    Has anybody purchesd this cover and if so how do you like it. Is it grippy at all. Does it bulk up the phone too much?
    Thanks

    I purchased it when I got my phone and I love it. The phone is so thin that this case does not add much bulk to it. I like the kickstand also, I came from OG Evo so the kickstand was a must for me. I like the black carbon look and it's easier to grip with the case. About the only knock I have if its a knock at all is the bottom of the case sticks a little bit out at the very bottom, it does add maybe slight protection for the bottom of the phone, but the plastic is a little rough and sometimes when I hold the phone I rest it on my pinky, and it does irritate the skin a little, i'm getting more use to it, but I though it was worth mentioning.

    I bought one just to have a case on it until something from otterbox or preferably Ballistic comes out. I need a more rugged case. It does have a little "sticky" feel to it, I think it's made from vinyl AKA pleather. It's a nice case if you pocket your phone I lucked out and mine's not as sharp around the edges as some have confessed to. To knock off the rough edge maybe try a 600 grit sand paper of even a dremal with a polishing wheel.

    I was looking at this too as I was an Evo user that loved my kick stand, BUT I also want that car dock (not yet released) for it and I am betting the car dock won't allow the room for that kickstand cover. Toss up which I'd use more.

    Probably will not, it would be nice if it does.

    I also came from the EVO 4G and had the kickstand, but I never found myself "needing" the kickstand. It was always more of a novelty to me and I rarely used it. I travel for work as well and use my phone on the plane and just didn't like it sitting way down on the tray-table anyways. That is just my opinion so I don't think I would get this case, however it is nice to hear it is well built!

    I probably wouldn't have bought this case but I got the 25% discount on it so I tried it. I like it except that it's hard to feel the volume rockers with your thumb because they are right up close to the case. I think I would prefer a softer case as well but I didn't like the silicone ones they had at the Sprint Store with the light purple back. UGLY IMHO.

    great case so far. Coming from the evo 4g I appreciate the kick stand more than I thought.

    Has anyone tried to remove this kickstand from this case and "clip" it on the naked phone itself? Just had that thought today as I was looking at the case at my local Sprint store.
    Might have to try it myself, but I didn't want to pay Sprint's price for it if all I end up doing is tearing it up! ;)

    Thanks a lot!!! :D Looks neat... I might get this and maybe slap on an invisible shield on the glass... And yea, from the pics, it could use some sanding around the volume/pwr button...

    Does the micro usb cable charge too, or is it only data capable ? Thanks again!

    I bought this case as well and I love it. I hated the phone without a case, the back cover felt very slippery and almost like my hands were wet when holding it for a few min. this case adds a few mm of thickness but i like it, and the phone feels a little heftier now which is a good thing.
