    Just received the OtterBox Commuter and a armband by Tune Belt. All via Amazon.

    The case is really nice looking! I first tried the Defender version, and disliked the covers over the outlets, and the overall feel. The commuter is slimmed down, fits nicely in my pocket.
    Also it makes hitting the power button and volume rocker MUCH easier!!
    Only sucky thing was the screen protector that came with it has a little exterior paper tab that doesn't like to come off, and is now a gooey mess.

    The armband originally was for my wife's Iphone 4S which is housed in a Otterbox Defender. She didnt like how snug it was in the case! ok...
    Mine now!!!! The Rezound w/ case fits GREAT!

    I don't normally like cases on my phones, especially big phones like this one and previously my Droid x, wasted probably $100 on cases for the Droid x just to have them sit in a junk drawer. However the otter box commuter looks nice and I'm really tempted. Especially since this phone doesn't appear to have a real metal frame or Bezel.

    I may give it a try. Been using a htc leather wallet type case, which keeps the phone protected when in my pocket or just carrying it but it is quite bulky in pocket. The only real problem is when it's not in use it's not as likely to be dropped. So in some ways it's not as useful as an actual case. Hmm decisions decisions.

    Amazon is sold out of commuters. I really want one. I have the extended battery, but was consistently getting 24-30 hours per charge, so I switched back to the regular battery to see if it will go a full day. Now I really need the commuter because I don't like my phone being naked.

    Any pics of the phone in the case? Not a whole lot to be found online.

    I just thought of something, I've got a back up battery on the way, how tough I'd it to take off and put back on?

    Its like having a jelly case then adding a hard shell around it.
    It'll take you 10 seconds to get off, 20 to get on. And that's being generous

    Thanks. No worries. I saw one in stock for a third party but I've had better luck with stuff directly from amazon plus I have a prime account for free 2 day shipping.

    I have one on my phone and love it. Everything fits very well, and it looks great as well, has grooves on the back that mimic the stock back. Also the power/volume buttons are 10x easier to press now!!

    Try looking on ebay. I got mine there for $22 with free shipping (brand new in box.) They have plenty

    Do you know which Tune Belt model you are using for your Rezound? I just got a wireless set of headphones and need some way to carry my phone while I run. I've heard mixed reviews on many of the armbands, but if you like yours and it protects the phone I might give it a try. Does your phone fit in the Tune belt with a case, or nekkid? Thanks...

    Rezound is the best phone ever...
