Just bought the rocketfish case today and it fits great even with the extended battery, thought I would share my pics.

EDIT:
After having the case for a few days I am going to return it, build quality does not seem to be there.

I went to the store today and tried the Rocketfish with high hopes. I currently have the double Incipio case and hate how big and bulky it is.

The Rocketfish case will close.... but NOT all the way. It does have some gaps around the edge on one side (the other side closes fine). I tried on 3 different ones (they were really nice because I told them I was following advice that it would fit) and none of them closed all the way.

I think this case is a hit and miss thing.

(If it wasn't obvious I am referring to it fitting over the extended battery).

I definitely would not recommend anyone purchase this case for their phone. I purchased a similar case last year for my NS.

The case did more bad than good to the phone. Since the inside of the case is not padded with anything you are left with plastic rubbing against plastic, which in turn creates scuff and often times scratches on the back and sides of the phone.

I purchased this from Best Buy and will be returning it right away. I will not be making the same mistake twice.

BUYER BEWARE. YOU WILL CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR PHONE IF YOU USE THIS CASE.
