    I've seen a few threads about cases so wanted to share some info and pics for the two I have to show others :)

    First up is the Belkin Bumper/Gel Case. I purchased this from the AT&T store ($34.99~) It consists of two pieces. A Red rubber skin that goes on first then a hard plastic shell that goes over top this.

    Pros:
    • Nice Look with the Two Tone Black and Red Combination.
    • Leaves the Back open for the color of your phone to come through
    • The Rubber piece covers all the way around the screen bezel (Between the plastic and Glass)
    • Covers the factory side keys up in the rubber case


    Cons:
    • Makes the phone a lot wider. You essentially have two layers added (Rubber Case then Plastic Cover)
    • Leaves the back open (Finger prints, slippery feel on the glossy colors) I.E doesn't provide much for better grip




    I just got this case in today from ebay ($5~) No name TPU Gel Case in Clear/Frost

    Pros:
    • Covers entire back of case leaving spacing for buttons, speakers and mic
    • Nice Grip added
    • Does not add much width. (Better phone handling)
    • Fits nicely


    Cons:
    • Does not cover the entire bezel line (Between Glass and Plastics
    • Makes the phone matte looking, covering (Frosting in this case) the color of the phone




    My Personal verdict. I'm going to stick with the TPU Gel eBay case and take the AT&T one back. The grip is better and I kind of like the frosted red look :)

    i have that clear case for my 900. It has a frosted back on it that subdues the cyan a little and makes it less garish in business settings.

    thanks for this entry, very useful. Do you know if the wireless charging works with the TPU Gel eBay case on the phone?
