    Can someone please tell me who owns this case if they get dust into your phone screen when this case is on? Or does it protect it from that? (someone who puts this phone into their pocket with this case all the time)...


    Thanks!!!

    Also, is a screen protector needed if I use this case and put it in my pocket?

    Dust works its way into the crack between the case and the phone, and I see some in the crevices where the screen glass meets the plastic of the phone bezel, but I haven't had any dust get inside the screen after two weeks of keeping it in my front pocket with the Body Glove case.

    I don't believe a screen protector is necessary if you are fastidious about not having anything hard/sharp in the same pocket as your phone. Glass is not easy to scratch with anything short of metal or other glass. I've been using my iTouch for about six months this way and the screen glass is pristine. (Now the chrome on the back is another matter!)

    I went to two att stores today and they said they didn't carry it. I ended up trying my luck at bestbuy, and they had one last one :)

    My phone feels a little heavier and feels more substantial with the cover on. I have clear coat on my phone, and now I feel safe shoving it into my pocket/holster.

    Finally found this case, after my AT&T store never had it, and the Best Buy down the road also had none. Not a bad case, was worried that it would be to "gel-ly", the last soft case I had was on a Blackberry and that only slid into my pocket easily after getting a good deal of dust covering the silicone. This slides in nice and easily, and coupled with the screen protector from AT&T my phone is completely covered now.
    Only thing I don't like about it is that it covers up the Galaxy S on the back so no one will ask me about my phone now!

    I picked up the body glove case at my local ATT store a few days ago, IMHO considering what is out there right now in terms of cases for the captivate, this one of the better bets. It gives nice protection for the phone without making the phone feel to "big". It fits nicely in the hand as well. I think one of the biggest positives is that it does not get stuck when taking it in/out of pockets :)
    +1 for body glove.

    Well, the Body Glove case isn't silicone... it's some other rubber/plastic material.

    I love the body glove case. Unlike the hard cases, it actually feels like it would deaden a fall - which is the main reason why I want it.

    I did have to enlarge the hole around the USB connector because the charger cord wasn't fitting right.

    I got Ghost Armor and the body glove case. Feels great and it fits PERFECTLY in the verizon droid x swivel leather case. I like having my phone in a case on my belt.

    I've had my body glove for 3-4 days now.. I noticed that attracts alot of dust and particles on the inside (back of the phone) and when dust gets on the screen, you can't really wipe it off since the case is in the way... Slightly irritating. But it will definitely protect it against small falls.. But I'm not sure if the dust build up is worth the protection (i probably wouldn't drop it if it didn't have the case anyway)

    I just bought mine at best buy (ATT didnt have it) and I like it so far. I'm never a fan of cases, but because the captivate is already thin and light (too thin and light), it feels more natural to me. Wish the whole backside was a "soft touch" instead of stripped plastic

    Has anyone tried this case in conjunction with the screen protectors from AT&T? I was thinking of picking up the Body Glove and the 3 pack of screen protectors for $10...will the case still fit with the screen protector on? I want some definite coverage for my device.

    My entire captivate is covered with clear-coat (which is similar to the invisible shield) and the body glove fit over it easily. Screen protectors are pretty thin so you should be fine lol

    Birdsonbat, let us know how slippery/grippy the galaxy S case from Samsung is when you get it please. It looks interesting but I like to have grip on a case because I tend to text and stuff one handed a lot.

    Yes it will fit fine. The screen protector doesn't quite make it to the edge of the Body Glove case. There's just the tiniest fraction of a millimeter gap around... hardly measurable on the sides, a tad more on the top (just shy of 1mm), and maybe 2mm on bottom below the 4 soft buttons.

    Anyone using the Body Glove snap on hard case with the removable clip here? It looks pretty beefy. I work outside a lot and I'm not convinced the mirage case is enough protection. Let me know what you think.

    Avoid the Zagg screen protectors like the plague. They have the worst orange peel effect i've found.

    The Tessco screen protectors that AT&T stores sell 3 for $9.99 are great. Perfectly cut, easy to apply, and very clear. There is a slight oil slick effect if you hold it up to a fluorescent light, but in natural light you can't see it at all.

    I got it for $15.85 from OEMCell on Ebay with free shipping. I LOVE it too, it protects it so well, yet adds hardly any bulk to it, and it has a good grip to it. I have an SGP Steinheil Ultra Crystal Screen Protector on it as well, I am VERY impressed with the SGP's.

    I love it. Wasnt to crazy with the weird design on the back at first, but it's actually pretty nice.

    So I bought the body glove snap on case, and while it is nice and I loved the stand/clip, I hated the extra bulk it added, and when using the belt clip the phone sticks out on your side WAY to far.. I kept hitting it with my arm and bumped it on a door jam one time, so I ended up getting the Mirage case and LOVE IT. I went to the verizon store and purchased a leather pouch for the Droid X and couldn't be happier with the combination.
