    does anyone know if there are any hard cases for the bionic with the extended battery case?

    Yes, unfortunately. Its a decent case but the fact that it leaves the top and bottom completely bare really sucks. From most other people's posts we could be waiting quite some time for another option

    I've no issue with the extent to which the case covers the phone.

    I have written to Cellet, and they have answered me back that they are looking into making one, as soon as I hear more form them I will let you know since they have promised to keep me posted. I have tried to impress the fact that there are none out there and that most Bionic users are opting for the extended battery so I have a good feeling something will come very soon.

    Yeah, I also have the shell holster combo. I don't use the clip (not my cup of tea) but the case and texture feels awesome in the hand, fits the extended battery, and the kickstand was the main reason i got the case. I wasn't going to buy the extended battery, but i got it because the case supported it and might as well fill the free space.

    I seem to have problems getting the bionic (w/case) into the car dock. Anyone else notice that?

    There aren't any cases that will allow you to use the dock with the case on.

    When I bought my shell/holster case the salesman showed it fitting in the night stand dock when you remove the insert. Does the car dock have an insert you can remove?

    I like the Vz case for the extended battery and have no issues with it being open at the top and bottom - but I don't generally have it in a situation where damage could occur (other than dropping it). It does have a nice feel to it and I really like the holster (slim and efficient). The Bionic is hard to pull out of the case, so I glued a small layer of felt at the bottom edge of the holster to keep the Bionic from going the last 1/8th inch. Still held firmly in the case, but not so tough to get out.

    Wish they made the case in colors. The Bionic is awfully BLACK when the screen is off. I've accidentally left it places because it sort of blends in to the scenery, being so dark. But, for the extended battery size, there aren't any other options as yet.

    I tried a small piece of felt to see if it would allow the phone to still remain secure. it doesn't, and it was a very tiny piece. I suggest treading lightly if one chooses to prevent the phone from seating fully in the holster. having the phone fall out when getting in/out of vehicles is something I've had happen and my previous phones took a beating from falling to the pavement.

    I agree about black being hard to see.

    I'm still waiting for a decent case that will fit the Bionic with the extended battery.

    Me too! I have actually been looking at universal leather cases just to get me by.

    I wonder if this one would fit...

    Looks like it could possible work, but I personally have zero interest in it.

    I honestly have only used my extended battery twice, mainly because I do not have a case to carry it around with.

    I seriously can't believe we still only have the one ugly vzw case available for the extended battery. I would have thought there would be several by now. I haven't dropped my phone once yet I still managed to get a little chip just below the vzw logo on the bottom, I need a cool ex. battery hard case!

    I'm starting to wonder whether or not one will ever be made.

    Yeah, I guess there is only money to be made from iPhone owners...

    Below is a pic of how I am getting by using the standard silicone case I bought when I got my Bionic. I have to take the case off to charge but at least it offers some protection until I can find a extended battery case that I like.

    Got the Verizonwireless Shell/Holster w/Kickstand today, $25 bucks with Corp discount and free 2 day fedex shipping. It's not great, but it seems to do the job for now. Feels a little cheap in the hand. Haven't tried the kickstand feature yet but that seems pretty weak as well - piece of movable plastic set into the back.

    It doesn't protect the top and bottom of the phone so that makes me a little nervous. Also makes the phone seem HUGE. Time will tell but I was having trouble hearing the ringer when it was in my pocket... so much for the "pocket mode".
