    I'm sorry, but 2 mins and 40 seconds about a silicone case, without a phone?

    As they say on ESPN, COME ON MAAAAN

    I got the same case last week, I cannot wait to slide the phone into it. At least it gives an idea of the size of the phone.

    According to other posts, they already have accessories, at some stores. You should call and check.

    Looks like a nice case until more people start making cases for the phone. Not too crazy about the button protection, I don't really think that is needed

    @benson304: Totally the same! I've been walking around the house with the case, in anticipation!!! That's probably why I rambled on, for so long.

    @Mjcanton Yeah, not sure how the button-protection will work. I'm hoping it will be easy, but not too easy. I don't want the power button getting pressed, because of the case.

    I got this case with my phone today. Someone in another thread this AM said it sucks. It's not terrible, and it works and feels just fine. It'll be more than adequate until the Seidio Innocase II or something else that's much better comes along. I'll tell you one thing, though. It's a fingerprint MAGNET. Also, pretty disappointed in Verizon cheaping out on the screen protectors. It covers no more than the viewable screen despite the continuous glass surface from top to bottom. I believe the aftermarket quality protectors will cover the entire surface less the optical trackpad and the speaker. Dumb, Verizon. Dumb.

    No worries. The button protection is fine, and quite nice IMO. The annoying thing is my headphones don't quite plug in all the way. Not sure if the cutout is too small or if the plastic casing on the plug is too fat. Don't know who's to blame here. Oh, the case is just thick enough so the protruding camera is flush with the outer surface of the case. The phone sits flat in this case.

    "It covers no more than the viewable screen despite the continuous glass surface from top to bottom."

    WOW!!! That stinks. I was really hoping it would cover the entire front surface.

    is the case sticky like those gel-based covers or smooth as slide easily into a holster?

    Measel: In my opinion the case is smooth, not sticky. But, you might want to check with the holster. The cover will probably add a little to depth. So, it probably will not fit a clip-on plastic holster, it should probably be okay with a leather holster, those have a little play.

    Thanks-- this is exactly what I'm going to buy when it get my phone. Hopefully the CAS15 code still works to get 15% off.

    Do you think it offers good drop/shock protection? Does the silicon have enough thickness and give to it to protect it well?

    I used the CAS15. It worked for me.

    Well, it's not an OtterBox. (But, IMHO those are ugly, and make the phone bulky).

    I think, it will work for preventing scratches and small drop/shock protection. It feels more ridged. Which is good, and maybe bad. It's doesn't have "bounce" like the typical silicone cases.

    I didn't want to sacrifice the form-factor, for overly-thick/ugly protection... that's why I got the Insurance... But, if I didn't have insurance, I might go with a thicker case.

    That looks JUST like an EPIK Resin case solt for other phones at degasis.net. If it is an epik case, they are sweet! LOL but only about $6 shipped.

    I ordered the high gloss case and the snap on case to be delivered with my Incredible yesterday. I thought I'd like the snap on case better after looking at them without the phone inside, but once I put the Incredible in the high gloss case, it was perfect (until better cases come out). It fits very snug and the button covers do not inhibit pressing at all.

    As for the Verizon screen protectors -- awful. As said, only covers the actual screen and none of the glass above and below. I am trying to decide which screen protector to order for full protection.

    I just picked this up at a VZW store this morning and it fits my incredible nice and snug. It adds barely ANY noticeable bulk to the phone. The button covers are no problem at all for me...I like them honestly. They don't make it any harder to push. It's not sticky...but tactile enough so that the phone wont slide around. All in all I'm definitely satisfied with this case. Now I'm just waiting for a good screen protector. They tried so hard to sell me those half ass VZ protectors...but I wasn't having it. Summary: Recommended.

    Glad your store sold you acccessories. I went to my local at lunch and he would not even pull the accessories out. All I wanted was the screen protectors.

    If you were to put the phone screen down does the case rasise it a bit so the screen wont touch the surface?

    Correct. I believe there is like a millimeter of protection for the camera on the back as well.
