    I've been looking quite a bit and can't come up with any cases for the Aria. Besides the typical silicone cases, is there anything worthwhile out yet?

    I've been looking for some cases also and I found a clear shock absorbing finger print proof and scratch proof snap on case. It was like $20-$25 though.

    Found a few on Amazon under the Amzer name anything from snap-on to silicone "jelly" Sleeves. When I checked they weren't shipping till this weekend, but haven't checked lateley. Prices started at about $12.00 and the also had screen protectors.

    Edit:Just Checked Amazon now it says 1 to 3 month

    I'd like to be able to try a case on before buying it. I hope some stores get them soon, I'm getting tired of waiting. I can't even find a stupid invisible shield for it.

    I thought I saw some cases at my local Best Buy. I'm still deciding which phone to buy, so I did not look at the cases closely. I just made a note to come back if I decide to buy the Aria.

    Here is a little tip, when you go to get accessories for your phone also ask for HTC Intruder accessories because they will work just fine. I got my case and invisible shield today because I didn't realize at the time they were the same.

    Which does a better job of protecting phones: snap on or silicone?

    I'd personally go with silicone. Rubber should be able to absorb the impact better. Thats just my opinion

    thats the one i bought fomr my wife and i off ebay, she got her red one, but i havent gotten my black yet.

    it seems ok, it's not a real tight fit, but it's not like it's going to fall off. also her's doesnt look like it does in the pic...it does not have those extra rubber bumpers on the corners...even though the pic showed that on ebay too. also it has the amzer name on the back.

    hopefully mine actually looks like it does in the pic.

    So with all the talk about the Aria screens breaking I've been trying to buy a case. Let's face it, everyone drops their phone at least once, and I just don't want to chance it. I've gone to two AT&T locations and a Best Buy in Nashville and have found zero Aria cases.

    I went online and just bought a ZAGG screen protector, but that's to protect it from scratches. I knew AT&T's website and the only decent Aria case for sale by TPU, so I was like, well I'll just order it if I can't find one in town. Well now, AT&T is out of stock, so I search the web with no luck. No other TPU cases for the Aria!

    All I an find is those fugly Amzer cases....I didn't buy a nice phone to make it look like something I got from the Wal-Mart clearance bin.

    Why are the there so few Aria accessories?

    FWIW - I have the AT&T TPU case and although I didn't like the price, I'm very happy with it. It is a perfect fit. As someone else mentioned, it covers the top on/off switch and you have to press a little harder, but prefer that the switch be covered. BTW, TPU = thermoplastic polyurethane; its the material, not a brand name. I also have the Zagg screen-only protector. Went on without a problem, didn't like the initial "tacky" feeling, but that seems to have subsided or I have gotten used to it. I would have preferred an anti-reflective one, maybe next time.

    Yes although it did take about a month to get it.I called them and they said they were waiting on the cases to be made and they were trying to fill the orders asap.I actually ordered one from att also because it was taking so long to get the amzer case so now i have 2.I guess ill save the att one for a spare.
    If you know anyone that works for the postal service they can get a 50% discount on all att accessories.

    I like the look of your argyle case! I found a plain black off brand rubber case at best buy that I got but I hate it. It has a rubber bar that goes over the att and htc logos on the front that make it hard to pull the notification bar down on the screen.

    I'm hoping cheapdroids.com comes through and gets me the case I ordered so I can take this one back. I am tempted to get the argyle one now too though, haha.
