I dropped it yesterday. Was a soft drop, but it all happened so fast. I was with a friend of mine that has an iPhone with basically Iron Man's Mark V armor on it and he kept saying "that won't be the ♪ lassssssst tiiiiiiiiiiiime ♫". So now I'm a bit paranoid and would like to know what good options are out there. Bing and Google haven't been as useful as I'd hoped.
So does anyone out there have a good one that they can recommend?

I picked one up at the Microsoft Store yesterday. Went in there on my way to Verizon, saw that they had a Trophy Specific hard case, immediately bought it. It set me back $25 but im glad I got it! No bulk, same color as the phone (They had red as well, both colors in a Matte or Glossy finish) and it offers great access to all buttons, speakers, sensors.
Stopped by the Verizon store after picking it up, still no accessories...

EDIT: I found the amazon cases. they look correct but I heard there may be 2 different versions of the Trophy and am not sure these work on the US/Verizon phone.

Its the Technocel case. MicrosoftStore.com doesnt appear to have it online, yet. They were very new to the stores so I would assume that they will show up online sometime soon. Like Mandos, my expearience was excellent. The employee offered to put it on for me, and even let me try the "test case" in the other color to make sure I was happy with my decision.

If you're looking for a sleeve case (I'm notorious with mixing cell phones and keys :/), I'd highly recommend the Waterfield Suede Jacket Cell Phone Case. I highly recommend size 53 since I help them size the case out with my Trophy ;)

I bought a Case-Mate "Barely There" hard case and it is fantastic. It doesn't add any bulk to the phone, it has that same "soft touch" feel, just like the Trophy phone itself does. I've heard from some people that Case-Mate isn't selling the "Barely There" case anymore but I do believe they have others available for the Trophy. I bought mine on amazon, but I think Case-Mate sells directly from their website as well.

Here is a link to the only case that Case-Mate is now carrying for the Trophy. I think there is another thread floating around that someone started explaining that Case-Mate is no longer selling the "Barely There" case.

I found a number of gel skins and covers for my trophy on Amazon, but now it won't fit in the holster that I have. I got a larger gel skin which makes it easier to hold, and relatively cheap. Unfortunately it also makes it longer, and so I have not found a holster that will work. Amazon does have one case and holster combo, but didn't like the look. Any suggestions?

I bought two cases. An empire brand case off of Amazon (Amazon.com: EMPIRE Black Rubberized Hard Case Cover for HTC Trophy T8686: Cell Phones & Accessories). It's a solid case, soft/smooth backing, not too bad. Fits the Trophy well and provides all around protection.
I switched to the Barely There by Case-Mate (Amazon.com: Case-Mate Barely There Slim Case for HTC Trophy - Black: Electronics) too. And that's the one I keep on it.
But I will say, if you want protection from drops, etc, the Barely There really is Barely There. I don't think it would provide the same protection as the Empire case. And it leaves parts of the phone exposed that the Empire does not. Corners are protected with the BT, the sides are protected, but the top and bottom are mostly exposed.
But that's the type of protection I'm looking for. It will depend on what you're looking for.
The Barely There leaves your phone at pretty much the original size, but with minor protection.
The Empire bulks the phone up a bit (not bad) but provides better protection.

Just ordered the Incipio HT-190 Feather case - Amazon.com: Incipio HT-190 Feather for HTC Trophy - 1 Pack - Carrying Case - Retail Packaging - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories
Will take a couple shots of it when it comes in and post for those interested.

Apologies for the low-res images but took it with another camera phone and didn't save the high-res versions down.
I wanted a case that would protect it from scratches on the sides and back which is exactly what the Incipio Feather case does. If you are looking for a case that covers all corners and surfaces, this case is not for you.
The case itself is a single piece that snaps on very easily and securely to the back and covers the entire back and sides of the phone. However, it does not provide any protection to the top or bottom sides of the phone. The material itself is a little bit more flimsy than I had anticipated but still feels sturdy enough to protect it from accidental scuffs and a small drop. The grip itself on the case feels very good, and is a sort of matte finish that does not show fingerprints. I did have some trouble getting adjusted to pressing the volume rocker and it does miss sometimes due to the case, but nothing that I cannot live with. The case tried to adjust for this by not covering a small section of the back where the volume rocker flows into, and it works well enough.
Not really used to giving out any sort of in-depth reviews on this - it does what I need for the purpose I wanted it to do. Feel like its not there while providing some minor protection - although I think the price is a bit high at $25. Case comes with a screen protector (did not use) and a microfiber cloth. Definitely looks good though as if its not there so I am 4/5 satisfied withthe purchase. Feel free to ask any questions.

Since Case-Mate is no longer offering the Barely There cases I was looking at Incipio's cases. They offer the feather ultra-light case Incipio HTC Trophy feather Ultralight Hard Shell Case, HTC Trophy Cases,HTC Trophy Silicone Case, HTC Trophy Hard Shell Case, HTC Trophy Carrying Cases, HTC Trophy Premium Cases, HTC Trophy Protective Case which is pretty similar to the barely there and Silirylic plastic/gel case Incipio HTC Trophy SILICRYLIC Hard Shell Case with Silicone Core, HTC Trophy Cases,HTC Trophy Silicone Case, HTC Trophy Hard Shell Case, HTC Trophy Carrying Cases, HTC Trophy Premium Cases, HTC Trophy Protective Case those two are some good options.
