    I got one of the feather light cases at the Microsoft store. It was $25 and it's really not a very good case for the price. I wish Otterbox would make one.

    I opted for the Silicyric case, should be there on Thursday. Black/Black I would like the feather light case which I may get as well when I don't need the extra padding.

    Yes please post a link and photo's if you have them. My incipio case is coming tomorrow and would prefer a holster style. Usually Verizon has a case/holster combo for every phone they sell at launch yet the cases offered for the trophy at Verizon online are terrible. Is this just a filler phone they don't plan on keeping long or am I missing something?

    If anyone wants a Barely There case (which is discontinued), I just purchased and received one from here: Amazon.com: Case-Mate Barely There Slim Case for HTC Trophy - Black: Electronics

    So now I have a Pop case and Barely There ... but I still don't know if I'm satisfied. I feel like Goldilocks, lol.

    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.
    Hey gang, if you havent seen them yet I thought i'd let you know that the case I have on my Trophy is now on the Microsoft Store website.

    Original (same color as phone):
    Microsoft Store Online - Technocel Soft Touch Accent Shield for HTC Trophy
    Clear:
    Microsoft Store Online - Technocel Accent Shield for HTC HD7
    Glossy Black:
    Microsoft Store Online - Technocel Slider Skin for HTC Trophy

    Hope this helps!

    I got the Case-Mate barely there. Very nice case, and does not add bulk. I ordered it off of Amazon.com.

    I have actually been using the HTC Messenger case I originally bought for my Touch Pro 2. I bought it from the WPCentral store for $17.95 plus tax, S&H, etc. It provides a lot of protection and a way to hook it to my belt (without looking too nerdy).

    I noticed that WPCentral is selling a HTC Messenger case for the Arrive, so you may be able to buy that as well. The dimensions on the Arrive, Trophy and Touch Pro 2 are all very similar, with the Trophy being 0.1" wider than the Arrive and 0.14" thinner than the Arrive. Thus the Arrive HTC Messenger case should fit.

    Try it out and let us know what you think.

    There are about 6 Verizon stores in my general area and not one of them has a case for the trophy, let alone the trophy itself. I shopped Amazon and eBay and went through 2 cheap cases before I got a semi-decent expensive one. Its called Incipio silacrylic case..its not bad but I don't know why Bodyglove doesn't make one for the trophy. Ive used their cases before and they're excellent.

    I bought two of them, one for me (black/black) and one for my fiancee (pink/gray). We went through a few of the normal cheapy ebay cases, and found some that fit tightly and securely, but the quality of the material was not reassuring. I found good deals on the silicrylics (17.99 for the black, and 22.95 for the pink), and we are very happy with them. They fit tightly, and look like they would provide good protection though neither of us have actually dropped them yet. We find that the buttons are easier to push now as well, especially the lock/unlock top button. One drawback is they do pick up lint. It's not a problem for her as she keeps hers in her purse, but mine in my pocket shows lint pretty easily, even more so because it is black. Overall I would highly recommend the Incipio Silicrylic to anyone.

    Mine's black/black too and overall it fits tightly except the rubber part is loose where the volume buttons are. That's where there's a gap in the plastic backing to allow for the volume buttons. Its easily liftable with my thumb and allows for dust and dirt to get under that one part. Yours fits tightly all around?

    You can get your thumb under there, or at the bottom of the screen where it is all rubber. I don't think that is really an issue, but it is worth mentioning if someone is looking for something that keeps everything out.

    I went with the CaseMate barely There as well. LOVE it. I think it would protect against any damage to the back/sides/top/bottom for 95% of drops. You would have to drop it in a very specific way for it to damage the exposed parts on top and bottom... usually the edge would take the damage. I got mine on eBay here with no problems:
    Case-Mate Barely There Slim Case for HTC Trophy - Black | eBay

    Then I added a Stealth Shieldz screen protector... works great. Give it time to adhere properly to the screen and it is pretty much invisible, and feels less rubbery than the Zaggs. Got mine from Amazon:
    Amazon.com: 2-Pack Stealth Shieldz HTC 7 TROPHY Screen Protector LIFETIME WARRANTY (Ultra CLEAR)(Stealth Shieldz Retail Packaging): Cell Phones & Accessories

    The combo of these two is good protection for handling the phone. Then when I stick it in my pocket I have HTC's "Messenger Pouch" case from here:
    Amazon.com: HTC Messenger Pouch for HTC Desire: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Heavy duty protection and snug. Almost too snug at first, but molded itself to the phone and case over time and now fits PERFECT.

    Can anyone suggest a good clear plastic case? I already went through 2 junky ones I ordered online- a no name from eBay that fell apart in my pocket and an empire case from Amazon that didn't completely snap together. I'm using a much more expensive incipio silicrylic, but it's only because I can't find a good clear snap on. Thanks in advance..

    I loved my Incipio case... while it lasted...

    The case is GREAT, but fearful taking it off the phone. It will be no problem at first, but after taking it off enough times the plastic will break. Incipio didn't use the best plastic, so around the some of the cutouts the plastic is pron to breaking.

    The weakest spot is by the charging port, I had my case break in 2 weak spots and after that it made one of the corners weak and broke. Now none of them are from dropping the phone, all from removing the case. I do expect something much better for the price tag, but if you never take the case off it's an amazing case.

    It is..the rubber part protects the buttons as well as the rest of the phone, and makes them easier to press. But the upper left part(where the volume buttons are), the rubber part is loose and bows out. This is where the widest gap is in the plastic backing, so it doesn't securely hold the rubber part in place. That's why I want a one-peice snap on where there's no loose ends. Other than that the case is great.
