    My first post may as well be a review. Yesterday I got home from work to find my Black Rubber Feel Snap-On Cover Hard Case ordered from this link:
    Amazon.com: Black Rubber Feel Snap-On Cover Hard Case Cell Phone…
    was in.

    First I was glad to finally get something over my vibrant. I put it on and the first thing I noticed was it transformed my slim vibrant to the size of a naked iPhone 3G which is fine by me. The holes all match up which is nice and the phone fits very snug in the case which is another plus. It almost has the appearance, to me at least, of a knock off otterbox that my buddy has on his iPhone. It's not all good with it though; the "rubber feel" doesn't really feel like rubber to me, also when plugging in my rca-to-mini cable in my truck the plug no longer fits snug so I hear a nice whinning or static sound when listening to music on it, but the plug is bigger than normal headphones and last night a normal headphone plug fit in perfectly. The quality is pretty good for $8, but I kind of feel like if it drops from too high it will snap open and let the phone out. If that does happen though I am guessing the brunt of the impact would be lessened from the case.

    Pros: Fits snug on the phone, the holes all line up with the corresponding buttons/plugs, it covers the phone in its entirety, and it adds a little bulk to a really thin phone.
    Cons: The 3.5 plug in my truck does not fit snuggly any more, it does not have a rubberized feel in my opinion, and it feels to me like it could snap open on a bigger drop.

    Over all I am happy with the purchase and am thrilled to have something protecting my phone. Coming from an iPhone 3G to this is awesome. I have better service with Tmo from AT&T in my area, and the problems I have had with this phone are mostly due to switching from iOS to android.

    How grippy is it? Does it slide in and out of a pocket or belt case easily? Is it a dust/lint magnet?

    Thanks for the review.

    It does have more grip than just the naked phone, it stays in my pocket nicely which was also good, and it doesn't have any lint stuck on it yet so it's looking good on that front as well.

    I don't like it. I think it makes the phone feel too BIG.

    Yea I can see that, but coming from a iPhone 3G all I really feel is a little longer not thicker. Everyone has their preference. I don't mind the added thickness, to me I like the knowledge that it is in my pocket which I didn't always have when it was at it's thinnest.

    I just got mine in the mail today, and I couldn't be more satisfied considering the $8 price tag. I see what you're saying about not really feeling "rubbery" but I don't see that as a problem. A lot of times when it has the rubbery feel, dust/debris tends to cling more frequently. It does make the phone a little bigger, but considering how thin & light it already is, it's not really an issue.

    I did have a question though......how do you take it apart? it fits so snugly I can't find a quick and simple way to remove the 2 pieces hahah

    Haha I didn't even think about that until I read your post. The easiest way I found though is that little opening by above the volume buttons. Just pry it open there and the top area unhooks and it's easy from there.
