Default Do not Buy Xentris Snap on Case for Epic

I bought the case the same day I got my phone. I removed the case today to remove dust from under the case and notices that the sides of my Epic were scratched by the case

Not yet. I sent Xentris an email but they haven't replied yet. I'm sure if I complained to Best Buy about it they'd give me a new phone but I don't know if I will. I wish they made a case that was lined with silicone on the inside for the Epic.

This seems to be a common problem for the Epic hard cases. I'm not a fan of hard cases just because of the bulk, but it's good to know they are messing them up.

I'm not a fan of hard cases either, I prefer silicone cases, but since the Epic is a sliding phone all we get are hard cases

cant stand hard cases either....for now until i find the right case (i swear its taking longer to find that than my last car). All im using for now is a bag that i got with a pair of oakleys from sunglass hut. scratch protection....better than nothing. every other type of potential hazzard.....its a nightmare!

do they make a case that does not allow the phone to slide? may sound terribly stupid, but my gf does not really need the physical keyboard...

just curious.

I tried the Verizon gel case at Best Buy, not great, because I don't want the slider either.

Next stop is cheap kiosk at mall, the Verizon phone has same rounded corner
and shape, just thinner, so something might be workable.
