    Thanks, I guess I'll keep my TPU case on for now and think about ordering the Seidio case. Was hoping there was a somewhat noticeable difference.

    Thanks for all the info in this thread, especially Halcyon. I want a case that can be taken on and off easily as I have a desk dock, and one that will protect well but not add a lot of bulk. This case seems to have all of that. I had a Seidio case (Pt-branded BB case made by Seidio) for my Droid X and loved it. Was waiting on one for the Fascinate, so I'm going to order it now. Hopefully it will be a nice snug fit :)

    Is the Innocase II sold in Best Buy under a different name? Starts with "Platnum" or something like that????

    i recieved mine today. i bought it from thecellguru.com. Case is not tight at all, as it kind of rocks side to side in the case. to much play on the sides. It also does not lock very well. the two pieces move around and do not fully lock like the one i had on the INC. however, i could just have a lemon. I have not had much luck with my fascinate altogether...plah.

    I don't find it annoying at all. In fact, it prevents accidentally hitting the power button and turning the phone on or off when you don't intend to. My case is tight, and I'm very pleased.

    Awesome! I hope you like it. Im actually likeing the button cut outs more and more that im using the case. I find they help stop accidental pushing of the volume rocker when turning on the phone. Anyhow good luck with the case. Im thinking about getting a second one now. Blue is looking nice.

    I just got my case in today. The reason I bought it is because of how well it worked for my Droid Eris and I'm happy to say that I am pleased. There is one thing that I don't like about about it and thats the access to the power button. Its a little awkward.

    thanks for the pics all. How easily does this case go on/off? What is the wear like if repeated? I use the car dock and am concerned about lifespan. Thanks!

    The pieces come apart fairly easily. Just a little side to side wiggle of the two halves and it comes right apart.

    As far as wear, if the Fascinate case is anything like my Droid Eris case, it will wear extremely well. I usually took my phone out about once per week to clean and inspect it and have never found anything more than a little bit of dust buildup from my pockets.

    Wow, looks pretty good, actually.

    I just ordered the Otterbox Commuter. I would love to compare it to the Seidio Active X eventually.

    The button cutouts are weird on this case to me. They are like the cutouts on the Verizon kickstand case.

    Thanks for the photos.

    I've had my mine for a couple weeks now. The case no longer fits snug. Like Halycon's first case, when I shake it the phone moves around. Also when I grip the phone the sides of the case now flex. I've really enjoyed this case until now.

    This shouldn't be happening and we would like to replace the case for you. Can you please PM me your order information?

    I'm having this exact same issue, but the case I have is the platinum from best buy. Are they the exact same cases?

    Its really nice to have Seidio on this forum to address customer issues. It rare to see companies today with such great customer service. My brother had a Seidio case on his Iphone 3gs and I loved how it felt. That was the main reason why I went with a Seidio case.

    FYI, I have the Holster for the 'Naked' Fascinate. Fits great, works great.

    If you look on the bottom of the tube that the case came in and it says Seidio, then it is the same case with the pt branding. If you purchased the case in the last 30 days, you can exchange it at Best Buy, otherwise you can PM me and I can assist you with the replacement process.

    Wish I had read this thread before placing my order. Just received mine today, love the look and feel but it just doesn't provide a snug fit. My experience is just like the OP. It moves and slides around in the case. Returning.

    The photos looked great. I just got done ordering this case (Newegg.com has it on sale) because a friend of mine at work has the same phone and got this case. I love how it looks and after just about a week in he's very pleased with it. I'm geting scared now that after I get it in, a month later it'll be unsnug and i'll be regreting the buy. Here's hoping that I'm one of the ones that gets one that actually *stays* snug.

    I've had mine for just over 2 weeks now and I have been loving it. The case has fit snug and seems to be pretty nice. I love the rubberized feel of the outside (which doesn't collect lint) and the felt on the inside (to prevent scratching). I am worried that the release mechanism for taking the case off will wear after a while and simply not lock anymore, as I take it off every night because I have a desk dock but so far it has been great. The one major complaint I have is when gripping the bottom half of the case on the right side it makes a creaking noise like it's losing its snug-ness at that portion, which can be really annoying. Other than that it seems to be a nice case overall, just annoyed at that one bit. I was considering the Active X case now as well, since it just came out not too long ago.
