Sprint service center and they told me it was bad and I should exchange it at Best Buy. PROBLEM! No stock can we say EVO all over again? So I get on the phone and start calling BB all over the Chicago area and nothing. So I call the Woodfield Mall mini store and the Girl goes Oh you want the Epic?? I have a ton of them!!!! at least 20!! Im like "Oh happy day"!! I get in my car drive about 40 minutes to the Mall and sure enough got my replacement there. One thing I did notice, My original Epic battery was stamped with a Mfg date of mid July and this one is Aug 16th only 2 weeks ago! It also had on it a few labels the first one didn't have including one from Qualcomm. They were very nice at Best Buy and even gave me a brand new Zagg screen protector to replace the one on the bad handset. So far so good.
