Ok, so maybe garbage is too strong a word, but it suffers from a single, fatal flaw. At the top, where the spring clip is supposed to slide over the phone and snap into place, the case/holster interface is rubber on rubber. This means the holster's clip doesn't slide smoothly and it folds the inner layer of the case over the back of the phone. Of course you can negate this by being very careful and using two hands (one to open the clip, one to slide the phone in), but that negates the whole purpose of this setup. It's going back to Amazon. Too bad, I really liked the Active case otherwise, especially in white. I've gone back to naked with Seidio spring clip holster. That means I was still facing the original problem that caused me to get the case in the first place- the camera sticks out and eventually will get scratched to hell, and the phone doesn't sit level on a desk. If you guys ask nicely, I'll post pics of my ugly (but perfectly functional) homemade Sugru camera protector.
