    What cases is everyone using? I am thinking about picking up the Blue Seidio Active X when it comes out. Not fully decided yet. I would like some input from those who have cases. Thanks! Here is the link for it BTW seidioonline.com

    I ordered the black active X case but I have to return it. I'll have to run the extended battery and I don't think I'll be able to modify the active X case.

    I really like the Active X case.

    For those that are ordering through Seidio Online, use promo code "Laptop" for 10% off your order.

    I bought the black one, and I agree. It's a great case. And I don't like cases.

    Do you have the Active-X case?

    If so, is it pocketable?
    Does it stick to the inside of your pocket a lot?

    I wear jeans to work everyday, and that is my concern that it won't come in and out of my pocket easily. But I really like the look of the Active-X case.

    black matte tpu case for $3.99 on amazon. spending $25-75 on a case seems crazy to me.

    I go naked except for a screen protector. Just ordered the Seidio belt clip holster. This thing is on the border of being too big for my hands and a case would put it over the edge for me.

    With that said, if I were going to use a case, I would probably get a Seidio Innocase/holster combo. For ultimate protection, Otterbox would be a great choice.

    ^^^Me too! Got the purple one :) I really like this case and I also don't usually put cases with my phone. It was hard to take it off the first time I put it on the phone, but since then, I've taken it off a couple of times and now it's just easy to pull apart.

    Just got my Active-X... Had the Active-X on my EVO before switching to TB. Fits fine, is pocketable... kick stand is a little difficult to get to with the case on though.

    For somebody that uses the kickstand all the time, do you think we should pass on this case?? When the kick stand is out does it sit just as steady on the table?? Does the silicone stick in the pocket?? Thanks.

    Cool.

    I am on the fence between the Active-X and the CaseMate-Pop. But the Active-x just looks like a better fit judging by pictures I've seen.

    i use the kickstand all the time... i prop the phone up just to charge it. by all means, you can still use the kickstand and it shouldn't be a major issue. i just wanted to note that if you have short fingernails, you might have a harder time fishing up the kick stand because the kickstand is a little more recessed with the case on.

    it seems just as sturdy with the case on, both in portrait and landscape... Should go in/out of jean pockets with no issue.

    I had the Active X for my Inc and I just got the Pop for my Bolt yesterday. They are both awesome cases and I don't think you can go wrong. For both phones I was looking for a good quality product with good protection and is easy enough to get on and off since I change batteries two times a day. Both fit the bill. Both feel like an extension of the phone and not some slippery, poor fitted knock-off. I think you will be happy with either.

    I suppose it is worth mentioning that I LOVE the pop case I have on the Bolt and don't regret the move one bit.

    I was debating between the Case-Mate Pop & the Seidio Active X. In the end it was the fact that the Pop was available (end of last week) and that it was a combo (soft inner / shell outer) that was a SINGLE PIECE...

    I saw youtube review of the Active X where, in places that weren't directly pressed upon by the outer shell (which is a separate piece from the inner neoprene sleeve), it would become loose (Note: This was not the Active X for the TB. It was the iPhone or Dinc, I don't recall). I don't know this happens due to personal experience, it's simply something I saw...

    I've had Seidio cases in the past & they were solid, well designed, well made units, and had Case-Mate not had the Pop I would have gone w/ the Active X from Seidio w/o hesitation.

    All that being said, I wouldn't trade the Pop for any other case ATM...It becomes one w/ the phone, and the kickstand is unencumbered...which is huge, cuz my phone is always on it, and I'm constantly picking it up, closing the KS, checking mail or text, opening the KS and setting it down again. If this process was hindered at all it would drive me nuts...

    my 2 pence...

    I tried the innocase II surface in the sapphire blue...

    I am simply not a case guy. I like my phone naked.

    I am waiting on my Innocase II in black from Amazon. In the meantime I picked up a cheap silicone case that I actually am starting to like on it. I tried going without one, but was nervous I would drop it.

    I decided to go caseless but I got the Ghost Armor on there, and Ive dropped my phone a few times with no problems. Sometimes theres just too many things in your hands at one time...lol.
