    Hello, I was just wondering if any manufacturers are making cases that fit the ridges and make the back either curved or flat? I'm not a big fan of the ridges, however, haven't seen them in person yet. Also, no rubber cases. I hate getting dust and lint stuck all over them!

    Haven't seen any yet, and I've been searching. I don't want a case, just a battery cover that looks somewhat normal. I'm sure it won't take too long!

    I like the ridges! It adds a uniqueness to the phone that really... stands alone.

    My girlfriend likes that it's "Ridged for her pleasure"

    I like it, too.

    It has definitely grew on me as well.

    C'mon, it gives the phone some "flare" and "character"

    I just wish the phone wouldn't rock. seems like a silly design.

    I guess it makes it easier for skin/case makers, though.

    Yeah that was a bit annoying. I got the silicone high gloss case and now it sits normal

    The OtterBox cases may be smooth, now sure though.

    edit

    I should add that I like the ridges also, I like that our phone doesn't look like every other phone.

    I actually thought I wouldn't like it. The pictures make it look so much more imposing. But I found after getting it that they aren't as pronounced as I thought they'd be. Really not bad at all. IMHO of course.

    +1 Billion. I waited for days contemplating the back because I thought I was gonna hate it but it is far less pronounced than I had expected. Its a win imo.

    You know, the Nazis had pieces of flair that they made the Jews wear.

    I have black/red gradient case from vzw and altho it still has the ridges they aren't as bad as stock, BUT... I like the ridges, they're really good for gripping and look pretty cool too.

    Jesus, some of you are just too picky. Flustered because the phone isn't completely flat...

    I honestly think some folks just want an iPhone with it's smooth back. I like not having a phone that looks like every other phone; the ridges are pretty cool and feel good in my hand while I'm reading the NY Times on my Incredible while on the train on my way to work.

    Things that make people not want to come to AFs:
    People hijacking posts
    People being rude

    ^That's really about it b/c everything else is great.

    Unfortunately almost everyone that posted here has basically ignored the OPs request and opted to discuss the merits of the ridges that the Incredible sports (aka hijacking). Out of 22 response posts, only 4 have actually made an attempt to address his question. If that doesn't frustrate the OP then he's a better man or woman than me. Please don't take offense to this, I'm just suggesting it's something to think about.

    As for flat cases, the only one I noticed that was completely flat was the "Body Glove Rubber Snap On Cover with Belt Clip".
