Found these on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TPU-GEL-CA...ht_2017wt_1139

There's a load of them, different colours etc. Not sure what the quality will be like or if they will be identical to the ones available in the box. Will order one and keep everyone posted.

I have the 'clear' one of these. Clear it is not, but it's a good snug fit. Only really differs from the OEM one by allowing access to the SIM tray, but this leaves the top unprotected.

I have the original Nokia in black... But who'd use such a case? Phone looks disappear immediately after putting the case on the phone

New point if view for me. Used to being careful with phones and keeping them as spares

I'm careful, but it's an extra piece of mind.

The more resale the better when it's time for a change, I have an old spare HTC Typhoon to tide me over if needs be.

Is there anything like matte cases are there ? The link consists of only glossy cases :-/

I got myself one of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TPU-GEL-JE...-/200687703852

Covers the SIM slot and is a very good fit for the phone - especially the buttons. Also doesn't expose the Nokia badge on the back of the phone. Tried a couple off Ebay and IMO this was the best. Several different sellers have these "Wave" cases now, different colours and prices - just search for "lumia 800 gel wave"

I decided to buy an OEM case for mine. Figure Nokia know what's best.

They do! The CC-1031 is much nicer than the eBay gel case.
  • Looks better
  • Nicer (less slippery) feeling
  • Better button access

A minor con is that there is no access to the SIM tray, but I'll take that for the added protection of having the corner covered.
