    Wow that is really nice. I wonder how thick it is. My hard case is too thick to allow the phone to fit in an iPhone 3G cradle, but my thinner TPU case is perfect. However, the TPU case does interfere with easy use of the power and side buttons - the Otter looks better designed there. Don't care if the SD card slot is inaccessible, b/c I use mine as a permanent storage w/ apps running from it anyway.

    $35 though... ouch. My two cases were $5 each, shipped.

    Looks nice, but there's no way in hell I'm going to pay $35 for that. The $7-shipped-to-my-door-case from ebay is holding up great.

    After shipping it comes to almost $39 from OtterBox. However if you wait a week or so for stock to come in, it looks like a number of other vendors already have it priced around $27-$33 shipped. That's my plan.

    I just ordered mine. Here is what I did to get discounts.
    Use the coupon code PSPNEagles04 to get 20% off and free shipping. The total is $27.96.

    You can get a little more $ back by joining Mr. Rebates. The Otter Box cash back is 6% (about $1.68 in this case) plus you get $5.00 for joining.

    Anybody receive theirs yet? I'm interested to see what the top and more importantly, the bottom ports look like before jumping. I've had trouble with various cases with cables fitting through.

    I got mine a few days ago. I'll try to take some pictures later today, for now just a verbal description. However, the pictures on the Otterbox site are actually very good. The smooth part is the silicone cover while the brushed part and sides are the plastic cover. The top, bottom, and the front of the phone are protected only by the silicone part about 2mm thick. The back and the side portions of the silicon are about 1mm thick as this is where the plastic part clips on.
    The bumps you see on the sides and the top are part of the silicon cover protecting the buttons. These are excellent and provide fantastic tactile feedback.

    The headphone and USB port are also protected by the silicone part with a flip open cut out. They are easy to open and are large enough not to interfere even with large plugs. There are two openings in the back for the camera and the external speaker.
    Curriosly, the left part of the silicone cover has holes that mirror the button covers on the right. As far as I can tell they serve no function other than a partial opening to the memory card. However, this portion is also protected by the plastic piece so the memory card is fully covered. If you need a frequent access to the SD slot, this case is not for you.

    The overall quality is top notch. The cut outs, plugs, button covers: everything is perfectly aligned.

    The screen protector is included. It is a clear, self-adhesive, dry-apply type. It is slightly smaller than the actual screen, so a slight misalignment won't be an issue. I still managed to be a bit off on the first attempt but had no issues repositioning it. No air bubble at all: make sure your screen is perfectly clean and apply the protector slowly using the included plastic card to push the air out as you lay it down. There are no cut outs for the sensors on top but I did not notice any adverse effect on performance. The protector feels a little rubbery at first but with a little finger grease it becomes smooth.

    So, is this case worth about $30? If spending more than $10 on a case is not for you than a TPU case from eBay is great. On the other hand, if you are looking for a finely engineered and precision crafted piece of protection, the Otterbox Commuter is exactly that. You’ll pay for it but you won’t be disappointed. My only wish: more color choices an an option for a lanyard.

    I bought this as soon as I bought my phone. I love it. Its a wonderful case that looks and feels awesome. Its a real quality product. I had a little trouble with the screen protector but my girlfriend gave me this tip that one of the tech guys had told her about when she got her first smart phone a few years back. Supposedly you spray the STICKY side of your screen protector liberally with some windex, let the excess drip off and then place it on your screen. This is supposed to allow you to slide the screen protector perfectly into place. The girlfriends done it like twice now but i had already applied mine when she told me this. Hope it helps!

    Got mine on the mail yesterday. Ordered it from Amazon for about $25 shipped. Here are shots of the ports on the top and bottom that there didn't seem to be any pics of online previously. The headphone jack cover seems useful but I may trim off the USB cover - its in the way.

    I bought this from Amazon (loyal Otterbox user) and it rocks. I did have a weird problem with the screen protector. The phone wigged out and had a horrible touch lag issue until I took it off. Never seen that before, so no screen protector but the case it self is awesome!

    I bought this over at eBay. Spent 21 bucks on it, and so far so good. I did not use the screen protector that came with, as I had already placed an anti-glare protector on the screen. At first I wasnt sure I would like its functionality. You slide the soft part of the cover over the phone and then slide the hard part over that. At the top and bottoms of the screens, the soft part is not reinforced at all by the hard cover, so is prone to shifting slightly. Expecially the part of the soft cover that runs between the screen and the hardware buttons. The hard cover does tend toward being slippery to hold, expecially after having the non-slick back cover the optimus already comes with. I do wish they had added some kind of texture to it so as not to be quite so slippery. Plus at first the soft cover part would attract every kind of pocket lint/dust ect. But this seemed to diminish to almost nothing as the cover got finger oils ect on it

    All those faults aside, I am glad to have and use this case. I am a contractor, and work around alot of dust and possible collisions toward the phone. I feel so much more secure knowing this peice of tech is as secure as possible. At the headphone and micro usb jack there are flaps in the soft cover that keep dust and debris out. All hard buttons on the phone seem protected and functional at the same time. I would buy again for sure and recommend it to just about anyone.

    I just got mine from Amazon. I like the feel of it a lot. The silicone cover I had before would get stuck in my pocket. I also like the tactile feel of the self adhesive screen cover.
