    Hey all. Just got my z2 Play. First time using a Moto mod phone. How do cases work with this? What case is everyone using?

    Cases only work with no mods attached. They work like any other phone. I'm not using a case. I'm using an Incipio off-grid power pack with wireless charging

    Could you link the bumper you are using?

    There are "classic" cases that block the ports. There are also the "bumper" cases that are compatible with the mods.

    I don't have the link handy, but I found the bumper case on Verizon's website. Still waiting for it to be delivered.

    Is it just the BUMPER at Verizon?

    Well, that was a harrowing experience. I'll blame this on the USPS, but Verizon's system kept changing my address (more specifically my zip code) as soon as I hit "submit" on my order. Didn't notice the first time until it said couldn't be delivered. 2nd time I placed the order over the phone with a Verizon rep. Did it to him too. 3rd time I just used my parents address. . In retrospect, I should have just gone to the store that was halfway between my house and my parents in the first place.

    It did arrive. I like the feel of it, and the mods do indeed just pop on the back like always, but it's got a lip around it, which has the benefit of protecting the screen in DND "glass down" mode, and the lip on the back keeps it just off the camera bump.

    It protects it in the right places. It just feels a little weird when there isn't a mod on it, since it's this super thin phone with a fairly prominent set of ridges top and bottom.

    Recently picked up a Z2 Play and loving it. Cases though, I pretty much need a flip case to protect the screen as it's my work phone. I'm amazed there are no Moto Mod cases, it a flip case that clips on. I've got a traditional flip case for now, but I can see it's going to get annoying when I get a phone mount and other mods.

    I think I might try and make my own case. Get a wireless charging style shell and attach it to a flip case.

    The Marstak flip cases do attach magnetically. They are discussed in the Moto Mods Forum and you can read about it here.

    I have several and it really helps "iiving the mod life" so I can easily take it off to use the vehicle dock or any other mod and put it back on without any struggle.

    Thanks for the link, that's exactly what I am after! Unfortunately for me, apparently Amazon don't ship that to Australia, go figure. Struggling to find them elsewhere.

    What is the purpose of the cutouts for the rear connector pins on aftermarket cases, like this one?
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0724ZT8HX...cUvbUpU5992009
    I would think the thickness of the case would impede connection of any mod.

    Ok, that's what I thought, but I was trying to keep an open mind. 😉

    Are you still pleased with the Verizon bumper?
    How about a pros / cons list for it?

    Where did you purchase the bumper and style shell?

    I like the bumper I bought it at the local Verizon store. You can change mods with the bumper on the phone.
