    I am contemplating buying this phone since I am a T-Mobile customer. Can anyone recommend an ultra-thin hard shell case for this phone? I have not seen much on Amazon. I am not interested in any gel cases, just hard shell but nothing that will add much bulk to the phone.

    I tried the J&D design one from Amazon and am returning it right away. The back is hard and the rest is TPU and does not fit very well. Incipio is too this and everything else is either bulky or a bobo looking TPU case. I am still looking aswell.

    Not really. Are they hard shell or gel? I haven't used a case in a long long time. I think the last time was on my old Blackberry a la E71 era.

    I never had one, but I always thought the E71 was a classy looking phone.

    I've been looking at several, there's on on Amazon by Caseroxx (in several colors). I'm going to try a few, I'll update if I find a winner.

    I just found a couple interesting cases. Made for the Blackberry DTEK60 (which is another variation of the Idol 4S) One was a snap on hard case, and one leather case. Try Amazon and eBay for the DTEK60.

    If you look back on Amazon, search for DTEK60 cases. They have a few of the ones you're talking about....in assorted colors. I have a DTEK60 TPU case on mine right now that fits much better than the J&D for the Idol 4S. I'll have a couple of the hard back cases later this week.

    Hey, thanks for keeping me up to date. On a sad note I returned my Idol 4S and will hang onto my L950. At the rate apps are dropping from the Store I had a hard time justifying spending more cash on Windows Mobile.

    You really have to do what works for you. My mind likes to entertain the idea of a 950 again but not sure if it makes sense to drop over 100 for a Windows phone that will play third fiddle for me.

    At least you tried it though!

    Well, I tried it and I liked it quite a lot. Windows Mobile suits me well, and I had all of the apps that I needed maybe 1 year ago. I sent back the IDOL 4S prior to the announcement of full Windows 10 on ARM. As long as they continue to remain silent about the future of Window Mobile I cannot find myself investing in their products. If the Surface Phone ever becomes a reality I will be first in line to order.

    I don't jump. I usually do not buy phones locked, I prefer unlocked and buy them straight up. The less I have to deal with T-Mo reps the happier I am.

    Since I can't get the Incipio DualPro anywhere I'm purchasing these:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...pUvbUpU3614653

    I wish there was a case like the DualPro combined with the cool ring thing on the first case. That would be a sweet combo IMHO.

    The ring/kick stand is very cool, and comes separately, so you could stick it to any case. The case it comes with is rather thin and feels like it might be a bit fragile, but the texture is awesome.

    The other case has a nice rubbery feel, but is a fingerprint magnet. They are both good in their own ways, but I'm very much looking forward to the Incipio DualPro case that should be here any day now. I plan to stick the ring to the back of that case.

    WOW. Just received my Incipio DualPro case and it's even more impressive than I expected. Having had the same case for my Lumia 930, I was already expecting greatness. But the thinness of the Idol 4S, even with this case on it, is still incredibly thin. I was actually surprised when I opened the package to see how thin the case is. I'm officially a happy camper. Now to install the ring stand from the other case.... :-)

    Ordered the case with the ring on it should be here sometime before 9. Cortana scanned my tracking info and showed it to me automatically, first time I saw that happen

    Loving the case so far have to see how u hook the kick stand up don't know what I did with the little instructions. But overall its good enough for me it came with a screen protector ill have to sit down and try to get it on perfectly. I'm pretty content with it

    After trying about seven cases... The CoverOn is definitely the winner. The BlackBerry branded TPU case offers the best overall design, but looses it in execution. Rough edges and no cutouts for the rear speaker ports. A couple onf the hard snap on cases work great, the clear really shows off the phone. My only problem with most cases for this or the DTEK60 are the cutouts for the switches, both the CoverOn and the BlackBerry case are full coverage with the nubs for the switches. Unfortunately the J&D TPU case is a nice try but just not practical.

    How are the adhesives? I didn't put mines on yet because if I wanted to take it off and out it back on later the adhesives wouldn't be as strong

    Still running mine au naturel.
    I did that too until I looked close at the screen and saw 2 very light scratches the size of a strand of hair. That's why I went ahead swapped my phone (that and the overheating ) and immediately bought a case and screen protector.
