    I believe that someone on these forums reported seeing some at a physical Microsoft Store in a thread in this forum. However, you can buy the flip cover cases that come in orange, black and cyan. Cover for Lumia 640 ? with card holder - Offers - Microsoft - USA

    I found one! Ordered the black one from a vendor in China. Seller had great ratings, so I'm not too worried about ordering from a foreign seller. Free shipping; estimated delivery Tue, Jul 28 - Tue, Aug 11. Three weeks seems reasonable.

    Will let you know when I get it. So excited! The white back door is glossy and slippery. You would think Microsoft would've used a matte finish.

    miguel11691. I posted this in another thread about buying the rear covers on ebay and about if they are genuine. They took about three weeks to arrive.
    I've bought several ebay seller battery door covers for the 640. My experience is they are factory OEM, sort of....? What I mean is they never seem to come with original packaging, but look exactly like they are made in the same factory and OEM, but I think they don't make it through the quality check.

    I have the original Cricket blue from in store purchase in USA. The side buttons work great. I bought a Hong Kong ebay seller orange and it looks perfectly original. But the side buttons sit too low and don't press as positively. I bought a Chinese black 640 cover and the plastic was slightly warped in the button area like it was pulled out of the mold and deformed. They did send a new one for free but the side buttons sit too low and don't press all that well.

    I bought a United Kingdom ebay seller OEM Microsoft flip cover with card slot that advertised that it came in original packaging and it did. It is perfect and the side button do sit properly and work in a positive fashion. Just my experience and in the future I'd rather pay a little more for the buttons to work properly. Especially on the 640.

    Appears to be from overseas:

    Ships from and sold by repairstore(e-Packet to United States).

    The one reviewer states that the buttons aren't correct on this one.

    Amazon has several of them listed (as original too boot); but they want over 20$ for them. Heck, whole phone is only going for less than 100$. Think I will wait awhile before I collect all the colors. Looks like the 640 is selling pretty well so the price on the covers should go down. Until then; blue is pretty nice.

    I'm currently watching This Ebay Listing. I really like my Matte Black back cover right now but might order the Orange gloss version sometime soon. The seller is highly rated and the pictures look legit. 9.89 isn't the cheapest I'm seeing on there either, but something about this listing caught my eye. I'll report back when I do order/get it.

    Personally I like the black rubber casing provided by Metro PCS w/screen protector for $20. It has nice grip and good protection. I had them install the screen protector for the sale when purchasing the phone and they got it perfect after half an hour of struggling...(evil smile)

    I bought a pack of shells for my 635 and one of them was clearly not genuine, and it was the one color I wanted anyways... Had to wait like a month to get it from China too

    I ordered the black flip cover from the Microsoft store, and got it today. Very nice. Seems sturdy, too.

    I drilled two tiny holes in the back, top left, so I could attach a small lanyard and ring.

    I'm always worried I'm going to drop my phone when using it. I do this to all the cases I buy, though some of the plastic cases already have the holes.

    I loop the ring around my middle finger, while holding the phone in my right hand (I'm left-handed). Much more secure.

    Can't really recommend the above cover. It's not OEM. It will not allow the use of a snap on cover as it is to thick, the snap on cover will not snap shut as it should.

    If you just want a black back, it is OK as it fits and the buttons do stick out as they should.

    I got the black battery door from China today. AND IT FITS!

    It arrived in great condition, and wasn't warped. I'm not experiencing the problems others had with the buttons being slightly lower. The buttons line up perfectly!

    I ordered it on July 19. Fifteen days from China seems reasonable to me..

    Unfortunately, the vendor is no longer selling on eBay, so I can't provide a link.

    I bought a cheap cyan case online and it fits good. The buttons sit lower than the original black AT&T case, but I kinda like the lower profile. You can't really feel them, but if you push them they work. I use double tap to wake and rarely use the volume rocker. If you want a case with original type buttons, this really isn't for you.640-phone-case.jpg

    That case looks pretty nice in cyan. Where did you get it?

    I am considering an orange one for fun...possibly and maybe one in black too. I wish it was easier to get them. How is it like to order on aliexpress?

    I did see an orange case at the Microsoft Store for the 640 but as others here have said, it's kinda expensive considering the cost of the phone. I want an orange one but can wait till the price (hopefully) goes down.
