    What kind of case do you use for your Storm?

    I was wondering what kind of cases people are using for their storms. I have several different ones, still debating on the one that I like the best. The one I am using right now is the Otterbox Defender series. Don't get me wrong I love this case but it does have it's flaws. The one that is the most irritating is the full QWERTY keyboard in the portrait mode. I have a lot of trouble hitting the letters on edges, ie. a, q, p, enter... The speaker at the top has the hard plastic shell covering it which hurts my ear when I try to talk on it. The cover that the put over the speaker at the top and the one on the back really muffles the sound, so it makes it hard to hear people talking. But other than those few troubles the case works great for me.

    I also just have a plain silicon sleeve that I like to use it covers everything except the screen and the buttons at the bottom.

    I bought a leather pouch style case that fits on the belt. But I am not big about carrying my phone on my side so that eliminates that one. What does everyone else use for their storm?

    Get the Seidio Innocase II with (or without) the belt clip nice and clean looking and has a great feel. But i am sure you will get several different comments here. Plus i guess if you drop it alot you might want to go with the Ottercase

    I personally use the Innotek 2 combo by Seidio, I like the case and the spring clip holster is designed to work with the case. Built very well

    I use the clear bb hard cover and the bb bold leather case to put it In.fits perfect. I had that carbon fiber hard cover but the clearcoat started peeling so I ditched it.

    I use the clear cover as well and I actually love it!! It makes my phone feel much more sterdier and I dont know why or how but it makes typing on it better as well.

    the leather case for the storm doesnt fit with the either silicon or hard plastic covers and i got tired of it being in my pocket so i got the bold case for the clip and extra cusion when i drop it. the bb hard cases are a little tight but still good the crappy ones you buy at the mall fit better.

    I started with the $10 silicone case and now use the Otter Box. I bought it in hopes of keeping dust out since I prefer to carry the phone in my pocket and I noticed alot of lint, granted I wear cargo shorts and put in the lower pocket but still had a fair amount of lint and I already had one phone replaced under the 30 day return policy for dust under the screen.

    Saturday night I divorced the clear plastic screen cover and now I'm happier than pig in slop. The ear piece is still a bit of a pain but I can type again and that was the biggest downside I had, especially with this smoking fast Hybrid BBcrackman gave us I had to ditch that plastic. The overall case covers all the edges of the phone except the lower button area and my last storm had dust under the screen at the top so I'll cross my fingers and keep on going with the Otterbox because it is a brut case and the holster is tough all the way though I rarely if ever use it but the screen is protected in th holster.

    Damn, sorry that was so long

    I was using a silicone case at a time but DANG that thing would get some much lint on it and everything so I went to a hard case that I got from Accessory Geeks and it's awesome :-)

    My Otterbox is apocalypse tough. I love that thing. I actually don't care when I occasionally drop my phone or my 2 yr old starts tossing it around.

    To the OP . It sounds like you have the old version of the otterbox. They have fixed the screen issue however you other concerns have not been addressed. If you have your receipt you can get a replacement free of charge. I'm still testing the new one but not 100% sold on the case yet. I have the same comfort and volume issues.
    So my answer is at work otterbox at home naked with stock holster.
