    Okay I can't find these anywhere. Not in any store nor EBay. If anyone knows a reliable, trustworthy site I can buy one from that would be great. Not looking for a hard plastic case; but a soft, floppy, gel case.

    P.S.
    I'm also looking for a custom QWERTY keypad. Like one of a different color than the stock keypad just for fun. Red keys would look awesome with the black phone.

    You won't find a silicone case. There needs to be tiny clips that just slip over the sides of the phone so the material needs to be rigid. I don't think I've ever seen a silicone case for a slider phone, or any "stretchy" type of case for that matter.

    I bought a soft, rubberized cover from Sprint when I bought the Epic. When you say "case," not sure if you mean a replacement for the actual case of the phone, or a cover that goes over it.

    I'm thinking he means a silicone case for the phone itself like all the other slate like phones have which won't fly on a Slider. I think even the case you have, while soft on the outside is still rigid. Otherwise, how would it clip on to the phone edges to stay in place?

    Anything you recommend that won't cause my InvisibleShield to peel off? Hard cases tend to do that.

    I don't think there are many options on a slider phone, at least any that I've seen that aren't rigid. It just has to be rigid to secure over the inside face of the phone. Isn't it a bit overkill though to have the shield and a case that you're leaving on all the time. Would think a hard case and screen protector would do the trick.

    It's like Packer above. Wants all the options of the specific fitted cradles while using a case. There's only so many options.

    I only have the InvisibleShield on the screen, but the edges of hard cases around the screen tend to hug the Shield too tightly and it causes the Shield to peel off. I had this problem with the EVO, so I returned my hard case to Radio Shack for a soft, floppy one.

    that's why I stopped using the shields and just went with regular screen protectors. The bigger goal is protecting your phone from drops and such as most screen protectors do a good job of protecting the screen. I think invisible shields are overkill on the screen. But that's just me.

    not yet. it's out of stock. They're basically a thin metal shell which is needed to clip on to each half, and then it's covered in silicone. So it's still ultimately a rigid case but with a soft outer cover.

    As long as it doesn't interfere with my InvisibleShield, I'm fine.

    the picture is off, but I bet it's just for color only, on ebay.

    Wrong type of case yuanli. These guys are looking for non-rigid options.
