Can anyone tell me what the best case would be for my HD2, besides an otterbox?

I have the US version of the phone which is longer than the European..
And I have searched everywhere, and I am pretty sure that I read that they stopped making otterboxes for these because everywhere is sold out (I can't even find any on Ebay or Amazon!).

I had my phone for a week and it fell out of my pocket onto my driveway and the screen cracked like a spider web.. So now I have to spend about $150 to get the screen replaced, and I am not willing to do so unless I can get a secure case for it..

Any suggestions?

This should probably be in the 'HD2 Accessories' section, you'll get more info there I guess. I personally use the leather HTC pouch which came free with my phone, and it works extremely well! I've had the phone for a year and not a single scratch on it even though it's constantly in contact with my keys and stuff.

Sorry, I didn't realize that there was a forum for HD2 accessories...

But those leather cases are more like pouches, right? As in, you still have to pull the phone out to use it, and its more of just a carrying case?

I am looking for something like an OtterBox, with maximum protection and is always on the phone

Oh right, yeah they are but I personally don't find it much trouble. I think there may be one which is more like the otterbox one as well (by HTC) so try it, the leather gives a nice high quality feeling

The Otterbox Defender is a good case, as long as you don't need to get the phone in and out of the case.

It is two pieces, a silicone rubber case, then a hard plastic shell. If you need to change the battery or reboot the phone by pulling the battery, there is a good chance the plastic shell will split or break.

I've been through two of those cases. The first one Otterbox customer service (very nice FWIW) sent me a new one under warranty. After the second one cracked I just didn't bother. Even cracked it protects the phone pretty well.

There just aren't that many cases for the HD2 since every other day HTC comes out with a new phone.

Found the one I meant, it's here and it seems alright, although I've never used it before.

What about one of these?

You think they would be effective?

I prefer to take the phone out for use. I've had the HD2 since release and always go back to the original case as supplied with the HD2:
