    Hi

    I just saw that these cases are available. anyone has one? is the back thick enough to allow for the camera to NOT sit on surfaces like it does now??

    Thanks.

    Just ordered one last night and it shipped today. From the pics it looks like the case completely goes over the protruding camera so it will be well protected.

    I hope you're right. I will wait to see what you find out.

    Just received it today. Pretty much the same as the cheap eBay ones but instead of the large cutout for the camera, it covers it with a lip and has separate holes for the LEDs and speaker. Also the kickstand cutout is very narrow and a little difficult to get the kickstand out. I have to use my pinky. Overall it is very thin but nothing too crazy different from the $7 eBay cases.

    You should be able to push on the opposite side of the kickstand to pop it out

    I got a jell case made by HTC from my local sprint store. It fits well and looks good.... and when the phone is on its back does not allow the lense to touch the surface. I paid 11$.

    And after a little while the phone becomes a pita to get in and out of your pocket casue its so grippy. I got the cheap ebay $7 case a couple days aho and its way better than the silicone case from sprint. I got so sick of the silicone case i tok it off and took my chances till the ebay one came in.

    I have the BarelyThere case and love it. It super snug. Yes the opening is a little narrow with regards to the kickstand, but the case is definitely as thin as you are going to find. I didnt realize it was coming with a screen protector as well, so thats a plus. I recommend it.

    Pictures?

    How much 'bulk' does it add to the phone?

    Best I could where I am right now:

    As for bulk, lets put it this way, the case is about 1/2 - 2/3 as thick as a credit card. Any thinner and it would be a piece of paper.
