I've been eying those smoked hard plastic cases. Doesn't look half bad. A lot nicer than expected actually. Think you could grab overall measurements (HxWxD) with it on? In millimeters would be ideal to compare to other phones and cradles to see if it'd fit while protected, but beggars can't be choosers. Thanks!

@ cmags: Here's a pic of it compared to a phone without the case:
I took a quick measurement and I'd say the max dimensions are 63x 116 x 16 mm with the case on. In general, the case is about 1-2mm thick.
@strra: Why yes i did This phone is so much better than the touch pro!
@weenerdog: Yeah, I wasn't expecting much for $6 but this has totally satisfied me. It's very sturdy, with no creaking when squeezed and the two halves clamp together so tightly that it took me a couple minutes to wrestle it apart to put on a screen protector. I carry my phone in my pocket so I needed a hard case that wouldn't stick.

It feels like it protects the phone fairly well, and I've never had an issue where the case has inhibited any normal use of buttons/ports.

FYI - Sprint customer service game me 25% off the case (without purchasing anything else) and gave me free overnight shipping. You might want to try your luck at tele-sales and see if they can hook you up.

I have one of the snap on plastic cases from ebay. The only draw back is none of them have a swivel on the back for a clip.
I had the Instinct before and the cases that Sprint sold were great and they had the belt clip swivel in the back. You didn't have to use it. The round part just pushes through the back and leaves a small rectangle if you don't want the clip.
Many times I don't have a jacket on, or a pocket to put the phone in. Dress pants and khakis are fine, but I can't stand a phone in my pocket when I wear jeans.
I have to have a belt clip.
I ordered one of the universal ones and used some 3M sticky tape to fix it on the back. Working great so far. I just wish the cases available had the option.

anyone find a holster that can fit the phone with a hard case on it? and also has any one had any problems with using any of the magnetic close style holsers. Ive had a couple phones where the magnets would mess them up. I like having the hard case and then being able to put it in a holster and a clip

I have the hard plastic rubberized case like several posters here have. I also have a left over Seidio belt clip. I think it may be from a Hero....don't remember to tell the truth. It was in my junk box. But it fits perfectly with face in. I will try to get a pic up today if I can.
Here are some pics. As you can see, it will work face out, but who wants that?
