    I've got the Shell/Holster Combo pictured. The Verizon rep put it together for me. Now I'd like to install an extended battery. Is there a good way to get the back cover off without breaking my phone. It would be nice. Thanks.[attachment=12:20100731113757.jpg]

    Its really not that hard to get off once ya figure it out. Using a fingernail or a butter knife simply pry the little tabs off the edge of the phone with the keyboard slid out and then pull the case gently and it should pop right off. Hope this helps!!!

    Hopefully you don't plan on the extended battery still fitting within that same case.

    I saw a friend have it on another smartphone and saw that it did not interfer with the phone but still gave it a moderate level of protection. Obviously it is not water tight but it is tough enough for me in my field of work as I am in the field daily and it can't add a lot of weight or mass to the size of the phone. The Otter Box does it for me and I recommend it to others.

    That's a great looking case...does it have any type of soft touch coating or paint on it? If not I think I might get one of those...thanks for the link.

    I ordered the blue case (picture attached) from Verizon when I[b] ordered my phone. Is anyone using one like it? If so, do you have any trouble accessing any of the buttons? My phone and case will be here tomorrow and I'll know for myself then.



    Also, Verizon has a slicone case that comes in black or [b]HOT pink (I mean really hot pink!). Has anyone tried one of those?



    UPDATE: I bought the blue case and while it is a sharp looking case, I have two problems with it. First, it's very difficult to remove! It snaps on very tight, which is good until you have to remove the battery! Second, it is a very slick, smooth plastic so it is pretty slippery, especially if your hand is damp. I've ordered the silicone case in black from Verizon and will have it next week.




    UPDATE: The Body Glove case as sold by Verizon [b]does not come with the kickstand belt clip. Body Glove said Verizon has chosen not to sell the case with the kickstand.


    I have the Body Glove case. Honestly I don't know if its significantly thicker than the other snap on cases. Here are my opinions on this product.



    Pros: I like the belt clip and the grippyness of the glove material. The clip isn't so difficult to open that it's a problem or inconvenience to use, but it does still do a good job of holding the phone securely. If you don't like or will not use the clip there is a plug that will fill the mount flush with the rest of the case. The Glove material is a grippy texturized rubber. It feels secure in the hand and has minimized slide on a flat hard surfaces I've layed it on. Its kind of like a tire grip and I feel it could help prevent my phone falling from wherever I leave it

    .

    Cons: Its kinda bland. The LG Ally isn't known for its flash to begin with.Though some other cases help with this, the body glove case does not. It only comes in one color your phone will be black on black. The back cover is a huge pain to pry off, though the case is sturdy enough to handle the violent removal. If I want to used a car mount this could be a problem. I worry that the soft rubber surfaces may not prove to be all that durable over the long term. Mine still looks good but in a couple of months I suspect it could pick up some nicks here and there. Its also kinda crappy that Verizon decided to take the adjustable kickstand off the clip.



    I bought mine from Verizon, at first when you said thiers did not come with the kickstand I thought you were mistaken, but your right. I was confused because the belt clip can still be used as a kickstand. My phone will sit up at a nice but non adjustable viewing angle in both portrait and landscape modes. Landscape mode seems more stable than portrait mode with its lower center of gravity. Though both ways are do able, I think the actual kickstand would add some stability to portrait mode.

    I like the case in the image and have not had any trouble with accessing buttons or the slider, but need something similar for the extended battery....can't seem to find much. Any suggestions?

    got the case pictured today....i had ordered a different case probably 3 weeks ago and never got it so i ordered this one on thursday. amazingly i didnt drop my phone on a hard surface until today. thank god for this case. it really is perfect, at least for me. the part that clips onto the phone protects it well and i can keep in on my belt so i dont have to worry about scratching it in my pocket or even worse falling out of my pocket. as far as i know this is the only case that does both. i cant put into words how much i love this case.
