I got my g1 off of ebay and it came with one of those little thin plastic cases and a little plastic case i slip the g1 into. Also the keyboard flipping out is the only flimsy part of the phone and I like my phones to have a solid build. THus...
does anyone use any cases have a very snug fit (like otterbox) but that does not allow the keyboard to flip out. I have begun to like the on screen keyboard especially after using it in landscape mode. Perhaps I can go without hte keyboard and then when needed, take off the case and be like 'ha! take that trendy iPhone user!!'..
so any cases that will enclose the g1 leaving the trackpad and buttons and screen exposed???? I guess the cases do not have to be made for the g1 but should be tested and fit snugly (did i mention i like a snug fit?)
Modify your own case....that's the only option. The G1 has a terrible design, Ill admit it. The cases that were released for this device were awful....believe me I owned six of them and guess what I use now...No case...just the stock pouch that I thought was "Dorky" when I got it.
I keep it in the pouch so that way the phone doesn't get messed up in my pocket...and when I want to use the phone I pull it out of the pouch and wala.
Not to mention that I really like the feel of the G1 with no case on it in my hand.
For the record though, the best case I ever owned was the Body Glove. Problem is that it starts to fall apart after awhile (like most things).
It fits very snug though, and I know thats a priority for you.
