    Anyone see any good ones out there? I know verizon has some, but their price is 20 bucks. Pretty steep imo. So far it seems there isn't too much out in the ecosystem.

    I have seen a few on eBay. They're non-branded, though, so take them as you will.

    I looked at the Verizon case but is was too smooth no grip to it at all. The 822 is very slippery naked so a case is a must IMO.

    I agree that it's too slick.... Between that and that it is thinner than my Trophy, which I had put a case on to thicken it up to make it fit my hands better anyway, this just feels too thin, and I'm afraid I'm going to drop it.

    It will take a few weeks before we see some nicer cases out there so I might buy a cheap one off eBay until I find something better.

    My Verizon store had the Otterbox for the 822 and wanted $37 for it. I like a bulky phone but I'm not sure I want that plastic covering the screen.

    I was looking at the Otterbox on the Otterbox website, and was wondering about that... Can it be removed? Is it always there? Hinged? How does it work? I have no experience with that kind of case.

    These shells have two parts. One is a silicone skin, then a shell. At least that's how they've worked before. They are somewhat easy to remove, but they are intended to stay on.

    Wanting a silicone case and not wanting to search around I bought Verizon's overpriced case for the 822. It actually fits very well, snug, snaps around the edges, and is easy to put on or take off. The Lumia 822's buttons are all easily accessed and not hindered by the case. Despite the price, I think this is was a good purchase because of how slippery the 822 is and because it does protect the phone and 'beef it up' a bit as other commenters wanted.

    Will the wireless charging work with the case on? I have never used wireless charging before, so I don't know what kind of connection it needs to work.

    I got the Otterbox for my 822 @ a local VZW today and paid full price for it. Which was ok since I got the phone for free at Best Buy 😁

    Oh, and the Otterbox is a work of art! The plastic screen cover is not removable, but is not a hindrance to the touch screen at all. It makes the 822 feel so much more secure in my hands. It also includes a very sturdy belt clip.

    The only problem I've seen is the hardware camera button is not working for some reason, but that's not a deal breaker for me.

    My 822 camera will not work at all - side button, tiles, apps screen -- the camera will simply not open. Are you having the same issue or is it just your side camera button not working? I went to the Verizon store today and one of their 822 phones has the exact same problem as mine so I am highly concerned.

    The only problem I have is since I put the Otterbox on my phone, the hardware button isn't working, but the Camera App works fine. The hardware button worked fine until I put the case on.

    I hate my Otterbox for the 822. Returning it already.

    The buttons on the side of the 822 are not that large, so the monster buttons on the Otterbox case require a LOT of effort in order to actually activate the buttons. Without the Otterbox I'm having no problems.

    In addition, since the screen protector is not affixed to the phone itself, it's easy to get air pockets and it's slightly tinted.

    Phone is great, returning the Otterbox.

    I picked up the hard plastic clear case today at a Verizon store. I went in to get a silicone one but was happy to see a clear one as I really like the look of the white phone.

    Where did you get the Otterboxes? And did they have the grey/white one, or just the black? I don't want the black one, but I'd really like to look at it before I buy. I'm not wanting to spend that much money without seeing what I'm getting into first.

    I'll have to check there - when I was there (before I went to BB and got my phone) I wasn't looking for cases.

    Wish I knew about the Best Buy free thing yesterday when I got mine! Payed $49 plus tax and I thought I got a good deal because Verizon Store who didn't have any phones, would have charged $99. :)
