    I bought one of the Verizon shell/holsters from eBay. My one big issue with it is that the phone is VERY tight in the holster. It is pretty much impossible to remove it with one hand by grabbing the top of the phone like I was able to with my BB. Instead I need to push up from the bottom of the case.

    Anyone else with this problem or did I get a bad case?

    The case I have is just as you describe it. I need two hand to push it out. Hoping it will get easier over time.

    Thanks - I really like the feel of the case, but it is quite tight.

    I just bought this case last night and started using it this morning. I can take the phone out with one hand, but I usually have to give it a "little push" from the bottom to get it started, then I can withdraw it with no problems . . .

    Thanks - I guess that is about what I am seeing.

    Other than the tightness, I really like the feel of the case.

    I use two fingers, one on each of the bottom corners, and press my palm against the phone and just lift my phone out of the holster with one hand. I have the extended battery, which makes the holster a bit snugger, but don't have a problem removing my phone one-handed.

    I think they are all like that..personally I would rather have to push up on it or tug a little harder than have it come out very easy.. at least this way i don't have to worry about it falling out if the holster gets turned upside down by accident.

    Actually, the clip on my holster won't turn to where the holster would be pointing down (allowing the phone to slide out). It will only turn 90 degrees to either side (so you can use it on left or right side), but won't turn beyond that.

    I've also noticed that as I've used it for a few days, the phone is still snug, but slides in and out nicely now . . .

    I Have the shell/holster. I used to have the same issue with pushing it from the bottom. Over time, for me about 2 months now, i can easily grab the top sides of the phone and pull it out. It will get better in time as you use it.

    Just wanted to pop in and say that I had mine overnighted direct from Verizon and it was the same way for the first couple of weeks. Had to use both hands to slide it out. It gets better with time and I have to say I do love the shell holster combo. Had it on my Incredible too and now its a must.
