    Has anyone tried any of the Innocase Lock Holster's before? They have one available now for the hero and I was wondering how secure the phone really is when it is in the holster.

    I am glad to hear they have an aluminum case on the way. Sure they are bulky but they sure save my mogul and my touch pro on several occasions.

    1. I have attached a lanyard to the lanyard attachment so it hangs around my neck to avoid any slips and falls.

    2. I have it inserted upsidedown in my Instinct case which allows me to attach the USB port easily. I place it in a top left or right pocket when not in use. If I stay with the Instinct case, I am thinking about drilling a small hole in the case to allow attachment to the external speaker jack.

    Any images of yours?

    As for the one I posted about, only thing lacking is a opening for the camera. But Its nothing an exacto knife modification can't handle. :)

    I would no way put it in my pocket with out some kind of cover like a zagg, body guardz, or the new thing coming out by Seidio innocase.
    I guard my phone like its precious, i have zagg 360 and a belt clip case.

    Thank you, twospirits! That's exactly the kind of case I was looking for myself! :)

    I got a screen protector from a kiosk in the mall
    kicks ass
    cost me 20 bucks but it makes the screen slicker and even more scratch proof

    I've got a Zagg full body shield for it, but I dropped it out of the car and it put a scratch where it wasn't protected :( So I had to buy a silicone case but I don't like it, it makes the phone look like a toy. The rubberized shield looks like the best so far. I haven't had good experience with the body glove cases.

    What rubberized shield are you talking about? I checked out the HTC case at BB today and liked that it was slimmer than the Sprint case but I feel like the Sprint case gives more protection. I would like a hard case that has a grippy feel too it though.

    I make my own holsters 'cause I typically don't like the commercially available ones. That, and I always end up with phones which are so new that there's nothing available for them yet. I'll be doing the same for my Hero, however I want it to fit the Hero while it's in a Seidio Innocase and I won't be getting mine until tomorrow or Saturday. Then the cutting, dying, and lacing begins.

    I've attached photos of the last one I made for my Touch Pro. It looks basically the same as the ones I've made for every phone I had since the Treo 300 and will almost certainly look the same as the one I'll make for my Hero.

    Not having a cell in over 7 years i jumped into the Sprint Hero with a Gel case. After a week of carrying it in my hand I decided to holster it. However I wanted a holster that fit my Hero with the Gel case still on it. So Gel case + screen protector + Holster

    No protection, front pants pocket, sometimes left, sometimes right but always with nothing else in the pocket. I drop it in my shirt pocket every now and again too, esp. when walking around the office - of course, that's how my touch pro went for a swim last week, so I should probably stop doing that.

    Ever since I got my first smartphone about 5 years ago it's always gone in the front left pocket, no case. I've tried belt clips and cases but I just don't like them.

    No problemo.
    Are you going to leave it as is or do the exacto knife treatment to make the hole in the back for the camera. I might do that.

    That's the one I was talking about. There are lots of different colors and they're cheap. I want something that's going to be slim yet still protect it. If they make real carbon fiber cases for our phones, I would definitely consider getting one.
