    So the carry holster holds the phone facing in, can you have it facing out? I need a holster with a belt clip and have the phone facing out. I like to be able to clip my phone onto something and have it facing me. Like on my desk at work.

    Try the BodyGlove it has a belt clip and faces out. It's a lot thicker, but it's about $25 cheaper and you can get it at any Sprint store.

    Just received my seido case, it took about 7 days, free shipping and it is hands down the best case I've tried on the hero. It is much thinner than the body glove that I tried and has a great quality feel to it. Granted, I wish the side by the volume rocker was just a tad bit more aligned, other than that is completely worth the $30.

    Edit: just sanded that side slightly and it is aligned now, what a nice case.

    Wouldn't happen to have a picture of this would you? Only reason I have not gotten the seidio case is the fact you couldn't access the headphone jack with it in the holster

    My guess is because iPhone accessories pretty much dominate the shelves. When I got my Hero a few weeks back at Best Buy, the cases/accessories shelf had a couple items for Blackberry, everything else was for iPhone, pretty much every case under the sun - in every color. Same went for Zagg items; slots for one or two "other" phones, but stacks and stacks of Invisible Shields for iPhone.

    Just tried it, while it does seem to work, I don't trust it. It does not hold the phone as well with the screen facing out.

    It would be very very easy to dremmel out the clip a little to allow the headphone jack to be used while in the holster.

    Got My zagg full body shield friday, put it on last nite. Got my innocase today. I wouldn't recommend, based on my experience, combining the full body. I can't get the friggin innocase off. It is so tight, or maybe cuz of the tackiness of the zagg, but i can't get the top off without a fight. This isn't good if you wanna do a battery pull or change your sd card.

    *Update*

    After messing with it a little... if you remove a the side pieces, it makes it easier to take off. Was about to remove the whole shield for the back cover.

    The lady at Best Buy said Zagg told them not let customers put any kind of cases on for at least 48 hrs after putting a Zagg product on.

    Has anyone ordered the Sapphire case? I was wondering how dark the blue was.

    I'm thinking about picking up that color. Not sure yet though. If I do, I will post picture or let you know how dark it is.

    Thanks. So I take it the conclusion is not to use a full body skin with this case but you can use an screen protector only?

    That is what it seems. I'm also going to grab the Box wave anti-glare protector. My case should be shipping out soon. I will have pictures up next week most likely.

    Nice case. I just got a $20 gel case from Best Buy and it's going back tomorrow. Adds way to much bulk around the edges which is annoying because I peel the edge back and it snaps back in place every time I swipe. I think I'll give this one a try. Thanks for the review.

    Do they have a ship date yet? I waited 2 weeks then canceled with them and bought from Seidio directly, got it in 2 days.

    I just ordered mine today from Emobile in hand (An Amazon store). It only cost $44.95 with free shipping and it was in stock, we'll see how long it takes to deliver. Impatiently waiting!!

    I guess I got lucky because the site does show back order now.

    Sign up for email notification or buy from Amazon

    got the body glove case and it was to thick. Used it for two days when I found the sedio case and carrier on eBay. Had the same set up with my blackberry. Best set up I have tried love it. Body glove is going on eBay.

    Got my combo today and I have to say I really like it. Well worth the $45 I spent.

    I got my combo yesterday and have a couple of comments. First let me say I really like it, good quality. The case fits very tight and snug. The feel is kinda soft but a little bit slippery to me. Not bad but compared to the gel cover I was using, the gel had a good non slip grip.
    I like the design of the holder, good felt liner to protect the screen and with the back of the phone facing out I can play music when my wife and I go walking. I do wonder how long the spring will last on the release and worry about bumping something and the phone falling off. Also when you take the phone out of the holder I have to watch to make sure my shirt does not get between the holder and the phone when mounting the phone on the holder. Not a big issue just an observation. And last the one thing I may have to adjust is the holder belt clip is a little tall and kinda pokes me in the side when seating down.
    Overall good product and recommend the combo if you don't want to carry the phone in your pocket. If you do prefer the pocket I would still but just the case.
    I am interested in seeing a 360 design for the Hero, could be better and maybe not.
