    I am wondering if anyone is using a tpu case for the fascinate. Had lunch with my stepmother today and she had one for her ipod and thought it looked good. If you are what do you think? do you have pics of it?

    I have one on mine and really like it. I also have the kickstand case and it's nice as well. I'm having a hard time deciding on what kind of case I want. Sometimes I just go naked with my steinheil screen protector and bought an extra battery cover for 4 bucks in case I scratch my current one up. Sorry, back to the TPU case. I got the smoked one and its got a kind of argyle design on the back, but it's semi-transparent. It's pretty thin and doesn't add much bulk at all. I love the feel of it. It's grippy but not sticky. It actually makes the phone feel more solid. The only complaint I have is that the power button and volume keys are covered. It makes it a little harder to press the power button to unlock, but I'm getting more used to it.

    I have a couple of hard cases that I ordered from the same seller on ebay to see how they work out. I think I'm going to end up staying with the TPU case in the end and may go naked every now and then too. It's a really nice case. Don't think you can go wrong trying it out for under 5 bucks.

    I really like my TPU case. Like Simbany1 I ordered a few extra backs for 4 bucks each so I can run naked when Im in the mood.

    When it's naked, it feels so nice (despite being a slippery little devil). The TPU case doesn't add too much and actually feels good in the hand, but there's nothing like a naked fascinate..:)

    Halcyon, sorry to hear about your issues with the Innocase. Hopefully Seidio will help you out and maybe it was only your case. Keep us posted in your other thread to let us know what they do for you and how the next case is.

    Well got the tpu case today and it does not fit my phone correctly. It is a little too big. Will not stay on the phone and gaps along the side. contacted the seller and they said send it back. Kinda disapointing. Anyone else have fit problems. The clear one in the mall I tried fit tight and did not have any issues.

    No issues here. They might have sent you the wrong one. Seriously fits like a glove.

    Where did you get yours from? The package says samsung fascinate 1500 all holes line up just does not fit right. If I could get good pics I would post them.

    gee.. what is it about this phone that makes me want to keep buying things? I just gave in and ordered a TPU case for mine too. mine is purple argyle style. I was looking at the pink ones too (my other cases are all shades of pink) but decided I wanted a change from pink.. but I still do like to stay just a little girly, after all. Hope it fits now, though... (this after playing with (and setting up) my dad's fascinate that has a softer case on it (don't know if it is TPU, but it was nice feeling)

    I dont really care for that case. Much prefer the tpu cases. They are thin and protect really well.

    OK good news and bad news. Purchased a smoke, black, and blue. The black and smoke fit perfectly. The blue is same brand that did not fit. It is zizo or z1zo brand. Hopefully the 2 blue ones I am purchasing from Amazon will fit. They are cut like the smoke and black that fit perfectly.

    Can you post pics of your case. I am curious how the purple really looks like.

    Got mine off Amazon for $3.00, Made by Lux, ships from SF Planet. Nice smoke clear with an argyle pattern on the back. Fits great, very natural as if there is no case on at all. Does not collect lint like silicone, smooth with grip. Will not slide on the console, can shoulder hold and talk without slippage. Elegant, effective, and very inexpensive.

    OK here are the two blue ones that did not work. They were too big and did not fit snug.

    They are now $1.97 on Amazon, you are losing money not buying one.

    Problem is I have a black and a smoke that fits perfectly. 2 out of the 4 cases I have purchased have not fit and they are blue. I have an obsession with blue and really need a blue tpu case that fits perfectly. I have ordered 2 more blue ones that are cut how my black and smoke are so hopefully these fit.

    Finally my search for a blue tpu case that fits is over. I found a blue diamond and a blue argyle tpu case on amazon.com that fit perfectly. It seems the ones that are cut in a t shape around the camera fit where the rectangle ones I have tried dont. Here is a link to the ones that work perfectly.

    I would love to see how a purple one looks like on the phone and an orange and green one. Problem is I can only find the green and orange ones with the full rectangle cutout and I am nervous purchasing another one of those as the 2 I had dont fit.

    What I don't get is how there isn't a plain clear one. There's a clear argyle and a plain smoke, but no plain clear.
