    I got this over the weekend too. I like it because it the case part doesn't add a lot of bulk to the phone, and because the holster is also pretty slim. This phone is HUGE (one of my few somewhat-beefs) and I don't want to add even more to the size.

    Looks like the Cruzer Lite cases in new colors will ready to ship on the 13th. I tried ordering 3 cases using the BUY2GONE code to get one free but Amazon will not allow the code if it's not in stock.

    Anyone know of a horizontal leather case (preferred) that will fit the Droid Razr Maxx while its rocking the Diztronic Matte Black or the Cruzer Lite series cases?

    Thanks in advance!

    It's the 13th, the other colors of the Cruzer Lite cases are "in stock", and I still can't use the "BUY2GONE" code. Also, their website's "Contact Us" section still shows up as template text.

    This is really irritating, because I wanted to get a red, purple, and black one. Anyone else know what's going on with those? I really do love those cases.

    The ones that show as not shipping from Amazon are the ones that aren't allowing the B2G1 or free shipping. I'd like to know when/if that will change, because I want me some orange and smoke. :)

    I got the matte TPU case by diztronic as well as the gel case from Verizon. I have the Diztronic case on now and it really feels good to the touch. I am impressed with it so far. Doesnt add any bulk to it and its still slim and fit. My wife didnt even know the case was on.

    The promotion says you have to buy 2 of ONE color to get the 3rd free.

    EDIT: NVM, contradicting.

    I also had problems as the promo wouldn't apply.

    Ok, the only way I got the promo code to work on the Cruzer cases w/ the BUY2GONE code was to click on the option where you can add 3 together to your cart. Only problem is those 3 are blue, green, and red. Amazon needs to fix this.

    Thanks for your post. I too ordered one the other night. Should be here by tomorrow or Friday.

    Do you happen to know of any leather horizontal cases that the MAXX will fit into with this case installed?

    Thanks!

    I know this isn't a real solution, but if you select the purple one, there's another choice: red, purple, and teal. I was frustrated enough that I went for this (and honestly I was considering teal over black anyway), so I'm happy, even though it doesn't fix the principle of the thing.

    What I really don't understand is why the black and white cases are Prime-eligible and all that (and "fulfilled by Amazon") and the colored ones aren't when they all show Cruzer Lite as the seller. It's particularly vexing because they all indicate that you should use that same promo code. It's just very, very strange.

    That's great news! I loved my Seidio Active case on my Incredible. It eventually peeled and cracked in a spot after dropping it for the hundredth time.. but the feel and overall protection was perfect.

    Looks like Amazon and Cruzer Lite are on the same page. You can now order 2 cases, get one free. Bought 3 this morning for less than $20 plus free 2 day shipping with my prime account. These will do until Case Mate or Incipio come out with their slim cases.

    Yay! Just ordered 3 with free shipping (and I don't have Prime) for colors that weren't allowing it before.

    Received my Cruzer Lite cases today and they are surprisingly thinner than I expected. Here is a pic with the black gloss case. I also have the green and smoke colors. Considering I prefer very thin cases like the Case Mate Barely There case, these will do since it looks like there aren't many options...plus the android on the back is cool.

    Sorry for the poor pics, took them with my iPad.

    That does look pretty cool. Looks thin like the Diztronic and VZW TPU Gel models.

    I read reviews & searched for a case for my new RAZR Maxx & got this:
    Diztronic High Gloss Black Flexible TPU Case for Motorola Droid Razr Maxx [ONLY FOR MAXX VERSION] $8.90 from either Amazon or direct from Diztronic. It is great. Hardly adds any bulk. Holes & notches line up perfectly. Tight fit. I emailed them to ask about hi gloss vs. Matte & slipperiness & fingerprints. Reply was that Gloss is less slippery & some report matte is easier to drop (The employe didn't think it was that easy to drop but that is what some report) but matte is the most popular. Gloss shows fingerprints more. The Smoke gloss shows fingerprints a bit less but still shows. Smoke is translucent & you can see the Kevlar pattern & logos through it. Can see photos on Amazon or Diztronic.

    My 1st post so, not allowed to post links.

    Now to find a good screen protector. I bought a 3 pack on Amazon for only $2.25 & free S&H!
    It's not good! Air Bubbles & scratches!

    Motorola Droid Razr MiniSuit Screen Protector/LCD Guard Ultra-Clear, Anti-scratch, with Microfiber cloth, Set of 3 Replacement Films (Clear)

    Claims that sold me:

    I got the Otterbox Commuter yesterday from Amazon. Great fit, I don't like the screen saver, can't get rid of some of the air bubbles.
