In the market for cases. Lets see yours.
I jut have the hard plastic one that was at the store with the gel cover behind (red) it is a good hard case to behind it.Don't need much more. I wanna Skin it tho ha.
Waiting on Case-Mate's Barely There cases to come out.
HTC Thunderbolt Pop! case by Case-Mate
I just went with the basic gel case from the VZW store. Fits well and isn't too hard to take on/off.
Well, I may receive flack for this but I really got used to a leather "messenger pouch" for my BB Storm. I don't like holsters, clips or the rubbery body molds (and will be using dock when avail so don't want to have to take something off every day). Obviously, those rubber ones offer at least some protection if the bare phone is dropped. But, they also look like they can add considerable bulk for pocketing. I have seen one or two that look very slender - like the one Yellow Snowman posted above (pricey tho @ $35+ship) - I'll reconsider when I see the pouch.
I pocket my phone. These are NOT popular (and offer no protection when phone is out of the case) but I found one similar for the HTC HD2 and the TB is only .09" thicker. After shopping, best price is here: HTC T-Mobile HD2 / T8585 OEM Messenger Pouch -TheCellGuru.com Ordered one.
Still waiting on Otterbox to release theirs...
I'm not going to lie, I find it VERY frustrating that they cannot comment on when they will be making a release. I desperately want/need my phone covered, but am not going to spend $30 on a Seidio and wait a week for it to arrive, only to see the Otterbox's being released less than an additional week later.
This is a MAJOR failure on their part. They should have had a case ready to go. Now the crush of people that bought this device are going to buy an alternative like the Seidio and unless the OB comes out by March 30 (which I doubt) - 14 days after the TB went on sale and past the return period....no one is going to go and buy an Otterbox when they already bought another case. Bad business. The person responsible for this delay and failure to get it to market at a time when case purchasing will spike at probably its highest level for this device...should be fired.
Mine should be here today. I got it in white.
Great point. I wanted the Active X from Seidio, but it's still "Coming Soon." So I ordered the Case-Mate Pop case because it was similar. I'm just one customer, but the longer these companies wait, more people will be finding alternatives.
I got my el-cheapo case off of eBay almost a month before the T-Bolt was released. It might be cheap, but it works and it fits like a glove. I don't get why the bigger companies couldn't have been, or are at least not ready now.
I got the 'body glove' off the rack case from the VZW store.
I snapped a few pics of it on the phone and one that shows the top part removed.
The phone fits inside and it snaps together.

No, I am not mr. blurrycam.
I just suck at taking pics.
Alright I just got my case-mate pop and I am really liking it so far. Its not much bigger then the innocase II if its bigger at all. Its got a great grip and the holds the phone in it pretty well. My only complaint so far is the power button is a bit harder to hit then before but Im sure I will get used to it.
Heres a link to a few pics of the case compared to the innocase.
Will any of these phone molded cases fit into the cradle? I know, the cradle is not out yet but I have never heard of any of these actually fitting into a cradle. I'd get one for more protection, but don't want to have to remove it every night. And, I will soon have and use the leather messenger I posted above but that does not offer any protection when phone is out of it. The Pop case might fit in the messenger pouch. If it works in cradle, Id use both.
Is the plastic like a shiny plastic? Mine will be here in like the next hour, but I was scoping out your pics.
Yeah its glossy shiny plastic. One of the nicest cases I have used.
I just got mine and installed it. I'm noticing the same thing with the power button. My only concern is whether or not it'll be a PITA to take off. It seemed like kind of a tight fit getting it in to begin with, which I guess is a good thing since it's secure.
I have taken mine out a couple times and its been easy. If you hold it at the bottom and push at the kickstand it comes out pretty easily.
Good deal. I figured that would be the easiest. It does add a tiny bit of bulk, but I was using an Amzer before which added pretty much nothing. After a few days, I don't think it'll be noticeable. I like it, though. It seems pretty durable.
