    I just got the black soft silicone case only to find that it causes the phone not to fit in the car mount, even without the insert in the car mount. does anyone have an idea? or any suggestions on better cases?

    I've yet to see any cases that the car mount will accommodate

    I brought my car mount to the vzw store and tried a few out, but none would fit even after pulling out the mount insert.on the back of that adapter u will find a message stating its made for genuine motorla cases. I dont now if verizon is selling the compatible cases but it didn't appear so.

    A steady hand and a dremel tool (or similiar) and the Droidx fits in the car dock like a champ with the black silicone case.

    It is just the cheap black silicone case that verizon sells. When I got my X there weren't too many case offerings so I bought the cheapest thing verizon could ship with the phone.

    wow, the internet is amazing... so many people and bound to find someone who has similar problems and great ideas...

    I just got my droidx a few days ago, and just mounted the base plate yesterday, and let it 'cure for 24 hours', and then tried setting it all up today only to find out the silicone case/cover does not fit in 'well'.

    for those that dont know, the car kit/holder has an insert... if you dont have a cover/case, then you use the insert.. if you do have a cover/case, then you dont use the insert... and yes it says 'genuine' motorol case/cover...

    i too got the only one that Verizon had at the time i ordered, not even sure of the price, but would expect a warning/comment about the problem, and or have no problems in returning or getting verizon to work with me..

    and in fact, i dont really expect a problem with verizon at all...

    i also have a comment about the car charger... the cord is uber short... even with mounting the phone as physically close as possible to the ash tray/cigarette outlet, the cord is tight and pulls on teh phone mount, and I am sure it will pull the mount off the suction, and orpull the cord / plug out of the outlet... but, I will deal with that as it is still 'hypothetical' and not a problem YET.

    I will have to check the price of the car / phone mount to figure out if i want to bust out the dremel or not...

    I am sure there wont be many other covers that will fit, and i really want something to hold teh phone in place while i drive


    so, unless someone has another suggestion/mount I can use, then i am probably going to get all rotary on this thing...

    I got my soft silicone case from vzw too, but it didnt fit. From your pics I can see that it is different than the one I got though. (The opening on the bottom back speaker is different than mine)

    It was the only kind they had there too. I think you may have gotten lucky with them having that there. I haven't seen any soft silicone cases other than ones like I got when I went to the few vzw stores around here.

    Wasn't sure whether I should dremel the mount or cut the soft silicone. In the end I just take the soft case off and on, it's easy enough with the one I got, which is definitely different from the one shown in the pics. Mine just has a small lip around the front and doesn't cover the front keys. I also bought it from a Verizon store.
