    If you look at all of the cases on the Verizon site all of them say does not fit Ballistic Nylon model.If you plan using a case you will want to go with the the other style.I guess one advantage is that I won't have to worry about them trying to sell me a case for it.This will be like the Lg G2 where the Verizon model would only work with cases made just for it.Looks like the same this time with the Ballistic model of the Turbo.

    Interesting. Didn't see that in the Otterbox details when ordering the 64GB and case tonight. Will know soon enough. I'm not worried though since I can throw a machine shop at it

    Ha, we'll see how indestructible Otterboxes are!

    I'm sure we'll get some user reports today since a lot of folks appear to be interested in the 64GB and the cases are in stock.

    I got a 64 with a red Incipio case. Fits fine. Case gets fingerprints too easy. Not that you probably care.

    Thanks. I ordered mine with an Otterbox due to my line of work (heavy industrial). Yep, fingerprints are pretty low on that list. Good luck with your phone!

    Between the screen replacement guarantee and the tough ballistic nylon back, if I do get one of these today it will go without any case or screen cover.

    My store had the lifeproof. I passed, but may decided to go back and get it. They also had the Otterbox and shell holster as well.

    I'm considering this. Have not used a screen protector for the last several phones, but I hear good things about the tempered glass screen protectors (which is a new "thing" to me). The Verizon store I was in yesterday didn't have them in stock, so presently, just going "commando" as it were.

    I went in yesterday and the sales rep tried to tell me he'd waive the upgrade fee if i got a case, Im like i know theres no fee so just let me check out, First thing i asked for 64gb and he said they didn't have any. Low and behold i end up getting another sales rep and i ask him what do you know they had them, and for my time he threw in free screen protectors and i feel thats all that is needed.

    I don't understand why some reps make things so much harder than they need to be. I don't think they work on commission at corporate stores do they?

    This is a typo on the Verizon website, and is simply not true. I have the shell and holster case as well as the OtterBox Commuter case for my droid turbo nylon stocking 64 gig version.

    The ballistic nylon case is slippery as hell. That's why I'm getting a case. Plus, the edges are soft and not made of the nylon.

    As a follow-up, I've had the Otterbox Defender on the phone for a couple weeks now and it works fine. About the only sticking point is the stock screen protector, which IMO doesn't function as good as I would prefer. Once Zagg or another aftermarket manufacturer gets a glass protector out, I'll pull the phone and install and will check for any abnormal wear at that time. When first installed, the phone fit snug but without issue and it was my first time ever installing a phone into a case. All buttons work fine and earpiece and speakerphone volume is quite acceptable. All sensors work as expected. The case has taken two hits so far without apparent damage to the phone. So far, so good.

    Well.........I guess I missed that little note on the website. I bought the 64GB Ballistic Nylon Turbo via the telephone ordering method with the Otterbox Commuter style case. It fits just fine, I am looking at it now. they did not have the screen protectors in stock. I will order or pick up one of those; Gorilla Glass or not ... I am paranoid about scratches

    I almost went with the OtterBox Commuter case, even though I thought the Incipio case in red looked better and nearly as solid. I ended up going with the Verizon brand Shell/ Holster Combo with Kickstand since it covers the ear piece for while I'm at work, and is easy enough to take off for when I get home. I work in sheetmetal fabrication and am sick of the ear speakers on my phones going bad from exposure to metal dust. Hopefully this helps....
    All three fit my 64GB Ballistic Nylon model without issue.
