    I have a silicone and Bodyglove case for my hero. I'm starting to grow tired of the bodyglove (if anyone wants one let me know :D) and have been looking at the Commuter Otterbox cases. I was wondering if anyone with the case could post up any pictures they might have. I'm curious how form fitting it is, as well as how thick it is on the phone. Thanks

    I could take pictures but there is already an otter box thread up and running with some on there. But a quick overview: It is a thicker than normal silicone cover (not extremely bulky just thicker than generic silicone covers) with a hard shell back cover that goes over the silicone. It allows the camera lens to be recessed into the cover. The volume buttons are bigger due to the silicone cover. There are silicone plugs for the headset hole and the usb port. The otter box web site does a good job of displaying the case also. In the otter box thread on here, there is mention that some other cellular sites have discounted prices so check out this thread.

    It is incredibly form fitting. Exact fit. However, the only camera I have with me is the one built into the Hero. ;)

    It doesn't cover the camera, it just has a recess to protect the lense.

    Yes it may but if you drop it without a case there is a good chance that you will end up with a refurb like me. I don't have the pic right now but imagine a shattered screen up near the earpiece. The case would have stopped that little adventure. With the case on it @till fits in an Instinct sleeve but is super thight.
