    He did a good review. I'm not sure if I like that rugged back, though. The phone looks so great 'naked' - I'm not sure I wanna cover it up heh! I'm curious if anyone knows how much Sprint is charging for this body glove cover?

    I also like mine naked, but after having the phone for a week the "honeymoon period" of treating the phone like a baby started to wear out. I found myself being less cautious of where I would lay the phone down so started getting worried of scratching the back cover and more importantly the camera lens.

    I'm always curious as to why these sorts of cases only have felt on the center of the back of the case while leaving plain plastic on the front piece and the sides of the back piece. I think I'm paranoid that the uncovered areas will scratch the phone. I mean, may as well go naked if it does.

    Hmm, looks good. Is it just me or does it seem slightly thinner than the Seidio innocase? I'm debating between getting either 1 of those or this one but I am not sure.

    If you bought this, would you be able to return it for a refund within 30 days if you didn't like it?

    Where there any other colors? I wish it was all black in the back instead of grey.

    I don't normally like cases but I'd like some protection incase I drop the phone.

    Do you think it would hold up fairly well if dropped? It seems to add a little bit of thickness on the front side, which may also help if the phone is dropped?

    Are you also a Premier customer? Did you get the 25% off?

    I have a lot of questions =P

    Thanks alot for the early review. I might head into my sprint store to do some persuading lol, id hate for my evo to get all jacke dup before the official release date even hits lol. Might go for the white
     
  8. Did they have the white one with the chrome trim? I was holding off buying a Seido to see if they were going to have it at launch.

    Other then that how well did the 2 pieces fit together? I saw it's a little difficult to pry open, but I'm more worried about if there was any "wiggle room" between the pieces. I'm not sure if I like the way it fits together.

    were you able to see the white one as well? In the pictures it doesn't appear to be as rugged as the black one

    Dunno if its thinner but it added about 1mm of bulk I would say!

    If you bought this, would you be able to return it for a refund within 30 days if you didn't like it?

    Yes, I asked.

    Where there any other colors? I wish it was all black in the back instead of grey.

    The Sprint Rep. said that was the only color they carry.

    Do you think it would hold up fairly well if dropped? It seems to add a little bit of thickness on the front side, which may also help if the phone is dropped?

    I dropped it once. Forgot that it was on my lap, but the 2 pieces never came apart.

    Are you also a Premier customer? Did you get the 25% off?

    Damn!!! I forgot to ask. :(

    Great review mate! Would you know if this would be available at Best Buy? Or in any store upon launch?

    According to the Rep only in Sprint stores. When I bought it they had just received the shipment of only 20 of this covers.

    Yikes! Looks like I need to go to a Sprint Store when they open... :D

    Another question. do you think if I have a Zagg INVISIshield maximum coverage protector, would it fit the case?

    Good quesition! Well, Im currently waiting for mine that I ordered, but I think it shouldn't be a problem. The front part of the case looks to be perfectly flushed against the screen with absolutely no wiggle room, but its really not covering the glass at all, its actually covering the real thin plastic corners of the phone that hold the glass of the screen in place. But I really wont know for sure until I get the Zagg.:thinking:

    Yes? The case doesn't protect the display from scratching!

    That sucks RS & BB aren't getting this case. I was hoping to use my $20 gift card from RS to buy this, but that's ok. There's a sprint store less than 1/3 of a mile from my house. I'll just take a walk lol.

    Now I need to figure out what to spend the $20 on... hmm....

    Thanks a lot guys! This looks better than the seido. I do not like how that case has a huge line horizontally across the back. UGLY.

    I like this case but I am not a pocket kinda guy. Very unfortunate that it doesn't have a holster like the Seidio case does!

    Does the locking mechanism feel secure? I've heard reports of the tabs breaking off both body glove and seidio cases, but for the body glove would be worse for it to come apart on impact.
