    I'm a case junkie. My husband thinks I have a serious problem. He might be right. I found some really neat looking cases on eBay. They're not rugged by any means, but cool, nonetheless. The seller has great feedback, and they're only $4.99. :cool: I ordered one in "smoke" to check it out. I figure if there are noticeable seam lines, they'll be less noticeable with this color. If it's awesome, I'm getting the purple one, too. :eek:

    I like that! I was actually looking to something similar to the Verizon gel case. I had one for my X and liked the design on it. I just didn't think they were worth $20. That and the hybrid cases.

    on the ebay ones... do they really have that ugly red piece on the back of their plain cases? that would be awful. if not, i would consider it. guess, i'll have to message them and find out

    The ones I bought did not, but I saw what you were talking about. I think it was just a sticker.

    I just received the two I ordered and I'm very impressed for $4.99! They are actually really nice cases. They fit really well and all of the cutouts are in the right places. It's part TPU, part hard plastic. I think it was definitely worth the money.

    I purchased the black and clear s-line case from this seller. Excellent quality. Not sure about the matte tpu or that stupid red tag in the middle though. thats looks ******ed.

    I would also HIGHLY recommend case mates PoP case. absolutely phenomenal case. I dropped it on a treadmill and it shot into a wall with the pop case on and it did a great job protecting my case.

    Anyone familiar with Ballistic cases? The rep responded to my email saying they will have an HC and SG out in May and June. Was wondering how they would compare to the Otterbox? Many thanks in advance ;-)

    Yes.

    The black TPU cases have the red tag on the back. I ordered this exact case and have used it since I received the Thunderbolt.

    I have to say the case is AWESOME! The red tag easily pulls right off. Once the tag is removed the case is all black.

    Is the shiny part of the case gel like? Great looking case, just worried if it will stick in your pocket.

    here's the case i got for my phone. i have to save for 7 bucks, i love it. it actually has that soft plastic feel. no slippery plastic, and definitely clips together to from a strong, solid feel. i would say as far as design, it's awesome. and as far as quality, i was honestly expecting one of those crappy ones that you get at mall kiosks, and it may be of that quality but 7 bucks and the soft texture is great!

    Finally pulled the trigger on the black s-line case and I'm really impressed. It's actually three materials, the hard clear plastic (shows the 'HTC' nicely), shiny tpu on the back and a matted tpu around the screen. For some reason it was $8 instead of $5 for some of the other colors but it fits and looks great. This is the first tpu case I've had, how does the fit hold up after time putting it off and on? Also I see it shows smudges but does tpu scratch easily?
