    What is the best non-bulky case? I don't want to use a wallet or pouch style one..
    I was looking at the Seidio Innocase Surface, is that the best one? I heard however that this case makes it really hard to slide the keyboard out..

    What do you guys recommend?

    I'm using the Seidio and really enjoy it. I don't use the keyboard for anything but NES and SNES so I don't have a good answer for you.

    I'll second the Seido Innocase. I have had it for the past 2-3 weeks. Adds very little bulk. Slider was just a little stiffer at first but it works just fine now. The case also comes off easily when you need access to the battery or SD card. I had the clear hard plastic case from Verizon originally and it was a pain to get off the phone. This case is thinner, looks better and provides good protection for the phone.

    probably as mentioned above, but I got a soft case with a hook that I can attach to my coat. Made a slit in the side for the car charger wire since it is paired with the bluetooth. Looks like an short eyeglass case. Found it in Walmart under $5.

    im just afraid the keyboard will be a factor in the long run and become more loose due to the friction of the innocase..

    anyone have any real experience with the phantomskinz or invisibleSHIELD? do they both require u to wet the phone?

    i kind of want to keep the phone naked as much as possible,,,

    Do the case work with the Moto Multimedia Desktop station?

    unfortunately, i have had experience with phantomskinz. don't get me wrong, phantomskinz as a brand is great, a real head and shoulders above others of its kind... but the skins for the droid are just not cut precisely. and i, being a perfectionist, tried to just get the screen piece on right. having to rewet and squeegee the skin only to find it doesn't cover the soft touch buttons or covers the earpiece caused my droid to become irreparably damaged, as water got under the screen and damaged the touch screen interface. of course, verizon's warranty doesn't cover water damage, so i had to buy another droid. IMHP, you'd be better off finding an actual case, perhaps a gel case.

    seidio innocase is AWESOME. Great feels, adds almost NOTHING to the phone. It does not fit in the multimedia dock last i heard. I did hear that you can pop off the back cover of the case (really easy to do) and it can fit in the car dock! maybe that can also work for the multimedia dock but I am not sure. Its definitely worth the investment and can definitely take a hit! I've dropped the phone 3 times now at a height of 2-4feet and all three times the case takes the impact and flies off while the phone is gracefully ejected out of the case and lands undamaged. I've had no issues with the keyboard at all. There are no friction problems, my thumbs can access the keyboard keys great and it makes the keyboard slide a little bit stiffer but thats a welcome addition since before the case Id find the phone sliding halfway open in my pocket.

    all in all seidio case rocks i give it a 6 out of 5.

    in the other thread on the seidio, the person said he's been using the innocase and although his keyboard was fine prior to using the case, the case caused the keyboard to become loose because of the friction or whatever..

    any word on this? i dont want to get the case if its going to loosen my keyboard over a period of time.
