    First of all, yes I've read everything on the other threads about cases. The only problem I've had with the Hero in six months is settling down on a case. I've done naked, eBay cheapies, Sprint silicones, Otterbox, and now the Sprint Body Glove. No Seidio though. I like the way it feels kind of like the silicones but stiff. Yes it's thicker too. I would just like some opinions from people who are using or have used this case. I don't think I'm taking up too much room here since so many have moved to the EVO forum.:)
    Thanks, TC

    I have used the Body Grove for about six months on my Hero. I like it a lot overall, it has a great tactile feel to it, the phone is very secure now in my hand and it never slips like it used to. It is easy to remove when you want to get to the battery or SD card once you get the hang of it (the secret is to start from the bottom). I carry the Hero with BG in a Sprint generic leather upright (w/swivel) belt case and the BG gives it a very secure solid fit in the case.

    It adds a little bulk to the Hero and I think they could have gotten away with making the camera side of the BG a little thinner, but I guess its all in the name of armor protection :p

    I also use the body glove. Now that I've gotten the hang of getting the case off when needed (as Dave said, start at the bottom) I don't mind it at all.

    i originally bought the body glove case for my hero bcause i felt i needed a case, im pretty clumsy when it comes to electronics.

    i liked the way it made the phone feel igger and it was easier to hold. i feel iffy when i hold it in portrait and try to text with my thumb. :/

    i ordered the otterbox commuter case from www.cellguru.com and i absolutly love it. - it is easier to take off than the body glove case
    - it adds the "needed" bulk that i like n feel is safer/more comfortable
    - and it has a silicone inner shell to help with shock
    - PLUS the most imprtant feature for me are the jack covers for the USB n Audio Jack

    I Had my phone without a case for a long time then finally got a body glove for my Hero. It died make the phone considerably bulkier, but it is also easier to hold and really reduces swear and tear.

    I only paid $ 13 for mine online with free shipping and I haven't looked back. Keeping my phone protected its my main goal now and it does a good job .

    I absolutely luv the BG. I'm always dropping the phone, but really dropped it "hard" a good 3 times where any phone would've been destroyed. Some cases wouldn't have survived the drops, but the BG did without as much of a scratch. I've actually grown fond of the little added bulk. Not to mention the design keeps dust from getting under the screen. Every once in a blue moon when I do decide to put on it's b-day suit the soft felt inside keeps it's body looking mint, if I ever do decide to sell her.

    I have the Otterbox too. The main complaint is the charging port plug won't stay in. It works about half way out. Then when I use the phone one of my fingers will get caught on it and pull it the rest of the way out. I've thought about cutting it off but leaving the 3.5 jack plug on. It stays in nice and flush..
