Question Tident Aegis case

So I've been doing my research on what case to get my Amaze which arrives Tuesday. I went ahead and decided to purchase the Trident Aegis Blue. From what I've read it a strong and reliable case. The only complaint I've read that is important to me is the lack of three noise cancellation holes on back.

So like one member (don't remember his s/n) did I want to drill three nice little holes in the hard and rubber case yet I want it to still look nice and professional. I emailed Trident three times but they continue to ignore me.... Can anyone help me or give me advice on going about this procedure? I would really appreciate it. Thanks

well the easiest way would be to map the hole's location onto the case by measuring the distance from the camera or lay the back cover of the phone in the case and use a needle to mark the hole's spot. (shouldnt be too hard)

then to drill through the plastic, just use a small drill bit for that. and go slow so the friction doesnt melt the plastic or mess up the drilling....

then for the silicone skin... just put the skin onto the plastic case and with hot needle (heat with lighter or something) just poke through the silicone


that should give the desired effect that your looking for

Start from the top and work your way around it.

Default Update!

So I finally received a reply back from Trident Cases in regards to the lack of three holes on the back case that we need. This is her reply:

Good afternoon,
We have fixed this issue, I apologize the pictures on our website do not reflect the change.

Best Regards,

I have asked her to email me pictures on the updated cases. But for some reason I don't believe this....
