    Default Flip Case/Cover with volume control open?

    In my searches for a flip case/cover, I ran across one that had the volume buttons accessible........I saw it, I swear. I can't find it for the life of me. Has anyone else seen it, or even better used it?
    I checked everywhere, ebay, alibaba, shopping, amazon, etc.... If you have seen it and know where I might be able to purchase said flip, let me know, please? :-(

    Or the best Flip Cover you have used? I got a free one with my purchase from AT&T because my Optimus G was defective.....I got lucky right?!? I love the Titanium case, but it doesn't protect much. I have read many threads about the best protection and slimmest cases, but I grew to like the flip cover.....Hoping anyone can help?

    Honestly I prefer the volume buttons covered, they are much too easy to accidentally press when hitting the lock/unlock button.

    As far as a case, I HATE big bulky cases. To me it looks super tacky, like when people have plastic on their couches.

    I never really use cases on my phones, but I do like to check them out just to see what they look/feel like. This is how I really ended up liking the flip cover also. I also ordered the Samsung protective case and a few on Ebay, just because they were stupid cheap.

    Now I don't regularly use a case but if I did this would be it. I took one of the cheap $2 Ebay cases and cut the side of it so I could still fully use my flip cover. it fit REALLY well and was super thin. The Samsung protective case is really nice, but it's far too bulky for my taste. I didn't cut that one so i could resell it when it's time for a new phone.

    Here are some pics of one of my $2 Ebay cases.

    Someone should start a service of cutting these cases for others and charge a fee. Easy Money if you're good at it.

    I used an Exacto knife, but a razor blade will work just fine.

    If you make a template out of something hard like plastic or metal then you could follow the template pretty easily.
