    I just recently purchased the Ballistic SG case from Amazon ( Amazon.com: Ballistic SA0588-M005 Case for HTC ThunderBolt SG - 1 Pack - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories ). It came today and so far is pretty good. It's a bit bulky, and makes the device about 7/8" thick, but provides good corner protection. There are two layers of protection (although the amazon description says 3), a soft gel layer and a polycarbonate hard shell that goes over it. The gel cover has a cutout for the kickstand, but unfortunately renders it useless because the hinge is covered so it cant be used. The outer shell, however, has its own kickstand (plastic). The kickstand works fine, but it cant be used in portrait position. It goes in the same direction as the one on the device, so you cant use the USB port while it's propped up. The ports are all easily accessible and the the volume rocker/power button are also easily accessible. Also, the back isnt completely flat, since there's a little lip where the kickstand is, so it wobbles a bit when it's laid down on its back.
