    I have this phone, and it works wonders! I absolutely love how it's waterproof, I had the warp but someone that got stolen and yeah :( never going to see that phone again, but I ended up buying the motorola xprt, that was an alright phone, just didn't care too much for the screen size or the keyboard but it was all I could afford at the time, then I ended up exchanging that phone for the hydro and man, that was a smart move! I love the fact that it's all touch screen, but I do miss having my 5mp camera but that's alright, the 3.2 is awesome too!

    Have you purchase this phone yet?

    Just got this phone todayand loving out so far. I had the ZTE Warp myself, and to be honest I really do not miss that phone at all, too much trouble for what it was worth.

    I'm hoping this phone well get a lot of support from people on this forum and that they can make it even better

    Add a good high quality screen protector and one of these (271094340810) ebay for $8

    and you have a darned near indestructible phone (if you don't abuse it)

    the problem with those cases is while they DO provide scrape and penetration protection they provide almost ZERO drop protection.

    many times corners (the very part you MUST protect) are exposed and they are "HARD" so they transfer the G forces of an impact directly to the phone most of the time.

    the "multi layer" ones provide the real protection. the hard shell secures the phone and provides penetration protections while the silicon shell provides the shock and energy dispersal protection needed in the case of say a "drop"

    thats true but the trick is not to drop it in the first place lol
    i had a pure silicon stretch case for an old phone and it was great for the sides,corners and back, but as luck would have it i droped it right on the front glass, byebye phone
    so no matter what case you use sometimes it just doesn't help

    simple silicon cases suck.

    Hybrids are better. Multi Layer is the best (but bulkier)

    the problem with dropping it is that you never MEAN to drop it. if it was as simply as never dropping the phone we would have no need for cases at all in the first place :)

    alas your case provides zero screen protection either. when are you MOST likely to drop the phone?

    #1 while putting it away
    #2 while retrieving it
    #3 while HOLDING it

    in all three cases its not "IN" its holster and therefore has zero screen protection.

    not trying to be argumentative just explaining the different levels of protection and qualities of different cases.
