Default A Good Case

i am trying to find some cheap cases off amazon but i dont know which one is good because so reviews say that the holes dont match or the phone doesnt fit.
One case that i have on my list is
http://www.amazon.com/Wildfire-Trans...S/ref=cm_wl_ce

I will be happy for any suggestions or comments.

Btw i have the HTC Wildfire S A510e which is the shorter one.

I never understood why people would put that snap-on "gel skin" on their phone.. its ugly and does next to nothing to protect your phone.
Just get a leather case like this one: http://www.indigocase.com/products_confort.html
That's the one I use and I couldn't be happier with it. Sure it costs a little more, about 20/25$, but it's worth it. I've dropped my wildfire numerous times.. hell, it went flying down a ski jump once (long story short: alcohol) and not a scratch on it.

i use one of the flip-open cases. looks great, keeps the phone safe etc...only problem is that when it's closed, the magnetic "latch" (for lack of a better word) actually covers the headphone socket....so be careful before ordering off ebay :P

for me i like the normal plastic or hard back covers cuz its kinda annoying to always open the case everytime

ha ha, funnily enough, i moved to the flip open case because it's easier to get access to the phone than those cases that cover the whole thing (like a little leather bag), but you can still close them up (like a wallet) when you need to

I bought an OtterBox from amazon (won't let me post link). Just search 'OtterBox wildfire s' and it should be the first result.

It came with the screen protector as well. I've dropped my phone dozens of times, and even off the top of a 12 foot tall ladder, and the phone doesn't care. Definitely the best case I've ever bought.
