    The case is not removable??????
    It is. I was able to get it off after much prying and cursing. Had to pry it apart, stick a piece of plastic in between the two pieces and drag it down to fully separate one of the sides. After that it just pulled apart. I liked the case though. Looks like it protects the phone very well while not masking its beauty. Anyone that wanted this case should just be aware that it is extremely hard to remove once on.

    I used the skinomi techskin on my old galaxy continuum (about 4-5 years ago) and it was ok, but I didn't enjoy the feel of it personally. It had somewhat of a thicker yet softer screen protector. I didn't like the softness and later ended up taking it off and putting a thin cheaper/generic screen protector. Not sure how they are now but I currently have the one of the 3 pack Verizon one applied on my 928. I'm definitely going to invest in a another screen protector that covers edge to edge (like the skinomi one shown). The Verizon one only covers the main display area and it was annoying putting it on and I ended up applying it a little crooked.

    Just wondering, is there a wireless charger that is actually wireless and compatible with this phone? As in I can take it with me on the go and charge up the wireless charger to charge my phone when I'm not in an area where there's an outlet, if anyone knows of such thing that would be great.

    Not sure if something like that exists, but there are other options. Like this.

    Amazon.com: Nokia DC-16 Universal Portable USB Charger - Black: Cell Phones & Accessories

    There's also this.

    Made for their Asha line, so, I'm not sure if it's compatible or not. Plus the micro usb being off to side like that, might make it a little awkward to use.

    And there are also third party options.

    Just so y'all know -- I just now sent an email to OtterBox asking if / when they will be marketing a case for the 928. I'll let y'all know soon as I hear back from them.

    Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

    I tried a couple of the cheap ones off Amazon thinking they'd be temporary. Total crap - the black TPU one messes up the screen (lock screen wouldn't swipe up properly) and you can't work the buttons through it.
    The clear hard plastic thing was cheap! cheap!! cheap!!! and actually damaged the edge of my phone while I was trying to remove the dang thing.

    So don't bother with any of those

    I beg to drastically differ with you ... the black TPU case "fits our 928 like a lambskin glove" ... see my post in this thread #45.

    I have been using this since last Wed = ZERO PROBLEMS - the back fits perfectly, the sides barely roll onto the top glass - the "buttons are sealed" which I wasn't sure how they would work out ... but, again NO problem.

    As I stated then ... FOR those of you that "like this look" of ... BLACK, ON BLACK, ON BLACK ... then, "whatever THEME color you like - we did cobalt blue - IT JUST POPS !!!

    Because of the gorgeous black screen + black case ... the WP8 "TILES" just can't be missed ... and a number of people have stopped me and said ... "What phone IS THAT = VERY COOL??"

    BTW ... the Amazon Black TPU "was $4.50" and is from China ... the prices has gone up and fluctuated ... so, it is quite possible that some cheap imitators have come in?

    When it was announced in February, May was what they said. I'm doubting that. But it did pass through the FCC this past week.

    FYI, I was in a Microsoft Store today, and they still had exactly zero accessories for this phone.

    Got a Ghost Armor screen protector custom cut for me a couple of days ago. They of course didn't have the one made for it in stock. But if you get a skilled employee, those guys can do wonders. I use their products on all if my phones .

    The Verizon stores - and online - have a "very nice" BLACK TPU case - also a blue one - that is better than the one I got on Amazon for $4.50 from China.

    BUT, I am too cheap as the Verizon cases are $19.99 - Verizon also has a pack of 3 screen protectors for $12.99.

    I have made a decision - after using screen protectors for YEARS - that this Nokia 928 "is just TOO COOL looking - to put on a screen protector.

    I am too chicken to not use a "thin case" ... BUT ONCE YOUR "TOUCH" the Gorilla Glass ... it's "just too great" vs. a screen protector!

    In fact ... THIS is what convinced me as the 928 has the same Gorilla Glass 2 as the 920 (I've read) ... plus, after while the "screen protectors just scratch" and look like crap!

    Don't forget that if you have a corporate discount with Verizon, as a lot of us do, you'll get 25% off on that case and screen protectors. Still not a great deal, but worth mentioning.

    Myself, I like the blue TPU case that I got from Verizon on launch day. I bought it as a temporary until cases start coming out, but it's growing on me.

    Also, screen protectors scratch, but they can be replaced for less than $5 each. Gorilla Glass will scratch, too, but it's not so cheap.

    I got one of the TPU cases (in blue) from Verizon when I bought the phone, but I returned it a day later. I must be a complete wuss, because the cutouts for the right-side buttons were flipping sharp! It wasn't comfortable to hold at all.. I would have dealt with it if the case provided better protection, but it felt very cheap to me.

    I grabbed the $5 black TPU case off Amazon. It will work until some legit manufacturers put something out. I wish they hand't left a cutout for the sim card tray because it makes a 1.5" total cutout (headphone, tray, usb) and so there is little protecting that top left corner and leading edge. Having that extra material over the tray would have helped keep the case more snug around the edge. It is nice to not have the slippery surface anymore (almost dropped my phone a few times) and stays on charging dock better. Of course, no interference when wirelessly charging on the JBL or the Nokia plate. The case is not as bulky as the cheap TPU that was on my Trophy.

    I would LOVE a combo solar case that recharges via wireless. Think about it, you could charge anywhere. Realistically, you probably wouldn't even need alot of mA. You could prob design it to trickle charge 90% of the time. You could put the solar cells on the back of the case so just leave it flipped over and it would be trickle charging. On your desk, on your dashboard, under your desk light. Anywhere there would be SOME light, you could trickle charge it.

    Prob a pipe dream I know, but as long as we are making wish lists...

    I have googled and can not come up with anything on this case. Also do the Lumia 920 cases work with this phone? Mine will be here tomorrow and was hoping to have a nice case but they seem unavailable for the most part so far.

    Wow! That looks like a BOMBER case! It looks like it has flap that will cover/seal the headphone and micro-USB ports?

    920's are different in size and shape from 928's. You MIGHT be able to get a flimsy rubber/silicone cover to fit, but I would doubt it.

    I have my doubts. First, no way is this a picture of a case for the 928. The corners are too rounded. Second, if you go to www.tridentcase.com, the manufacturer's site, there's no 928.

    BUT - Trident was the first case company that I contacted asking them to do a 928 case (I loved the Trident Aegis for my 822). So, the page may be up in anticipation of something that is about to come....
